Health Benefits Of Foot Massage & Reflexology

Oct  1,2017

Our foot which bears the weight of the whole body, allows locomotion and does a lot of work. Still they are the least pampered part of the body. To pamper your feet and keep them strong and flexible, a daily foot massage for a few minutes is good option.

A regular foot massage along with reflexology helps in promoting physiological as well as physical health.

So, in reflexology pressure is applied to these reflexes on the feet, which promotes good health. Here are some health benefits of foot massage and reflexology:

Improves blood circulation:

Due to a sedentary lifestyle, we don’t use the feet muscles properly and wear tight footwear, all this hampers the circulation of feet. A 10 minutes of foot massage daily, helps in transporting oxygen to the body’s cells, which is essential for overall health.

Fights depression:

Foot massage and reflexology helps in fighting depression. Certain points on the feet are helpful in alleviating depression symptoms. Massaging these points or applying pressure to them for a few minutes 2 or 3 times a day can help relieve symptoms of depression.

Helps in relaxation:

After a tiring and stressful day, a foot massage is a soothing and relaxing way to relax. Massage and reflexology of 5 to 10 minutes before going to bed can improve feelings of general well-being.

Promotes better sleep:

The best time to do foot massage is before going to bed. A soothing and relaxing foot massage improves the blood circulation. This helps in getting a peaceful sleep.

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.






How Often should get a massage.

Nov. 1 ,2017

How often should  you get a massage depends on several factors, including your physical and emotional needs; your stress levels; and your budget. You will definitely experience the most health benefits from massage when you get massage regularly. Massage calms the nervous system, improves blood circulation and lymphatic circulation, relieves muscle pain, and helps with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms.

If you get a massage once a year, it will be relaxing, but it can't undo a lifetime of muscle tension. Typically, once every week or two is ideal for keeping your muscle tissue pliable and in good shape. If you are in chronic pain or have a special issue to address, you might need to come weekly (or even twice a week) until you feel better.

Once you're feeling good, once a month is the recommended minimum for maintaining the health of your tissue. If you start stretching the massages out too far apart, then your muscles can revert to their old patterns, especially if you come under stress. If you wait too long, you'll have to start all over again to restore their suppleness and pliancy. Listen to your body, but don't wait too long in an effort to save money.

How Much Massage Can You Afford?

Massage could be part of your routine for a relatively low amount, if you look in the right places.

How Much Massage Do You Need?

If you already feel good and regular massage keeps you that way, you probably know what works for you.In times of extra stress, you might want to go a little more frequently. If you suddenly experience a spasm due to stress, try to get in to see the massage therapist as soon as possible, preferably someone who knows your body.

If you are in chronic pain and want to see if massage will help, find a good massage therapist whom you feel comfortable with and whose style you like. Let them know you want to address chronic pain, ask if that is their specialty, and work out a treatment plan.
