I have four herniated discs in my back. One in my thoracic spine and 3 in the lumbar region. About 5 years ago I had an acute incident that was incredibly painful and kept me out of work for two weeks. It was ironic that as a yogi I was dealing with this issue and it lead me on a quest to find things that would truly support my back health.
As I slowly recovered and experimented with different treatments and exercises, the one I was most drawn to and seemed to respond best to was chair poses. No, not Grandma's chair yoga but positions and practices that use the chair as a support, a massage tool and an antigravity device to help me slowly and methodically work all areas of my back and legs.
A few months ago I realized that the Headstander is a great thickly cushioned platform for doing this kind of work. One problem I now have is that the item is discontinued, so if I want more I need to have a couple of thousand made. They would need to sell for about $120.00 retail.
I actually have the the manufacturing situation lined up but it will cost me tens of thousands of dollars and I'll have a lot of chairs to sell. I'm inclined to do it because I'd really like to share this awesome therapeutic tool but I'd love some feedback. What do you think?
