Skip the Coffee and Grab a Tennis Ball
Begin by standing in a neutral position with your shoes off. Bend over to touch your toes and notice the side of the body which feels more tired or tight. Roll out that side’s foot with the tennis ball, by rolling the ball on the floor with your foot. Make sure that all areas of the foot are touched by the ball Then, apply some more pressure and rub again. Now, bend over and touch your toes again. Do you feel the difference?
There are many meridians in the feet and proprioceptors that are stimulated by trigger point therapy. And the feet have a strong relationship to the body’s fascial system. The body is a whole, not a part, so it works intelligently with every cell to create balance.
After you have massaged your feet, try chilled water with cucumber, ginger, lemon and a bit of honey instead of your choice of caffeinated beverage. You will feel revived naturally and holistically.
