Stretch, Relax, Breathe: Metatarsals Proprioception Say What?

I am far, far from Brooklyn right now, at the Michigan Womyns Music Festival. Though I wrote this before I left, I can say with full certainty I AM HAVING A BLAST!

This segment covers how to realign the feet metatarsals and nerve proprioception exercises. Metatarsals and Proprioception say what? Metatarsals is the fancy word for the bones in your feet. And Proprioception is our ability to "perceive" how we are moving, that we are moving, which parts of our body we are moving, and how much effort is being exert to do so.

The nerve proprioception exercises I'm giving you are wonderful to do because they expand the brain, fire the synapses — tell them to work differently and get bigger! Super good for helping concentration and balancing the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Now who doesn't want to be smarter and more balanced?

Shaking your feet in the air really helps to realign the metatarsals of the feet, which helps with plantar fasciitis and many other feet problems. When you are done, stand on flat ground and feel the new space created in your feet. When a metatarsal are out of place, it throws the whole body out into an uneven way — this effects the knees, hips, spine, shoulders and neck.

So get down, kick your legs up, and give them a shake and lets get our brains in balance!

metatarsals are intermediate to your tarsals (proximal) and your phalanges (distal)...

The thing for the metatarsals is totally awesome! It is now officially added to my warm up/stretch routine for Taekwondo, getting my feet/ankles loose enough has been a bit of a problem for me. I think this will help me with my kick targeting.

Thanks for sharing!
