Silly Sunday shoulder shuffle

By dudler  
The observant who were at the NEC a couple of weeks back will recognise this as the stand where you could get a shoulder, back or leg massage, and then have the chance to buy the massage device.

It looks silly: it makes you giggle when you try the belt (for want of a better word). And it really feels rather good.

Here are my friend Stewart and a random but pretty fellow passer-by (I'd initially taken a picture of her friend trying the belt, variant coming shortly) with two attentive demonstrators.

Because it looks silly, and you feel silly trying it in a public place, a Silly Sunday post.

But I bought one, suffering from the stnadard tog's ailment (sometimes known as 'Tenba Tenderness' or 'Billingham Back'). Nice, after a long day - or even a stressful shoot, which makes the neck stiff.

Yes, I saw this at the show, wasn't tempted to have a go.
Sounds like I should have. Smile
Her expression is wonderful, you can almost hear her thinking
"oh no, that bloke's just taken a picture of me with this thing round my neck, HELP"

Billingham bag back for me, went to see a specialist years ago and he knew what I did for a living.

I always walked with a list to the side, one shoulder higher than the other.

Tha\t's it, Dougie. And, very likely, one hip slightly ahead of the other.

A good reason for carrying two bags...

Leo - that's precisely what my chiropractor does (after he's straightened my hips out). Brutal, but my neck feels so much freer afterwards!

Should it not be in a maternity delivery room?

I'd rather have one of those rather than having someone to do it.
