My neck, my back – C-Rest is the affordable solution to your tension woes
As card-carrying members of the desk-bound generation, most of us have at least mild neck and back issues – hey, it comes with the territory of office life. If you’re the sort of person who is putting your physio’s kids through uni due to your frequent visits, we’ve found something that might ease the strain (literally). The C-Rest is a quick, painless and effective tool designed to loosen up the areas that suffer the most from living la vida desk-a.
The story of the C-Rest is something of an overnight sensation – what started as a concept created between a hairstylist and a doctor quickly gained traction online, raising a whopping $750,000 on its Kickstarter campaign to become fully realised. The simple device employs a genius combination of strategically placed acupressure triggers, flexible yet strong spinal support and soothing back relaxers, with the main clincher being that the user simply has to use their own body weight to reap the benefits.
When you’re sore and crampy, waiting for relief can feel like an eternity – so it’s a good thing the C-Rest takes just 10 minutes to do its thing. All you have to do is place the device under your neck while you’re lying down and its ergonomic support will stimulate natural trigger points for (almost) instant gratification. The benefits of C-Rest don’t just stop with pain relief (which is obviously a mad bonus) – use of the device has a flow-on positive effect on upper body stress, posture, flexibility, range of motion and even your mood elevation and mental performance.
