How to beat cold feet or water retention with lower leg self-massage

Today, I’d like to introduce you to the second step of how to treat cold feet and water retention by yourself! Please see the first step here

In my experience, massage of the lower legs is very beneficial for those who suffer with cold feet and water retention.

 

The basic thing to know about massaging the legs is stroking in an upward direction.

If your main concern is water retention, you should start by “wringing” the ankles with a light touch first. This helps to release puffiness when pushing up underneath the knees. Massaging this area also helps to decongest sluggish lymphatic flow. 

If cold feet is your problem, you can massage each single toe and rub the inside of the medial tibia (inside the shin bones in other words), resulting in an increasing of blood circulation.
