The face and head hold tension like any other part of the body. The only problem is no one thinks to release these pressure points until it is already too late and a headache calls for some TLC. Just like the importance of opening up the hamstring for the balance of the hip and knee, the facial musculature is pivotal in the ease of the neck and shoulder girdle. This work can be done with the hands but is especially nice when using the green spiky ball or small tennis ball. This is wonderful work to do at the beginning or the end of class.
