Indulge Your Feet with a Self-Massage

Oh my poor aching feet! How many times have you said that to yourself?

Well, we have a remedy for that and it’s easy to do. Give yourself a slow, relaxing foot massage!

Stavros O. Alexopoulos, DPM recommends foot massages for their many benefits. The gentle, overall rubbing motion will improve your circulation, and keeping the muscles and tendons of your feet flexible and loose can help prevent foot and ankle injuries. Regular foot massages have even been shown to significantly reduce anxiety in cancer patients.
