Are you experiencing headaches and/or neck pain?

Neck Pain can be caused by stress, muscular tension, lifestyle factors, poor posture, disc irritation, and irritated nerves. Neck pain is often the result of inefficient neurological stabilization strategies unless acute trauma has occurred. Poor breathing strategies require certain muscles of the chest, shoulders, and neck to over activate causing pain within the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.
