Important Benefits of Foot Massage/Reflexology
Our bodies contain many large and small muscles, some of which we neglect to stretch and care for. Our feet are perhaps both the most abused and neglected of any other part of our bodies. We walk on them all day and everyday. We often forget to take good care of the muscles in our legs and feet.
Scheduling a regular foot massage and reflexology techniques helps to promote physiological as well as physical health.
Did you know?
Reflexology is an ancient healing practice based on the principle that there are reflex points on the feet that correspond to the body’s different organs and glands. Your feet have 42 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, 250,000 sweat glands, at least 50 ligaments and tendons, and almost 15,000 nerve endings!
When we talk about foot reflexology, we must consider that pressure is applied to your foots reflexes. This promotes overall good health for your entire body.
The health benefits of foot massage and reflexology:
Helps you to relax: After a long and tiring day, a foot massage will help you relieve stress. You will feel refreshed and ready to wind down for the rest of the day; or perhaps starting the day with a foot massage can revitalize you for a busy day ahead.
Promotes better sleep: Foot massage will improve the quality of your sleep. A soothing and relaxing foot massage improves the blood circulation throughout your body. This will get you the peaceful 8+ hours of quality sleep you both need and desire.
Prevents Injury: A regular foot massage helps stimulate the muscles around your feet, lessens stiffness and even reduces pain in the ankles or the heels, preventing injury.
Improves blood circulation: Due to the comfortable life-style most of us live, many people neither use nor take care of their foot muscles properly. By giving special attention to our feet via a foot massage and reflexology, we allow our bodies to breath and circulate blood, which promotes overall health.
Relieves body pains: This is the best part of reflexology. If done carefully, it treats pains and aches such as headaches, migraines, neck pain, lower and upper backaches.
Improves mood and relieves depression: Do you ever simply have bad days? Or maybe you struggle with depression. A regular foot massage can help get you balanced and centered, relieving you of your depression and improving your overall mood.
