Why we need Foot massage?
Our feet bear the weight of our body when we are standing. However we weight more when walking than standing. Walking is dead weight plus push energy which adds around 30% more to standing.
Other than letting us having the stability and balance while standing, they provides the grip and strength needed for us to walk, run and jump. At the same time, it absorbs the shocks of our movement so the rest of our body is not jarred.
Each foot have around 20 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, 250 000 sweat glands, more than 50 ligaments and tendons and 7000+ nerve endings. Not to forget, the reflex points which link to the different organs and glands of the body.
They had served us well throughout the years and done a lot of works. Still they are the least pampered part of the body. To keep the body healthy, it is recommended to massage our feet at least once a day.
Traditional Foot reflexology is an ancient natural healing practice based on the reflex points on the feet that correspond to the body’s different organs and glands. With improved blood circulation on the feet, it improves the health of the different organs through the reflex points.
What is EMS?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Technology(EMS) or also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), sends electrical pulse in to the targeted muscle group to cause muscle contractions. Widely used by body builders, athletes and physiotherapist to strengthen muscles with electrical charge.
