Got problems sleeping early? There’s an easy and simple solution to that. All you have to do is massage your feet. You don’t need to take a lot of tranquilizers or drown yourself in alcohol just to be able to doze off, when you can easily grab hold of your feet and give it a five minute rubdown to get, yes, sleepy.

Even before advanced technology in medicine became a necessity for the human population, alternative medicine in the form of reflexology has been around for hundreds of years. Getting a massage back then was more than just relieving aches, pains and stress from work. It was the method by which people were able to heal themselves. Back then applying pressure to your hands and feet was the best way to get oneself feel better.

When you go to a spa to get a massage and you feel relaxed, it is because you increase the blood flow to different parts of your body which is essential to actually make you feel calm. One of the best parts of your body to massage is your feet because all internal organs can be tapped depending on which part of your foot you apply pressure to.

So before you think of spending quite a large sum of money on medicine, you just might want to massage your feet. You can do this even while you’re watching TV or reading a book. It’s all just a matter of applying the right amount of pressure on a certain part of your foot when you want to target a specific organ or part of your body to heal.

There’s a pressure point for each internal organ or muscle group that’s located on your feet and all you have to do is give it the massage it needs. Check out this video to learn how to massage your own feet.
