Have you heard of Tech Neck?


It has become so prevalent we have created a workshop that provides tools to help reverse it.

Yes, it's a real thing and there's a good chance you already have it.

Too often we're hunched over as we send a friend, family member, or colleague a text, completely unaware of the damage we're doing to our bodies.

Poor posture wreaks havoc on your body and causes a multitude of imbalances that you'll wish you'd never created.

The good news is that with awareness, common sense, and a few easy yoga stretches, you can prevent and reverse a lot of damage caused by something like texting with bad posture.

So if you text a lot and often get neck & shoulder pain or tension, read on...

Tech Neck should NOT be a thing

The world has been high-tech for many years now and that isn't going to change.

If we’re not on our computers or laptops, we’re on other devices for a good portion of the day.

It can be not easy to unplug.


Many of us text because it’s a fast and easy way to exchange information.


The problem comes when we're using these devices along with poor posture.

It can wreak havoc on our bodies, leading to “text neck”.


And yes, tech neck (AKA "Anterior Head Syndrome") is a very real thing.

So...

How do we prevent Tech Neck?

One simple and easy thing to remember when you’re using your phone to text someone is to keep your head in line with your spine.

As soon as your head juts forward (think “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”), it puts tremendous weight and pressure on the rest of your body.

This creates neck tension, alignment problems, headaches, difficulty breathing, and much more.

And that’s not good at all.

So if you must text, be smart about it.

Practice good posture.

Keep your spine straight and don't let your head jut forward.

Most importantly, take regular breaks from any device.

Stretching or doing some yoga - it's one of the best ways to reduce stress and tension and release tight muscles.
