These types of massages have been done for many years and have the role of relieving pressure and pain in the legs. Regular foot care is important, not only to reduce the possibility of a problem that may limit mobility but also because the feet are connected through energy channels to all organs in the body.
The benefits of foot massages are as follows:
- It helps to reduce disorders of the musculoskeletal system, ie reduces muscle discomfort, swelling, and weight of the legs.
- The nervous system will be more relaxed, ie it reduces nervousness, insomnia, and stress.
- Circulatory system disorders: poor circulation of venous and / or lymphatic return, swelling of the legs, overload, etc.
- In addition to these benefits, foot massage also has the role of stimulating circulation and helping to oxygenate the tissues and improves the overall appearance.
- Chronic pain: caused by pathologies in the plantar arch (flat foot, cavus, etc.)
- Talalgia and metatarsalgia: pain in the heel, in the center, and in the middle of the foot.
- Alteration of ligaments, tendons, and leg muscles.
- Post-surgical rehabilitation of the foot.
- Foot disorders in athletes.
There are cases in which masseurs cannot apply their massage techniques, so I recommend that you consult a medical specialist to perform a study of the condition and to establish the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Take special care with:
- Circulatory disorders such as lymphadenitis, phlebitis, and thrombophlebitis.
- Hemorrhagic disorders.
- Heart disease
- Tumor processes and cancer.
- Infectious skin.
- Trauma and bone fractures.
- Muscle tears (fibers) and tendon.
- Febrile states.
