Massage therapists and their clients are familiar with the word “stress” as it relates to the modern lifestyle. But did you know that as a mind-body term, it did not exist until the 1930s? Read about how stress and the use of massage therapy to relieve it have grown together for more than 75 years.
Our feet are what connect us to the earth on which we stand. They give us a sense of stability and provide us with mobility, helping to propel us forward and backward in space. Being able to walk is a major sign of growing as an individual. Once children begin to walk they no longer need to be carried by a parent and can begin to explore the world around them on their own. Getting a regular foot massage can help in maintaining good health and give attention to an often neglected part of the body.
