  • Shoulders Upper Back Rotational | Manual Release

    This release provides an amazing release to restore rotation through the upper back.  Done in stages, you will improve range of motion in the shoulders, upper back whilst acknowledging the connection to the hips.  You will also feel deeply relaxed.  For those of us stuck at the desk or participating in sports that rotate in one direction only (such as cricket) or take us forward (such as hockey) this release is must! No props required.
  • Upper Back Chest Release | Foam Roller

    A great daily release sequence to unravel tension that builds throughout our days at the desk in the car or on the phone. Gentle releases incorporating the breath will release tightness throughout the upper back, chest, shoulders and neck. Ensure you enter and lie on the roller safely with both head and sacrum supported. Lie on the floor before and after to feel the benefit of what looks like very simple movements. Options given for those with shoulder issues. Always work within your safe range of motion. Relax throughout – try and do this with no tension.
  • Upper Back Release | Foam Roller

    An easy but effective release of the stuck stress that can accumulate throughout the connective tissues of the upper back, shoulders and rib cage. This tension is caused by rounded shoulders and forward head posture. If released regularly we will not only feel better but we can help facilitate correct use of the muscles that should be holding us in alignment. Listen out for the cues of rib position in particular to avoid moving from the wrong place and placing pressure in the low back. These movements are small but extremely effective.
  • Upper Back Release | Franklin Balls

    A simple release to target the stuck stress of the upper back, shoulders and also the neck.  Simple movements to find and release restriction, stiffness and tender areas associated with poor postural and alignment habits.  A great daily release to unravel "another day at the desk" 
  • Upper Body Rotation | Foam Roller

    A gentle release of the stuck stress through the upper back caused by postural habits, most occupations and even sports! This will increase range of motion, release short tight muscles of the chest and encourage healthy rotation without misuse of the shoulder. Modifications are provided for those with shoulder issues and regular use of this release may help relieve tension throughout the neck, shoulder and even lower back. Move nice and slowly throughout and take the time to compare your sides before repeating on the other side.
