  1. Lie side way on a mat. Place a pillow or cushion on your head and between your legs. Place one under your armpit if it makes you feel more comfortable.
  2. Alternatively, sit on a chair leaning on the back of the chair. Choose a resting position most comfortable for yourself.
  3. Partner use fist to gently apply pressure at the base of your spine.
