How to Use
An Easy Way to Relax Your Entire Back with the Upper Back Back Bolster
To prepare, roll back and forth on your spine 10 times on a comfortable but firm surface to massage and relax the spine and muscles. Then, stand up and bounce up and down, releasing the tension and activating the senses of your whole body.
Carefully lie down on the Upper Back Bolster in a position that feels most natural and relaxing.
Stretch your arms up above your head, parallel to the floor, as you exhale tension. Then breathe comfortably, and slowly move your arms out and down to your sides, palms facing up. Repeat five times (like making a very slow snow angel).
With your arms straight out (making a 'T' shape with your body), breathe deeply into your chest and belly, and then breathe out, allowing your chest and abdomen to slowly deflate. Expand your chest as much as you can, and release your breath like a deflating balloon.
Slowly roll off the bolster to one side and place your hands, knees, and feet on the floor. Do 5 “cat stretches." Breathe in as you arch your back and lift your face to the sky, and exhale as you contract your back and rotate your face down to the ground.
