Foot massages can be nice if you've been on your feet all day, but I definitely prefer a good neck, shoulder and back massage.

What Makes A Good Foot Massage?

I've never had anybody give me a foot massage (apart from at spas) but when I worked as a shop assistant I would occasionally get home and give myself a quick foot massage and pedicure. They can be particularly relaxing and soothing in the summer months.

If you want to give a girl a thorough foot massage, here's what I'd suggest:

  • Ask her if she'd like one, first! She might prefer a back rub.
  • Soak her feet in cool water (not so cold that her toes go numb) for about five minutes. If it's winter, warm water will be fine.
  • You can use some exfoliating foot scrub if you want to.
  • Dry her feet with a towel. Be gentle but firm.
  • Decide what oil or lotion you're going to massage her feet with.  I really like the peppermint foot lotion they sell in The Body Shop.
  • Use your thumbs to massage the bottom of her feet, paying particular attention to the inside of the foot and the arch.
  • Massage the ankles a bit, too.
It's best to give somebody a foot massage at a time when they can just lie down and relax  afterwards — if you've had massage oil or lotion rubbed into your feet, you don't want to be walking around for at least an hour. Carpet fluff will stick to your feet if you do!
