According to massage therapist Michelle K. Ebbin, author of Hands On Feet: The System That Puts Reflexology At Your Fingertips (Running Press), a simple foot massage can help soothe aches all over your body.
Thats because the foot is connected to the rest of the body by 7,000 nerves that can be manipulated in certain ways.
For instance, massaging right below the baby toe can ease tension in your shoulders, while pressing on the flesh behind the big toe sends reflexes to the brain that help stop headaches.
Messaging the ball of your foot affects your thyroid and eases symptoms of PMS while boosting your sex drive.
Ebbin says an affective reflexology foot massage can last anywhere between 20 seconds and 30 minutes, but hitting the right spot could have couples spending hours in the bedroom.
The foot is also linked to erogenous zones, so touching the hollows beneath the ankle bones spark sensations in both the penis and vagina.
