A massage is a practice that involves using the hands, mechanical aids or other means to rub and apply pressure to key points on the body. Massage can be done for a variety of reasons, including to promote relaxation and wellbeing, to help with pain or injuries and for sexual pleasure. There are many different types of massage techniques that are practiced all around the world. A foot massage can positively affect the more than 7,000 nerves in each human foot, creating a pleasurable, relaxing feeling in the feet and possibly the whole body. Foot massages can also help relieve pain associated with disorders like bunions, plantar fasciitis and hammertoes.
