WHY WE LOVE IT:
Within the Manipura Body Studio i have many clients with troublesome low backs, and this is my absolute favourite tool for helping them expedite their recovery through a Self Care Sequence at home. The Quadratus Lumborum (QL) muscle is a complicated muscle which plays a large role in stabilising the lower back and subsequently contributes to a deep ache in the low back, groin, Sacroilliac Joint (SIJ) & gluteals. Applying pressure to trigger points within the QL muscle can bring about incredible relief, & so, having access to this Four Way Self Massage tool 24/7 within your home is an incredible advantage.
Use it at the first sign of low back pain and you’ll be amazing at the impact it has on your body. Oh, & i should say, its also great for loads of other regions of the body, think neck, shoulders, hands…. the list goes on!
NB * It is importnat to note that the kidneys sit anterior (in front of) to the QL, so please ensure you have an understanding of where the kidneys are located prior to using. As you can see by the picture of QL in relation to the Kidney, maintaining a gentle pressure directed medially (towards the spine) ensures the kidneys are well protected. This is a wonderful asset to anyone with lower back pain, so please call for a chat should you need further information on the safe use.
