No doubt, massage is one of the most efficient methods for relaxation, beneficial for your overall health.
Plus, you can do it yourself at the comfort of your home.
What massages do is improve your metabolism, stimulate sweat secretion, reduce fat, and enhance blood circulation both in the body and through the tissues. Massages are also beneficial for your skin; they rejuvenate the skin by making it healthier and more beautiful.
Furthermore, massages eliminate the acids responsible for cramps. They also relax the muscles and stimulate digestion.
The most important thing about this massage is that it’s healing. It is considered that your feet play a significant role in the nervous system because the soles of your feet contain more sweat glands and sensitive nerve-endings per square centimeter than any other part of your body. Many of these nerve-endings are connected with other organs in your body, and by massaging them you actually stimulate the organs in your body. That’s why health experts say that the feet represent a map of the whole organism.
Therefore, massaging your feet, more particularly, applying pressure on particular spots of your feet allows you to treat various ailments and maintain proper function of your organs. You should apply pressure strongly with your thumb on a particular spot, hold for several seconds and then move to the next spot.
Experts recommended to have this massage every night before going to bed. To get positive results massage your feet for 10-15 minutes.
