Benefits of foot massage techniques
1, to promote blood circulation. In general, body temperature has a close relationship with blood circulation, low body temperature, low blood circulation, and elevated body temperature, blood circulation will also flourish. Foot reflexology can improve foot blood circulation, increase skin temperature, promote foot and systemic blood circulation, improve heart function and reduce heart load. Some people have tested that a healthy person massages their feet for 30 minutes, and their body blood flow increases 10-13 times for women and 13-18 times for men. Visible, hot water foot can make blood circulation smooth and improve.
2, to promote metabolism. Feet promote foot and body blood circulation, due to the increase in the amount of blood circulation, thereby regulating the endocrine glands secrete various hormones, such as thyroid hormone secreted by the thyroid, adrenal glands secrete adrenal hormones, etc., these hormones can promote metabolism .
3, eliminate fatigue. When the human body is fatigued, foot blood circulation, metabolic end products, calcium salts, lactic acid microcrystals and other substances are deposited first. When the function of an organ of a human body is abnormal or ill, due to the influence of pathological reflexes, the blood circulation of the foot is worsened, and deposition is more likely to occur. After a day of strenuous exercise, athletes have an average of 30 milligrams of lactic acid per kilogram of blood. After they have massaged their feet for 30 minutes, they will be tested for blood and will lose about 5 milligrams. After a period of foot bathing, blood will lose about 20 milligrams of lactic acid and recover. Blood levels of lactate are almost never felt when they feel tired. It can be seen that hot water foot massage is the simplest and most effective way to eliminate physical fatigue.
4, improve sleep. The feet are rich in nerve endings and capillaries, and the feet have mild and good stimulatory effects on nerves and capillaries. This warm stimulus stimulates reflection to the cerebral cortex and inhibits the cerebral cortex. It is excited sympathetic nerves that smoothly transition to parasympathetic nerves. After the parasympathetic nerve is excited, the person is in a quiet resting state, thereby improving sleep and eliminating insomnia.
5, health beauty, brain care. With foot massage, meridians and blood can be adjusted. At the same time, the blood vessels in the foot are expanded and the blood volume is increased, so that the blood flow of the head is accelerated, and oxygen and nutrients needed by the brain are supplemented in sufficient time in time.
