How to Relieve Neck Tension – Myofascial Release Suboccipitals

Do you suffer from a stiff neck? Here is a myofascial release technique to help release neck tension. The tool you will need for this myofascial release technique will be a Fenix Rehab System. it has fast become one of my favorite myofascial release tools. Be on the lookout for more variations I will be putting together with this tool in the coming weeks!!!

RELEASE intentionally,
not habitually,

    How reflexive are these myofascial techniques? I don’t know much about these boards. This doesnt seem to be very diagnostic and how does one know if the dysfunction is coming from the “suboccipitals” bilaterally? In my opinion Treatment should only be performed when a tissue specific
    Diagnosis is made. What are your thoughts Mr. Aguilar?

    I have tried the same concept using tennis balls as you had recommended in the Power of Posture book. They do work rather well. I also slide a stick in below the balls, which stays in position by resting on my shoulders, to keep the balls from sliding/rolling out of position. I don’t think the Phoenix is available here in India though. Is there anything I should keep in mind while I’m doing it this way?

    I bought my fenix on Amazon. Works! Theracane is awesome too!

    Great post! I also use the “poor man’s treatment” tennis ball! Be careful that area is sensitive. I now use a shiatsu pillow.

    Been using a foam roller to do the same thing for years. Works a treat.
