Why Foot SPA
Leonardo da vinci said ‘The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art!’. Unfortunately, foot is one part we usually ignore taking care of. Our feet are most likely the abused part of the body, and are less taken care of. Majority of us do not give that much attention to our feet compare to other parts of our body. Reason behind that is that we always think we can always wear shoes to cover them up, right? But mind you, having healthy feet promotes healthy lifestyle and of course, a healthy hygiene and a well-rounded well-being. There is nothing better giving ourselves a treat, time to relax and give our feet the utmost care they deserve. Besides, they carry our weight as we carry our daily tasks. They also deserve to be pampered once in a while. One thing our feet love the most is giving them a foot spa.
Reflexology is an ancient healing practice based on the principle that there are reflex points on the feet that correspond to the body’s different organs and glands. These points are located on the soles, ankles, toes and upper part of the foot. In reflexology, pressure is applied to special areas on the feet with specific thumb, finger or hand techniques. Stimulating and applying pressure to these reflexes on the feet is definitely pleasurable, but at the same time it helps promote good health.
