Did you know that scientific research supports the benefits of foot massage? 

The benefits from foot massage can have a positive impact on your clients physical and mental health.

Here are 4 benefits your massage clients will receive from a foot massage:

1. Improved circulation

A 10-20 minute massage greatly improves circulation in the lower extremities, which is especially important for clients who suffer from diabetes.

2. Reduces anxiety & depression

Reflexology (a type of foot massage) has been shown to reduce anxiety in cancer patients and can serve as an effective way of dealing with depression and anxiety.

3. Helps relieve headaches and migraines

A study revealed people suffering from headaches and migraines showed great improvement after receiving reflexology.

4. Lowers blood pressure

A study conducted on healthcare workers showed a 10-minute foot massage session up to three times a week resulted in improved mood, less anxiety and lower blood pressure.
