Our feet – incredibly important, ingenious, complex and beautiful movement makers.
They contain 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than a hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments each.
Naturally, taking care of them well benefits us in many ways, including increased strength and flexibility throughout the body.
Check out this great article by Renaissance College for some excellent foot massage/reflexology tips, and a list of benefits.
If you’d like to test the magic: gently try doing a forward fold (uttanasana) right before and after giving yourself a foot rolling session/self massage – you’ll be amazed!
If you’ve had a rough day, are feeling a bit stiff or sore, need a quick pick-me-up at the start or end of the day, want to warm up fast, or would simply like to sleep better.. try it out!
And let me know how you feel afterwards 🙂
