My daily routine - releasing abdominal tension. I try to do self-abdominal-massage every other day but it’s hard to get deep myself without a #tummytool. So I use a mix of blanket, block and massage balls or 🎾 to dig deep. Caution: consult your doctor before you attempt. Not recommended for people with thrombosis, IUD, pacemaker, on antipsychotic drugs or are pregnant. .
Progressive intensity - rolled blanket ➡️ block ➡️ block with tennis ball on top ➡️ block with soft massage ball on top ➡️ block with “peanuts”/regular massage ball on top. 💡As you get deeper or hit a point that need attention, it will hurt. So work progressively.💡
If you are choosing block or rolled blanket, lay it under your navel as you rest your body on it. Use your elbows for support and control how deep you let your belly sink in. Inhale to expand the belly to the block, exhale sink belly into the block. I also like to roll or shake to release particular tension.⌛️Do it for a couple of minute or as long as you feel comfortable. .
If you use balls on top on block, you can be more on target with different structure, organ, reflex points or get deeper. .
It’s normal to feel your pulse, tenderness, soreness, expanding of sensation to further area, blood flow, heat etc. Please don’t go too crazy with it. Do enough to release tension but not having to cry your eyes out. Work progressively. .
