Pressure Point Release With Small Ball Into Buttock; Specifically Gluteus Muscles and Piriformis

So we’re going to a little pressure point release with our pressure point ball here with Holly who’s a Field Hockey player and has got some tightness in through her hip.

So Holly is sitting on a little blue ball here and we’ve got the pressure into the buttocks focusing on her gluteus muscles and her piriformis muscles and first off we’re just getting her to sit with pressure into the tight spot so when you put the ball in there you often one or two main spots that are quite tender and those are the spots we want to release with pressure first.

So you might hold it for 20 or 30 seconds and then you can work on some movement; rolling around a little bit to create some mobility in the tissue and try to get some release in the muscle somewhat like a self-massage. Now you can play with different positions here, Holly is quite upright, resting on her arms, you can also lean back onto your elbows, you could turn a little bit on your side of the buttock depending on where you need to get at so you might have to modify this a little bit to suit your individual needs.
