We’ve all experienced some sort of foot pain at some point and time in our lives. Like that time you bought those shoes that you just couldn’t live without, even though they were too tight.
There have also been times when we have had a nagging pain that just wouldn’t seem to go away. Something like a ball getting lodge in the bottom of your foot.
The foot is one of the most sensitive parts of the body. With each foot there is 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons. Which makes up about 25% of the bones in the body. On each foot there are over 7,000 nerve endings called reflexes that correspond to every organ and system within your body. So when your experiencing foot discomfort, it could be something serious.
For instance, people who are diabetic can experience getting a foot or toes removed if symptoms become deadly. That’s why regular foot care is important.
Massaging the feet regularly can bring some very noticeable changes over time. The benefits of getting foot massage can be:
•Normalizes gland function
•promotes overall well-being
•strengthens immune system
Getting services like reflexology can began a turnaround in a persons overall health. Also it wouldn’t hurt to walk outside in the grass sometimes. Doing so allows to electrical energy from the earth to enter into the body, which allows for healing. Nature is the best medicine you know.
Be sure when getting any body work done that the products used are chemical free, and preferably food based. This is to insure no pathogens enter into the body through the skin, causing any damage the the organs or cells.
If you’re a “do it yourselfer” like myself, massaging with coconut oil is always a great route to go. Going through each toe and massaging top and bottom of the foot brings much relief and comfort from the long day. Also, try and wear the feet out as much as possible to avoid bacteria build up and fungus.
So next time you’re out getting your grooming work done, be sure to think of your feet as well. You’ll be glad you did.
