Sub-occipital Stretch

Step 1;

Stand upright, with your shoulders relaxed, and place your index finger on your chin.

Step 2;

Use your finger to push your chin backwards - the sub-occipital muscles are small muscles between the bottom of the skull and the top of the neck which is where you should feel a gentle stretch.

This exercise is easier to do in front of a mirror so you can tell if you have tipped your chin upward or downward as your head should go straight backwards.
