Q&A Monday: I’m Pressing My Feet, But I Don’t Feel Anything

Q: I put my thumb on my left sole but didn’t feel anything. Do I need to press the tip of the big toe or poke it with my finger nails to feel the sensitive part of the toe? Please advise.

A: Thank you for trying out the exercise from my free online lessons. In the video, I recommend pressing along the toe because most people find sensitive points in this area. Ditto for the soles of the feet, especially the Kidney point, which I cover in Lesson 3.

It sounds like you may need to increase the amount of pressure you’re using when pressing on your sole and your toe. Also, try going more slowly and pressing more deeply.

Alternately, if you are living a very healthy and happy lifestyle, it might just be that you don’t have any sensitive points. Sensitive points on your feet are indicative of energy blocks or disharmonies. If you’re body is in complete harmony with your mind, spirit and the earth, then your feet won’t feel a thing.

Because of the volume of emails I receive and because I’m a full-time mom, I unfortunately can’t answer everyone’s questions personally. That’s why I created Q&A Mondays. You can submit your question on the Got a Question page.

    Hey Holly. Crazy question but do you think its possible to increase your height using Chinese reflexology? Just very curious to know. Love your work 🙂

      Thanks! No, you can’t grow taller with reflexology :). However, children who are developing slowly may benefit from reflexology, including the Kidney point. The Kidneys are related to growth and development, but this point won’t be useful for adults to grow taller, but it is still a powerful point for health and longevity.
