Simple tips for Foot Massage….

Massage is described as “therapeutic touch”…. It is a way of using the natural human instinct for touching and being touched as a mean of healing illness and promoting well being… There many kinds of therapeutic touch…Foot massage, reflexology and acupressure are few ways used on feet to the benefit of your mind and body… Our feet takes a great punishment in the course of the day, yet they are so often left out of pampering… There are many ways to give our own feet a special treat… In a way it will relax and stimulate the whole body…

I developed a passion of getting this foot massage… I get it done almost ten days once… It has been a habit and I feel my legs and body needs pampering… I have recommended many of my friends and family to go for reflexology… First time I took my mother, she almost kicked the masseur… Now she is also addicted like me… In Kuala Lumpur there are few places I really like to go such as Endah Parade in Sri Petaling they have so many outlets… one of them is Reborn… Reborn has many branch all over Malaysia… Really miss going there…

Our feet supports us… they take us wherever we want to in life… They are highly sensitive and responsive to touch… They contain more than 14,000 nerve endings between them… stroking and rubbing the feet can have a relaxing effect on the entire body… Foot massage is one of the most effective ways of lifting your mood… Give your feet a few minutes rub to warm them up… Baby oil could be used… Reflexology and soothing massage helps you sleep at night… Follow your instincts to touch and be touched… give your inner self a boost by holding and massaging your feet… Of course it would not be as good as when someone do it for you, but at times some people just cannot stand the pain… Also not always we are able to go out for a massage…
