Posted:... now I danced late night, sweating, rode my motorbike, did a uHaul and carried heavy bags...

One day ahead the great party - which happened right in the yard of my new accommodation - I was getting severe lower back pain (again) and was paralysed for 24 hrs... (which somehow scared me for a few hours)

So I took my tennisball-poi, stuck them into a sock and knotted it, layed down with my spine and inflicted a nice massage, acupressure on my back... which - essentially - saved me and got me out of bed again (much of the backache is related to muscular tension)...

So.... I ubblove my poi even more, they are a great toy and tool... hug weavesmiley

Anybody else got ways to alternatively use theirs? wink

Posted:found a good use for a staff - balance it across my room between two shelf-y things and use it as a washing line for socks etc. Probably best i didnt put anything on the ends - never good if your clean laundry starts to smell of parafin again before its even dry!
