Walking on cobblestone road fitness
Nowadays, in many community gymnasiums, there are some fitness exercises that are popular with people – the cobblestone fitness road.
The fitness principle of the cobblestone fitness road is the application of foot reflexology, based on the theory of yin and yang and meridian of traditional Chinese medicine.
According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, half of the twelve meridians that connect the human body with the internal organs are at the foot. Bio-holographic medicine also believes that some parts of the human body are covered with reflective areas of various organs.
The sole of the foot is such a part. The human body’s heart, liver, lungs, kidney and other dozens of organs have specific reflection zones on the soles of the feet. Through the meridian coupling, the functions of the organs are coordinated and the blood flow is promoted.
Walking on the fitness road is equivalent to massaging these reflex zones, and the body’s own weight is the pressure exerted by the massage. The long-term persistence can awaken the human body’s potential and enhance physical fitness.
This ancient and novel method of fitness exercise on the cobblestone road is being accepted by more and more people.
This method of fitness is widely prevalent in more than 30 countries around the world.
In Japan, the famous Shiseido company has arranged a cobblestone road in the factory. The workers are walking barefoot on the work or work for a few minutes. After closing, the effect is very obvious.
For example, the production efficiency has been greatly improved, there is almost no sick leave, and the expansion of medical expenses has been greatly reduced. As a result, many Japanese companies have followed suit.
For the first time walking on the cobblestone fitness road, most people have a strong pain response at the soles of the feet.
At this time, you can put on a pair of cotton socks, or start with some segments that are not too sharp, to reduce the pressure and increase some cushioning.
Don’t be busy walking, you can stand on the cobblestone road for a while and get used to it.
Then try to take a step, slow down when landing, and the soles of the feet evenly touch the ground.
After a certain adaptation process, you can change to thin socks or barefoot, and exercise regularly.
Take a walk for 15-20 minutes and take 1-2 times a day.
The speed of walking varies from person to person.
Older people can be around 40 steps per minute, and younger people can be slightly faster.
You should also pay attention to warm water (300-500 ml) within half an hour after exercise.
The meridian theory tells us that different foot reflex zones correspond to different organs of the human body, so it is better to select the reflex zones and add some stimulation.
After exercise, there will usually be fever in the soles of the feet, which should be normal.
