      The massage technique is as follows:
      Everyday morning, 20 minutes before bath, sit on a chair.
      Apply the oil over the entire ankle and feet.
      If possible, make a paste of garlic (25 grams), castor leaves (50 grams) and camphor (5-10 grams) – apply it over the heels. Leave it for 10 minutes. If all the three are not available, paste made of any two is good to use.
      Take a hot water tub and dip your legs in it for 3 minutes.

      Precaution: When you apply oil to feet, you tend to slip and fall. So, walk carefully and be slow.
