sugar land tx podiatrist foot massage tipsOur Sugar Land, TX, podiatrist knows that people spend a lot of time on their feet. Perhaps today you stood too long, walked too much, or crammed your feet into improperly fitted shoes. Or maybe you just had a particularly challenging workout. Of course, a professional foot massage would be the perfect ending to your long day, but most of us don’t have the time or the budget for luxurious foot treatments. Read more for some “DIY” tips for taking care of your tired and achy feet from our podiatrist at Foot & Ankle Associates in Sugar Land.

Our Sugar Land, TX, Podiatrist Shares How to Treat Your Feet with Massage

A self-administered foot massage can still soothe and relieve discomfort, with some helpful pointers to try on your own. Your feet will thank you!

Tip #1 – Start with a Soak

Our Sugar Land, TX, podiatrist suggests you get started by first soaking your feet in warm water, which can help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints. You might consider adding a product – such as Epsom salt – to your warm water bath, to help reduce inflammation.

Tip #2 – Select the Right Lotion

Try adding a few drops of peppermint oil to your lotion, suggests our Sugar Land podiatrist. Peppermint essential oil has a therapeutic effect, initially making your skin feel warm – followed by a cool, refreshed sensation when it is exposed to air.

Tip #3 – Put Your Best Foot Forward

Our podiatrist in Sugar Land, TX, says the best way to administer a DIY foot massage is to sit in a chair with one leg extended out, bringing the other foot in to rest on your lap. Thoroughly work in the lotion by applying firm pressure with your thumbs, paying particular attention to your foot’s arch. After all, this is the part of your foot that bears most of the force and trauma from your busy, active daily routine.
