The BackMitra is an effective tool helping you to improve posture and strengthen your back.
With only 10 to 15 minutes daily exercise you will get results within a few weeks. Bit by bit your back becomes more flexible and your spine will return to it’s natural curvature. You may even become a few inches taller!
The BackMitra has proven to be a great asset in alleviating and preventing hip, back, neck and shoulder pain. It also gives great relief in conditions like CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrom) and RSI (Repetitve Strain Injuries) / RMD (Repetitive Motion Disorder).
After the retreat, I went to a formal and elegant dinner party, and I was wearing a black dress, bare shoulders, pearls, the whole nine yards. Quite a contrast to Zipolite! At any rate, my dinner companion turned to me, and complimented me on my posture and then the whole table agreed. Compliments are nice but a healthy back is even better. Thanks!
I carry all my stress in my shoulders. They just get very, very tight. And then it gets so stressful, it feels that the tightness creeps up my neck and makes my face tense. At first the BackMitra was intense, yes, but the more I worked with it, the better I felt. Now my neck is free and my face is relaxed.
I use the BackMitra every night before I go to bed. I must confess that I don’t follow the formal sequence but I simply use it to find tension points in my back and shoulders, and release them. It is very relaxing and the stress of the day just flies away. As a result, I am sleeping better than I have in years.
I came to the retreat with a mild case of sciatica. Working with the BackMitra provided lasting relief. I now use it every day. In fact, it appears that I am getting taller, but actually, my older friends are kind of shrinking as they are rounding and stooping with age. It doesn’t have to be that way.
The BackMitra brings an added level of confidence as a teacher. Knowing the sensations of relief and ultimate relaxation has allowed me to fully trust and believe in the power of the BackMitra. It increases body awareness, specifically pointing out each individuals areas of limitation. It guides the rest of the class by simply observing the movements and positions of the body while on the BackMitra. MAGICAL
My experience with Sharon Abbondanza and the BackMitra has been nothing short of miraculous. As a writer and a practitioner, my work involves long periods of sitting. The BackMitra has saved me from prior bouts of back, neck, and shoulder pain. In fact, I just traveled nationwide for six months on a book tour with my BackMitra. I keep it close at hand and use it regularly. In just 15 or 20 minutes I get amazing results. I fondly refer to it as my portable chiropractor!
I have practiced yoga for two decades. The pre-asana session with the BackMitra has deepened my practice tremendously. I now have the sensation that I am activating and engaging my deepest muscles. I can hold all my poses, especially triangle, with a new sense of ease. It has brought my yoga practice to a new level.
