To begin, the human body has approximately 605 muscles. I say approximate because scientists have never been able to determine the exact amount due to variations in a human’s body. Your muscles keep your blood flowing. Muscles turn energy into motion. Without muscles, it would be impossible to do anything. For example: To express your spoken words we use muscles in our larynx, tongue and mouth for you to run, dance, or fight we use the skeletal muscles.
Improves blood circulation:
Due to every individuals lifestyle, many people don’t use their feet muscles properly, thus impeding good blood flow. Also, tight, pointed shoes–especially high heels hinder circulation. A regular foot and leg massage helps in transporting oxygen to the body’s cells, which is essential for overall health.
Helps in relaxation:
After a tiring and stressful week, a foot and leg massage soothes and helps you to relax, particularly after a long week of standing and walking around, as the feet and legs tend to swell up.With the massage it can improve feelings of general well-being.
Makes feet healthier:
One easy way to help keep your feet and legs healthy and free from foot problems is a regular foot and leg massage. It helps stimulate the muscles around your feet and legs, lessens stiffness, water retention and even reduces pain in the ankles or the heels.
