1. FOOT MASSAGE ONE: REDUCE PRESSURE IN YOUR FEET
This massage can help bring down any intense pressures in your feet. Repeat as necessary.
2. FOOT MASSAGE TWO: PULL WITH A STRAP
This foot massage is helpful for those who suffer from plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and midfoot).
Get a strap, belt, or dog leash. Be seated on the floor and strap your foot. Pull for 30 seconds and rest for about 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times.
3. FOOT MASSAGE THREE: ROLL WITH A BALL MASSAGE
This foot massage relieves painful muscles.
Choose a ball that fits under your feet. You can also go for lacrosse balls, which are made especially for decreasing muscle pain.
Stand, hold on to something, and place a ball under the arches of your feet. Apply pressure on the ball. Roll it up and down your feet, and then sideways in circles. Do this technique for about a minute.
4. FOOT MASSAGE FOUR: SQUEEZE YOUR SOLES
This massage relieves the soles of your feet.
Press on the ball of your foot and heel, and repeat as necessary. You can also lie down and ask someone to squeeze your feet.
5. FOOT MASSAGE FIVE: TOE MASSAGE
This foot massage gives your toes a break from tension and cramps.
Pull each of your toes smoothly. Repeat that step for each toe. You can also ask someone to do this massage for you.
