It is still considered an alternative type of medicine but the form of muscle and bone manipulation called osteopathy in English and seitai ("body organization" in Japanese is a long and honored tradition in the East with small private clinics offering such services as common as convenience stores. If you want to see how it can be helpful to you without having to visit an actual osteopathic professional, the Rakuna Osteopathic Hip Pad is an excellent introduction that does wonders for one of the most problematic areas of anyone's body: the hips and lower back.
We all know how our sedentary lifestyles are the cause of problems to our spine, but the Rakuna Osteopathic Hip Pad can really help. Its shape follows the natural curve of your pelvis bone and its protrusions are in the exact spots where an osteopathic professional would place their thumbs to work on the muscles of your buttocks and hips. Just put it on the floor, lie down on it, and move front and back, and left and right for about five minutes. Yes, that's all it takes!
