The wind relieving pose in yoga stretches your back all the way from your lumbar spine up your neck. It is called the wind relieving pose because it can expel excess gas from the body.

 

• To begin, lie face up on the floor
• Extend both legs straight and point your toes at the ceiling
• Bend your left knee in toward your chest, clasp your hands below the knee and bring your forehead to your knee by raising your chest off the floor
• Lower back down and repeat by raising your right knee

 

How Often?

Hold stretch for 30-50 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side, twice daily

Save on Top Rehab Tech

Scraping, a manual, ancient practice where pain points are worked with a gua sha (smooth-edged tool), reportedly increases blood flow by up to 400 per cent more than foam rolling and massage guns. By breaking up old, damaged blood vessels to promote new growth and healing, these tools are useful for getting into the nooks and crannies of a pain point, especially in delicate areas like along the shin muscles and under the foot.

Tim Tian has taken the scraper idea and supercharged it, creating a manual, triangular tool that blends heat and vibration therapy. “Cold blades stiffen muscles, blocking a deep release,” he says.

The heated scraper device takes just three seconds to reach 50ºC. This helps muscles soften, making it easier to massage away tension, increase blood flow and promote healing. The scraper is specially great for alleviating delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in the quads, and provides a relaxing switch-up from the foam roller slog.
