Favourite Things Thursday - Feet Massage!!!


Here we are again at this great meme hosted by Blue. My Favourite Thing today is Feet Massage!!!!! I die, I kill, I steal for one! I walk too much sometimes or spend too long in bank lines due to my job, so I'm always bothering Rodrigo to make a feet massage session, pleeeeeease, after Lucas is asleep and I have time to relax - he became a master and even took som online lessons to learn how to improve his "skills"! It does makes wonders to me, it's like getting a whole body massage, my body and my mind to calm down, the pain I constantly feel in my back disappear and the world seems perfect...


When I was pregnant I wasn't allowed to take any drugs to relieve my migraines, and OF COURSE, I had two or three major ones during it. The only thing that would help me relaxing and not getting nuts was my hubby's massage. Sometimes I would even fall asleep in the middle of it! If you know what a huge migraine is, you can imagine my despair divided between stopping that horrible pain and not wanting to take anything that could hurt my baby. So there was Rodrigo and his magic hands.


It's well-known that our feet - and hands - reflect our entire organism - when a certain point is pressed, the correspondent body's area reacts. That's called reflexology. I totally believe in this, because I always feel the benefits when I get a massage in my feet.
So that's it for today! For more Favourite Things Thursday, visit Blue's page and - why not - join the fun!

I love a good foot massage, too. My daughter does foot reflexology on her own feet every night before bed!

Oh, there is nothing better than a good foot massage! Unless, maybe, a full body massage, lol!

I had a rare meeting with a special doctor out in BC and he told me that if you're fighting cancer to have your feet rubbed right before bed, it will boost your healing time 50%!

I've been rubbing my feet before bed ever since and it does reboot the system. It's like washing away all the pain from the day.

Thanks for the support Nydia, I really appreciate it. I'm letting go of my past life and dealing with the present. Illness has gotta go!

I'd love some reflexology, something I've wanted for years! We have a chiropodist locally who is also a reflexologist, but she's so busy it's hard to find a space. One day ....
