Are you looking for something that will help your tired aching fee... Body: Does your spouse come home, after a hard day's work, tired and worn out from the hassles and struggles of earning a livimg each day? Well, today you can help him or her to make a miraculous recovery just in time for dinner. Surprise them with a foot massage. They don't have to get undressed. All they have to do is sit in their most comfortable chair, or if they prefer, thay can lie down. Either way, you can give them a stimulating and ultra-relaxing foot massage that will turn around their tiredness and rejuvenate them for your evening plans.First, you must prepare for this event by gathering the few simple items necessary. To start with, find a pan, preferably plastic, that is big enough to put their feet in. You'll also need a towel to dry off their feet when you finish giving them a soak. Next, get a lotion or hand cream that you and your spouse both like. I prefer to use a hand cream instead of oils because when the feet in question are soaked, their moisture would make it difficult for the oil to soak in properly. That's it! Gather these items together in preparation for the big event.When you are ready to begin, be sure that the water is warm enough, but not so hot that it is uncomfortable. Experiment with your own feet ahead of time to see what temperature is good for you. That temperature is probably good for your spouse, too. First, have them sit in a comfortable chair. Then, put their feet in the pan and let them soak for at least 3 to 5 minutes. If your partner chooses to sit in a chair, then get a hassock or some item large enough to put his or her feet on. If you will be doing this on the floor, then find a place to lie down for your partner and let them put their feet on your lap. Either way, you're ready to begin.If this is the first time for either or both of you, take the time to speak reassuringly to your partner. Tell them ahead of time what you intend to do and ask them to relax and enjoy what's coming. Remember that the feet are one of the most important parts of the body and need to be treated with respect. They are loaded with nerve endings that have an effect on the entire body. When you massage them, you are, in effect, massaging the entire body in microcosm. That being said, let's proceed.Pick up either foot to begin. I will assume that you are right-handed, so all my instructions will be for righthanders. If otherwise, then reverse the order to suit. For the purpose of brevity, I will also assume that you are using a hassock to hold up the feet and your partner is laid back in the chair and somewhat relaxed after the foot soak. Now take the foot with your left hand and point the knuckles of your right hand at the bottom of the foot. Begin rubbing your knuckles briskly, in small circles, against the sole of the foot. Don't skip any part of the sole from the toes to heel. After several passes, put the foot on the hassock and grab the foot, putting your fingers of both hands on top of the foot and using your thumbs, massage the soles of the foot with firm, circular pressure strokes. Once again, do the entire sole. After a minute or so, switch your hand position to use your thumbs
on the top of the foot. Start at the toes and gently work your thumbs all the way to the back of the foot. Keep your fingers on the sole with moderate pressure to prevent any tickling sensation. When you get to the ankle bone, use your fingers to circle the bump of bone several times. Rub both sides at the same time.The next step is to take the foot, once again, in your left hand. Use the first two knuckles of your right hand to rud the back of the heel area firmly, using small circular movements. Do it for about 30 seconds. Next, you may or may not need to move your position for the following technique. On the top of the foot, place your hand with the fingers at the ankle and slowly pull your hand toward the toes, following the tendons that go to the toes. Do them singly, one at a time, rubbing between the tendons. Once, firmly should be enough. Now it's time to gently pull each toe, starting with the big toe. Grasp it firmly and slowly pull toward you, twisting the toes carefully, one at a time. When that's done, once again, grab the foot with your left hand and place your fingers on the Achilles tendon at the back of the foot. Tweak it gently, but firmly a few times. Now, for the final step. Place your left hand on the bottom of the foot with the fingers at the heel. Place your right hand on top of the foot, fingers at the ankle bone. Pause for a moment to let the warmth of your hands sink in. Then slowly pull them toward you, ending with your fingers coming together over the toes. Do this at least three times.That's all there is, except for a few details. You may use the cream or lotion either before or after the massage, it's your preference. You may want to do both feet, one at a time, moving from one procedure to the next with each foot and repeating it with the other foot. Once again, it's a personal preference. And, finally, now that you have them all buttered up, ask them to do your feet! I guarantee that you will love it. After that, you may wish to skip dinner and go to bed early!
