When I knit or spin for long periods of time, I get knotted muscles in my back in a particular spot – between spine and shoulder blade, just below my shoulder. You know the spot?
Many years ago a co-worker introduced me to this funny looking S, officially called the Backnobber II.Â Â You hook one endÂ over your shoulder, centering one of the knobs on your knotted muscle then pull down. It puts deep, concentrated pressure on your muscle and releases the knot.
It breaks down into two pieces, so I take it along to spinning and knitting classes, where I tend to be tense from the learning, sitting and working of little muscles.
It can’t compare to a full body professional massage, but for me it’s magic.
