Shoulder Rolls

Shoulder Rolls


Releases tension in shoulders, neck, jaw and facial muscles, reduces stress, increases circulation to entire upper body and more.


  • Step 1: Sit slightly forward in your chair, feet flat on the floor, legs at a 90 degree angle. Contract your abdominal muscles slightly, lift up through your chest and lengthen your spine.  Drop your shoulders down your back.
  • Step 2: Place your hands on your thighs.  As you inhale, squeeze your shoulders up to your ears, and as you exhale, drop them down and let your head relax.  If you like, you can open your mouth on your exhale, and let your breath go with an audible “sigh”.  (Sighing releases tension.)
  • Step 3: Repeat 3-5 times, then roll your shoulders up, back and down and return to work.
