The body is reliant on the feet for balance and stability, but not everyone’s feet are correctly aligned which can cause health problems. If any of the 28 bones in the feet are incorrectly aligned the whole body can be affected. For example the knee can rotate inwards; this then affects the hip, which in turn affects the back, groin and stomach muscles.
That’s where Foot Joint Mobilisation can help to encourage the bones of the feet back into alignment. FJM is a gentle technique that mobilises the joints of the feet. It work’s on all of the joints of the feet in a systematic order. Foot Joint Mobilisation is correcting at the foundation to stimulate and allow the healing of the body structurally.
Jamila, a certified Foot Joint Mobilisation practitioner, has found the techniques highly effective in combating back, knee and foot problems. “If any of the bones in the feet are incorrectly aligned, the whole body is affected,” she says. Foot Joint Mobilisation was developed by Californian podiatrist Dr Harvey Lampell, using his specialist knowledge of foot anatomy, after he became concerned about the misshapen feet of his patients.
For the best results, Dr. Harvey Lampell recommends two sessions per week for 8 weeks to allow muscles to be re-educated to support each client’s structure in a more natural state.
