This release uses the weight of your head to provide points of pressure then adds movement to provide a deeper more effective soft tissue release. This soft tissue mobility release reduces tension to improve posture and position of your head and neck after long days at your desk or after being in the same position for long periods of time. This can be especially useful when transitioning from work or school to dynamic activity such as exercise training or sports practice.
Please watch the video for instructions to perform this MOBO release.
- You may use a towel, book, or MOBO block to elevate the MOBO and put your neck in alignment with the rest of the spine. The position of the forehead and chin should be level.
- Avoid pressing or rolling with excessive pressure that pushes your head down and forward at your end range of motion.
- Avoid pressing rollers on the bony points of your cervical spine. Stay in the muscle areas on the sides of your spine.
- Discontinue if there is sharp, shooting, or radiating pain.
