Their position can impact how you look, feel and sound.


As a result of raised shoulder blades, the perception of weight in the hands is slightly increased. This altered perception can make you more aware of the hands, which in turn leads you to fidget or clasp them.

Think of the shoulder blades dropping down your back. Feel the space between the blades increase.

Poor vocal quality

Raised shoulder blades inhibit the ability to produce a rich and resonant sound. Compare your sound with raised, then with dropped shoulder blades. You might be surprised by how much difference that makes. So remember to drop the shoulder blades.

Looking and sounding stressed

We can asses how stressed a person is by the amount of space between the ears and the shoulders. Maximise the space to look and feel more chilled. Also, raised shoulder blades close the chest, creating a defensive impression.
