Foot massage is good for both physical and mental health. It will not just be your feet that reap the benefits.
Tranquility and Relaxation
Massaging the feet can alleviate anxiety and bring about a deep state of relaxation. One important point that is situated on both feet is the solar plexus reflex. The solar plexus is sort of a little warehouse where all your stress is stored. When the solar plexus point is pressed on, stress is released, and the body is renewed.
Improved Circulation and Cleansing
The blood that circulates through the body is responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrition to the body’s cells. The blood also cleanses waste and toxins from the body. When one is stressed, blood flow becomes limited. Foot massage can be beneficial as it decreases stress and allows the circulation of blood to flow unimpeded. Regular session can greatly improve circulation in the lower extremities. Foot massage is considered complementary and alternative medicine used by millions to relieve pain, reduce stress and anxiety, rehabilitate injuries, and boost general health.
