Tennis Ball = Personal Masseuse
DIY dilemma: Your attempt to channel Serena Williams on the court has left your back in knots, but if you have to choose between your mortgage and a massage, well, you know which one’s going to win, however reluctantly.
Mission accomplished: Dig those tennis balls out of your bag. Lie on your back and place one ball between your shoulder blade and spine, says massage guru Ben Brown of New York City spa Bliss. Gradually let your weight rest into the surface of the ball, relaxing around it. Now gently roll your shoulder and back over the ball. Instant relief.
