Our Feet Do a Lot for Us

They carry us around all day, bear the brunt of our morning jog and endure countless evenings in uncomfortable and restrictive shoes.

Despite all this, they are usually sorely neglected! A healing foot massage is one way we can treat our feet (or if we are lucky, get someone else to treat our feet!) while benefiting our whole body.

Foot massage dates back over 5,000 years to ancient Egypt and China! Based on these ancient practices, reflexology came about and was introduced to the United States in 1913.

Reflexology involves applying pressure to the feet in order to affect a physical change in the body. Placement of the pressure is based on a complex system of zones and reflex areas that correspond to other parts of the body.

The benefits of foot massage are endless – not to mention it feels downright great! Although there are no “hard facts” to prove what a foot massage can really do, practitioners and patients alike claim that reflexology can:

  • Cure colds/minor ailmentsdr-foot-foot-massage-reflexology
  • Prevent/cure diseases
  • Increase energy
  • Relieve stress, pain, and anxiety
  • Improve blood and lymph circulation
  • Prevent injury
  • Relieve pain from MS and chemotherapy
  • Stimulate activity of internal organs
  • Successfully treat liver dysfunction, constipation, IBS, chronic headaches, and skin allergies
  • Relieve pressure on legs and feet in pregnant women

The benefits aren’t purely physical. A good foot massage can also improve your mental and emotional state. Most of those who seek out a reflexologist are looking for relaxation and stress relief. With less stress in your life, your chance of heart disease drops considerably.
