Foot function affects leg and hip function and can even influence shoulder, neck and rib cage stability. The foot is at the end of fascial chains (fibrous sheaths that surround our muscles and organs) descending from the head, through the pelvic floor. The bone structure of our body is held up vertically by our feet.
Additionally the foot affects the entire body through the reflexology points on its plantar surface. If you take time to improve your foot health you will revive your entire body.
About Yamuna Body Rolling
The basic principle of body rolling is creating space. Every part of your body needs its proper space to function properly. Lack of space first manifests as muscle tightness or contraction.
Yamuna body rolling elongates the muscle; it stimulates tendons and frees up joints. Working with the ball reveals how tightness in certain muscles restricts movements in the joints. As they release, the joint loosens up. Body rolling decongests and unsticks connective tissue and stimulates bone. It also encourages us to let go of habitual patterns. We start to let go and release. Just as we do in yoga, with the breath on the ball we soften, sink, and let go.
