A self massage sequence from a book I’ve bought “Reflexology, Hands-on treatment for vitality and well-being”. According to reflexology practitioners, reflex points on your feet and hands correspond to your whole body, so stimulating those points helps release tension and gives you a feeling of overall well-being. Sounds like the perfect excuse to ask your boyfriend for a foot massage! No helpful boyfriend available? Here’s a sequence you can perform on yourself.
DailyQuickie: I have a headache :( Time for a Tennis Ball Massage!
I LOVE massage. I mean, if I could get a massage for 3 hours a day, every single day. Happily would! But, since it would be tough to be productive on such a luxurious schedule, I use a tennis ball to give myself a massage… for 5 minutes a day. Place the ball under your barefoot foot. Put most of your weight on it. Slowly move the ball around from toes to heel. If you feel any tender spots, hold the ball there for a few moments as you try to break the knots up under the weight of your body. Since your feet are said to be mirrors of your entire body, doing a reflexology treatment with a tennis ball is almost like getting a daily full-body massage. Almost. Still, it’s delicious!

Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. It is based on what reflexologists claim to be a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Accupressure or reflexology is something that we as adults really enjoy and find helpful. I think knowing these key areas could be helpful too for the baby when she comes. It is worth trying out, in my opinion.
