How To Use The SpineBlaster
1. Lie on your back with your feet firmly planted on the ground. Place massager under your upper back. Locate the first two smaller pressure points underneath your sub-occipitalis area and adjust slowly to find the right position for you.
2. You can also apply varying levels of pressure with your body weight and hand movements to determine how deep and how much pressure you wish to apply. Changing the surface which you are lying will also vary the pressure level. Lying on bed exerts less pressure than on carpet or a mat.
3. You can do arm circle to exercise your trapezius muscles while lying on the massager. You may also prefer to use it in conjunction with our hip massager as many others do.
4. For the intense massage lovers, lie on your back with your knees bent with your feet flat on the floor under your knees, raise your hip, lifting your entire lower back off the ground. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, and then return to your starting position.
5. Or you can use a chair to firmly hold your body while raising your hip to lift the lower back off the ground. Your shoulder muscles will feel more pressure this way. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, and then return to your starting position.
6. Lastly, you can use the SpineBlaster in a chair or at the office! Set the tool at the top of your chair while waving arms horizontally, back and forth. This will relieve lots of tension during long hours in a chair.
Feeling Discomfort After Use?
Remember it is common to feel a degree of discomfort during the massage itself. The whole point of this massager is to break up muscle tension, adhesions and scar tissue that often lie in deeper musculature. This pain should naturally fade away shortly after you finish your 5-10 minutes session.
More About The Trapezius Muscle
Trapezius is a flat, triangle-shaped muscle in your back. It extends from your neck, down along the spine to about the middle of your back and across your shoulder blades. The trapezius stabilises the shoulder blades and facilitates shoulder and neck movement.
Trapezius strains are commonly caused by overuse. Sitting in front of a computer or driving for extended periods can place stress on these muscles. Cradling a phone between the ear and shoulder, carrying a heavy bag, or playing a musical instrument for hours can cause trapezius pain.
Trapezius strain symptoms include muscle stiffness, soreness, aching and burning sensations. This pain may radiate from the shoulders through the upper back and neck. The injured area may feel warm and tingly. It may swell and the person may have symptoms beyond muscle pain, perhaps in the form of occipital headache, Dowager's Hump, ear ringing, jaw pain, wryneck.
