Sensations of the hands, feet, and head can offer reliable entry points to mindfulness of the body. Many people have expressed to me that they can feel these regions quite easily, even if other regions of the body persist as "blind spots" over time--these blind spots being interesting places of practice in themselves but challenging to approach without helpful tools. For example, "shake up" Part by Part body scans by occasionally sweeping awareness quickly through the body (Periphery to Center is just one direction), and notice how or if this sweeping energizes the mind and offers new perspective/places to investigate the Part by Part process.
