Our legs and feet bear the weight of our entire body. With obesity on the rise, our legs are put under more and more strain each day.
Our sedentary lifestyles ensure that our muscles are not exercised or stretched. Gradually over a period of time, the muscles become weaker and weaker. With increasing weight, and decreasing muscular strength it is a small wonder that leg ache has become such a common phenomenon.
One of the best ways of relieving leg pain is by getting a leg massage. A leg massage will allow the leg muscles to relax and heal. This is especially important after exercise or in jobs that involve a lot of standing or walking. Massage warms and stretches the contracted muscles and allows them to relax, thereby easing and preventing further pain. Leg massage also stimulates the blood supply to the muscles and makes them strong. It can also help prevent the formation of cellulite on the thighs.
During a typical massage session, we will make you lie down on a flat surface such as a massage table. If oil is being used to aid the massage process, the therapist will rub some massage oil between his or her palms and then gently apply oil on both the legs from the ankles to the hips, using long, gentle, circular strokes.
