Back Stretcher

Living with back pain is often a vicious circle. When we are in pain we automatically tense our muscles. This reinforces bad posture and muscles spasms, causing us more pain. Backstretchers use two proven methods of relieving backpain:

  1. Massage - The rollers are positioned to give you the equivalent of a deep SHIATSU massage.
  2. Stretching - Backstretchers are shaped so that lying across it allows the spine to open out gradually, freeing the discs that have probably been compressed against each other all day.
  3. The result is instant relief!
