Happy Feet and Franklin Textured Ball™ Set

Sku: G1

Mind-body guru Eric Franklin takes his teachings of body design and imagery and focuses on where posture begins–the feet.

Happy Feet: Dynamic Base, Effortless Posture emphasizes imagery to work directly with the nervous system to optimize the way you use your body. Written by mind-body expert, movement educator, and the founder and director of the Franklin Method®, Eric Franklin, this book is filled with imagery techniques and exercises that are sure to leave you with happy feet.

Readers will learn about the power of imagery and will then be introduced to more than 40 movement techniques that incorporate Franklin Balls and Bands to help activate the muscles, improve proprioception, and provide a relaxing and rejuvenating self-massage to the feet and other areas of the body.

The 3½″ diameter emerald-green textured balls feature a design that activates the relaxation reflexes of the body. They are the ideal size and density to use for the exercises in the accompanying book.

This set includes one copy of the book and two Franklin Method® balls.
