Massage is the easiest way to achieve relaxation and preserve health. The name derives from the Arabic word “massa” which means touch.
The state of the muscles that move our body depends mostly on standing straight and appearance. Massage effects the muscles so they can stretch and contract, they become stronger and more relaxed because by massaging we remove excessive and accumulated lactic acid that causes cramps and muscle aches. In addition, the massage stimulates and facilitates digestion and is a great help, but it is also one of the ways to treat certain conditions in the body.
Each massage is great for the body, but the foot massage has especially large benefits for the whole body because it relaxes, rejuvenates, reduces swelling, increases blood circulation, improves sleep, the function of the joints and muscles and reduces blood pressure.
Research shows that short massage from 5 to 10 minutes on each foot before bedtime helps sleep quality and reduces the risk of insomnia.
