Massage therapy actually provides calming and useful effects on the entire body, spirit, and mind. Experts claim that massage offers numerous physical and emotional benefits.
For instance, the foot massage is one of the most beneficial ones that applies pressure on specific foot parts, stationary or moving. The foot massage can be done using tension, vibration, or motion.
Additionally, manual massages, as well as those performed using massaging devices are equally effective. When it comes to manual massages, they are conducted using the hand, fingers, forearm, knee or elbow.
It is a fact that some feet points are directly related to specific parts of the body, and therefore their stimulation can heal and treats issues throughout the whole body.
Foot massage health benefits:

However, your feet should be massaged at night, before bedtime. In addition, this foot therapy is not recommended to last longer than 15 minutes.
Specifically, by massaging the big toe, you will promote lung and brain health, whereas the other toes are associated with pain, so that by massaging the other toes, you will relieve and even treat a wide range of painful issues.
