5 Benefits Of A Foot Spa That You Might Not Know

August 5, 2019 22 comments

Placing your feet in a tub of warm water, even without anything extra in it, is a nice way to relax after a long day. A foot spa soothes your muscles, hydrates your skin, and can relieve aches and pains due to standing for hours or walking in uncomfortable shoes. Did you know your feet are home to 26 bones, 20+ muscles and 120 ligaments?

And while a little rough skin helps protect our feet, if you’re prone to developing thick calluses, softening them in a soak makes them easier to exfoliate – precisely the reason why most pedicures begin by submerging your feet into warm water. Generally, a foot spa relieves your feet from the tension of day-to-day pressure and revitalises you. The wonderful thing about a foot spa is it brings out a myriad of benefits to your health, mind, and lifestyle.

This is the reason why foot spas have been used by many cultures for centuries to promote a person’s overall well-being. They have been practiced as an alternative medicine to relieve pain and anxiety and used as a complementary method to medicinal practices.

Relaxation

In each of our feet is an important point called the solar plexus point which basically contains all your stress. When the solar plexus reflex point is pressed upon, the stress stored within it is released, alleviating anxiety and renewing the body.

Circulation

When your feet are under stress, the circulation of your blood tends to be impeded. A foot spa releases the tension formed around the tight muscles and tendons. This allows blood to circulate smoothly to your organs and brain. In addition to transporting oxygen and nutrition to your body cells, the blood also cleanses toxins from your body.

Balance

Balance is when all your body parts are working together in harmony. When the whole body is relaxed, you don’t feel the anxiety, tension and other harmful effects of stress on the body. As such, the chances of getting diseases associated with stress are reduced.

Can Alleviate Headaches, PMS & Menopause Symptoms 

Many people find that headaches are alleviated when the brain senses happy hormones. Happy hormones are usually brought about by heightened positive emotions, peak of exercise, sex, and reflexology treatments. There are some reports that patients suffering from headaches are noted to reduce the symptoms of migraine after several sessions of reflexology treatments per week. A foot spa coupled with reflexology treatments can also address symptoms seen during PMS periods such as feelings of irritability, fatigue, mood swings, sadness and unhappiness.

Increased Energy

Every foot spa should ideally be accompanied by a foot massage. Blockages found in tight muscles contain the energy that should be flowing throughout your body. Through a reflexology foot massage, the foot is rubbed such that the blockages are released and energy is brought back through the different parts of the body freely.

Our favourite home foot spa is the Hangsun Foot Spa & Massager. The Hangsun FM180 Foot Spa will help to relax your foot muscles with the warm and invigorating bubble foot spa in the comfort of your own home.
