Feet Pressure Points

Here's another great tip I'm sure most of you will be happy to hear. I have read that one of the most effective methods for shrinking inches sans diet and exercise is by rolling your feet over a bumpy surface. According to the healing art of reflexology...

"It has been proven that by applying pressure to reflex points near the base of the toes, it boosts metabolic rate for an instant calorie-burning burst."

The area near the base of the toes is the part of the foot that corresponds to the thyroid gland. Here's what you should do: In a large, shallow basin, put some rounded, smooth pebbles, make sure you cover the bottom. Fill with warm water then roll the soles of your feet over the pebbles for 5 to 10 minutes. For added bonus, put a drop each of lavender and cypress essential oils. Lavender has pain-relieving properties that soothe tired and achy feet, while cypress has a natural astringent quality that helps deflate bloated body parts.

I'm sure I've lost hundreds of kilos without knowing it or maybe I've prevented them to be glued on my body.
When I'm computering I'm always roling a stich to and for with my feet, using exactly that part of my feet.

Now I can't stop doing that, otherwise....
