The average person’s head weighs between 10 and 11 pounds. Properly supported from the spine below, the head can feel fairly weightless. However, many people find themselves challenged to find this alignment, and feel every pound of the head pulling on their neck, shoulders and back. Often this can affect their posture.
Moshe Feldenkrais once noted that if the head is not organized in relation to the rest of the self, a person cannot be fully functional.
