Memorable Steps in Life

As we delve into sandal season and kick off the unofficial summer season with Memorial Day, it’s time to kick off your warm clothes and your dark thoughts! Incidentally, your feet have not only been longing for some time in the sun, they have also been your key to clarity of the mind and stabilization of emotions.

Step into summer and into a brand new attitude with a resource you walk on every day – the sole of your foot called Yongquan, or “Bubbling Spring.”

This acupuncture point — located on the sole of the foot, at the indentation near the front part, between the second and third metatarsal bones, one-third the distance from the webs of the toes to the heel — is the starting point of the Kidney meridian, according to Oriental health theory. You can stimulate it by walking, tapping it, or rolling a ball over it:
Walking: Let your heel tap the ground gently. Feel your weight transfer fully to the ball and toes of your foot. Focus on breathing into your lower abdomen. Keep your shoulders relaxed and allow your arms to swing freely.
Tapping: Use your fists to strike your Yongquan about 100 times on each foot.
Rolling: Gently roll a tennis ball under your foot while relaxing on the couch.

By doing these simple exercises, you can improve your high blood pressure, reduce stress, insomnia, and headaches, and increase sexual potency and kidney function.

And if all else fails, come in for a massage — we’ll take care of your foot… and the rest of you, too!
