We all know when our feet hurt it affects our whole body. They carry our body weight and like wheels of a car,  they need to work properly to get us to where we need to go. Yet, while they are so important to our health, our feet are often the most neglected and least pampered part of our body.  

A great way to keep your feet feeling their best is to treat yourself to a foot massage or even give one to yourself. A foot massage differs from foot reflexology. Reflexology targets pressure points on the feet which encourage healing in other areas of the body.  That is a topic for another day.

We are talking about a basic footage massage, which you can get from most massage therapists for 30 minutes or even an hour. But you can also give yourself a five minute foot massage before bed each night to help you relax and relieve tension.
