Back Roller by Body Back Company
BodyBack Company - Back Roller
BodyBack Company's Back Roller Massage Tool is an excellent device for massaging the spinal column. This is the descendent of the original Ma Roller which was developed over 30 years ago. The new rubber rings stabilize the rolling action making it easier to control your movements. By giving a gentle stretch to the spine and a deep massage to the antigravity muscles in the back, the Back Roller Massage Tool stimulates three fundamental lines of energy known to every ancient culture around the world. These three lines represent the very core of man - both conscious and unconscious functions.
What is the Back Roller?
The Back Roller is a tool for healing and awareness, gleaned from the teachings of ancient China. It was invented in 1970 by a Chinese practitioner of acupuncture, who is also a student of yoga.
The Back Roller gives a gentle stretch to the spine, and a deep massage to the antigravity muscles on the back, along lines of energy known to the science of acupuncture.
How does the Back Roller work?
There are three important lines of energy which the Back Roller stimulates: the central line of the spine, which is gently stretched; and the two lines on either side, on which are found the acupuncture YU points of all the internal organs. YU means, "to transport". They can be utilized for healing and for development.
The central line connected to the central nervous system, that is, the brain and spinal cord and the nerves, which connect to the muscles, skin, eyes, ears, nose and other external sense organs. It is more concerned with regulates the conscious voluntary functions of humans. The two lines on which the YU points lie are connected to the autonomic nervous system. It is this nervous system which regulates the vital functions of the internal organs, the pulsing of the heart, the secretion of the glands, the rhythmic movement of the stomach and intestines and so on. It is concerned with the more unconscious involuntary processes.
These two systems of nerves are related like day to night. They complete a circuit of energies. However, normally speaking, even in a healthy individual there are tensions and blocks everywhere along the circuit. The Back Roller brings in energy to free these tensions and blocks, and restores the natural flow.

How to use the Back Roller
Although the Back Roller may be used for the thighs, calves and feet, its main use is for the back. The idea is to allow the Back Roller to sink in gently and penetrate every point.
Lie relaxed on a flat surface. Have the Back Roller centered under the head, Raise the knees. Give the Back Roller a light push down with arms curled overhead. Catch the Back Roller under the upper back centrally positioned so that the spine passes through the central notch; now lock hands behind the head. Slowly glide upwards by pushing gently with your legs. Seek out tender or pleasurable spots on the back and rest there until tension releases. Move on slowly towards the buttocks and rest wherever you feel tension.
Begin with short sessions and prolong the sessions as skill is acquired. As relaxation deepened, the larynx, the forehead, and then the crown of the head may become relaxed and energized. Remain conscious and do not fall asleep on the Back Roller.
Relax and breathe into the new posture after use. Allow the peace to settle.
Other ways to use the Back Roller
Roll thighs and calves on the wings of the Back Roller. The body is propped up with extended arms pushed against the floor.
The feet may be massaged by standing on the wings and rolling to and from while supporting yourself by holding onto a table or chair.
The Back Roller may be held the wings and applied on the head and neck.
The Back Roller may be held with one hand and tapped gently on the shoulders.
The methods described above require some muscular exertion and should be done separately from or before stimulation of the back.
