Arms Behind

Could the key to correcting arm and shoulder pain be found when you don’t use them – when you lie with arms behind? With arms behind, something amazing can happen in your “core,” and in your chest, ribs, and lower abdomen. Your neck and jaw may also be highlighted in a way that helps you learn how to be better organized.

This has been such a helpful lesson for me, even though the first time I did it, I wasn’t enthusiastic. Be very careful not to do anything that hurts. Approach the positions and movements playfully, with an eye toward making yourself as comfortable as possible.
