Body: Some simple ways to alleviate the pain that comes with being on your feet are a nice foot bath, anything big enough to hold both feet and some water will do. If you use your teapot to heat the water just be mindful that it may take a few minutes for the water to get to a nice temperature. Adding Epsom Salt with maybe some lavender for relaxation or eucalyptus to soothe the muscles can make it a great Feet Retreat.The goal of a good foot massage is to help circulation, broad strokes are often best and can aid in keeping tickling away. Use of the thumb and thumb pad parallel or the knuckles along the foot is great. When you start to use the fingers instead, you may tickle and are more likely to cause some pain "digging in".Simple Foot Massage Strokes* Place each side of the ankle between the palms fairly loosely, then use a back and forth motion like making fire (just be gentle). This simple stroke often gets a great response from my massage clients.* Run the knuckles along the bottom of the foot, it's better to start gently and add pressure than it is to dig in and cause a painful reaction.* Take each toe between the thumb and index finger and rub as though your cleaning a coin. Again, care is better than strength here.* Always check in and take note of facial expressions and breathing. Giving a good foot massage is about the receiver, not about the giver. Be kind with mistakes(this goes for both of you), you won't be expert the first time, when giving massage to someone you love the effort is what's important. J.
