Foot massage, also known as reflexology, is an ancient method of healing that owes its popularity to its effectiveness. There are more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet, and by stimulating them, various positive effects can be achieved in the guest's health.

WHAT EXACTLY A FOOT MASSAGE IS?
Foot massage is an almost 6,000-year-old remedy that was born around the same time as acupuncture. The point is that all the body's organs are connected through energy channels to so-called "trigger points" that cover the entire foot. Excessive sensitivity or lumpiness of the reflex points indicates a disorder in the given area.
During the foot massage, we use various techniques to stimulate the reflex zones, which can be used to beneficially influence the organs connected to them. As a result of improper lifestyle and inadequate nutrition, waste material is deposited in these points. Massaging the reflex zones improves the body's metabolism and blood circulation, and accelerates the removal of deposits from the body. A foot massage not only improves your body condition, but also provides a pleasant feeling of well-being.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN MOVEMENTS DURING THE TREATMENT?
During the foot massage service, tired lower limbs are refreshed with various techniques. For the treatment, the therapist treats the legs and soles of the guest with vibrating, rubbing and kneading movements - the foot massage also includes the sole massage. The most frequently used techniques are:
Effleurage: French word meaning "to touch lightly". The foot massage begins and ends with this sequence of movements. The foot masseur takes the guest's foot between his two palms and smoothes it up and down along its entire length.
Knuckles: the therapist presses his fisted hand into the client's sole and then turns it. He then leads the movement all the way from the heels to the toes.
Finger circling: placing both thumbs on the client's feet, the masseuse moves along the lower limb with circular movements.
Ankle circling: a two-finger technique during which the specialist massages both the outside and the inside of the foot in a circular motion at the same time.
Foot rotation: by holding the toes and the heel with both hands, the masseuse rotates the foot in a clockwise direction. The sequence of movements is repeated several times in both directions.
Extension: the therapist places the thumbs and palms of the hands on the upper segment of the client's foot in such a way that the fingers cover the entire sole. The thumbs are then guided from the top all the way to the edge of the foot, and then return to the starting point.
Toe rotation: the masseuse holds the toes between the forefinger and thumb, then gently rotates them in a clockwise direction and then in the opposite direction.
Pulling and pushing: the specialist grasps the outer and inner side of the foot with both hands and begins to pull in one direction with one and push with the other.
