All of our exercises to relieve the tension start with shoulders rolled back, head stacked directly over the chest and a nice tall spine. 


  1. Upper trap stretch
  2. Anterior scalene stretch
  3. Levator scapulae stretch
  4. Seated Cat-Cow
  5. Shoulder blade squeeze

*check out our video on how to perform these exercises right at the desk you are sitting at. 

These stretches are great to help activate our upper back, the back of our neck, and our mid back. We often spend all day sitting and rounding forward, so we need to do work to turn on those muscles.
