Lower Back: Relax Your Back with Full Back Release

This exercise is even more relaxing than the previous one. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Keep your head aligned with your back and hips. Relax your shoulders. Distributed your weight evenly between your buttocks and your feet.
Curl your neck, upper back and low back slowly forward, allowing your hands to reach the floor so your palms are touching the floor. Hold for five seconds. Straighten up slowly, one vertebrae at a time, until you bring your head up last. Return to the starting position, and repeat ten times. Each time you do this exercise, you can add a second and five repetitions.
