Foot massage is one of the most exquisite treats you can give to
yourself. Our feet are literally the foundations of our body, so keeping
them supple and healthy has far reaching benefits.
“The sessions have always been a wonderful start to the day
has been a very busy time for me. There have occasionally been
surprising moments where I have felt a kind of refreshing rush of blood
to the head or a sudden releasing of my stomach, etc. My ankles no
longer click and I feel more solid on the ground.”
In life we have to “stand on our own two feet”, sometimes “jumping in with both feet” while “having cold feet”. We need to have our feet planted firmly on the ground. Our feet are our foundations. If we look after them, treat them with love and care, then they will be able to serve us (even) better. One way of doing this is by massage.
“After each session I have felt invigorated, relaxed and
stress free. I
would recommend the reflexology to anyone who likes to feel like the
above. It's certainly helped my golf, too! No aching feet! Thank you.”
Tom, ex police man and keen golf player
I love having my feet massaged. They are easily accessible, you don't need to take your cloths off. They can be massaged though towels or socks, but obviously when you want to have a massage with oil, you need to be barefoot.
As our feet are the physical foundations of our body, thus foot massage not only affects our feet but everyting above them, leading to a general feeling of well-beng. Easing the muscles of the feet is likely to affect your knees, hips, spine, neck and head. You will be able to walk more softly and have a spring in your step....
According to Reflexology, our whole body is represented in our feet. Thus working the feet will stimulate and balance every organ in our body.
In Chinese Medicine vital energy (qi) flows through our whole body, in meridians in a continuous loop. Half of the meridians flow through our feet. These are stimulated by Tsuboki foot massage. As all the meridians are connected, the massage will affect the whole of our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Massage of the feet has got a special place in culture – Jesus washed the disciples feet before the last supper (Gospel of John 13:1-15). According to tradition, Buddha taught foot massage. That is why there are so many carvings of feet with symbols, so called Buddha's footprints, throughout Asia.
Thank you so much, this is exactly what I needed. I very much doubt any physiotherapist could have done better..

I arrived thinking that I was fine and was looking forward to a general massage. Regina started on my feet and we never got any further. The result was
