  • Roll a special massage ball or a regular tennis ball with your feet.
  • Massage your feet with your thumbs up and back, pressing gently.
  • Spread your toes, place your fingers between them, and pull your hand up and down.
  • Take one toe in your hand and pull it slightly upward. Repeat for each toe.
