Stretchsit Cushion Review!



Esther Gokhale has developed a whole method to help people feel better. Her Stretchsit Cushion is a simple looking device that I think is Fantastic!

The method of stretchsitting~

1. Before you begin, attach a cushion to your chair so that it hits you at mid-back, below the shoulder blades.

2. Scoot your bottom all the way back in the chair.

3. Lean forward from the hips, and tilt your ribcage forward, like you are doing a mini-crunch.

4. Hold the armrests or side bars on your chair and, while still tilted forward, press against them to get a gentle stretch in your lower back.

5. Keeping the stretch, lean back from your hips and stick your mid-back onto your cushion (Gokhale sells a specially designed
stretchsit cushion, but you can make your own out of an old, bundled towel).

6. Come out of the mini-crunch and relax completely, letting the cushion keep you in mild traction.

7. Roll each shoulder back and rest your hands close in to your body.

8. Angle your chin down slightly, letting the back of your neck be long.



I put it on my desk chair as it has straps that are built right in! 
It helps me sit up straighter and my back is so comfortable when I am sitting at the desk~as I spend lots of time on the internet. 

And even if you don't have a sore back this will help your posture to avoid the aches and pains you get from sitting so long.

And I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia so  I am in pain all the time.With the Stretchsit Cushion used over time I feel so much better as I am sitting up straight now and the aches and pains are not as severe.


When used regularly, Stretchsit rejuvenates you by lengthening the long muscles of your back. This provides more space for your spinal discs and nerves. No more compression, no more pain, sit your way to a pain-free back! Cushions are comfortable, easy to install and use.

  3. There is a heat sensor which can be used to activate the camera and is
    far less prone to false alarms. Assists to boost the security and safety of the house inmates.
    Since your home is sacred ground for you and your
    family, you naturally would want it protected.
