Trunk - Abdomen
For increasing space between hips and ribs caused by sitting and bending forwards in life.
Bend forward slightly to slacken your abdomen.
Grasp and lift one side of your abdomen with both hands,
Pick up this “sausage” between your thumb and fingers,
Gently lift, roll, twist and compress this muscle.
You may find it is sensitive, or even painful.
Fine tuning: Explore all parts of the abdomen.
Also explore the area between your ribs and hips on each side of your body.
All these muscles support and stabilize your spine and allow movement of the trunk.
