Why Tickling Feet Could Be Good For You

Posted 2 years ago in EDUCATION.

People all over the world love to be tickled, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’ve ever been tickled, you know that it makes you laugh, which releases endorphins in your brain to make you feel happy and good about yourself. But did you know that tickling can also help your health?

Why Tickling Feet Could Be Good For You

Foot Tickling Is Fun

It's fun, it's harmless and it makes you laugh. and that's not all! Recent research shows that tickling the feet also helps relieve stress, improves circulation and strengthens your immune system. Plus, according to a recent study from Carnegie Mellon University, researchers found that people with stronger immune systems were better able to recognize different types of laughter (they were more able to differentiate between real laughter and fake laughter).

It can be hard to associate foot tickling with any of these life-altering benefits—and we wouldn't recommend making it a habit—but there are a number of studies that suggest foot tickling is good for you. Just remember: don't go too far! If someone doesn't want their feet tickled, respect their wishes and back away.

Foot Tickling Relieves Stress

A scientific study shows that foot tickling can actually relieve stress. Dr. Peter Seng, who heads up a team of researchers at New Jersey's Montclair State University, says that it comes down to how feet are linked to our sense of self and security. That is also why we get happy feet when we hear music or see pictures that make us happy -- or even smell something we like, he says. It's all coming from emotion, Seng said in an interview with LiveScience.

There is [also] tactile contact with people you care about and people you trust. So next time you're feeling stressed out and having a hard time relaxing -- try getting someone to tickle your feet. Just don't ask your boss if he'll do it for you!

We Have More Sensitive Feet Than Other Body Parts

Tickling Feet can be good for you. Studies have shown that we have a heightened sense of touch in our feet than other parts of our body. It makes perfect sense given that most animals—including humans—use their feet for pretty much everything, from eating to sleeping to getting around.

The foot is also a particularly fine instrument, with more nerve endings per square inch than any other part of our body. As such, tickling your partner’s feet can result in some real giggles (and maybe a few screams). If you like foot play and getting tickled, it may be because your feet are so sensitive. Start paying more attention to your foot; spend time massaging them and see how it makes you feel.

How To Give Yourself A Foot Massage

If you can't get to a salon for a good foot massage, fear not: Self-massage can do wonders for your feet. Roll a tennis ball under each foot to stimulate nerves and release tension, or use a golf ball to dig into tight spots along your heel, arch and toes.

A golf ball is also perfect for rubbing over bunions and corns. Soak your feet in warm water before you massage them so they're more receptive to being touched. And don't forget about those toes! Give yourself an at-home pedicure by cutting your nails and filing down any rough spots. Remember: massaging every inch of your body is what's important here—not how fancy it looks!

The Best Ways To Foot Touch

By now you may have heard that foot touching can be a great way to boost your sex life – but what are some of the best ways to incorporate it into your orgasm? Well, if you ask us, there's no better way to spice up your sex life than by touching feet! In fact, we think everyone should tickle each other's feet at least once a day.

At one time only prostitutes allowed men to touch their feet, but today almost anyone will do it for free. If you have access to someone's feet, whether by massaging them at work or on a date - you should definitely try to tickle them in some way.
