Included in the Overcome Neck Pain Course are 37 easy-to-do follow along solo exercises. These are arranged in Levels 1–3, and within each level, go from easiest to more intense.
All Level 1 exercises are simple limbering or stretching movements that work the neck in a single plane. The shoulders are not restrained in these exercises, so they are gentle, and they will show you clearly where your restrictions are presently.

STRETCH THERAPY™ OVERCOME NECK PAIN COURSE
Neck pain is blamed on the kind of pathology seen on X-rays or scans. While these conditions can cause neck pain, the reality is that excessive and unbalanced muscular tension is far more often the cause. This is especially true in recurring neck pain. You can learn how to treat this yourself.

HEAR WHAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY
Wonderful! I am a musician and have been pain free, in my hands, for years thanks to Alexander Technique but have been carrying tension habits elsewhere, along with associated aches, pains and loss of mobility, from the aggressive and uninformed stretching I did as a child working on martial arts and gymnastics. These videos are wonderfully ego free and focus on the nurturing element of this work and the ways in which we can offer ourselves not just mechanical advantage with slow practice but also comfort and joy. Have a wonderful day!
The stretches in this video probably will save my livelihood. I have onset of TOS but have a yet-to-be-diagnosed neck issue which restricts me from doing the normal scalene stretches that PTs give. I cannot thank you enough!
Thanks for slowing the process down and explaining why dropping the jaw down first before taking the neck into extension is beneficial. And, how finishing up with the neck flexion, lateral rotation, and shoulder shrug are good finishing movements.
I almost always stretch, massage, and exercise too aggressively. Thanks for your knowledge and providing a more gentle alternative to "just pulling your neck to your shoulder."
I have chronic neck pain and have tried numerous yoga routines, stretches and fascia release and this has helped me more than anything.
Kit seems to really nail the proper stretches for pain relief without a bunch of 'time wasters' thrown in to make the routine appear more rounded without actually adding anything. Thanks!
