So, we're basically going to be doing a lot of thumb walking, so we'll start with the big toe.

With the big toe, you're going to want to thumb walk this whole area. Just to be thorough, we'll go all the way around. You can think of the big toe like the head, and the base as like the neck.

You'll come in here, and we're just going to thumb walk up. And, again, you're just bending at the joint here, and taking little bites, and I'm going up. You could also go across, and come across this way. You could also bend the toe a little bit. You're really supporting with these fingers here, but you could do a little bit of a lift, and folding over the thumb. And that will allow you get a little deeper in there. You could do it, with finger walking, you could do the base of the neck on this side. Go all the way around.

In addition to this big toe, you're going to want to do all the toes. With the second digit, you'll always want to support from the base. You're going to want to, with your finger, and your thumb, you're going to walk down at the same time, on either side. So, right like that. And I'm really supporting in the back.

You could do it again, supporting the back with your whole hand, and your fingers, you'll thumb walk down, the whole second toe. You're really getting in there in the base. You're going to do that again with the third digit, coming down, really supporting, and coming down.

Of course, you can, with the finger walking, you'll also do the front or the dorsum, the dorsal aspect. You'll do all the toes for the neck reflexes. You're going to want to focus, also, on the shoulder reflex, which is this whole area here. This whole area here. You're going to do it bilaterally, so you are going to do both feet. I'll just do this one here.

We're going to thumb walk down. A lot of people hole tension in their shoulders, so this can be a really nice thing for that as well. Many of us kind of walk around like this, so just give attention right here, if that's the case.

I'm walking across now, just a little bit from the lateral aspect in word, and you can certainly give attention to the side, by pinching a little bit. Then, you'll come in around at that diaphragm line reflex. You have that solar plexus right in the middle, so the solar plexus reflex, you'll hold with both thumbs, and you're just going to lean a little forward, and you lean forward.
