Total Body Relaxation
Specifically designed to work on the muscle groups of the back, the Heatable acuBack is also ideal for easing shin splints, quads, hamstrings and calves, as well as releasing tension in the ribs, shoulder blades and scalp.
Uses Bodyweight to Release Tension
Place the Heatable acuBack underneath the area of tension, then relax as your bodyweight does the work for you. Muscles will begin to significantly relax and release in just three minutes.
Use the Heatable acuBack when seated to induce proper posture and spinal alignment, while the nibs and heat work on releasing tight muscles.

What would I use the acuBack for?
For proper sitting posture + muscle and joint release – it’s incredibly versatile. Place it behind your back on a chair or while driving to improve posture. If you use a foam roller the acuBack outperforms it in every way and is far easier to use. Instead of rolling – find the area in need of work and let your body melt over the tight spot for a full 3 minutes. No movement is needed.
How do I heat my acuBall?
1. Microwave on microwave safe plate for 50-60 seconds. acuBall WILL NOT feel hot when first removed – allow a minute or so for the heat to reach the surface. Heat will last for 1 hour. Cool to room temperature before reheating. NEVER exceed 60 seconds in microwave as ball will burst, becoming flat and useless!
2. Immerse in boiling water for 12 minutes. Towel dry.
Can I use the acuBack to loosen shins?
Absolutely – while kneeling place your shin in the groove running around the acuBack. Find the tight spots and let your body weight do the work for a full 3 minutes.
Can I use the acuBack to loosen tight calves?
Yes – it’s fantastic. While kneeling place the acuBack on the top of your calf and kneel down on it again for a full 3 minutes.
Can I use the acuBack behind my shoulder blade to loosen it?
Yes it works extremely well. Place it behind your shoulder while lying down and let the weight of your body do the work.
What are the little nibs on the top of the acuBack for?
These smaller nibs are for loosening forehead muscles. Place them on your forehead with your hand over the opposite label side of the acuBack letting the weight of your hand contribute to the downward pressure of the nibs. Close your eyes and breathe enjoying the feeling of your forehead muscles releasing.
Are there any reasons not to acuBack?
Yes. Bruises, fractures, cuts, infections, discolourations, advanced osteoporosis and brittle bones should never be acuBack. Individuals who bruise easily as a result of medication should not acuBack. If you have pain, get professional health care advice to fully understand why you feel the way you do before acuBacking.
