This isn’t exactly an instructional video, and not all of the steps for giving yourself a foot rub are actually included here.
But you’ll be able to get a pretty good idea of how easy it is to give your achy feet some relief.
Instructions for giving yourself a foot massage follow…
How To Do A Foot Massage
According to massage therapist Ann Marie Cominsky, here’s how to give yourself a foot rub:
1. Sit in a comfy chair and coat right foot with lotion. Lay foot on your left knee.
2. Press right thumb into center of heel and release. Work your thumb down the length of foot, pressing and releasing, until you reach your toes. Repeat down the sides of your foot; pay attention to the inner arch, with its many pressure points.
3. Next, take hold of your big toe and rotate it a few times in each direction. Repeat with your other toes.
4. To finish, rotate your ankle a few times in each direction.
5. Repeat with left foot.

Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!… Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet — and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
