OH, MY ACHING FEET: FEET AND LEGS
Foot Massage

GIVE YOUR SELF A FOOT MASSAGE:

1) First, soak your feet in warm water spiced with lavender and a few drops
of eucalyptus oil. Or, you can use Epsom Salts if you want unscented
water. This soak will stimulate your foot muscles and expel some of the
tension that comes from wearing shoes all day.

2) Apply lotion (not oil) to feet with long, even strokes towards the heart.
Grab one foot in your hands and use both thumbs to apply gentle pressure
to the tops of toes, the top of the foot, and ankle. Rotate the ankle to loosen
it up. Knead the heel and ball of your foot with your thumb, using a circular
motion. Repeat with the other foot.

3) To manipulate muscles you donít normally use, scrunch a towel with
your toes. Lay a hand towel flat on the floor. Put your foot at one end and
curl toes under, pulling the towel closer to you. Release. Stretch your toes
again and grab another portion of towel and curl your toes under, etc.
Repeat until the towel has been completely scrunched.

4) Spread out the toes of your right foot and interlace the fingers of your left
hand between them; hold for a count of 5. Repeat on the left foot.
