Here are the Three Options for a Foot Massage with a Ball:

Exercise #1: Ball under your Foot

Three Options for a Foot Massage with a Ball: Exercise #1: Ball under your Foot

Place the ball on the floor and put the heel of your foot on it. Roll the ball from the heel of your foot all the way down to the front, putting as much or as little pressure through the ball as you’d like. You can split the foot into different sections:

  • Inside of the foot – heel to toe
  • Middle of the foot- heel to toe
  • Outside of the foot – heel to toe

Additionally, you can roll the ball around in a circle.

Aim: 1 – 2 minutes. Repeat on the other side.

Place the ball on the floor, your toes on the ball, and your heel on the ground. Keep the pressure on the toes as your step forwards and backward with your other leg. This may also get you a stretch in the calf (bonus!).

Options:

  • Time: 1-2 minutes
  • Counting: 2-3 x 10 repetitions

Repeat on the other side.

Exercise #3: Stepping with Heel on the Ball

Note: As mentioned, this might be a little bit easier if you’ve got a small ball.
