The Best Foot Massages in Atlanta
Although we give awesome body massages, foot massages are what Treat Your Feet is most known for in the Atlanta area. Our name says it all. We know feet…at a scientific level! Our foot massages entail more than just a feel good rub. Foot reflexology techniques are involved.
What is Foot Reflexology?
Foot reflexology is a type of massage which originated in ancient China or Egypt around 4000 B.C. In foot reflexology, pressure is purposely applied to reflex points in the feet to send signals to other targeted parts of the body. Each foot contains more than 7,200 nerve endings, 19 muscles, 26 bones, and 107 ligaments! Your feet are linked to every part in the human body. Take a look at the chart below to see which foot reflex point corresponds to which body part/organ.
If you look at the diagram above, you’ll see that applying pressure to the insoles of both feet sends signals to the lumbar vertebrae and cervical spine. Applying pressure to the heel on both feet sends signals to the lower back and gluteal area. You’ll notice that the heart is linked to a reflex point on the right foot only. Our foot massage therapists know this diagram well.
If done correctly, what can foot reflexology cure?
If you’re looking to holistically heal some minor ailments, a foot massage at Treat Your Feet Buckhead is the way to go because our foot massage therapists are well-versed in foot reflexology techniques that have helped relieve:
- minor colds
- muscle tension
- back aches
- high blood pressure
- and whole lot more!
It’s not uncommon for our foot massage therapists to even be able to induce labor in expectant mothers who are overdue. If you are pregnant though, please consider our prenatal massage.
Benefits of Our Foot Massages
In addition to curing minor ailments, our customers have experienced the following benefits from getting regular foot massages:
- Increased energy levels by restoring alignment and balance while removing blockages
- Enhanced body alignment
- Corrected posture misalignments
- Reduced discomfort associated with orthopedic conditions
- Improved blood circulation throughout the body
These benefits are multiplied when foot massages are done on a regular basis. If you work in a profession that requires you to be on your feet all day, then regular foot massages are what you need. Standing for extended hours will eventually take its toll on your health. Standing for long hours will eventually cause long term health problems such as nerve damage, inflammation, and chronic back pain. Many of our clientele have become believers in foot reflexology after just one massage.
