BodyBack Company - Mini Back Roller
BodyBack Company's Mini 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.
While in massage school in 1995, Paul Nash experienced firsthand the numerous benefits of applying direct pressure to tight, sore and knotted muscles-noticeable relief, more flexibility, and better circulation. He later noticed many of his clients needed a way to manage their pain between visits.
