Grab Your Foot When You Feel Stressed

The next time a bad day (or week, or month) has you on the verge of a mini meltdown, undo the anxious knots by getting to know your feet.

Yep, giving yourself a quick foot massage can have almost the same stress-lowering benefit as a full-body rubdown, according to Roberta Lee, MD, author of The SuperStress Solution. Here’s her easy 10-step tootsie rub.

Step-by-Step Foot Destressor
Lee’s do-it-yourself foot massage is based on the principles of ayurvedic reflexology.

  1.  Wash your feet with warm soap and water, then wipe them dry. 
  2. Apply a small amount of sesame seed or almond massage oil mixed with lavender essential oils.
  3. Start rubbing at the base of your little toe.
  4. Move over to the base of the next toe and continue rubbing.
  5. Apply slight pressure on the flesh between your little toe and the next toe over.
  6. Now move to your middle toe.
  7. Massage, stretch, and pull your middle toe in a circular motion, then do the same with your other toes.
  8. With your fingertips or the palms of your hands, gently apply pressure to both sides of your heel just below the ankle, and then rub around your ankle clockwise to boost energy and circulation.
  9. Finally, knead and squeeze your calf muscle to release tension.
  10. Repeat on the second foot.

Want to get closer to your honey?  Try this at home on your partner.  We are not responsible for where this may lead.


Having a backup stress-reduction technique on hand when you can’t otherwise destress can make your Real Age 6 years younger.

Advantages of Home-Based Reflexology Practice

Many Reflexologists appreciate working in a home office clinic.  This allows for flexibility in working hours especially if you’re raising children in your home.  You can use your time productively, scheduling home duties and work duties around each other.  And, hey the commute well what can I say – it’s short.

When working away from home you still have family demands which often conflict with each other, the negative effects may include psychological distress, physiological concerns, decreased work performance and decreased satisfaction.  On the other hand working home-based makes it a whole lot easier to juggle home and personal life with your business life.

And, finally the money issue.  Yes, you can keep more of the money you make, spend less money on travelling costs to and from a commercial based clinic, pay rent to yourself as the Landlord, and even write-off parts of your home costs against taxes.  This financial flexibility allows you room for special fees and promotions yet still allowing yourself to make a good income – clients love it too, so it is a win-win situation.

On a last note you can put your own flair into decorating your clinical space.  Just be aware that more neutral than flamboyant may keep clients coming back and your stress levels lower.
