Foot massages are one of the best ways to be welcomed home after an exhausting day out. Kick your feet up (literally!) and let the tensions be kneaded out of your soles – if you’re so lucky to have someone give your feet that much-needed massage.
But an even “better” version of a foot massage? Foot reflexology. Not quite the same as a regular foot massage, foot reflexology doesn’t just feel good on the soles of the feet. It also helps to reduce tension in the other parts of your body too.
What is foot reflexology?
Based on the belief that the body’s systems are mirrored in the feet, foot reflexology targets pressure points on the sole to relieve stress in the other parts of the body.
One theory is that pressing a specific point on the sole sends a signal to the brain, which sends then sends a message to the corresponding areas of the body. The other is that massaging along the meridian channels on the foot unblocks the pathways and encourages the flow of qi.
Either way, foot reflexology is believed to be beneficial to the body in general – not just the feet – and it’s super soothing too, making it a great choice of treatment to pamper yourself with.
