Place the balls of the feet on the MINIS™ so the toes relax into the Center Channel. Feel the upper calf lengthen as you stand with knees straight. After a few seconds, soften the knees to release the upper calf muscles. Repeat for a minute daily and avoid low back and heel pain (plantar fascitis).
Place the backs of heels at Center Channel and forefoot on the floor. Try to “dome” the arch. Imagine your heels sliding towards your toes. This move will strengthen the toe flexors and foot intrinsics.
With heels on MINIS™ and forefoot on floor, lift the toes first and then lift the rest of the forefoot. This wakes up the tendons that cross your ankles. Repeat quickly and the muscles of the ankle and shin will activate.
Turn MINIS™ so Center Channel faces the body. Insert the Wedge into Channel slightly behind the midpoint. Stand tall on Wedge so the ankle aligns with the front of the Wedge. You will experience a realignment as the proprioceptors turn on.
Place both Wedges in one MINI™ to support all the arches of the foot. Repeat the previous exercise with one foot to increase the intensity and challenge. Your body will vibrate. In this position, you can access the true Plumb Line that runs through the body!
Turn MINIS™ over so flat side is on top. Stand and practice balancing. Touch a wall or chair for support. Gradually raise arms to shoulder level and attempt to balance. Just standing on these MINIS™ you experience micro movements throughout your body as it naturally finds a balance and center.
The result: better posture and more graceful movement. But the best part is that the six exercises are easy to do and feel so good—Almost like getting a foot massage. When you step off the MINIS you feel lighter and more buoyant immediately.
“For the past year, I haven’t been able to do a correct pain-free relevé on my left foot. The wear and tear from ballet was made worse by doing the same steps over and over again on Broadway in An American in Paris. After working with the MINIS™ I am finding the proper balance and flexibility within my foot so that I am now able to do a proper relevé. I am so grateful for this small, lightweight invention, now in my dance bag and with me everywhere I go.”- Robert Fairchild, Principal Dancer, NewYorkCity Ballet
“Leonardo da Vinci described the human foot as a “masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” Of the 206 bones in our bodies, twenty-five percent are in our feet, which we rely on for movement, support and balance. The MINIS™ enable us to experience the tiny micro-movements that center and align us. This awareness stabilizes our joints so we develop stronger and healthier bodies.”
“I have recently been introduced to the MINIS™. I believe that this device offers a great and non-complicated way to restore and increase proprioception. I can’t wait to work with it more often to uncover the other benefits it will have for my patients.”
