Your feet are among the easiest parts of your body to self-massage, and it’s something you can do wherever you happen to be. If you are sitting, simply rest one foot on the opposite thigh. If you prefer to lie down, keep one leg bent up, and rest your other foot on your raised thigh. Give one foot a complete massage first, then transfer to the other one.
A great way to start a foot massage is to soak your feet in a bowl of warm, scented water.
Fill a large bowl with warm water and add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil (lavender and peppermint are excellent). Put your feet in and luxuriate for as long as you like before starting the foot massage.

1: Rest the sole of your right foot on your left
knee and sandwich your foot between your hands, with your fingers facing forwards. Rub your hands backwards and forwards along your foot to warm the whole area.
2: Support the heel of your right foot with your
left hand and clasp the toes with your right hand. Energetically squeeze, extend, and flex your toes to increase their flexibility.
3: Still supporting your right foot with your
left hand, massage your toes with your right hand by squeezing, twisting, and rolling each one in turn with your fingers.
4: Place one thumb on top of the other, using your fingers to support your foot, and make deep, circular thumb pressures over the sole of your foot. Stroke the area. Repeat the whole sequence (steps 1-4) on your left foot.
