Toe Stretching – Periscope Replay

Our bodies are designed to work as one whole unit. If there is a weak link in the system, the other links will take its job and the stress will intensify until the chain breaks.

Toes and fingers, although small parts of our bodies, are part of the whole system.

Our toes are stuck in shoes for hours and hours, the skin does not breathe and toes are not allowed to take their natural shape. Muscles becomes weak and shorten.

In this Periscope replay I will show you how to stretch your toes and feet and release tension.

Remember, muscles are connected to each other, you don’t just stretch your toes and feet, there is more going on than the eye can see.
