More About foot massage and its benefits.
Foot massage or reflexology has been practised in China since the 4th century BC. Then, during the time of Song Dynasty, (960 AD -1279 AD), an acupuncturist named Wang Wei, held that every organ in the body is linked to a specific reflex point on the feet. He said the precise and skillful massage of these points can touch the vital functions, do away with toxins, improve blood circulation and calm nerves. The practice was banned during the Cultural Revolution 30 years ago. But in the recent years, foot-massage parlours have mushroomed throughout Beijing again. It has now grown into an industry in China! Foot care is often neglected by many people. Frequently being massaged helps to enhances your health. Foot massage improves the immune system and keeps the body's natural balance. Beides the health-care method, foot reflexology also can at least cure minor ailments, ease head and stomach discomforts. Foot reflexology in the West has gone through various phases of acceptance from the traditional medical community. While once regarded as superstition by Western medicine community, foot massage or reflexology is now being looked at in a more favorable way by both the medical community and the general public.
