Back Therapy provides massage to the spine within each individual vertebra and will be a positive way to start your day, while you are sitting performing your productive activity such as typing on the computer.

To do this effectively, you first need to sit on your pelvic bones, as this will position your spine in an erect and relaxed position. Move your spine around until you can feel both pelvic bones beneath the seat of the chair.

Now that you are sitting on your pelvic bones, you have the ability to move your spine while it remains erect above your pelvic bones. Your feet can either be positioned safely on the floor, or you can move them back to curl them around the base of the chair. This type of change creates movement and does not damage your spine, but keeps the spine active in movement.

So sitting on your pelvic bones is your first therapeutic process for your back, because this is the only way it will help your spine along with the rest of your body keep moving.

Now the second part of your therapy is to give your body a big stretch, before you start working. A big stretch will wake up your body's muscles in all parts of your upper limbs and torso; making them feel ready to get moving in productive activity.

So put your hands in the prayer position in front of you, then simultaneously take a deep breath and push both hands up vertically in front of you; while guiding the tips of your fingers towards you.

As your hands are raised up with the tips of the fingers pointing towards you, they will to begin to separate out at the palms; but keep them moving higher and higher until both hands are stretched out in the air as high as they can reach. You should then be at the maximum for your inhalation.

This is the moment to feel! All the muscles in your upper body are stretched out to full capacity. All the muscles including those in your head are straining and desperately needing air.

Now gradually relax, taking a slow exhale and allow your arms to come down slowly by your side, so that you produced a large arc with the arms until they are returned to the starting position on your lap.

By this time you should have completed your exhalation and be ready to do normal breathing again. I call this movement the Sunrise Salutation, for waking up entire body that starts your day of productive activity when working at the computer each morning.

The third movement is to lift one pelvic bone and then the other, for making sure that you are comfortable and secure in your sitting position on your pelvic bones. You will now feel so much more energized and ready to start your day of prolonged sitting. The combined action of moving your pelvic bones and occasional deep breathing will help to make you much more comfortable in prolonged sitting.

Prolonged Sitting is about consistently moving your spine while you are in the sitting position. The gliding motion of the vertebrae enables a massaging provision along the spine and enables it to continue to move in comfort for normal and pain-free action throughout the day of ergonomic sitting.
