Massage therapy is an extremely calming and beneficial treatment for the entire body, mind, and spirit. According to experts, the emotional and physical benefits of a massage are simply countless.
One of the most useful ones is the foot massage. This therapy applies pressure on certain foot parts, moving or stationary. This massage can be conducted with motion, vibration, or tension.
Both, manual massages, and the ones done with massaging devices are effective the same. Manual massages are done with the fingers, hand, or elbow, knee, or forearm.
Certain points on the feet are directly related to certain body parts, so their stimulation treats and heals issues throughout the entire body.
These are the health benefits of foot massage:
- Stimulates blood flow and the secretion of sweat
- Relaxes the muscles
- Supports the proper function of organs
- Improves sleep
- Treats anxiety
- promotes skin health
- alleviates the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome
- excellent for sex life
It is recommended that you massage your feet at night, before going to sleep. The therapy shouldn’t last more than 15 minutes, and it is suggested that you do it for 10-15 minutes.
The massage of the big toe will support the health of the brain and lungs, and the other toes are linked to pain, so the massage will help you alleviate and cure various painful issues.
