Imagine a rubber band with a knot in it. Just pulling on it will not release the not and weaken the elasticity of the rubber band. If you take out the knot you get more length and more elasticity. We want to do the same with painful knots in our muscles and fascia. One way to do this is by adding pressure with a ball for about two minutes. It will help to release, get rid of waste and flush it with good fluids. A simple demonstration with a dried sponge is at the end. The sponge are our dehydrated muscles that lack flexibility.
