Foot massage is called Padabhyanga. It is an important part ofAyurveda and has been used to treat various ailments. Feet connect us to the Earth energy via grounding. The feet also have many nerve endings which are connected to different organs of the body. Massage makes these nerve connections strong that improves the health and function of body organs. In context with Ayurveda, massage stimulates the marma (vital) points on legs and feet to release stagnant energy and this helps in insomnia, fatigue and cramps.
The bronze foot massager is made of pure bronze (free from lead). Bronze is an alloy mainly consists of copper around 85-95 percent and tin (15-5%). Bronze is harder than pure iron and does not corrode easily. It is lustrous, golden brown in color, lighter and a good conductor of heat.
The copper component of the bronze has anti-inflammatory properties that help in reducing inflammation, pain and arthritis. It is also involved in the formation of hemoglobin. Due to its high electrical conductivity bronze also works on the electrical system of body to balance and revitalize it.
Tin is considered useful in digestion, headaches and insomnia. It also has been used in cases of depression, moodiness and fatigue when other treatments have not worked.
The gentle friction caused by the massager tends to pull acidity (toxins) out of body tissues, which may be the reason for the oil turning black, when the massager is used with oil. It has a hand-carved polished wooden handle for firm grip and easy application.With moderate pressure and delicate strokes you can effectively massage your face, neck, back and feet or any other area.The massage stimulates the vital energy channels of the body that improves body’s own healing mechanism. All these properties of bronze capped wooden handle massagermake it better than any other metal based massager.
