Hi I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax to the Max Massage Therapy and today we're going to be discussing different types of foot massage. One of the most common types you may have heard of is that of reflexology. Reflexology basically indicates that they talk about the foot is a reflection of the body and so that the toe is the head, your sinus points are at the end of each toe, your spine runs along the edge of the foot here, intestinal stuff is here, sciatic pain could be addressed through the heels, eyes and nose are up here and the different types of the body are reflected in the mirror of the foot. So if you have something going on digestively but you can't rub on the belly then you can rub this part of the foot and that would help. So that is one type of massage that you can do on the foot. The other is just a relaxing foot rub where you come in and just do relaxing nice even work on the foot. You can also do a hot stone massage on the foot and get smaller stones that you would work with that are heated up and rub those stones into the foot down through here and that does a lot towards releasing any possible fascitis and issues that somebody might have and just relaxing the feet in general. Then you have the therapeutic work where somebody has specific pain issues going on and you would go in and work on those specific areas on the foot to give relief of those pain areas and those are the types of massages you can do on the feet, reflexology, therapeutic, relaxing and hot stone. When you are working on the feet enjoy it and have fun.
