If your feet are aching after a long day, a foot massage can give you much-needed relief. But it doesn’t just feel good. Research shows that it has health benefits, too. Even a brief foot massage can ease stress and perk you up.
* A foot massage increases the circulation in your feet and helps your blood and lymph systems carry away toxins. The very process of a foot massage sends messages to the rest of your body to relax. Massaging the feet targets the rest of the body, too. Reflexology therapy helps correct imbalances in the body by stimulating specific areas of your feet. And proper and targeted stimulation of the feet can ease tension all over your body, especially your legs and lower back.
* A foot massage is a great way to pamper yourself and help unwind after a long day. As an added benefit, foot massages can also help to treat issues like headaches, and stress.
* With all that punishment, feet need a lot of care to keep them healthy. They get sore and tired. They get crampy and stiff. They can swell, sweat and ache. That’s where a foot massage comes in.
