Self Neck and Back Massage with Lacrosse Balls (Sitting) – Massage Monday #368

Hi everyone, I am Yasuko and it’s time for
Massage Monday. I love my lacrosse balls massager which is
simply two lacrosse balls in a sock. I keep one on the couch under the cushion
and keep another one in the car. I usually put it between my back and the chair
and lean against it to massage my back. I start massaging the back muscles on both
sides of the spine from the top, wiggle myself to massage and hold steady where it hurts
good which must be an acupressure point or trigger point. I then lean forward to drop it a little bit
naturally, wiggle and hold steady to massage, lean forward to drop it a little bit, and
repeat until I get to the lower back. I also massage on and around the shoulder
blade one side at a time by wiggling some more or rotating my shoulder. Here’s how I massage my neck with this. Put the balls on each side of the neck and
squeeze in a circular motion. This feels just like what the massage chair
does. What I love about this massage tool is the
flexibility. You can stretch it apart to target different
areas. If your arms get tired, you can just give
short strokes on the tight spots on both sides, or one side at a time. If your arms are really tired, just hold the
balls and tilt your head to the sides and rotate your neck. I’ve been using this on the front neck muscles
too. This is called sternocleidomastoid. Lightly stroke or circle the tight spot. There are nerves, veins and arteries in this
area so do it lightly. If it feels nervy or it’s building pressure
in your face or head, lighten the pressure before you pass out because you must be pressing
on the nerve or artery or vein too hard. Again if your arms are tired, hold the ball
steady and move your neck. I would massage the front side of the neck
one side at a time to avoid choking yourself. You can see other videos on massage techniques
using lacrosse balls from the link below. I use Lacrosse balls because I want hard pressure. If you like softer pressure, you can use tennis
balls instead. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don’t

    Hi thanks for that helpful tip. I'll organise the balls tomorrow. I use a hot water bottle to do the same job. I have huge neck and shoulder pain. Cold weather drives it mad. Hyper Sensitive to lots of materials and labels which I cut off straightaway. Even necklaces and earrings drive me insane. I had submandibular gland and cyst removed on right hand side years ago (chronic sialadenitis) and I feel nerve damage may be the cause. Think I need to make an appt for accu pressure, it certainly helps.
