How to do the foot massage – The order to conduct foot massage:
Foot massage has a relatively fixed procedure, so it is impossible to use your feet to conduct a massage arbitrarily. Of course, the massage sequence to protect health should not be molded by machines, it can be flexibly changed depending on the actual situation to choose the right sequence for you to conduct.
Soak your feet with warm water or herbs.
Before conducting a foot massage, always use warm water or herbal medicine to soak your feet, which can increase the sensitivity of the feet and improve the treatment effect. Usually the water temperature is between 38-45 degrees Celsius.
Massage the feet and soles
Place both hands on your feet, gently stroking from your toes to your ankles. Move your hands to either side of the ankle bones, and then use your fingers to rub along the soles of your feet. Repeat this operation several times.
Use the width of your palms to perform circular motions along the soles of the feet, up on the sides of the feet, and past the insteps. This exercise improves body’s overall posture and brings fresh blood to the feet.
Stretching the feet
Fingers dug around the soles of the feet, glued the wrists and two thumbs to the edges of the instep. Pull toward the ankle. This stretch creates a comfortable sense of width and space in the foot.
Lift the foot with one hand, and use the fingertips of the other hand to massage around the outer ankle bone. Apply this action to the inner ankle.
Acupressure on the soles of the feet
Using the thumb mainly to press the reflex zones and acupoints in the soles of the feet is equivalent to parts of the human body: eyes, liver, stomach, intestines, lungs, heart, and spleen,…
There are six most important acupuncture points of the foot:
- Dung Tuyen acupoint : [Location] Located at the sunken point of the soles of the feet 1/3 forward. [Treatment] Can strengthen the kidney, detoxify the kidney, and effectively regulate the body.
- Inner family : [Location] Located between the 2nd and 3rd toes. [Treatment] Toothache, backache, trigeminal neuralgia.
- Bat Phong acupoints : [Location] Includes 8 points in between the toes of the 2 feet. [Treatment] Helps treat diseases of rheumatism, toe inflammation, and foot pain.
- Thai pulse point : [Location] 2 inches above the first and second toe slits, first and second finger concave areas. [Treatment] Headache, dizziness, epilepsy, children hit by wind, urinating incompatibility, uterine bleeding.
- Suture Point : [Location] Located below the medial ankle, between the shin bone and the toe. [Treatment] Soft tissue around the ankle is damaged, and instep pain, gastritis, colitis, and poor digestion.
- Xie Khe Point : [Location] The concave part between the tendons of the foot and the muscle of the big toe, located between the horizontal line between the ankle and the instep. [Treatment] Joint pain, soft tissue damage, headache.
The toes were subjected to a fantastic amount of stress. That’s why the impact and toe massage greatly affect the whole body. With one hand on the foot, the other hand massages the toes from the big toe to the little toe. If necessary, you can change hands.
• Poor body posture sometimes causes stress on the toes. That’s because the body weight is not evenly distributed across the feet.
• The soft skin between the big toe and the second toe is especially sensitive to contact, so be careful, pulling may tickle the person receiving the massage.
• Don’t pull your toes too hard.
Stroking the shins
First, apply oil on the legs and perform continuous massage movements, then massage in the shape of a fan to relax the legs. To relieve tension in the lower leg, apply a deep massage to the area between the shin bones. Poke the soft end of the thumb between the two long bones and work it out from the ankle to the knee.
Relax your knees
Slide your fingers under the pillow to support it. Use the soft end of your thumb to trace around the circle of the kneecap, from the base to the top of the bone, clearly back and forth. Repeat a few times. Then use the soft tips of your thumbs to round the top of the kneecap. Press firmly but gently.
Stretching two legs
Warm up the thighs with massage movements in the shape of a fan, a circle, then a massage. Continue with a few directed massage movements, going from the foot up to the thigh, then glide down again, along the sides of the leg, and finally out of the foot. Repeat all these movements with the other leg.
While moving from the bottom up, correct your posture accordingly.
After finishing the foot massage process, proceed to clean the feet. After that, you should let the person being massaged rest for about 5 minutes; at this time, thirst and urination often appear.
