At the end of the day, there is no better way to treat yourself or a loved one than with a good old-fashioned foot rub. We all know that a short foot massage every now and then can really help us relax, particularly after a long day of standing up and walking around, when our feet tend to swell up.
But some of us aren’t quite sure how to give an effective and beneficial foot rub.
If you are ready to have some fun AND brush up on your skills, Black Mountain Bodyworks Day Spa is offering fun classes this month on the basics of foot massage and reflexology. Bring a partner or come solo and enjoy learning some massage tips and tricks so you can work like a pro!
There are a several different massage techniques that all promise certain health benefits. Traditional therapeutic techniques focus on relaxing the muscles and joints; acupressure seeks to improve general health and energy flow by acting upon specific pressure points; aromatherapy uses scented oils and relaxing music to add an additional element of relaxation by acting upon multiple senses; and reflexology seeks to improve internal organ function by massaging specific areas of the foot.
The 90-minute class is available:
Wednesday, January 14 at 7pm or Saturday, January 17 at 11am.
Taught by a licensed massage therapist, the cost of the class is $25 per person, including materials.
