Benefits of Foot Therapy

Foot therapy can be a relaxing and rewarding experience. It falls into two categories consisting of foot massages and reflexology. The latter is done by stimulating the energy channels in the body by touching the feet in specific areas. There are parts of the foot that are connected to various organs and bones and can interact with the tissues in the feet. When a foot massage is given, it is generally more direct and may be helpful in relieving tight muscles. Additionally, circulation may be improved, and existing soreness may be reduced. Many people enjoy having reflexology performed on them as it can bring positive feelings to the overall body. The digestive system may be improved in addition to having increased energy.
