Gentle Rocking Tutorial

Length: 0:05:05

Learn how to get the most out of this foundational MELT move. Gentle Rocking introduces light compression to the spine while helping you reconnect to your center of gravity as you gently rock side to side. Perform this move to help relieve stress and anxiety, reduce low back pain, and help your entire nervous system function more efficiently. Once you’ve practiced this tutorial, watch the Rebalance Sequence to experience Gentle Rocking as part of a larger sequence.

Modifications: If you have a scoliosis, we recommend using the Soft Half Roller with the flat side up to provide even more support for your spine. You can also use the Soft Half Roller with the flat side down if you feel unbalanced and need to be closer to the floor. If you are unable to get down onto the floor, you can practice this move standing with the roller against a wall (search Rebalance Sequence Against A Wall).
