We all know that foot massages can feel great and make you feel more relaxed and comfortable however do you know why that is? Here are the reasons why you should get a foot massage every day and some of them may surprise you.
Massage therapy is more than just relaxing your body- through pressure points, you can relieve tension & heal in numerous ways. This is also known as Reflexology – is the practice of applying pressure to certain parts of the body. This works especially well on the feet as your feet contain several nerve endings. Reflexology works by stimulating the thousands of nerves in the hands & feet, thereby increasing blood flow. Human feet have about 15,000 nerves & they all connect to form a network that reaches different areas of the body. This form of healing occurs when pressure is applied to certain body parts (hands & feet) & as a result a separate body part has a positive reaction.
The feet are connected to the organs when they are massaged & can also increase your sexual drive & stimulation. The big toe is connected to your Lungs & Brain, while the second, Third & Fourth Toes relieve Tooth pain. Earaches can be cured through the Pinky Toe.
The disease is prevented, blood circulates properly and your sleep is approved when massaging the feet. So basically, play with your puppies each night to gain better health!
