Neck Nirvana

I spent last week in NYC walking and carrying a heavy handbag, which made for a tight neck and tense shoulders. So while in Chinatown, I got a fabulous quickie neck massage.  Here’s a fun, easy way to fit in a neck stretch — all you need is a small hand towel.

Stiff neck . . . no more!

Equipment: hand or dish towel

Position: Standing or sitting, hold on both ends of the towel with your hands, placing the middle of the towel behind the back of your head.

Simple exercise: Use the towel to guide your head forward, tucking your chin to your chest and gently tugging forward for a deeper stretch.

Benefits: stretches your neck muscles.

Have fun, get creative, and share your ideas . . .
