sore neck

I have very stiff joints in my neck and I've had them for years. They get better after quite a few trips to the physio but they always get worse again. And that's because I'm a jeweller. The way I sit, the way I work and the way I'm always too involved in what I'm doing to stop and S-T-R-E-T-C-H! I know I'm not the only jeweller to suffer from this. But I just wanted to complain because it hurts to roll my rolling mills at the moment because my stiff neck has upset my rotator cuff and my shoulders don't work properly.

And here's some new work

Two words for you, baby, from a fellow hunched-over crafter.

Back bends.

Anna I have just come to your site through Jo's blog...it is great.
Shula says "back bends" I am committed to the Alexander technique,and see great advantages in controlling the posture while working.
There is an Alexander School in Fitzroy and you could have a session with one of the practitioners. talking about the ergonomics of your craft.
Your back is soooooh important.
