Self-Massage for the Calf and Lower Leg

All you basketball players, tennis players, runners, cyclists, and skaters had better bookmark this one. I’ve put together a quick self-massage routine for the lower leg that’s great for all kinds of athletes, and also people who are on their feet all day. Teachers, nurses, (ahem) massage therapists, doctors and anyone standing for long portions of the day will love how this makes your legs feet. And, if you’re in heels all day, or have to wear heels on a concrete floor (ouch), this can do wonders for your tired and aching feet and legs.

There is a critical contraindication: Do not use these techniques if you have DVT (deep vein thrombosis, blood clot) or have been diagnosed with vericose veins.

As always, check out the other videos on my site if you’d like to learn some self massage or couples massage tips.  Anyone looking for a Louisville massage can book at my website:
