Neck care

August 8, 2007 RENU

General Neck Care: Prevents neck lines, pigmentation.

1. Always keep your neck straight, posture right so no uneven distribution of pigment around neck.
2. Apply almond oil, massage from left to right in rhythmical, upward-stroking motion, with one hand following other. Don’t apply very high finger pressure. If you start with the palms at the base of the neck, you should finish with the forefingers up under the chin. Continue for 3-4mts.
3. Regular scrubbing of the neck activates the lymphatic glands and removes dead cells.
4. Sleep on a low pillow to keep the neck alignment proper.
5. Angle work so that you can look straight ahead, or sit closer to your work area.
6. It is best to sleep on a firm mattress rather than on a soft bed.
7. When lifting objects bring the object close to you using your legs in lifting, not your back so that u don’t put extra pressure on your neck.
8. While sleeping the neck should be neither bent nor extended, it should be gently supported.
9. Do neck exercises through out the day
1. Sit straight and look straight in front of you. Now gently rotate your neck in a clockwise direction. Do it for 5 times and then rotate your neck in anti-clockwise direction. Do it for 5 times and then come back to your original position.
2. Sit straight. Keeping your chin straight, turn your head to one side looking to the right so that the chin is over your shoulder. Turn your head as much as you can. Hold till the count of 5 and come back to the original position. Repeat the same sequence for the other side.
3. Hold your head in a central position, then lean it as far over as you can towards one shoulder and hold for a count of 10. Your neck may feel rather stiff to begin with. Repeat on the other side making sure that your shoulder remains still and relaxed throughout. Do five repetitions.
