Podiatry and the Benefits of Massage

Podiatry and the Benefits of Massage - Academy Massage - Massage Therapist WinnipegIs there anything more relaxing... or invigorating as a foot massage? Yet overall when we consider the health of our bodies, our feet are usually the most ignored. Without proper foot care, our mobility would be severely hindered and even simple standing could become a chore. Usually, we don't address these issues until a problem occurs.

At Academy Massage, the proper care of your feet is every bit as important as treating muscle and joint problems that may affect other parts of the body. What is interesting is that scientific evidence has proven benefits of massage beyond relieving foot pain and discomfort. These include relieving stress and fatigue, reducing blood pressure, lessening the severity of migraine headaches, aiding with depression, and helping to alleviate symptoms of menopause and PMS in women. As well, regular foot massage is believed to improve symptoms in people with multiple sclerosis.

Massage has long been used to effectively aid healing, improve circulation, reduce pain, decrease swelling, increase range of motion, extend endurance, normalize gait, nourish skin and break up scar tissue. Combined, these benefits bring about improved posture, balance and confidence. In addition, patients dealing with plantar fasciitis — the most common cause of heel pain — can find relief through an inexpensive, non-invasive and painless treatment in place of physical therapy through massage.

To keep yourself in step and balance Academy Massage invites you to schedule an appointment with one of our qualified therapists to experience the total effect of a pampering and healthful foot massage.
