walking on rocks for foot health

no idea if this is a "thing" ... but, whenever the bottom of my feet get jacked up (plantar fasciae sore etc), I have this nagging thought to "walk on rocks". It actually seems to help. It can get quite painful if I hit the "right combo of rocks", digging in to various spots within the sole of my foot. Some of the positions feel really good, some feel painful & then good, etc.. It's almost like some kind of deep tissue work. The different rock positions also stretch my toes/forefoot in different ways too.

I have pebbles in the back yard, to fill in certain spots. So I can just walk around (slowly) for 10 minutes or so, pausing in certain spots.

dno. feels good.

hehe.

Did a lot of this kind of walking this sunmer on pebbly beaches. Sometimes its a really good kind of pain... i know what you mean. When theres a rock thats a perfecr size and in the perfect spot under your foot and you take a step and sink in slightly while it massages your plantar area... aw man its great.

hah nice! and ya exactly .. it's like "lock picking" or something... you're just walking on all kinds of weird configurations, then one fits and unlocks some beautiful relief.
