  • A lot of times we can have a pinched muscle in our back and that can be putting pressure on the nerves leaving the spine and going to your stomach which then could result in it being a problem for your. Here is how to release that so it either releases the pain or it eliminates it as a possibility:


    Place your left hand on your left knee. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and with your fingertips find the muscle next to your spine. Press on it and hold. Relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After about 30 seconds there should be a release happening and when it does slowly lower yourself forward onto your right leg. If you can lean over the outside edge of your leg it will be better for your release. Continue holding for a total of one minute. Then release but rest your body there for one minute longer. Then reverse and do the right side.
