To get the head of the Pressure Pointer
perpendicular to the trigger points (right shoulder), use your left foot to
apply pressure while relaxing your right shoulder muscles. Roll your head

shoulder back and forth. Move up and down the muscle fiber a half inch or so
to find other points and repeat the hold.

half hour or so before trigger point therapy. The therapy will increase
blood flow to the area and bring the pain reliever right where you need it.
Bring left arm across front of body as shown.
