Foot Massage

 

Massage from the toes to the heel, using your thumbs under the foot and using fingers on top of the foot.  You should find this to be very soothing.

All massage should be go with the flow of the body, e.g., towards the heart.

If massaging a child or invalid, use gentle, comforting effleurage motions.

After a workout, petrissage movements are useful to help keep muscles supple.  Petrissage is like the motions used when gently kneading dough.  Each movement should be slow and careful, never causing pain.  These same movements are often helpful when used on fatty areas and on backs.  They can relax the muscles, increase circulation, help lymphatic flow and aid the body in releasing toxins.  Use slight pressure on your thumbs in this movement.
