Self-Massage

Sometimes your body just lets you know that you're pushing it a little too hard. Minor aches and pains can appear for a number of reasons, and unless treated, can become an annoying distraction and in some case progress into more serious conditions.

To avoid this (and to make yourself feel a lot better), a simple tennis ball can be used to apply pressure to the area in question. Maintain the ball's position and pressure for between 30 seconds and 2 minutes - this should help to loosen knots that may have developed in your muscles, and is particularly helpful for the back.

This simple technique can be used any time to relieve minor aches, strains and pains - but if you are in need of something more comprehensive, come and see us for one of our Massage Treatments.

Tennis Ball Massage

Upper Body

  1. Stand with your back against a wall.
  2. Place a tennis ball between your shoulders and the wall.
  3. Move side to side and up and down to massage your muscles with the ball.
  • You can also loosen off the muscles in the forearm by pressing and holding the forearm muscles with your hand in this way.

Lower Body

  1. Stand with your back against a wall.
  2. Place a tennis ball between your lower back (or buttocks) and the wall.
  3. Move side to side and up and down to find the knots and massage these with the ball.
  4. If you find any tender points, hold the pressure on the point until the tenderness subsides.
