Tired feet fight to help the spine maintain healthy alignment, creating a domino effect of havoc throughout the muscular system. The muscles in the body depend highly on the performance and solid foundation of the feet. Exhausted and achy feet are likely to have an unhappy body.Massaging the feet can alleviate anxiety and bring about a deep state of relaxation. One important point that is situated on both feet is the solar plexus reflex. The solar plexus is sort of a little warehouse where all your stress is stored. When the solar plexus point is pressed on, stress is released and the body is renewed.
When the foot is rubbed and palpated, all the elements of a foot massage come together to bring energy to the body. According to theories of reflexology, foot massage releases any blockages that can hold back energy that should be flowing through the body freely.
Aromatherapy oils are used with the foot massage to bring the benefits of the foot massage to a higher level.
Aromatherapy uses pure essences from plants, which may have a preventative effect, helping to care for common ailments while working alongside medical treatment in the healing process.
The essential oils have many different properties and as research has shown, can be stimulating, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, relaxing, calming, soothing, and uplifting.
Aromatherapy, therefore has the ability to affect the emotions, promote well being and balance psychologically.
