Neck, with half-roll
A single Wedge configuration on a half-roll is shown. The half roll and Wedge are raising and angling the Point to compensate for the natural curve of the neck.
- Lie, to gently settle your neck onto your Point. Rest the back of your head on the roll.
- Relax your neck, and use the weight of your head to generate the required pressure.
- For more pressure, use your opposite shoulder and knee to roll your body toward your Point, or use your legs to push your neck toward your Point.
- Important: When massaging your neck area, avoid putting pressure on your vertebral or carotid arteries. A simple rule is: never massage a pulse. Be aware however, that the pulse from your vertebral artery may be difficult to detect. Consult with your therapist or doctor if you are unsure.
