A foot massage is a type of massage that focuses solely on your feet. Since then, the Balinese have traditionally used foot massage to identify and cure all illness. A foot massage is also used for relaxation and to alleviate sore soles and arches.
In reflexology, the feet have zones that correspond to parts of the body. So a foot massage stimulates and balances energy in those meridians and organs. A foot massage may actually release endorphins as well as reduce stress hormones.
Most spas offer reflexology, and the treatment typically lasts approximately 30 minutes. It’s important to have a conversation with your reflexologist beforehand to discuss your “issues,” whether it is constipation, a tension headache or trouble sleeping.
