IG: A little ❤️ for the shoulder… You may place the ball at different points around your shoulder blade as needed. Some juicy spots include but aren’t limited to: 💥inner border of the scapula (rhomboids, mid n lower traps) For that you may place the ball there and gently bring your shoulders together as if to squeeze the ball between your blades. You may also do a rotating shrugging motion with your shoulder which feels amazing! Move the ball according to where you feel pressure is needed. 💥upper border of scapula (Lev scap, upper traps) Here you may also do the shrugging rotation of the shoulder, raise your arm and rotate it as well. 💥outer border of scapular (Lats, teres major & minor) Performing this as shown in the video will strip these muscles. The areas are very close to each other, main thing is to avoid a spot that may feel like your arm is going dead or you get a shocking sensation (means you’re on the nerve bundle that passes between these muscles). 💥on the scapular itself (Infraspinatus) This is a sweet muscle to release. Feels like death but the kind you enjoy experiencing in a masochistic way😊 imagine tracing an M along the back of your shoulder blade starting from the midline moving outwards. Keep placing pressure on these different points and you trace the line with the ball.
