WHY YOU SHOULD MASSAGE YOUR FEET BEFORE GOING TO BED
Massaging your feet in different places is linked to better health in different parts of the organs. Not only that, but it can lead to greater relaxation, less stress, and even greater sexual desire.
We will take a look at some of the benefits of foot massage that are supported by actual scientific research – benefits that are either immediate or can be seen and felt after a couple of weeks.
HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD MASSAGE YOUR FEET BEFORE GOING TO BED
It’s recommended to massage your feet every night before you go to bed. The treatment shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. In fact, the treatment is successful if it lasts 10 to 15 minutes.
1. IMPROVES CIRCULATION
A 10- to 20-minute foot massage before going to bed can improve circulation in legs. Restricted blood flow can cause heart and kidney problems, high blood pressure, varicose veins and organ damage in the long term.
2. HELPS WITH HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES
A study conducted in Denmark showed that people suffering from headaches and migraines showed great improvement after receiving reflexology treatments.
3. LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
A study conducted on healthcare staff working with elderly people suffering from dementia showed that a 10-minute foot massage session up to three times a week resulted in improved mood and lower blood pressure.
4. GREAT FOR SEX LIFE
The foot is one of the most nerve-rich parts of our body. All it takes is a few scented candles, some massage oil and light music to set the perfect mood for a night of passionate lovemaking. Not only does it feel good for your partner but it’s also an excellent form of foreplay.
5. PREVENTS FOOT AND ANKLE INJURIES
Massaging the feet can help with joint pain and aid recovery after an injury and reduce muscle soreness, too.
