                                                           By Nimesh Ajwani



   While many of us have experienced having our bodies and necks massaged and soothingly rubbed
there are very few of us who think that our feet might need this pampering too. A foot massage is the
best type of pampering that we can give our tired and aching feet.

You can give your feet a soothing foot massage or ask a friend to help you have a foot massage. To
start your foot massage you will need to have your feet cleaned. You can soak your feet in Epsom
salts, lavender or peppermint oil for 10 minutes in a warm water foot bath.

Dry the feet thoroughly and make sure that even the area between your toes is dry. Once the feet are
beginning to dry you will need to rub some soothing oil on your feet. Hold one foot in your lap and use
one hand to support this foot.

With the other hand you should begin to massage the top of the foot. For this part of the foot massage
you will need to use your thumbs. Slow, firm, stroking motions that start at your toes and move
upwards to the ankles are the best way to start this foot massage.

When you are near the ankles the foot massage will follow the same path back down to your toes. The
return journey should be accompanied by slow stroking with the thumbs providing the required
massage. The pressure that is applied at the toes should be lighter than at the ankle. You will need to
repeat this foot massage 5 times.

Next in a cupping motion you will need to gently hold the heel of your foot. With your free hand hold the
top of the foot and gently rotate the foot. The first rotation should be done clockwise and next
anticlockwise.

Repeat this step about 4 times to relax, calm and de-stress your aching foot and ankle joints. This foot
massage must be done gently so that you don't end up hurting your foot as a result of the foot
massage.

When you have completed rotating the foot you will need to give your soles a really soothing foot
massage. This part of the foot massage begins at the base of your big toe. The foot massage for the
toes starts with the big toe.

Once your big toe has been given a de-stressing massage, the foot massage will then move towards
the other toes. Gentle rolling motions can provide the ball of your foot a relaxing foot massage.

By the time your foot massage will have been carried out on both of your feet, you will have calmed
down and your day's stresses will have vanished as well. The added bonus is that your feet are all
ready for walking around your home with no aches or pains to be felt.

                                         What Should You Know About Foot Massage
                                                                 By Anne Hoston



 After a tiring day whether it is at work or simply shopping when you return home the first thing that you
notice is that your feet are killing you. The simplest thing that you can do to relieve this pain is to sit
down and take your shoes off. This takes away the immediate pains. Then you wriggle your feet and
toes to restore the blood circulation in your feet. This helps a little more but to give your entire foot total
relief having a foot massage is sheer bliss.

A loved one or even you can provide the benefits of a foot massage. The main things that you need will
be a comfortable place to keep your foot on, creams, oils, essential oils that are used for massages
and your favorite soft mood music or even a meditation CD.

To give yourself a foot massage you will first need to get your feet clean and dry including between the
toes. You can if you want to soak them in a foot bath with Epsom salts. This foot bath will de-stress you
so that you feel even more relaxed. Next rub your massage oil onto your foot.

Holding your foot that is in your lap gently in one hand to support it, with the other hand begin to
massage the top part of your foot. Use your thumbs for this massage. Use slow, firm stroking motions
that start at the toes and move upward towards the ankles. Once you come to the ankles following the
same path massage your way down to your toes. The pressure of the massage must be lighter than at
the ankle. Repeat this foot massage 5 times.

Next gently hold the heel of your foot in a cupping motion. With your other hand hold the top of the foot
and gently rotate the foot first clockwise and after anticlockwise. Do this 3 to 4 times to relax, calm and
de-stress the foot, ankle joints and your senses. Do this foot massage gently so that you don't hurt
yourself.

Now still holding your foot in one hand, with the other hand, massage the sole of your foot with the
thumb. Begin at the base of your big toe and slowly move towards the other toes. Use gentle rolling
motions to give the ball of your foot a relaxing foot massage.

You can then knead your foot. Here you will use your thumb or the finger tips to give the massage.
Knead the sole of the foot in a back and forth motion. With your knuckles "Knead" the second joints of
your foot. Use large pressing and rotating motions but be gentle.

By the time you will have ended your foot massage not only will your feet feel good but you will have
calmed down and your day's stresses will have vanished as well. Instant bliss.
