WHY DO YOU DESERVE A FOOT MASSAGE?
In a world where we all walk, run and stand, our feet support us the entire way. While being stifled in shoes and socks all day, they have restricted circulation and air contact. Although machines that massage feet are becoming popular, there is no replacement for what the genuine human touch can do.
A foot massage is ideal for relieving stress and tension and a great way to relax after a long day. Moreover, getting a massage from a skilled therapist will also improve your circulation and help to relieve lower leg pain.
On the other hand, in a foot reflexology procedure pressure is purposely applied to reflex points in the feet to send signals to other targeted parts of the body. For 3,000 years Chinese practitioners have used reflexology to re-balance Qi (the life force flowing through energy channels), in order to treat a number of conditions.
Each foot contains more than 7,200 nerve endings, 19 muscles, 26 bones, and 107 ligaments. Your feet are linked to every part in the human body, and that’s why ancient Asian cultures see the feet like roots of a tree.
The important step to a full understanding of reflexology techniques is an appreciation of the pressure points and zones and how they relate to the body.
The right sole has reflex areas which correspond to the body’s right hand side.
The left sole has reflex areas which correspond to the body’s left hand side.
The natural curve of the inside of each foot represents the spine. The big toe corresponds to neck, the area from shoulder and waist is found on the ball of the foot.
The outer edge of foot corresponds to the outer parts of body – limbs, joints, and ligaments.
