Relieving Tired, Heavy Legs

Nearly 70% of women are affected by heavy, tired legs. Poor circulation and heredity conditions can exacerbate symptoms.

However, it is possible to reduce the discomfort by following some simple steps.

Soothing Tired, Heavy Legs

One way to relieve this sensation is by placing your legs in cool or cold water twice a day. Doing so improves your blood circulation, which can lead to the disappearance of your symptoms.

Another circulation-improving technique is massage. Massage your legs, starting from the ankle and working your way to the top of your thigh.

You can also try to keep your legs elevated to allow the gathered blood in your legs to return toward your heart. In the future, you can also avoid sitting or standing positions for prolonged periods, as this can affect blood flow in your legs.

Consuming herbal teas or taking capsules such as red vine, holly, blueberry, or blackcurrants are well known for their promotion of blood circulation.

If symptoms persist, worsen, or cause further pain or edema, you should consult a doctor.
