Self Hand and Foot Massage
Reflexology is a system of massage and acupressure treatment where specific points on the hands and feet are used to improve the health and functioning of the entire body. It is possible to benefit from this practice even without a through understanding of reflexology charts. A basic massage oil or hand lotion can be used to gently rub all of your hands and/or feet, it can be helpful to add peppermint essential oil as well. The peppermint will help increase circulation to your extremities. Start by rubbing fingers on the hands or toes on the feet respectively  then continue to rub your palms and/or the soles of your feet, including the back of your hand and/or tops of your feet, there are some very useful points there as well.

Pay attention to any tender spots you find so that you can focus more on these areas. You will soon discover which places feel the best and which ones need more attention. A daily practice of Hand and Foot massage can relieve tension we accumulate in these areas from working and walking around all day, stuffing our feet in uncomfortable shoes all day and even more importantly it can  affect and improve the function of our entire body as well.
