Back pain relief with bodyCushion™

Posted by Cynthia M. Parkhill on

We all experience tension in our bodies without knowing why: back pain or tight shoulders from typing on a keyboard or sitting in a chair all day. At Body Support Systems, we turn to our bodyCushions™ for relief from the stresses of daily life.

We recommend at least 20 minutes lying on a bodyCushion™, but often the pressure on our backs melts away after as few as five minutes. So completely do we relax, sometimes we fall asleep while lying on our bodyCushions™.

Relaxation on the bodyCushion™ compounds and enhances benefit during massage or other therapeutic treatment.

What better way to make clients want to come back for repeat sessions with your practice? Simply by lying on your bodyCushion™, they leave feeling better than they did when they arrived.

To learn more about back pain relief with the bodyCushion™, sign up for a free live demo via Skype.

Call us at 800-448-2400, email or click the “Live Chat” button on our website, (Someone is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time.)
