If you’re in Melbourne, experiencing its cosmopolitan myriad of museums, architecture, street art, bars, cafes and restaurants, your feet are probably in need of a treat. Book in for some rest and relaxation for you and your feet with one of our Melbourne foot massage salons.
A foot massage is more than just a relaxing treat, it’s actually really beneficial to your health. A properly trained therapist will not only massage. They’ll manipulate your ankle joints, rotating and stretching, which will increase your mobility, the more mobile, the less likely you are to have any ankle injuries. Massaging the feet and lower legs reduces any swelling you might have, and improves circulation.
Reflexology takes health benefits a step further. Our feet, amazingly, have a reflex map of the whole body on them, and each area or our body relates to a specific area on our feet. It’s a reflexologists job to concentrate on these specific areas if you have a certain medical complaint (headaches, anxiety, digestive problems etc.). Or even if you don’t, reflexology is still for you as it’s so amazingly relaxing. A highly trained reflexologist may find areas that you didn’t know need work, such as poor digestion or hormonal problems. Some reflexologists also use acupressure techniques. Reflexology heals from your feet and acupressure opens up your energy lines (meridians) to get your energy (or Chi, or Qi) flowing properly. The two go hand in hand for maximum health benefits.
You might have reservations about having a foot massage, but really, don’t. If you’re ticklish then you don’t need to worry as therapists use long strokes and constant pressure which doesn’t feel tickly at all. And if you’re concerned your feet might not be as fresh as you’d like, all treatments start with a foot soak, so there’s nothing to worry about there, either!
You might massage your feet at home (or have a partner or a machine do it for you) but there’s nothing quite like a foot massage in a salon. Relaxing, serene and free from noisy interruptions. And a deeper massage and sense of relaxation than you’d ever get at home. Book in with one of our Melbourne salon today and never look back.
