Using a small soft ball to hydrate and mobilise the connective tissue of the feet. Feel immediate release of tension and re-connection to the feet. As there are nerves in the feet that have a connection to the vulnerable lower vertebrae of the back, you may also find this a back and hip release. Including a very specific stretch of the smaller muscles of the calf this sequence is designed to improve ankle mobility and overall function.
Our feet are so important but often neglected - from the ground up our alignment and proprioception depend on them. Your feet also share connections with our most vulnerable lower lumbar vertebrae so don't be surprised if this release helps with back pain too. A super simple release you can do anywhere anytime just with your own hands. Take the time to stand on a firm surface before your start - close your eyes and observe where your weight falls, how your knees and hips feel. Do one foot, stand and feel the difference between the two - let your nervous system feel the difference before you repeat on the other foot.
