Effective Pain Relief
Toe tapping is a simple exercise that is highly effective for relieving headaches, insomnia, tension, and fatigue. It also works for lower back pain and releasing tension from your hip joints.
Toe tapping restores a state of “Water Up, Fire Down” in your body by bringing fire energy down from your upper body into your lower body and core, so that your mind becomes calm and your body relaxed.
This exercise stimulates the acupressure points in your feet, which connect to your entire body, making your whole body refreshed and rejuvenated.
Toe tapping improves blood, oxygen, and energy circulation throughout your body, adds a healthy glow to your skin and more smoothness in your joints.
If you take just 10 minutes every night to do toe tapping before you go to sleep, you’ll sleep deeply, have better rest, and wake up energized and ready to go. Use my “Toe Tapping Video Tutorial” to get started.
Toe Tapping in 3 Easy Steps:
1) Lie down comfortably with your feet together, align your head with your spine. Close your eyes and relax your body.
2) Keeping your heels together, swing your feet outwards and inwards so that you are repeatedly tapping your big toes together and then the outsides of your feet toward the floor.
3) Move your feet as fast as you can without straining yourself, starting with at least 50 repetitions and gradually increasing the number of repetitions and opening the outsides of the feet further to the floor as you practice.
* When you finish, let your body breathe comfortably as you feel subtle vibrations and energy sensations running through your body.
If you have poor energy circulation, the exercise will be tougher than it looks at first. Once you get used to it, loosen your joints and open your energy channels, it will be very relaxing. Initially you may feel a lot of burning, especially along the inside of the legs, as you push through sensations of stale energy being stuck in your body.
If you feel too much pain, go a little slower, but keep going until you feel better and begin trying to move your feet rhythmically as fast as you comfortably can. Soon, muscles and joints will open and relax and you can continue without too much effort. It usually takes about 10 minutes to do 1000 repetitions (500 count: every second tap counts as 1, count in 10′s).
Intermediate and advanced practitioners build on the foundation of “Water Up – Fire Down” from physical health, to energy management (emotional Intelligence) into self-mastery. They incorporate 3 Principles it into daily life to cultivate their character and learn to manage their energy through Qi Yoga, Dynamic Meditations,The Tao Healing Arts & Martial Arts.

Take the Toe Tapping Challenge!!!: For deeper full body release try tapping for 1-2 hrs. (no kidding), be sure to share your findings in the comments section…
Betty: “I did 10,000 toe taps today. I double dare you all to do the same!!!!! The feeling upon completion was amazing.”
Lee: 10,000 toe taps! “It was hard for the first little bit. My mind kept saying; Can you last this long? There would be sudden shifts of heat to my face and tingling in my fingers. Eventually the energy shifted after 6’000 taps. At one point I felt I could go forever. When it was over I felt calmer and more relaxed and a lot more open. After the cool down stretching my lower back feels amazing. Glad I did it.”
Angela: “ I did 10,000 toe taps together with Arrow. It was a challenge to focus on the practice and initially my distracting thoughts made it hard to keep count. After about 6,000, frustration and negative energy had been released and gave way to focus and calmness. Having the pressure points in the feet stimulated created a very refreshing feeling of lightness from head to toe! I slept SO well last night!”
The shape of my feet prevent me from both keeping my heals together AND tapping big toes. If my heals are together then the toes can’t strike each other. Which is more important: heels together or can I spread them apart so the big toes can reach each other? Thanks!
In this situation I’d open your heels a bit more so your toes will tap. I’m suggesting this to get the vibration moving strongly through the meridians, and alleviate the challenges outlined in the blogpost.
If people are looking for exercises specifically to gently coax open tight hips they can open their legs even wider so their toes don’t strike. This modification still activates the meridians, but not nearly as dramatically as an hour of toe tapping.
Let me know how it goes Brad.
I am commited to my health and weel being. what should I do other than toe -tapping.
I suggest subscribing for news or registering for a masterclass…staying connected.
Hi Guys- amazing technique, and I had 6 hrs of good sleep after a long time! But last night it wasn’t so good- I tapped but was mis-counting and counting really quickly, so didn’t get the shifts I had on the first tap…Also, I can’t seem to get the outer parts of my foot to touch the floor ?!
I was probably forcing it too much- any tips? Thanks
I’m happy you are using this technique. It has many benefits. It stimulates the spleen and stomach meridians and pulls energy trapped up in the brain down, relieving excessive thinking and headaches. It is also great for opening the ankles and hips. Over time…say 30 or 45 minutes the vibration of the tapping spreads through the entire body, lowering the brain wave and stimulating all the cells through reflexology.
My recommendation is to count every second tap so you are not counting so fast. Relax your legs as you open and close, gradually opening wider as your legs relax. As your legs release tension and circulation restores you can start tapping faster, stronger and opening wider, comfortably. It could take weeks or months before the outsides of your feet touch the ground. Don’t force it.
Also per your request for online training, it is in the works. Have you subscribed for news on the site? Then you will be informed of online trainings etc.
