Why do we like it?
We have a whole section dedicated to Foot Health in The Akira State Workbook and in our Future Proofing and Counter Action programs. Feet are remarkable things. In fact they are one of the most jam packed and complex anatomical structures in the body … it is vital that we take care of them.
Your feet are one of the most complex anatomical structures in your body. You cannot have a healthy body if you don’t have healthy feet.
Did you know that your feet hold more than one-quarter of your body’s 206 bones; 26 in each foot plus two sesamoids (bones embedded within a tendon). Each foot has 33 joints and is supported and stabilized by a complex array of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
Did you also know that the average adult, through movement, exposes their feet to over one million pounds of force daily?
Your feet are your first level of ground contact and are responsible for taking you from place to place. In addition to making you mobile, your feet are the root of balance, your primary foundational sensory organs, and act as your body’s shock absorbers. They endure enormous amounts of stress and pressure each time they are called upon to move your body. It is critical that you pay close attention to, and take care of, their health and well-being.
A problematic foot can cause misalignments, negative stresses, and limited mobility further up the body, which can often result in knee, hip, and spinal strain and breakdown.
The well-being of your feet is a major contributing factor to the well-being of the rest of your body … Happy Feet = Happy Body.
What do we suggest you try?
We like to suggest keeping one cork ball under your desk or and one under your dining table or beside your couch and simply roll it around on the bottom of each of your feet when there. It feels great and the long term effects will astound you.
Where can you find them?
