Once you have reached the ankle/wrist follow the same line back to the fingers. Make sure you apply lighter pressure towards the fingers than the wrist. Repeat this 5 times. For the palm, use your thumb to rub your palm in a circular motion. Keep moving your massaging thumb around in a circle adding a little pressure continue on other hand. For Pedicure apply the same massage technique on feet.
