The benefits of foot massager
You feel tired on your feet? We've got you covered.
Meet your new favorite tool: the foot massager.
You don't think you need it until you have it.
1. Improves circulation
Improve circulation Due to a largely sedentary lifestyle, we have become unaccustomed to using our muscles on a regular basis. The muscles of the feet get little to no exercise, and tight and uncomfortable shoes usually interfere with blood circulation. A 10-20 minute massage before bed can greatly improve circulation in the lower extremities, which is especially important for diabetics.
2. Help you relax
The best way to relax after a tiring day is to have a soothing and relaxing foot massage, especially after a long day of standing and walking, when our feet tend to swell. A foot massage gives you energy by releasing any blockages that hold back the energy, stress and fatigue that relieves the symptoms.
A regular foot massage of 5 to 10 minutes before bedtime can improve overall health.
3. helps prevent ankle and foot injuries
Massaging the feet can help relieve joint pain, aid in recovery from injury, and reduce muscle soreness. However, when massage is combined with foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretches, it can prevent future injuries and speed recovery from existing injuries. Short sessions of three to five times a week will ensure you minimize your risk of injury. We all have our clumsy moments, but strong, flexible ankles and feet ensure that we can avoid unpleasant injuries.
4. Helps Plantar Fasciitis and Flat Feet
People with flat feet do not have normal arches due to lax ligaments, resulting in collapsed arches. It does not affect a person significantly, but some people experience foot pain from flat feet after even light physical activity. Chronic heel pain can be caused by inflammation or degeneration of the plantar fascia (the connective tissue that supports the arch of the foot). Regular foot exercises, combined with deep massage that applies strong pressure to the arch, can help significantly reduce pain and even cure these conditions.
5. Reduce high blood pressure
Hypertension is becoming quite common in modern men and women. It can be caused by many factors, such as stress and an unhealthy diet, but in most cases it has no particular cause and is thought to be the result of environmental factors and genetics. A study of health care workers working with older adults with dementia showed that up to three 10-minute foot massages per week improved mood, reduced anxiety and lowered blood pressure.
