The Toes: Pressing the toes in a “walking” motion with your thumbs is said to ease tension headaches, neck stiffness, and sinus pressure.
The Ball: Steady pressure here from your thumbs is thought to calm the mind and reduce stress.
The Middle: Applying pressure to the inside edge of your foot is said to relax muscles along the spine.
The Arch: To tune up your digestive system and eliminate toxins. Try thumb and finger walking around the midsection of the arch.
The Heel: Deep pressure here is believed to release lower-back tension; the area is dense, so it can take firm pressure.
