8 Interesting Facts About Getting a Foot Massage

Spending time at work involves assuming sitting and standing postures
for long periods and this most times results in muscle tension and
other stress-related symptoms.

If your job involves you walking or standing for long periods like
customer service staff and construction workers (to mention) a few
then you would definitely need regular foot massage.

It would amaze you that a brief 15 to 20 minutes foot massage can do the trick.

Your feet are one of the most sensitive parts of the body that seldom
get the required attention they deserve.

Even every day walking and standing can take their toll on your feet
as the feet and ankles bear a good part of your body weight.

With over 7000 nerves in the foot alone, getting a foot massage can be
extremely pleasurable and relaxing.

A foot massage will not only help relieve foot and ankle pain, but
will also relieve stress and tension in the entire body.

Here are other benefits of getting a foot massage:

1) A 20 minute session of foot massage and mobilization restores
balance and alignment especially in the elderly.

2) A 20 minute session of foot massage helps reduce the pain intensity
after a surgical operation.

3) Light pressure foot massage also helps to reduce lower limb oedema (swelling) in pregnancy.

4) A 10 minute session of daily foot massage for at least 2 weeks has
been shown to reduce the agitation in people suffering from dementia.

5) A good foot massage will improve blood circulation round the body.

6) Foot massage promotes good body posture.

7) Getting a foot massage will also help to boost your immune system.

8) Foot massages have also been known to improve concentration.

You may not always have the time to go to the spa to get one but you
can treat yourself to a "home made foot massage".

Although there's nothing like a massage given with human hands you can
still make use of a foot massager at home except you have a partner
that's willing to "volunteer".

There are tips here on how to give a foot massage.

Firstly, soak your feet in warm water after adding few drops of
lavender oil or any other essential oil.

There are two major types of foot massagers; the simple and the
therapeutic foot massager.

The therapeutic foot massager actually mimics reflexology.
Reflexology is a kind of massage that relieves tension and treats
illnesses by stimulating pressure points on the feet, hands and head.

All in all get a massager that's easy to use and try to read as much
reviews as possible.
There are mechanical foot massagers, water-based foot massagers, calf
and foot massagers et al.

Once you get a durable and effective foot massager you're guaranteed a first class "on the go" stress relieving therapy.

We always hear about physiotherapy being a "hot" profession and that physiotherapists are saught after all over the world and that gives us the confidence to go for international jobs. Interestingly, though, I have noticed that physiotherapists move around alot, and we're about ro find out if it's for "greener pastures" , inner fulfillment or just sheer restlessness. I know of physiotherpists that move from Australia to Canada, and others from Canada to Australia...the other day a colleague of mine told me about a physiotherapist that had just devided to leave Australia for Singapore, while he stays put in South Africa.

Getting Study Materials for the DHA, HAAD Physiotherapist Exam

The licensing exam for practicing physiotherapy in Dubai or Abu Dhabi is computer based and multi choice (mcq).
Getting past questions for this DHA, HAAD exam has become a very expensive venture with many websites offering sample questions at a cost.

The Dubai Health Authority has however made it clear that it doesn't sell or make available such past questions and that any one who encounters such should report to them.
So I won't be putting up any names of websites who claim to sell sample questions or offer subscriptions to those who want to rehearse the exam online.

If you want to know how to prepare for these exams or have an idea of the syllabus then you can do one of these two options:
1. Get in contact with a medical recruiting agency with experience.
2. Use the recommended textbooks to prepare for the exam.

I really don't see why you can't go for option 2.
Give yourself a month to go through the textbooks to refresh your memory... It's an mcq exam and pass …

Want to Migrate to Australia as Physiotherapist? Read this first.

If you are a physiotherapist interested in migrating to Australia, reading this first will be highly beneficial to you.

Yes physiotherapy is on the Australia immigration skilled occupation list, but my observation is that there are still very few going through their skill select process.

The Australian skill select process (where Canada got the inspiration for Express entry) is supposed to be a stress free process. It's simply a DIY (do it yourself) kind of thing; fill in your information, upload your English scores and you skills assessment and submit your application for immigration.

Twice every month there are selection rounds and successful applicants are invited to apply for a skilled migration visa.

But this is not actually the case for physiotherapists because you need a skills assessment.

Here are the requirements for applying for a skills assessment:

·         A qualification that is included in theApproved Programs of Study list

·         A Certificate of Substantial Equ…

Areas of Specialization in Physiotherapy

When it comes to talking about specialty areas in physiotherapy or what physiotherapy areas you'll like to specialize it should be based purely on your strengths and interests.
Most physiotherapists specialize in musculoskeletal or sports physiotherapy either for lack of better ideas or job prospects ( not that these are totally wrong reasons).
I think some things you should consider when deciding to specialize are -


What really are your interests? Would you rather work with the young or the elederly? I personally don't like seeing children in the hospital so paediatrics is definitely not my thing.What skills have you gathered over the years and which of your skills are you likely to harness? Have you seen yourself coming up with successful rehabilitation programs for patients that suffered from musculoskeletal injuries, for example, over and over again? Are there particular cases or conditions that your superiors or colleagues have associated you with because of your achievem…
