Foot massage is a great way to improve the state of the whole organism because the feet can freely be called the anatomical map of the entire body, in which all organs and also systems are referred to as so-called reflex points.
On the feet, there are zones that correspond to all the organs and also glands in our body.
In addition, there are as well as over 70,000 nerve endings.
Today, many useful and also pleasant techniques for foot massage coming from different cultures are known.
Foot massage is good for the entire body
Prevent swelling in the legs, back, and also muscle pain
An ordinary foot massage will help with the feeling of weight in the legs and also muscle fatigue.
It is useful for pain and also spasms in the lower part of the leg and back.
In addition, it is useful with strong physical effort.
The effect of “healing” in the massage of your feet is created because it eliminates the feeling of discomfort, relaxes muscles after physical training and also prevents swelling and problems with the bone-muscular system.
Thai massage, for example, improves the lymphatic system, improves blood circulation and also strengthens the immune system.
In addition, it eliminates problems with the digestive tract and normalizes the urinary tract.
At the same time, it prevents swelling of the leg and the development of varicose veins.
It also helps with insomnia and tension and helps with cramps in the muscles.
Correct the circulation
Foot massage, or stimulation of certain spots on the feet (acupressure), is also one of the most common types of massage.
The feet are the most biologically active points, which are also the “projections” of the organs in the body.
Therefore, the massage of these points has a healing effect on certain internal organs, and can also eliminate tiredness and tension.
As well as a general massage of the foot, acupressure of the foot also helps with some chronic diseases.
It contributes to the normalization of blood pressure and lymphatic drainage, respiratory processes and also swelling.
This massage also helps you relax and relieve tension.
With this technique, you can also eliminate joint pains.
