Why We Need to Massage Our Feet Every Night Before Sleeping? [Video]
Massaging feet can help you in a lot of ways. All people in the world are constantly searching for natural or alternative ways to help treat disorders and different health conditions. More and more people don’t want to rely on modern health options. We can’t blame them and maybe they are right. All those treatments are usually expensive pharmaceuticals and involve incredibly harsh. They often have worse side effects than the actual health issue they are supposed to heal or alleviate.
That is only one part of the reason why so many people end up turning to homeopathic remedies. They make an effort to naturally heal or balance their bodies and their minds. One of the most effective and very popular alternative treatment methods is hands down massage therapy. The simple act of applying pressure to various points on our bodies does wonders to dissolve away pains, aches,worry and tension built up in our bodies. One form of massage therapy that people consider to be especially effective is reflexology.
What is Reflexology?
It means stimulation of a reflex point to actually relieve and help regulate abnormalities between different parts of our body. By applying gentle pressure and massaging specific points located on our hands or feet, we can actually help bring significant physical changes to our body. There are a lot of different areas on the foot which are related to certain body parts. Therefore, be sure to check out the following chart and video which map it all out for you to see.
Reflexology works by stimulating thousands of nerves in our feet and hands, thereby increasing blood flow.
Did you know that human feet have over 15,000 nerves?
They are all connected to form a network that reaches various areas of the body, like our glands and main organs. Many have found that by using the simple techniques at home they could dramatically relieve discomfort and pain caused by common ailments. People have also relieved digestion issues, headaches, back pain, sleep problems, and even reduced the effects of flu and colds. They have done this simply by massaging the touch points on the feet. There is connection with the area in which the problem stems from.
The treatments are amazingly simple and easy to do.
But the best part is the fact that they don’t cost a penny and they’re convenient if you practice them in your home. However, if you prefer or choose to, you can always go to a professional.
