How many times in your life do you feel your aching feet and wish for some relief? You’ll experience pain and discomfort after a long walk or run, a day at the amusement park with the kids, shopping at the Mall, after being on your feet all day at work, after wearing high heels or an ill-fitting pair of shoes. Whatever the reason, your feet are telling you that they’ve had enough, and it’s time for a little tender loving care.
A foot massage is where it’s at! We’ve got twenty-six bones and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot and ankle. These bones and muscles bear the brunt of our body weight to stand, walk, run, hop, skip – move our body through space. All day log our foot muscles work and release so we can use the ankles, arches, and toes as levers to propel us through life, but how often are you giving your feet time to relax, re-charge, and refresh?
Foot reflexology has been used for thousands of years to relieve tension, improve circulation, increase “Qi” or energy flow, and help promote natural function for improved whole body health.
Reflexologists say there are specific points on the soles of the feet that relate to all our other organs, systems, and parts of the body. By stimulating these foot reflexology points you can not only help your feet feel better but help the rest of your body too.
When any part of the body is feeling stiff, tired, or sore, stretching our muscles and massage can be two of the best things we can do to get some relief. It’s easy to think about getting a neck or back massage to alleviate stress in the upper body, why not take advantage of the benefits of a foot massage and treat your feet?
Whether you have high arches, flat, feet, or a normal arch, whether you use your feet and ankles with good alignment for healthy movement habits, or your feet pronate or supinate, whether your feet are one hundred percent healthy or you’re experiencing heel pain, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, pain under the balls of your feet, arch cramps, toe cramps, bunions, hammer toes, or other foot problems, taking care of your feet with a regular foot massage can help reduce stress and help your feet feel fit and fabulous.
A reflexology specialist can give you a good foot massage – anywhere between 20 and60 minutes of pure bliss. We use various massage techniques as well as tools like rollers with rounded points to get at key pressure points.
Wipe that “Oh my aching feet… “, comment out of your life with a little TLC for your feet with regular foot massages, and foot-fitness exercises as a part of your weekly workout routine.
