Disease Management: Health Tip: Massage Your Feet
Source: HealthDay

(HealthDay News) -- Massaging your feet can help manage pain, minimize tension and improve circulation and muscle stimulation.

The Harvard Medical School suggests how to perform a foot massage:

1.Relaxing in a comfortable seat, bend one leg so your ankle rests on the top of the opposite thigh.

2.Using a bit of oil or lotion, gently rub your entire foot, from the toes to the arch to the heel.

3.Knead the sole of your foot with the knuckles of one hand or by pressing with your thumbs.

4.Use your hands to gently stretch your toes apart.

5. Repeat these steps on both feet.
