Give Your Feet A Much Needed BreakPosted on
It’s not easy being feet. You’re the first thing to hit the floor in the morning, and you’re pretty much at the bottom of things from there on out. You keep everything upright and moving forward throughout the day, and chances are that you don’t get much in the way of thanks for all that. Let your feet know how much you truly appreciate all that they do for you with a professional foot massage.
The benefits of a professional foot massage go well beyond simply making your tootsies feel better. It can have impacts throughout your body and affect your long-term wellness, too. Probably the most obvious wellness benefit is that foot massages improve circulation. Being at the lowest point in your body, it can be difficult to get blood to return to your heart and lungs from its journey to your feet. Massages will help your blood getting on its way, and that increased circulation can affect everything from cold feet to faster recovery times for injuries.
Foot massages have also been shown to promote better sleep. It’s a natural, medication-free way to alleviate stress. They can even help alleviate anxiety disorders, and studies have shown up to a 50% reduction in feelings of anxiety from participants who received regular foot massages. A foot massage can also help relieve pain in other areas of the body, too. Researchers have discovered that combining foot or hand massage with drug therapies for post-operative pain worked significantly better than pain medication alone. It even worked wonders on chronic migraine sufferers as well as patients receiving treatment for cancer, diabetes and muscular sclerosis. All of this relief comes from this non-invasive, natural therapy.
