Placement: The strap adjuster sits on the forehead at the hairline. The neoprene band circles the head snuggly and sits under the occipital ridge.  Straps should be even and the HF label visible.

Book Size: Rest your head on a ½ inch thick  paperback book. Use a thicker book if  your chin lifts upwards and your head tilts backwards.

Side Extend Move:  Inhale and extend the straps;  exhale and release. Repeat twice. Now reverse and inhale and extend on the exhalation.  Insert thumb into 3rd or 4th. (#1 is closest to the head.)

Single Side Extend Move:  Extend the right strap on the exhale while your head turns to the left. Then extend the left strap to the side while your head turns to the right. Repeat the sequence.

Head Suspend: Move thumbs to 1st or 2nd loop. Straps should  tightly  encircle the head.  Raise bent arms overhead. Interlace fingers & press palms together. Allow head to rest in the HF supported by the straps and your arms.  Lift your head a tiny bit just so you can allow it to UNWEIGHT ITSELF. Feel the weight of your head and then relax your arms so your head rests on the book again. Repeat and then remove HF and roll to a seated position.  

Seated Side Extend on a Chair: Sit forward with feet planted on the floor. Engage abdominals.  Sit tall,  breathe and imagine your  head is floating upward.   Do Side Extend Moves 2-4times. Breathe naturally and then relax arms. Feel  shoulder blades moving closer together. Breathe into the back ribs.

Seated Side Rotation: Extend straps to cradle your head and then turn your torso slowly. Your head and arms go along for the ride. This is a smooth gradual movement. Return to center and do the other side while breathing naturally.

DO NOT HOLD Positions more than 10 seconds. Feel each move and then relax your arms. Then repeat. Always pull gently. Use Head Floater® lying down for a week before trying seated version.
