This Mysterious Connection Will Save Your Neck and Shoulders


If you’ve struggled with tension in your neck and shoulders, today’s video might be just what you need.

There’s a connection I’ll share with you that saved my neck and shoulders from pain caused by constant overwork. It might have even saved my hairstyling career if I’d had it back then.

This is a natural connection we’re all born with. Unfortunately, for different reasons, mostly having to do with alignment and posture habits, it gets lost.

What is this mysterious connection, you ask?

It’s simply the connection between your arms and your mid-back.

It might not sound like a big deal, but your mid-back helps you sustainably use your arms.

Without it, your neck and shoulders overwork for every single thing your arms do.

So, this exercise can truly be a relief for your neck!

There are different ways to find and strengthen your mid-back connection, and I chose this exercise because it’s been a game-changer for many people I’ve worked with in the studio; maybe it will be for you, too!

It’s a little tricky to get right at first, but you’ll be on your way to mid-back benefits and huge neck and shoulder pain relief once you do.

Wishing you a strong and connected mid-back!


P.S. Learn this, and you’ll not only find your mid-back and relieve your neck and shoulder pain, but you’ll also tone your arms in the process—one of my favorite benefits of efficient, deliberate movement!

  1. Hi Sydney, I’m a Pilates teacher in the UK and after trying this on myself, I’m going to introduce it to a program I’ve devised for my partner. I think it could be beneficial for him, especially as he spends so much time hunched over a screen at work.
    Thanks for being generous enough to share some of your insights. Having them in snapshots is perfect.

  2. This looks like a great exercise Sydney! I have a client who is always complaining about her neck and
    mid back. I can’t wait to share this with her when she comes again. She made an appointment for the end of November. After Thanksgiving. Thanks again!
