Stretching can help low back pain

Shiatsu Assisted side roll

Shiatsu Assisted side roll

A simple side roll can help low back and hip pain.
Lay flat on your back
Pull on knee up to be perpendicular to your back
Let your leg fall to the opposite side, keep shoulders flat to the ground
If you are more flexible lay on the side of your bed and let your leg fall off the bed, again remember to keep your shoulders flat to the bed.

 

Shiatsu is also referred to as ‘lazy mans yoga’

Shiatsu can offer the same benefits as stretching alone but also allows you to completely relax while the practitioner counterweights the stretch.
