The deep relaxation techniques of barefoot massage aim to ease the mind as well as the body. Muscles can become tight and ineffective for many reasons. Over time, stress, injury, poor circulation, overuse and misuse can cause pain and discomfort as well as restrict your range of motion. When left unattended these conditions can become habitual and hamper the quality of everyday life. Contracted muscles can press on or pinch your nerves causing tingling, numbness or pain. Deep barefoot massage therapy stretches and loosens tight contracted muscles and connective tissue, improving your range of motion and flexibility. Mental stress has been shown to make people more susceptible to physical illness. Massage therapy has an amazing effect on the nervous system, relaxing your body's muscle tension, easing the strain on vital organs and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation to return to normal, calming the nervous system. Now is the time to ease the mind as well as the body. Call me!
The human foot is a masterpiece. A work of art.
Combining structural strength and mechanical complexity. The 52 bones in your feet make up 25% of all the bones in your body. The soles of your feet contain over 7,000 nerve endings in each foot. There are 29 muscles associated with the human foot, responsible for motion and stabilization. Like the fingers, the toes have flexor and extensor muscles that power their movement and play a large role in balance. The foot has more than 100 muscle tendons and ligaments and 33 joints, 20 which are actively articulated. Talk about range of motion! Now you can receive a deep tissue massage without the pain often associated with traditional thumbs and elbows. Handy feet, slowly sinking down into soft tissue using gentle fascia manipulation mobilizing adhesive tissues. Soothing, deep relaxation.
