- Excellent productReview by Miss Claire Holland
However, I mainly bought this package for the therapeutic benefits of Indian Clubs. I work at a desk all day and suffer from Rhuematiod Arthritis, especially in my neck and shoulders. I've tried standard 'warm-up' style exercises (which leave my neck feeling tigher) and specifically adapted yoga postures which do help but not completely.
Using Indian Clubs is the only method which has ever given me geniune relief. I think it must be something to do with the very gentle but effective pendulum effect produced by the light clubs. Once you have initiated the swinging movement , the momentum takes over and lets your muscles and arms joints move almost passively. After just a few seconds of swinging the clubs forwards and backwads, I can feel the tight knots in my neck and shoulder muscles being gentled 'eased' out.
I wish I'd known about these things years ago!! I'm delighted to have finally found something which will help me release the tension in my neck and shoulders, as well as strengthen them, improve my mobility and my posture. THESE ARE AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR ANYONE WHO SPENDS HOURS AT A DESK OR DRIVING!
The clubs are excellent quality and arrived very quickly and very well packaged. The DVD is very clear and easy to learn from. I live in a bungalow with relatively low ceilings but by holding the clubs halfway up the shaft I can still use them indoors for full circle movements. Once the fine weather arrives I should have mastered some routines without having to watch the DVD and will be practising outside in the fresh air! (Posted on 07/05/2012)
