Sunday coffee times

Tomorrow is Day 1 of the BallsDeepMFR () challenge! As it happens, the focus is on the neck area, so I get to start with one of my own personal favorite #myofascialrelease techniques. The upper Trapezius muscles are a common area of chronic tightness in everyone from desk workers to overhead athletes. The traps are that big chunk of flesh at the top of the shoulder, and the muscle that people are likely referring to when complaining of shoulder tension. You can find the upper portion of your traps by locating the bony spine of the scapula on the back of the shoulder blade, and then moving your fingers directly in front of it: the fleshy mass there is the top fold of the traps. To release, try this: lie on your back with two tennis balls to hand. Find the traps again (by locating the ridges of the scapulae first if need be), and wedge a ball on each side directly between the muscle and the floor. If the balls want to slip out, place a block under your hips to elevate them; this not only helps keep the balls in place, but also adds a little of weight, and therefore extra intensity, to the sensation. Shuffle things around until you find a spot and level of intensity that’s noticeable, but manageable; we’re trying to coax the tissues into releasing, so the overall feeling needs to be a pleasant one. Let me know how this one goes for you- I honestly feel like 10mins of rolling around gives the same effect as an hour of massage!! And of course feel free to comment or DM me with any questions. . #BallsDeepMFR Your hosts: @jennitarma @yoginiinheels @valerie.knopik @megankearney @wildwondermindfulwv .
