Our most comprehensive package of services:
What causes neck pain? Neck and shoulder pain is almost always caused by poor musculoskeletal organization. Why? The average person’s head weighs about 10 pounds. If your spine is well organized and your head is well balanced on top of your spine, it feels weightless. But, when you tilt your head (either forward, backward or sideways) you quickly lose skeletal support. Without skeletal support, your muscles have to do all the work of holding your head up, hour after hour. As a result, your muscles become stiff and painful. In this way, millions of people suffer from pain that is completely unnecessary.
If you’d like to say goodbye to neck and shoulder pain, join Feldenkrais® Institute co-founder and teacher Marek Wyszynski for a workshop designed to promote the comfort, balance and flexibility of your neck and shoulders. Learn effective Feldenkrais strategies to use at work and home, to keep yourself comfortable and pain-free.
