Get your legs up the wall! Yes, you, every day! Do I do it daily, no, but I should, and I will make a better effort to do so now that I have put this out into cyberspace.
Here are the benefits of having your legs up the wall (a version of Vipareeta Karani asana [inverted pose] for all of you yoginis and yogis):
•elicits the relaxation response which can lower anxiety and stress as well as help insomnia and depression
•increases circulation and facilitates venous (oxygen-poor blood in the veins)drainage
•help to soothe swollen or cramped feet and mild backaches
•stenches the hamstrings, lower back, neck, and front torso
•can help improve eye and ear problems
•may improve digestion
•may relieve swollen ankles and varicose veins
•help to alleviate menstrual cramps
•relaxes the pelvic floor
•may alleviate headaches

Do not lock your knees or try to put your hips in a full 90-degree angle; this can impede the circulation in the hips. You can keep your glutes a few inches away from the wall or elevate your hips with a cushion or pillow if need be. BE COMFORTABLE!
Contraindications for the full pose as I demonstrated include glaucoma, hypertension, and hernias. Modify this pose as if you were pregnant (wedge/pillow under the head and neck; support your upper body) or contact your physician if you have questions about your health in this pose. Any elevation of your feet above your heart and relaxation time for YOU is beneficial!
Feel free to rub your belly, ears, or practice the breathing technique I showed you a few weeks about while you are here!
If you have trouble getting onto or off of the floor, use a chair, another human, something stable to help you do so. If you are not comfortable being on the floor, use a bed, couch, or anything that you can get in and out of easily, has a steady wall to put your legs up, and supports your head, neck, and back well. If you have any surgeries, injuries, or conditions that may prohibit this move; ask a physician or do not do it!
If you do not like your legs being straight, bend them or use a chair, anything to elevate them about the heart. I can share photos of the wedges I use in the treatment room for pregnant women and those that cannot lie flat or need support, just let me know. You can also use several pillows to make this work.
Enjoy this! Share it, love it, and have a fantastic weekend! #amtaindiana #massage #massagetherpist
