So who doesn’t enjoy a Great Foot Massage?!
A massage not only feels good, but it also has a range of health benefits too!
Although our feet keep us mobile and “in step” every day, they also suffer the daily abuse of tight shoes and neglect and can be the least pampered part of our body.
To pamper your feet and keep them strong and flexible, regular pedicures and foot massages are an essential part of our “whole body” care.
Promotes Better Sleep: A foot massage just before going to bed can help you sleep better.
A soothing and relaxing foot massage will help the body unwind, improve blood circulation and relax the nerves.
Improves Blood Circulation: You can improve your blood circulation with 10 minutes of daily foot massage.
This in turn will help transport oxygen to the body’s cells, which is essential for overall health. Needless to say, you also need to opt for proper and comfortable footwear.
Helps you relax: A foot massage gives you energy by releasing any blockages that hold back energy and relieving symptoms of stress and fatigue.
Fights Depression: According to a 2010 study published in the Journal of Clinical Nursing, receiving soothing hand or foot massages after the death of a loved one can help a lot to deal with the stressful grieving period.
Foot massage provides consolation, helping people to balance the need to grieve and adapt to changes in life.
Makes Feet Healthier: One easy way to keep your feet healthy and free from all kinds of foot problems is a regular foot massage.
It helps stimulate the muscles around your feet, lessens stiffness and even reduces pain in the ankles or the heels.
Alleviates Edema: Regular foot massage can help reduce the effects of edema, otherwise known as swelling or water retention.
Restless Leg Syndrome: Foot massage is also helpful in treating restless leg syndrome, a kind of neurological disorder.
Restless leg syndrome can cause difficulty sleeping due to the unpleasant sensations like throbbing, pulling and the urge to move your legs.
