Although all of our massages are great, 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.
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.
