Feet function as the body’s shock absorbers and are many times the hardest worked of all body parts. Unfortunately, many of our clients experience foot fatigue on a regular basis and a one hour massage session does not allow enough time to pamper and fully address the issues of the feet. Learn and experience a specialized 4-part foot treatment employing 4 different products and massage therapies as follows: 1) foot soak with compression, 2) circular effleurage with abrasives, 3) pressure point therapy with foot mask and 4) rejuvenating foot massage with lotion.
Benefits of foot massage include the most basic, it feels good! Clients can experience relaxation as well as pain relief. Other general benefits include stress relief, reduction of tension, improved blood circulation, stimulation of the lymphatic system (facilitating the flow of lymph throughout the body), loosening of the feet’s connective tissue to lessen stiffness, and promotion of overall good health. Foot massage can also help fight depression and improve the quality of sleep by helping the body to unwind, which encourages restful sleep.
The client is comfortably seated during this relaxing, 30-40 minute therapeutic process. It can be offered as an add-on service to a full body massage or it can be a focused session on its own. Add it to your menu of services to increase your income and to further benefit your clients.
