5 Unexpected Benefits Of Foot Tapotement That Make You Want To Have One Now
1. Improves blood circulation
Due to a mostly sedentary lifestyle we have become unaccustomed to using our muscles on a regular basis.
The muscles in the feet get hardly any exercise and circulation is often impaired by tight and uncomfortable
shoes. A 20â€“30 minute massage session before going to bed can greatly improve circulation
in the lower extremities,which is particularly important for people suffering from diabetes.
2. Helps prevent foot and ankle injuries
Massaging the feet can help with joint pain and aid recovery after an injury,
as well as reduce muscle soreness.However, when massage is combined with foot
and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching it can prevent future injuries,
as well as speed up recovery of existing injuries.
3. Reduces the effects of depression and anxiety
Looking at some of the studies that have been done on the effects of massage it seems that this,
goes beyond simply putting people in a relaxed state for the duration of the massage.
Frequent sessions have been shown to significantly reduce anxiety in people.
4. Helps with headaches and migraines
A study conducted in Denmark showed that people suffering from headaches and migraines
showed great improvement after receiving massage treatments.
The test subjects stopped taking their medication, and three months after completing their treatments, 65%
had reduced symptoms while a small number had been cured
5. Lowers blood pressure
High blood pressure has become fairly common in modern men and women.
It can be caused by a number of things such as stress and an unhealthy diet,
but in most cases it has no particular cause and is believed to
be a result of environmental factors and genetics.
A study conducted on healthcare staff working with elderly people
suffering from dementia â€“ a job that is highlystressful and both physically and
mentally taxing â€“ showed that a 10-minute foot
massage session up to threetimes a week resulted in improved mood,
less anxiety and lower blood pressure.
