not only because it can improve the posture but also help in

improve the posture. The method he came up with was very
effective and can be done by many without investing too much
cash, time or effort. And this method has also been proven to
be effective in weight loss.
What is the Method Dr. Fukutsuji Created?
The method created by the Japanese doctor simply involved a
towel and five minutes of your time. You might be thinking, “Is
that really it?” The answer is yes, it is, and a few things to
do. You need a thick towel and roll it in a sausage. You can
use a tape or string to hold it in place. Have a hard and flat
surface that you can lie down on. Use the towel and place it
under your back, just at the height of your navel.
Make sure your toes are touching and your feet are
shoulder-width apart. Now let’s focus on the arms. Stretch them
above your head, palms down and pinky fingers touching. Now
simply stay on this position for five minutes. After five
minutes, you can get up or sit down, but do so as slowly as
possible. Do this for a couple of times in a week, and you’ll
surely be losing pounds in no time.
