This giraffe photograph was sent to me by a friend and client. It demonstrates the all important head/neck relationship. The neck being free to allow the head to rest forward and up over the spine guides muscular tone of the entire being. The head is the smart end of the spine with eyes, nose, ears and mouth collecting information. It is no wonder that at times we startle and pull “in” to protect the head. But when danger passes, it is important to allow the muscles fibers to rest back to neutral. When the neck frees and allows the head to lead, the body gracefully follows.
