Are you one of those people who love a good foot rub? Massaging the feet can help alleviate stress 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 and refreshed.
Leg and foot massage is a little bit different from, let’s say, back massage. The difference is that foot and leg massage invigorates not only the muscles, which are directly rubbed, but also gives a positive nurturing effect on the whole body. The reason for this is a massive set of reflex points, which are responsible for the state of the whole body. For example, there is a huge concentration of points in the arch of the foot, which according to modern reflexology are related to the spine. Therefore, stimulation of this area of the foot can help relieve pain in the back and bring a general ease to the body. The stimulation of the toes has a beneficial effect on the eyes, ears, nasal sinus, teeth and gums.
There are points that correspond to internal organs, the general state of health and even to the mood of the person. The active impact on these points leads to improved overall health and relieves a whole string of assorted ailments.
