Move Better TLC: Massage Ball Chest Release

Bad posture no more! Do this daily to ease neck, head and shoulder pain. 
  1. Take a TriggerPoint Performance Massage ball (or lacrosse/tennis ball) and place it smack in the middle of your chest. 
  2. If you have a yoga block, use it for leverage, then press the ball into your chest. Yes, it’s ouchie. 
  3. Twist two times in each direction. Try not to grimace too much. 
  4. Then press the ball into your chest and grab some meat to pull back four times. 
  5. Feel free to repeat in various areas of the chest. And to compare sides before switching, you may notice one shoulder is lower than the other. It’s magic.
