Subtle and important things are going on in your feet.
If you were to google “Fascial Trains” you’ll see there’s a huge highway of fascia (a special kind of connective tissue) that runs from your feet, crossing through your core, and ending all the way up at your skull. Given it’s connection through your entire body, it’s pretty easy to understand that happy fascia can lead to a happier body.
A particular train of fascia starts at it’s thickest point, in the bottom of your feet. With the stress we constantly put on our feet, through climbing, hiking, and even just standing- they deserve some extra love and attention.
*if any posture ever feels painful, back off or stop completely.
