Putting a small weight on the head is the best way to re-train the spine to rest in a friendly relationship with gravity. If you have to carry on your head it keeps the rest of your spine honest. You get immediate feedback if you are slumping, crunching, flattening or exaggerating your spinal curves. This technique has had a tremendous healing effect on my back (and my life) and the backs of my friends, students and clients over the last few months. Try it while you're working and walking to reduce neck and back pain over time. When we are talking about creating healthier habits in the human body, little things make a big difference and have a domino effect on all areas of our lives. The more intimate we become with our body, the more we offer our awareness and intention towards living more comfortably in our vehicle, the more energy we have to offer our fullest selves into the world in service of others.
