As I have heard it is not so simple for people who I have talked to, but for myself (very tall and flexible) I really feel the pain points resolving when standing up I put one hand behind the head to keep the chin on the chest, with the other one I'm touching the floor when I can and with force "bang" my head towards my knee until they touch. It takes about 10 tries to either side and makes me feel a bit cold later where the knots usually are and pain was.
