Beginning from her ankles, Cree followed the guide all the way up to her neck and shoulders. Then, Cree instructed her to roll over, and reversed the process, focusing on her shoulders, quads, and lastly her feet.
“Do I have to move?”
“No, but it’d make sleeping easier,” Cree told her with a smile.
