Happy New Year, Everyone!!
I am on vacation right now, ringing in the New Year at a tango festival in San Diego. Talk about sore and tired feet!! I am taking 12 tango classes over four days and dancing every night. When I booked a hotel that was “within walking distance”, I didn’t realize that meant just under a mile from the venue. During a break, I mentioned to a fellow dancer how bummed I was that massaging one’s own feet doesn’t feel the same as having someone else do it…I wasn’t hinting, I swear! Thankfully, I picked an informed person to complain to. He showed me how to sit with my leg curled back in the chair or couch and to use my body pressure to press my thumbs into my feet. It ALMOST feels like a professional massage. I also came across the following blog post from the LA Tango Academy website that suggests foot stretches to counteract high heels: Happy Feet
Well, I’m off for more dancing. I hope that 2016 brings you everything your heart desires…and a few wonderful surprises, too. Thanks for reading!
