Rub those feet!
Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.
Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health.
We know that foot massages can release a great amount of tension and make you overall more relaxed and comfortable. However, do you know why that is? This is why you should get a foot rub every day and the answer may surprise you.
Massage therapy is also known as reflexology because it relaxes your body, relieves tension and promote healing through pressure points. This goes double for your feet.
As a result, a separate body part has a positive reaction. However, your feet are a major part of this because they’re connected to your organs. When you massage the feet, you can increase your stimulation as well as your libido.
Massaging your feet can actually have several health benefits and may even prevent disease.
Surprisingly, different parts of your feet and toes are connected to different parts of your body. Your big toe is connected to your lungs and brain while your second, third and fourth toes can help with toothaches. Your pinky toe can cure earaches.
Getting a regular foot massage can have a number of health benefits such as:
- preventing disease
- promoting proper blood circulation
- improve your sleep
Parts of your feet are connected to organs such as your heart, eyes and even your tongue.
To properly massage your feet, rub oil into the tops of your feet before rubbing your thumb across the sole in a circular motion. Then rub each toe individually to properly exercise each connective part. Did you know rubbing your feet could do so much?
