A good reflexology foot massage is an incredible healing force that can help alleviate many symptoms such as headache, insomnia, chronic fatigue and dizziness. It is also one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have, if the proper reflexology foot massage techniques are used. A proper foot massage is one of the strongest stress relieving treatments, and is a great way to end a full body massage.
In a recently published article entitled, “7 Unbelievable Benefits of Foot Massage And How to Do It,” author and expert, Jenny Hills, writes:
“Many people go to great lengths in their quest for good health, while ignoring a simple and fast daily practice that can work wonders for the body and mind. One surprising way to promote natural health and wellness across the life span is to take a few moments each day to get a foot massage,” adding that reflexology is a safe and completely natural way for you to enhance the quality of your life.
“It uses massage therapy techniques to stimulate nerves, mostly in the palm of your hand and bottom of your foot. Each of these nerves branches off to different organs and glands in your body,” she writes.
Think about how much stress your feet go through each day. No body part is more abused than your feet. Standing, running, jumping – our feet do it all. Reflexologists believe that overall health begins in your feet and travels up.
“In the realm of reflexology, the key to virtually every body part lies in the sole of the foot (and additionally, the palm of the hand). Foot massage can help keep the psychological aspects of your health in balance,” Hills writes.
