How does massaging help those little piggies?
Massaging our feet can be really beneficial; especially after a long day of being on your feet, but not only does it helps us to relax, there are other reasons to why treating your feet to a penetrative massage now and then can really help you out:
A Shiatsu foot massage helps to improve circulation which is vital as the majority of people’s lives are spent sat down, whether it’s travelling in the car or sitting at the desk; we have forgotten the importance of using our muscles on a regular basis. Because of this, our muscles in our feet often become tight and uncomfortable due to lack of exercise and circulation. A 10-20 minute massage can greatly improve circulation which is extremely beneficial for those who suffer from diabetes.
Plantar fasciitis is a common condition, often undiagnosed that can be eased by indulging in a deep penetrative massage and applying strong pressure to the arch. Plantar fasciitis is caused by excessive stretching of the plantar fascia; the ligament that is attached to the heel bone, stretches and spreads out to attach at the base of the toes, acting like a bowstring on the bottom of the foot to aid in maintaining the arch. When the plantar fascia is strained it can be extremely painful to stand or walk. Plantar fasciitis is more common in middle age people who are on their feet a lot and can be caused from a number of things: long periods of exercising, especially on hard surfaces, wearing shoes that do not fit you properly or are worn out, if you are overweight, if your feet roll inward when you walk, have high arches or flat feet or if you have tight calf muscles. Improved blood circulation leads to lower blood pressure; studies have proven that a 10 minute foot massage up to three times a week lowers blood pressure along with reducing anxiety and an overall improved mood. Along with falling into a state of relaxation and serenity; studies have shown that massaging can go even beyond relaxation and reduce the effects of depression. Not only that, a massage session of 20 minutes can also aid people who suffer from migraines and headaches.
Regular foot massages can even relieve symptoms of PMS and menopause; helping to reduce feelings of sadness and depression during these times as well as giving you a reason to take some time to yourself.
Edema usually occurs in pregnant women and most commonly in their last trimester; this is when the small blood vessels in your foot become “leaky” and release fluid, causing the nearby tissue to swell. Tackling this with a daily massage can reduce the swelling and the pain teamed with a sufficient amount of rest and a healthy diet and you’ve got a winning formula.
Why it’s important to look after your tootsies
It’s vital that you look after your feet; they take the whole weight of your body day in and day out, so naturally your feet can develop problems and discomfort. If you regularly feel discomfort and pain in your feet, it can affect the way you walk which can then develop pain into your knees, hips and back. Here are some ways to keep your feet in tip-top condition:
Foot hygiene – You must wash and dry your feet thoroughly every night, leaving dirt on your skin can become irritated and in some case infected. Wash your feet before you go to bed with soap and water and in particular in between your toes. Ensure that you dry your feet thoroughly, if this is ignored, germs can germinate which is how Athlete’s foot is formed. Remove any hard skin that has formed on your foot, but be sure to remove it gently and regularly. It is also vital that when trimming your toe nails that you trim them straight across and never at an angle; cutting straight across with avoid ingrown toenails.
The perfect shoe – if you have to wear smart or high heeled shoes for work, it’s crucial that they are comfortable. It’s suggested that you wear convenient shoes when travelling to and from work and wear your smart shoes only in the office. It’s vital that you always wear the appropriate shoes for the right job and you limit yourself to wearing pointed or high heeled shoes for special occasions, and if you’re one of those who love wearing heels all the live long day, it’s advised that you vary the size of the heel height to avoid aches and pains.
And last but not most definitely not least, MASSAGE! Using the Beurer FM60 Shiatsu Foot Massager is extremely beneficial in ensuring that your feet are healthy; avoiding all those aches and pains. The FM60 should be used on a regular basis, especially after exercising or being on your feet all day (yes, this includes if you’re “just” standing up all day!). Don’t neglect your tootsies any longer, they never neglect you.
