Movements for the neck region
Presentation of the Cervica® method
Cervica® is a method of movement specially aimed at the cervical region, where a lot of people have restrained their mobility, and where the movement is limited or painful. The method includes the neck region with its neighbouring regions : shoulders, jaws, head and trunk.
Cervica® is a 10 classes protocol alternating joint mobilization, muscular stretching, breathing movements, progressive reinforcement of deep muscles will bring ease and improved coordination within the whole body.
Cervica® offers :
- Different steps to recognize the three main stairs of the neck,
- Movements that (re)mobilize every level of the neck vertebras
- Movements that stretch the muscular chains of the neck,
- Progressive auto-massages,
- Breathing that frees some cervical mobility,
- Movements that favor visceral motility in the neck and trunk,
- Movements of the neck combined with eye, tongue or jaw movements,
- Progressive strengthening of deep muscles,
- Progressive rebuilding of the neck alignment,
- Movements to be included in daily life.
The method answers a long-time request from movement teachers : a lot of people see the neck region as painful, tight, where teachers do not know “where to start” to unwind and rebuild.
How can this method benefit me ?
- Being able to rotate the head in a flexible manner, without cracking in the neck,
- Better alignment of the head on the neck and the whole body,
- Being able to protect oneself in some agressive situations,
- Reinforce deep muscles that hold the neck,
- Balance the superficial muscles that often invade the action in the neck,
- Avoid some risky movements,
- Find independance between movements in the neck and in the shoulders,
- Being able to start movements by the head and neck.
Cervica® method is not presented as a therapy, even though some of the selected movements can also be found in therapeutic processes. It only aims at hygiene, life quality and prevention.
Only professionally certified teachers are authorized by Blandine Calais-Germain to teach the whole protocol.
