The Easiest Way To Learn To Massage Feet

While reflexology socks may not give you the feeling of just getting a massage from a talented Reflexologist that spent years mastering their craft, reflexology socks can allow almost anyone give a great foot massage. They are great tools to give yourself a massage or to give one to someone else one. They really make the process of learning foot reflexology that much easier and relaxing.

This page is about foot reflexology socks and how to use them. I included videos because sometimes it's a lot easier to practice on yourself alongside the video while using the socks to learn the steps, then trying to use them while reading from the computer.

Tips For Using Reflexology Socks Correctly

  1. Always start with the left foot and end with the right foot.
  2. Use thumbs and fingers to massage and apply pressure to the zone you wish to effect.
  3. Pressure should be firm but must not cause pain or extreme discomfort.
  4. You can use a reflexology tool, such as a massage ball to apply pressure if you do not wish to use hands.

Foot Reflexology Socks

Reflexology socks come in many styles and some are aimed toward different types of pleasures. There are some reflexology socks designed to help someone with a specific health problem or just to get into a better mood. While some may ague the legitimacy of reflexology being a cure or even so much as a therapy, most do not ague that it feels great. And reflexology socks can help someone know where to rub or not to rub.

      I've had reflexology done by a professional, I liked it but it was kind of expensive. These reflexology socks are a great substitute, and they're quite affordable. Thanks for the info! Blessed.
