The Relax Mat®
Patent Number 5899868

Glut-A-Mat…I just love this name, yet when you hurt, you do what you must do.

Place the Relax Mat® on a firm surface and press and release in the marked areas of your buttocks, as the model is demonstrating. Use the 12/7 principle. Some have released the gluts simply by pressing into the wall with the Relax Mat®, but I find it easier to release these muscles when they are relaxed in a lying position.

Press down one side of your buttocks, then go to the other side and do the same. Remember to use one knob at a time and do not press into bony areas. Do stretches (as shown below), then return to that spot or spots and once again lay on the Relax Mat® using either the higher or lower rounded knob. Remember to use the 12/7 count.

Do your favorite stretches, provided by your health care professional.

This can also be done in aqua therapy, in whatever position works for you. Remember to use the 12/7 count.
