Plantar Fasciitis

My wife suffers from PLantar Fasciitis; can I massage the feet for her to relieve pain and loosen the plantar fascia - or will I make it worse?

Usually massage is helpful but works best when performed in conjunction with conventional treatments -- see Scott's Heel Pain Book for a discussion of that.
