Welcome to part five of our six part series looking at moving meditations, or zonal exercises, that help people deal with various chronic ailments in their lives. In this article, we’re going to be introducing the zonal exercise, Thoracic Mobilisation, what it is, how to perform it and it's benefits.
Thoracic Mobilisation is a zone five exercise that is great at sending vital nutrients to the lower neck, thyroid glands, arms and shoulders and as a result, helping with issues such as:
- Neck pain
- Sore throat
- Blocked creativity
- Inability to express emotions
How to perform Thoracic Mobilisation
Tips for performing Thoracic Mobilisation
Here are some tips to performing the Thoracic Mobilisation exercise that we highly suggest you take into consideration to prevent injury or pain:
- Always look at the palm that is facing down
- Do not round your shoulders forward instead, keep your chest up
- Try and keep the arms at shoulder level (in the beginning it may be hard to do this but in time, you will build endurance and get better at it)
- Do not tense or elevate your shoulders but rather, relax them
That is all for now. We hope you enjoyed learning more about the Thoracic Mobilisation zonal exercise. This is a fantastic exercise to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to thyroid, lower neck, arms and shoulders and thus, helping with health concerns such as, hyperthyroid, hypothyroid, asthma and lower neck pain. Next week, we’ll be taking a look at zone 6 which covers the upper neck, face and head.
