Wintertime is upon us, and as cooler temperatures set into our bodies, 'tis the season for achy muscles, stiff joints, and sore feet. Whether spending more time standing in line for holiday savings, working long retail hours, or simply enjoying outdoor winter recreation, this season can be particularly hard on our bodies. That's why it is a great time of year to give yourself a little extra care, starting with your body's hardest working support – your feet.
You can take your foot massage one step further by paying attention to reflexology pressure points while massaging your feet. Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure or stroking specific areas of the feet and hands to stimulate the proper functioning of individual organs and body systems. These therapies existed in ancient Chinese and Egyptian civilizations, but the practice wasn't introduced to the United States until 1913 by ear, nose, and throat specialist William F. Fitzgerald. Since then, reflexology has shown very promising results within the medical community and is often a favorite healing tool for massage therapists and other body workers.
