If your phone is an extension of your arm, if you spend your day locked into a laptop hunch, you’ve probably dealt with some tightness in your neck, shoulders. We all have tension, whether you are carrying a backpack,sitting at a computer all day, doing your daily exercise workout. Our neck and shoulders carry a lot of tension. There could be many reasons why your neck and shoulders feel particularly tight and sore sometimes. Mostly they are caused due to muscle over-use and incorrect movement pattern, resulting the soft tissue dis-function.
But now Rooftree R20 is coming to save you. Follow a few steps below and let’s treat our neck and shoulders a good massage on our own.
Step 1: Choose the right attachment. For neck and shoulders, we recommend you to use the ball attachment or the flat one. You can decide your favourite based on your own feeling.
Step 2: Push and twist the attachment to R20 and make sure it’s locked in place. Long press the switch button for 3 second to turn it on.
Step 3: Use the R20 on your neck and shoulders area. You’d better start on the lowest speed,until you’ve had a chance to assess your tolerance level. Short press the switch button to circle speeds from level 1 to 4.
Step 4: Float the R20 across the muscle of your neck and shoulders area. Slowly glide the R20 up and down the muscle and you don’t need to put any extra pressure on it.
Step 5: When you feel the muscle warm and relief, long press the switch button for 3 second to turn the R20 off.
Now you should be feeling relaxed and full of energy again! R20 comes with a carrying case so you can get yourself a massage anywhere anytime!
And below are some basic best practices to get the most out of your Rooftree R20, whether you’re treating yourself or others.
- Always turn on the R20 before placing it on the body. Not doing so can be a bit jarring on the body or worse, lead to bruising.
- Start on the lowest speed. Until you’ve had a chance to assess your tolerance level, starting out on high can be a bit painful. Also, keep in mind that soreness can be a result of micro tears in the muscle or increased inflammation. Beating the muscles into submission could do more harm than good. More is not always better.
- For muscle activation, recovery, and tension relief, slowly glide the R20 up and down the muscle. Extreme downward pressure on the body is not necessary. Let the R20 massage gun do the work as you gently glide it over the affected areas.
- Remember to relax! You bought a massage gun to relieve muscle tightness, not make it worse. If you’re too tense and flexing the muscle while going over it, you’re not getting the full benefit of the tool. Just breath, inhale, exhale, and slowly move the massage gun across the belly of the muscle. Breathe and relax and remember to stretch. It feels amazing!
