This helps get everything including the vertebra themselves loosened up and moving freely again.
If that sounds good to you, you'll love the advanced techniques of this style.
The skilled foot of the barefoot therapist can create an awesome push-pull-pumping effect on the soft tissues around the vertebral disks that can reposition the nucleus pulposus ( a jelly like substance in side the spinal disk), moving back to it's central position, which in turn relieves spinal nerve irritations.
These irritations can be the root cause for muscle weakness, pain, numbness, and tingling in the arms, legs, or areas of the back and neck.
Barefoot massage is one of the best treatments for spinal deviations like scoliosis and hyperkyphosis, because it helps traction and decompress the entire vertebral column as well as deeply addressing tight paraspinal muscles that get pulled in unnatural ways from the exaggerated misalignment caused by either of these conditions.
Some other conditions of the spine that have benefitted from deep barefoot massage techniques are:
- Degenerative disk disease
- Herniated Disks/Bulging Disks
- Other Postural Problems
So if you've been curious about barefoot massage but it sounds too "out there" or painful, I suggest giving it a try. With all these benefits, It could be the exact massage style that you've been looking for.
Oh! and to ease your fear that it maybe painful to recieve, it's been described as "The deepest, most luxurious massage on the planet." So not only does it get in deep therapeutically, it also feels relaxing and luxurious too!
