When people make compliments to my feet, I remember a phrase from m / s. My Fair Nanny: These would be legs, but in good hands !. And although the heroine of the film dreamed of the hands of a caring husband, I mean the hands of a massage therapist.
Principles of self-massage
Foot massage – the procedure is pleasant and useful at the same time, it allows to improve blood circulation and relieve fatigue. There are a lot of nerve endings on the feet, so massage gives you the opportunity to relax the whole body.
A couple of times a week, when the shower is taken, the manicure is done, and a moisturizer is applied to the face, the turn of the legs begins.
Before the massage, I use the cream to ensure a better glide of the hands. I sit down on the sofa, and place my legs on his back, spreading a handkerchief so as not to stain the furniture upholstery with cream.
I start with a stop. It is they who carry our body weight all day long. Mash every finger from the little finger to the big. For the foot alternate rubbing, massaging movements with your fingertips and tingling with your nails. The latter has a beneficial effect on the nervous system.
I make several circular movements with my foot, stretch it and bend it. This relieves tension in the ankle. Firstly, I warm up my shins and thighs up and down, and then carefully rub each muscle.
The full cycle of foot massage takes 10-15 minutes. After that, you can go to sleep. The accumulated fatigue of the day will no longer prevent entering the service of Morpheus.
Oh, those heels!
If I had to run all day in high heels, then I would roll the rolling pin in my feet. This partially returns the bones and joints to their usual position. After all, everyone knows that an unstable heel above 5 cm causes deformation of the foot? Yes, we know it and continue to wear a thin high stud.
And they say that they can not be trained …
Of course, much nicer when the foot massage is done by another person. Especially, knowledgeable in this matter. But every day to visit the spa – an expensive pleasure. Therefore, I strongly encourage my husband to do this procedure.
I praise him and put his feet in the moment when he relaxed and does not expect trickle. For several years of tireless workouts, my husband became a real pro. You can even offer services. But I will not – very little.
And in the morning, a cat does a foot massage for me. She is capable of anything, so that I wake up faster and feed her, so she comes with a purr and does a massage through a blanket. Claws are so sharp that it feels great. There is one drawback; when carried away, the cat often scratches.
In such a simple way, as a foot massage, I maintain my beauty. I was also told about the anti-cellulite massage of the hips. It seems to be effective, but, according to reviews, from his skin turns into one solid bruise. To do this massage, I do not venture. Maybe someone has experience and share their own impressions or results?
