Benefits of Using a Foot & Leg Massager
FOOT MASSAGER IMPROVES CIRCULATION
Due to a mostly sedentary lifestyle we have become unaccustomed to using our muscles on a regular basis.
The muscles in the feet get hardly any exercise and circulation is often impaired by tight and uncomfortable shoes.
A 10–20 minute massage session with a an electric foot massager before going to bed can greatly improve circulation in the lower extremities, which is particularly important for people suffering from diabetes.
FOOT MASSAGER HELPS PREVENT FOOT AND ANKLE INJURIES
Massaging the feet with the electric foot massager can help with joint pain and aid recovery after an injury, as well as reduce muscle soreness.
However, when massage is combined with foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching it can prevent future injuries, as well as speed up recovery of existing injuries.
A short session three to five times a week with the foot & leg massager will ensure that you minimize the risk of injury.
We all have our moments of clumsiness, but a strengthened and flexible ankle and foot ensures that we can avoid unpleasant injuries.
FOOT MASSAGER REDUCES THE EFFECTS OF DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
Looking at some of the studies that have been done on the effects of reflexology, it seems that this type of foot massage goes beyond simply putting people in a relaxed state for the duration of the massage.
Frequent sessions with a foot massager have been shown to significantly reduce anxiety in cancer patients. The techniques can be learned fairly quickly and can serve as an effective way of dealing with depression and anxiety.
FOOT MASSAGER CAN LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
High blood pressure has become fairly common in modern men and women. It can be caused by a number of things such as stress and an unhealthy diet, but in most cases it has no particular cause and is believed to be a result of environmental factors and genetics.
A study conducted on healthcare staff working with elderly people suffering from dementia – a job that is highly stressful and both physically and mentally taxing – showed that a 10-minute session with a foot massager up to three times a week resulted in improved mood, less anxiety and lower blood pressure.
FOOT MASSAGER HELPS WITH FLAT FEET AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS
People with flat feet do not have a normal foot arch due to ligament laxity, which causes the arch to collapse. It can have no major effect on a person, but some people experience foot pain after even mild physical activity due to flat feet.
Chronic heel pain can be caused by inflammation or deterioration of the plantar fascia (the connective tissue that supports the arch of the foot).
Regular foot exercise coupled with deep foot and leg massage, where you apply strong pressure on the arch, can help significantly lessen the pain and even cure these conditions.
ALLEVIATE SYMPTOMS OF PMS AND MENOPAUSE WITH A FOOT MASSAGER
The most common symptoms suffered during PMS include feelings of sadness and unhappiness, irritability, anxiety, tension, insomnia, fatigue, headaches and mood swings.
Most of these symptoms can be alleviated with by using a foot massager daily during this period.
