Begin with short sessions and prolong the sessions as skill is acquired. Not more than 45 minutes per session is recommended. As relaxation deepens and deepens, the larynx, the forehead, then the crown of the head may become relaxed and energized. Remain conscious and do not fall asleep on the MA Roller.
Relax and feel into the new posture of your being after use. Allow the peace to settle.

Why is the MA Roller so shaped?
The MA Roller was conceived in a flash of intuition. As the mystery begins to unfold the reason for the broad and the narrow parabolic curves in her shape become clear. These curves reach out to infinity. Energy from the outer spaces of the cosmos is carried along these lines to the spinal cord and brain and to the internal organs through the YU points. The shape of the MA roller is the form of a winged bird of flight. It represents that energy in man capable of propelling his evolution towards an even higher form.
Why is the MA Roller made of wood?
Every substance contains a vibration. Wood is the natural choice since symbolically speaking the entire nervous system is also the Tree of Life. The brain and spinal cord are like the stem, branches, and leaves of the tree, open to the light of the sun. The autonomic nerves are like roots and fibres enclosed in the darkness of the earth. The spine, like the tree, stands erect. It is harmoniously poised between the heavens above and the earth below.
Why is the MA Roller so called?
The MA Roller is the result of meditations on the five elements as given in the ancient Chinese classic, "Huang Ti Nel Jing" - translated as "The inner doctrines of the Light Bearer". Earth as centre was seen as the mystic body of change transformations. The sound "MA" was given. MA stands for the whole of the created world, and stands also for mind, consciousness. The gesture, as given in a broader parabolic curve of the MA Roller, is that it will rise. "Great Earth Massage Tools" the name of the company that originally made the MA Roller, follows upon this.
To care for your MA Roller and enhance its beauty, please apply massage oil, Danish oil, or vegetable oil.
