Son: Why are we walking on these stones with no shoes on? It’s painful!
Dad: Walking barefoot on stones massages and stimulates the reflex points in our feet.
Dad: When you walk on the stones, there’s pressure on your feet, right?
Dad: That pressure is a form of massage. Massaging the different parts of your feet improves blood circulation to different parts of the body.
Son: Get real.
Dad: It’s true. Even helps with blood pressure and cholesterol problems.
Son: Says who? Ow!
Dad: Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners.
Son: We’re not Chinese.
Dad: The stones won’t discriminate.
Son: How do you know this is good for you? Did you ask Dr K?
Dad: Dr K’s always said we need to walk more to get fit. So, if walking on stones improves health, then we’re getting double fit.
Son: Haha! Ow!
Dad: Anyway, I checked online and read up about foot reflexology.
Son: Right. So, how about running? Like regular surface running? That good?
Dad: Not so good. Bad for the knees.
Son: Then this is really bad.
Son: Because the dog’s made off with your shoes.
