Focused Feet Barefoot Therapy

Focused Feet Barefoot Therapy

One of the easiest ways to improve our well-being is simply to remove our shoes! Barefoot therapy can also be known as earthing and it has been scientifically proven to improve our mental health. When a child is feeling stressed, overwhelmed or anxious take them outside and try this, you will find the effect is almost instant. It is hard to feel these feelings when you focus on something bigger than yourself, the world around you.

Head to the full SEND range.

How does the lesson start?

We are going to be practising something today called ‘Focused feet?’. Stand on the grass and remove your shoes. Stand barefoot with your feet hip-width apart. Close your eyes and think about your feet. Can you feel your toes touching the grass? Your heels? Can you move so you feel more weight on one foot, can you now move the weight back to the other. Can you move onto your toes? Can you press back onto your heels?

We are the outdoor guys but if its SEND resources you are looking for and have the budget, here are some of our favourite places to visit
