It goes without saying that a sedentary lifestyle can have negative impact on the body. Minimal physical activity (like sitting at your desk all day, and sofa at night), your muscles can become accustomed to not being used, and tighten up. This can impair circulation, leading to heart problems and high blood pressure. Well, good news, massage therapy won’t just soothe your feet, it’ll help to boost blood flow and get that circulation pumping. Rubbing feet helps for a healthy heart, honest.

As vital as it may be, the ‘feeling good’ effect of heading for a foot massage is only one perk, we know there’s a whole lot more. Here they are – your justification for a massage, if you like – four benefits of heading for a foot massage, aside from feeling really nice.
