HeadFloater is a neoprene headband designed to comfortably encompass the skull and relieve head and neck pain and stress. Internal bungee cords connect in a figure-eight cross and attach to hand straps.
Our video shows how the HeadFloater bungees compress and decompress the skull while lengthening the neck: a very pleasurable and therapeutic experience.
Why HeadFloater WORKS
HeadFloater works harmoniously with the anatomy, balancing the neuro-musculoskeletal and respiratory systems. Easy, gentle moves set in motion a series of actions that strengthen your balance and breath.
Although HeadFloater works the very first time, it’s better with daily use. As your awareness is fine tuned, you begin to activate the correct motor patterns for healthy posture and a more attractive alignment. Your back becomes stronger and more aligned. Your head floats upward.
It’s actually hard to miss a day using the HeadFloater. So relieving, to cradle your heavy head and release the tension in your neck and shoulders. You feel so light that you almost experience a floating sensation.
Clinical Advisor Marika Molnar, PT explains why placement of the “figure-eight” bungee configuration is important for cranial release:
“The suboccipital muscles are the small muscles in the upper cervical spine (between the occiput and C2) that can develop tension and muscle spasms from poor posture and stress. This leads to headaches and pain in the neck and spinal column. This upper cervical area is exactly where the most concentrated number of mechanoreceptors are (muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs). These give information about position sense: proprioception for the whole body. Relaxing the tension in these muscles will reduce stress on the entire body as well as improve coordination and increase the benefits of all exercises performed afterward.”
Physical Therapist and PMI certified teacher Kathleen Wiener:
“Upper back and neck tension are common complaints that are becoming more prevalent in physical therapy clinics. With the increase use of computers and increasing number of hours seated at a desk, it’s hard to avoid these aches and pains even in active individuals. Prolonged sitting posture contributes to shortened neck muscles and weak upper back muscles. As a result, smaller muscles not designed to be “postural muscles” have to work hard to keep our head righted in the plane of gravity.”
