Back Care Tip: The Archer

Target: To ease tension in the area between the shoulder blades by rotating the middle back.

Step 1:   Lie on your side with shoulders away from your ears and have hands together, extended out in front of you. Keep hips square.

Step 2:   Draw the top arm across the body, rotate your head to follow your arm, and rotate the upper body and look behind you. Keep hips square and facing forward.

Step 3:   Slowly repeat 10 times, then roll over and repeat on the other side
