The Moji Minute - How to Massage Your IT Bands

Author: Moji

Hi it's Samantha here with Moji. Welcome to the Moji Minute. In this video I'm going to show you how to use the Moji Curve PRO to relieve soreness, tightness and knee pain associated with your IT bands. Your IT band is a long band of connective tissue that runs from the side of the hip down to the outside of the knee. The IT band is connected to a muscle called tensor fascia late which is responsible for hip flexion, abduction and your band is responsible for stabilizing your knee. We're going to start our massage by placing the massager on your IT band and using long strokes, also known as elongation massage. As you are massaging make note of any sore spots.

After a minute or so of elongation massage, focus on your sore spots and use cross-friction and sustained pressure. When using sustained pressure, press and hold spots until you feel it release. If it does not release after 10 to 20 seconds move on. Continue and repeat elongation and targeting your sore spots. To take your relief to the next level, throw the Moji Curve PRO into the freezer and enjoy an ice massage. Check out our website at gomoji.com for more massage and recovery tips. Thanks for watching.
