Before teaching Pilates, I never realized how much tension we hold in our feet. Almost all of us can complain of neck and shoulder pain after a hard day’s work, but it is amazing how much we forget our feet do. We shove them into uncomfortable shoes, sit for long periods, drive, and yet most of us don’t take care of our feet on a day-to-day basis.
Yamuna Foot Savers and Rubz Massage Ball, are my favorite tools to help relieve foot tension and stretch out the fascia and connective tissue of the feet. They are so small I take them with me when I travel and are a must before a run. I have had many clients come to me with plantar fasciitis and within weeks they have decreased or no pain at all. I believe one of the reasons for this is that I have my clients utilize these tools in every session. A simple 2 minutes a day while you’re brushing your teeth can greatly improve foot and calf tension and pain–your feet will thank you!
