Why does my ______ hurt?

This is going to be short and sweet. Next time your body hurts, I want you to ask yourself "why?"

The obvious answer is "because _ is sore."

Which may be true, but now go one step further: think about what you did today. What were your habits? How was your posture? Did you move today?

It took me a long time (probably way too long, considering I'm a yoga teacher and Rolfer) to realize that nearly 100% of the time if my neck is sore at the end of the day, it's because of how I used it. There's nothing wrong with my neck, there's something wrong with the way I'm using it.

For me, I unconsciously drop my head when I work, putting a ton of strain on the muscles that support it. Therefore, at the end of the day, my neck hurts.

However, if I don't drop my head forward, my neck doesn't hurt. Voila!

And this can be the magic of why Rolfing works so well. Get out of that chronic holding pattern and let your body return to neutral.

And that's it.
