Do you ever wonder why you have little (sometimes big) pains in your feet? Or perhaps you get a screaming cramp in the feet or calf muscle. Do you have plantar fasciitis, hammer toes or swollen ankles?
Reflexology can help with these issues and in many cases completely eliminate an issue.
Here are the top 10 health benefits of foot massage and reflexology.
1. Promotes Better Sleep
2. Improves Blood Circulation
Due to sedentary lifestyles, most of us do not use the muscles of our feet properly. Also, improper footwear like tight shoes hamper normal circulation in the feet. Foot massage will also stimulate the lymphatic system and help prevent varicose veins.
3. Helps You Relax
Foot massage gives you energy by releasing any blockages that hold back energy and relieving symptoms of stress and fatigue.
4. Fights Depression
Certain points on the feet are helpful in alleviating depression symptoms.
For instance, the spot in the center of the big toe, the spot at the center of the ball of your foot or the ball of the foot located under the big toe are associated with emotional stability and mental health.5. Relieves Aches and Pains
Reflexology can help treat different types of pains and aches, such as headaches, migraines, neck pain, lower and upper backaches.
6. Makes Feet Healthier
One easy way to keep your feet healthy and free from all kinds of foot problems is a regular foot massage. It helps stimulate the muscles around your feet, lessens stiffness and even reduces pain in the ankles or the heels.
7. Alleviates Edema
8. Eases PMS and Menopause Symptoms
Many women suffer from symptoms like feelings of sadness, irritability, insomnia, bloating, fatigue, headaches and mood swings during premenstrual syndrome (PMS).9. Restless Leg Syndrome
Foot massage is also helpful in treating restless leg syndrome, a kind of neurological disorder. Restless leg syndrome can cause difficulty sleeping due to the unpleasant sensations like throbbing, pulling and the urge to move your legs.10. Lowers Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, also called HBP or hypertension, can be controlled with regular foot massage. Studies have also found that foot refloxology may help reduce systolic blood pressure and triglyceride.
