6. Pectoralis minor self-massage
You can massage the pectoralis with the Trigger Fairy, a massage ball or with your fingers.
Massaging it with the Trigger Fairy or a ball saves your hands from unnecessary strain.
With the Fairy you can work the muscle while sitting and make use of its small head to really get on to the tiny knots in the muscle.
With a ball you can exert a lot of pressure, which sometimes is needed to release the muscle.
Still, you need a blank space at a wall and have to do some “massage gymnastics” in order to get the ball on the muscle.
Last but not least there are your hands – brilliant and precise, yet delicate massage tools.
As always, I recommend saving them whenever possible and using other tools for massage.
Most of you just don´t have strong enough hands to withstand the stress of massage over time.
Still, I will show you all three possibilities.
Note: For massage, inspect the 5 – 8 centimetres below your coracoid process.
6.1 Self-massage of the pectoralis minor with the Trigger Fairy
I recommend holding the Trigger Fairy with one or two hands and to really relax the shoulder at the side of your body that you are massasing.
Now you can choose between precise massage strokes and the pressure-motion technique.
6.3 Self-massage of the pectoralis minor with your hands
Last but not least there is the possibility to massage the muscle with your hands.
