As well as a general relaxing effect, I find it helps prevent a headache from developing.
Surprisingly, it’s to do with your skull. Your skull is made up of 8 cranial plates, which move rhythmically, but imperceptibly, with your breath. Tension can shift the plates from their natural position.
Simply intending, or allowing, these plates to rest back into their natural position has an immediate relaxing effect. As your skull relaxes, you’ll find your scalp and face relaxing on the outside, and your brain relaxing on the inside. As the whole of your head relaxes so does the rest of your body…
Ready to give it a go? Simply allow your skull to relax – the rest will take care of itself!
How did that go for you?
