Do you wish there was a way to unwind the tension in your upper back with one simple move? The Thoracic Mow with Yoga Tune Up Therapy balls is just what you’ve been looking for!
It’s so simple, you can literally do it anywhere. Just grab any sized pair of Therapy balls, I have the Therapy Ball PLUS, and place them on either side of your spine, just below the nape of your neck.
Interlace your hands behind your head and draw your chin in towards your chest. This helps to put the tissues of your upper back and spine on small amount of stretch so as your therapy balls roll down the back of your rib cage, they can seriously work their magic. Lift your hips off the floor and push with your feet so that the balls mow down your back, combing through the multiple interconnected layers of back muscles and fascias. Pulling with your feet, slowly roll the balls back up to start and begin again.
If you find this to be too sensational on the floor, take your balls to the wall – the movement is the same, even when you’re in standing. Watch the video below for the how to and then try this out and let me know what you think!
This is one of my daily go-to’s, mostly because it only takes a few minutes and can make a TON of difference in your breathing, stress levels and overall feelings of well-being.
