Why the foot?
Foot massage has been documented in nearly all ancient cultures. In some Native American texts, it is said that for some illnesses instead of working directly on the affected area they would work on the relative point on the foot to gain access. One reason to use feet then is if it is too uncomfortable to massage directly on an affected area. Another reason for a foot massage is to treat the part of our body that takes the most beating. Every day the feet bear the weight of our entire body. Dysfunctions in the feet can affect the rest of our systems and a massage is a great way to prevent and restore overused feet.
