Self Fascial Release of the Lower Back

The attachments of the myofascial tissue along the crest of the pelvis and into the side of the lower spine is a place that holds tension and causes pain. This self release eases the tension and allows for better movement and breath in this area. Watch the video for the detail explanation of where to place you fingers, especially the thumb. The small pelvis movements, the arcing of the tail is localizing the release. Then follow with the movement of the leg forward with the knee bent to slacken the tissue to enable you to deepen your hand into the tissue then slowly lengthen the leg for the release of the tissue. Do both sides for a balance of the fascia. This is nice to do after you have practiced all the side lying on two rollers exercises.
