The practice of foot massage has been used in many cultures for centuries to improve health and relax the body. Traditionally, foot massages are performed using the hands, although I may include the use of sticks to more effectively stimulate the reflex areas in the foot, which follow the belief that applying pressure to the more than 7,000 nerves in the foot can release energetic blockages in the rest of the body
- First, during an initial consultation, your therapist does a postural analysis and asks about any muscles that need special attention.
- Then your therapist leaves the room to allow you to undress with complete privacy. While outside, your therapist adds fragrant, essential oils to the massage cream or oil.
- Once you are ready, your therapist begins by massaging the tops of the feet as well as the heels, soles, toes. During this treatment, your Therapist moves on the ankles, soles, and pressure points to release any tension and create a positive massage experience.
- After the massage, your therapist discusses a self-care plan and recommends follow-up treatments, if necessary.
Aromatherapy makes an already relaxing and invigorating massage all the more therapeutic.
