Regular relaxation of the legs is invaluable for the body of any person, regardless of the level of his activity. The lack of load on the limbs can lead to stagnation of blood, and in the future to more serious health problems. Therefore, such relaxation is especially recommended for those who lead a sedentary lifestyle. Too much stress on the legs also provokes various ailments, so it will not hurt for active people to sometimes devote time to relaxing the limbs. If you periodically suffer from edema, burning and heaviness in your legs, then relaxation is exactly what will help you. Periodic relaxation sessions relax, remove tension, tone up blood flow. Moreover, leg relaxation is a good prevention of varicose veins and flat feet. In ancient times, this kind of relaxation was also practiced as a way to get rid of insomnia, since after the session the muscles completely relaxed, the tension subsided, and sleep returned to normal.
Technically, leg relaxation is carried out by influencing the main reflex points on the feet, toes and other areas of the limbs. Experts believe that such relaxation has a healing effect on the entire body. For example, by acting on certain points of the foot, you can get rid of back pain, and relaxation of the toes helps to relieve toothache and strengthen the gums. Such relaxation can be performed both in the salon and at home, but it is worth remembering some contraindications, such as fungus and various skin wounds. In order for relaxation to bring not only benefit, but also pleasure, you need to create a cozy and comfortable environment. For example, you need to take into account that during the relaxation of the first leg, the second leg may freeze, so you need to cover it with a blanket or towel. In relaxation salons, for the comfort of customers, special humidity and air temperature are maintained in order to minimize the likelihood that the customer will freeze. For the hands of the master to glide better on the skin, they usually use aromatic oils or lotions.
