What are the benefits of a foot massage? In this post, we will take a brief look at some of the benefits you may receive from a foot massage.
Foot massages are very beneficial because there are numerous pressure points on the soles of the feet. By massaging the correct pressure points, we can reduce discomfort in different areas of the body. People who suffer from foot-related pain such as plantar fasciitis can benefit from foot massages as massage can help soothe discomfort and fatigue. Do foot massages help with swelling and circulation? Yes, foot massages can improve blood flow and circulation, which may help to reduce swelling and stiffness. By increasing oxygen and nutrients to the massage site, stiffness and swelling can be reduced, promoting healing and pain reduction. Additionally, improved blood circulation leads to improved lymphatic circulation, which boosts immunity by allowing the body to better remove waste and toxins. Another obvious benefit is that foot massages are relaxing! Relaxation can reduce stress and tension and in particular a foot massage before bedtime can improve sleep quality and duration.
This was just a brief introduction to the benefits of foot massages. There are many ways to massage your feet, from using your hands and tools to automated foot massagers. A Fujimi massage chair provides an excellent foot massage as rollers on the bottom of the footrest provide a scraping-style massage on the soles of the feet. Combine this with gentle pressure from compressive airbags and it becomes easy to obtain relief.
