Did you know? Foot massages can be used as foot therapy to:
Sometimes a headache is all in your head. Relax. ~ Hartman Jule

Use the foot diagram below for foot rubbing tips you can use on yourself or your partner. For my husband, a foot rub acts as foot therapy that helps him relax and reduce stress illness after a hectic day at work.
You can start by gently rubbing the base of your first (little) toe. Continue at the base of the second toe. Next, apply slight pressure between the first and second toes. Then, rub between the third and forth toe. Next, massage, stretch and pull the big toe gently and rub each side of the nails. Finally, massage the ball of your foot in a circular motion, followed by circling around your ankle joint with both hands in a clockwise motion.
Foot massages can also improve the circulation and energy level of your body
. Repeat the same steps on your other foot. You can do this feet massage in the evening a couple of times a week to give your tired feet a break.
