AUTUMN WELL BEING BLOG
Autumn is officially here and we have been lucky this year to have such a colourful beautiful autumn.
In the world of massage and body work i have noticed how the body is starting to present differently now the weather is changing. The neck is commonly an area which gets effected first.
It's a classic time of year where we go from open neck tops to needing a little more on. This brought me to think how i would like to start my regular blog by high lighting areas of the body which may be effected by our surroundings as a wake up call to support your well being.
The neck is a vulnerable area. It holds your head on your shoulders and that takes precession and strength. We use it for day to day movement and rarely think about the neck unless it stiffens up and causes pain or discomfort. It doesn’t take kindly to the cold, draft or to wind. This years mild run up to autumn has been delightful but are necks can still be sensitive and need protection. This awareness is so important to supporting your wellbeing.
The simples and easiest way to support your wellbeing at this time of year is to keep the neck warm. Either by a scarf or high neck jumper, the vulnerable neck will appreciate the warmth and care you are giving it.
Support your wellbeing with this simple stretch.
