‘On your feet all day? Then you owe your feet a good massage’. I’m sure you have heard this line or a variation of it so many times, but it is actually true. It aptly conveys how much our feet suffer daily. It bears the weight of our body, it moves us around, we dance with it, play ball etc. and so many things! So, our feet deserve some pampering.
For some, one of the favorite pastimes is to go for a foot massage at the salon or get their partner to massage the feet with his/her hands after a long and stressful day.
However, some of you may not have the time or the energy to spend on a salon or even have someone willing to do it for us. Fortunately, with a Medi-Rub Foot Massager, all you get to do is plug it in, put your feet on and just relax.
But, what we really mean by a foot massage?
What is a Foot Massage?
Our foot is a masterpiece. It is capable of handling tons of force plus our weight in motion.
The foot comprises 26 bones, 42 muscles, 33 joints and no less than 50 ligaments and tendons. Imagine that! We haven’t even talked about the many hundreds of sweat glands and nerves it also contains.
What is a Foot Massage?
Foot massage simply put, means the process of applying pressure – gentle pressing, kneading, turning – to the foot to relieve its tension and pains.
This practice has been around for many thousands of years. The foot massage believed to originate from China.
China and Foot Massage
The Chinese culture has this principle or notion that parts of our foot correspond to other parts of our body. Therefore, they believe that massaging the foot can help relieve tension, and heal sickness.
This belief and practice have a name and it is referred to as “reflexology”. In recent years, some forms of foot massages done by professionals borrow elements from reflexology and “shiatsu”.
In earlier times and even till now, the normal way of massaging feet is the use of hands to gently apply pressure to various parts of the feet. However, there are now devices produced to take care of that function, devices like the Medi-Rub Foot Massager 2000 Plus Series, which we are going to review here.
This device makes massaging of the feet so much easier, effective and time conserving.
Benefits of Massaging the Feet
Here are the reasons why you should need a foot massage and how that can improve your overall physical and mental health.
● For relaxation
The ability of the massage to relax your body and soul is the most common reason why we all love a massage. Foot massage after a stressful day, soothe, relax and can even help one to sleep. It does so by reducing the amount of Cortisol (stress hormone) in the blood.
● Pain and ache relief
● Improves blood circulation
when we wear tight-fitting shoes or sit for a long time, blood circulation in the foot is reduced or impeded. Therefore, massaging the foot improves blood circulation.
● Improve moods
By massaging your feet, especially when combined it with some elements of reflexology, we feel less anxious, and the effects of depression is reduced. We feel more happy, relaxed in return.
