Head Balance – Part 1

Drawing of Natural Head Balance restored by the Alexander TechniqueTo find where the head balances on the neck, place a finger in the soft dent behind each ear lobe.  Imagine a line going between these 2 points. The middle of this line is approximately where the head balances on the neck.

It’s often higher than people imagine it to be.

The head neck joint (or atlanto occipital joint) is a crucial balance point for the whole body.  I’ll explain more about this in my next blog posting so keep an eye out for this.

If you can’t wait that long, then why not book an introductory lesson so that I can show you how to free your neck and let your head balance.
