Foot Health Care Benefits
This treatment is used to help improve your foot health as sadly this is often neglected. Having a foot massage can improve your mental health and circulation. Most people take their feet for granted, until pain or problems such as blisters or calluses develop. It is important to be kind to your feet and take care of them — before problems arise — and to treat existing problems before they limit your ability to function.
• Quality of life – Quality of life/ability to function. Your quality of life is directly related to your ability to be self-sufficient — capable of performing activities of daily living such as walking, shopping, visiting friends and family, working and playing. If your feet hurt or you have other foot problems, you are unlikely to function at your best. If you modify your gait to avoid a painful bunion, for example, your posture and balance will be affected, making you more vulnerable to falling.
• Productive work – It goes without saying that good foot health is important if your job demands that you be on your feet for any significant amount of time. Even if you spend most of your time at your desk, you still have to get up occasionally; in fact, to avoid neck and shoulder pain associated with sitting at a computer, and to prevent blood from pooling in your feet, it is vital that you do stand up and walk around at least once an hour. Poor foot health can harm work performance, resulting in lost time, lost productivity, lower job efficiency and effectiveness and even impact negatively on ones mental health.
• Regular physical activity – A large body of research confirms the importance of physical activity to overall health, especially as we get older. Of course, any amount of physical activity is better than none, but with poor foot health, you may be less likely to engage in even a minimal amount of physical activity. The less you do, the less you can do. The result: loss of muscle mass and strength, reduced endurance, and higher risk of diseases related to a sedentary lifestyle, including diabetes, heart disease, and cognitive decline.
