Healthy Neck stretch with a broom stick

In a previous workshop, I think Esther (or Mia?) described using a broom stick (or something similar) to help stretch the neck while lying down on your back.  It seemed like a better (cheaper) alternative to traction.  But I can't remember the details.  Can you elaborate on it here?

 

Thanks!

Hi Jo,

Yes, you can stretchlie down onto your back and have a broomstick perpendicular to your body, above your head.  From here, roll the broomstick under your head, (holding  the stick with your hands on either side of your head).  From here, you can gently position the stick at the base of the skull and push the broomstick upward toward the crown of the head, thus lengthening your spine and getting some gentle neck traction.

I hope this seems clear!  I find this to be an excellent way to stretch my neck and it can feel really nice at the end of the day.
