Joni Edmunds DPT from Perth Myofascial Release demonstrates how best to use the Body Back Buddy. Using myofascial release best practice, it is possible to obtain longer lasting results than traditional trigger point therapy. Instead of massaging the tightness, she advises holding gentle pressure for 5-7 minutes and until the tight tissue has had ample opportunity to release. Research is finding that less pressure held for a longer time stimulates natural anti-inflammatory production and reduces the risk of tissue damage associated with quick or forceful manipulation.
