Getting Some Relief From Poor Blood Circulation in Legs
- Walking in the Sea: this is one of the most enjoyable and cheapest (once you made the trip to the beach!) to relieve poor blood circulation in legs. Get in the water to about the middle of the upper thighs and take a 30 minute walk in the sea or ocean (if the beach is short, walk back and forth if needed). Both the cold salted water and the exercise are excellent remedies to promote good blood circulation in legs. The walking in the water will also tone up your leg muscles — a plus for beautiful legs!
- Taking an Ice Cold Foot Bath: Simply fill up a bassin with cold water and add a handful of ice cubes. Soak you feet and massage you ankle with the cold water. You can also massage your legs (from the ankle up to the knee) in rotating motion with the cold water. Stay in the water until the water warms up. It is a bit hard at the beginning but worth the initial cold sensation — your legs feel so light afterwards!
- Swimming: this is another most enjoyable way to improve poor blood circulation. If you are near the ocean or the sea, take a dip — sea water is so therapeutic both for the soul and body. But if not, opt for a cold swimming pool (skip the hot tub!) or sign up for aqua gym in your area — such fun!
- Leg Massage with Essential Oil: mix 4 drops of rosemary pure essential oil in about 3/4 cups of olive oil and massage your leg on rotating motions starting at your ankle and moving up to your knee. This should be done in the morning rather than at night as rosemary can be too stimulating in the evening.
- End your Shower with Cold Water: as discussed in the article “Tips: A Morning Routine that Will Put Sunshine in Your Day”, taking a cold shower helps blood circulation. To improve poor blood circulation in legs, you should focus on the legs. Using your shower head (if possible with a medium pressure jet — not too soft but not too strong either), start going up each leg, one at a time, with the cold jet from the ankle towards to upper thigh. Repeat as needed. Enjoy!
