KOAPRO Psoas Massage Tool

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PSOAS REGION

See videos for other ways in which to use the tool.

  1. Lay on your back, bend your knees, and grab the handles of the KOAPRO tool. Pull both arcs into your midsection to help warm up your ab muscles. 
  2. Lay down in a plank position, with your elbows and forearms supporting the top half of your body and your shins and knees against the floor. Place the arcs just above your pelvis bone. 
  3. While remaining in the same plank position, shift your body so that the arcs are placed near your outer abs, just below your ribs. 
  4. Continue to shift your weight in slow circular motions, from your pelvis to your ribs, at varying pressures to relieve tension. First, put greater pressure on one side of your body, and then the other. Inhale as your body is away from the KOAPRO and exhale as you place more pressure on the arcs. You can maintain pressure in a specific area for 5-60 seconds.
  5. For even more pressure, you can spread your elbows out and let your head drop.

COMMON NORMAL SIDE EFFECTS

Bruising, temporary muscle soreness and swelling may result and should resolve within a few days. Apply gentle pressure to minimize side effects.
