Rolling your foot across the top of a tennis ball is almost as good as a foot massage and it serves the same purpose of increasing the circulation and working out tight muscles in your feet. When you roll you're your foot over a tennis ball, you stretch the muscles on the bottoms of your feet, which can help prevent plantar fasciitis. And it feels good! For best results, stand up. You can do this exercise while seated, but you will be able to exert more direct pressure if you stand.
I like it, good for improving circulation too
Very good for stretching out the plantar fascia (the arch in your foot), and loosening up the muscles and tendons in your foot!
If you want a more intense stretch, you can use a golf ball. Happy Running!
Yes it feels so good
A very good exercise and very in expense
This worked great! Now I just need to keep my dog from stealing it out from under me ;)
