Guess what's the best way to relieve your tired feet? If you think about massage - right you are! And the best part is that you don't have to be a professional to do it yourself.

A foot massage can be performed at any time you wish and as part of a home pedicure procedure as well! The following illustrations depict some standard foot massage techniques that nail technicians perform on their clients during a pedicure - there is nothing difficult about it. If you succeed in talking your best friend, younger sister or your boyfriend into doing a foot massage for you, just let them read this article, put on lose, comfortable clothes, sit comfortably with your back supported and ... enjoy!
PS: don't forget to promise to massage them some time :)

For massage you'll Need:

2 teaspoons (10 ml) castor, jojoba, soybean, or extra-virgin olive oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
1 drop German chamomile essential oil
1 drop geranium essential oil

• Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir thoroughly. Yields 1 treatment.

Start by relaxing your foot. Hold your foot so that one hand is on the sole and one on the top. If using a massage oil or lotion, protect clothing and furniture with a towel or two. Rub oiled or creamed hands together vigorously to warm them before beginning the foot massage. Working from your ankle to your toes. Massages it with long, firm strokes. Stroking, stimulates circulation and warms the foot.

• Holding your heel in one hand and your toes in the other circle your foot five times clockwise then anticlockwise. This will loosen the joints and relax the foot.

• Starting with your big toe, stroke the length of each toe in turn and, when your reach the tip, pull gently to stretch it out. Repeat this three times. Pulls and Squeezes can be very calming.

• Using our thumb and starting at your big toe move along the line of pads just below your toes. Press on each one firmly before moving on to the next. Work your way to your little toe, then change hands and, using your other thumb, work your way back.
Repeat twice.

• Use your thumb to press down gently from the top to the base of your big toe. Repeat on all of your toes. When your reach your little toe, change hands and use the other thumb to go back the other way .Repeat twice.

• Holding your toes in one hand, use your thumb on the other hand to press along the sole, pressing in a line from the base of your big toe to the center of your foot, following the line of the metatarsal. Repeat on all your toes, then repeat on the top of your foot following the same line. This will help in releasing tension in the inner and outer longitudinal arches.

• Starting at your heel, use your thumb to press along the inside edge of your foot all the way up to your big toe. Press firmly and follow the line up over your instep. Then repeat on the outside edge of your foot, from your heel to your little toe.

• Finally, massage the lower half of your sole, using firm pressure. Rotate your ankle, both clockwise and anticlockwise, as in step 2 . Repeat step 1 , using long, firm strokes from ankle to toes. Put on a cotton sock and repeat the massage on the other foot.

Hi! Very nice site! Thanks you very much! xFXTObzQ8Jfm

If you enjoy foot massages and live around the San Gabriel Valley. You should really try the really inexpensive Chinese foot massages for ONLY $15. You get your feet soak in a tub of chinese herbs and have your neck and shoulder rubbed first. Then they work on your feed right after for 40 minutes. A total of 1 hour! It's like stepping into China itself for that price. The place to go would be Kortry because it is the best decorated place with a relaxing and calming atmosphere. They also accept credit cards and the others don't. It is not even dingy like the other places I've been! I still can't believe the price. Kortry Skin Care Center 1788 S.
