What are Massage Shoes and Their Benefits

I recently attended the event hosted by a Japanese Massage Footwear Brand Kenkoh in The Dubai Mall. It gave me a much needed exposure to the existence of massage footwear and their immense benefits.

We also interacted with reflexologist & natural health practitioner Gwenn Zen who gave us a five minute feet reflexology foot massage enhancing our knowledge about the science.

Zen told us how each and every organ of our body is connected to feet. As she massaged our feet, she literally told us about our health condition by feeling the state of all organs in our feet. Isn’t it amazing?

So here’s my bit on educating my blog readers about what are massage shoes, their benefits and how to wear them.

Most of us do not realise that the entire stress and weight of our body is carried by our feet and feet are the most ignored part of our body. We should take care of our feet and keep them strong with daily foot massages for a few minutes. This is where massage footwear comes into play. Because massaging your feet every day may not be feasible, you can give massage slippers a try.

Here are some of the health benefits of wearing massage slippers:

Better Sleep

These sleepers target the nerve endings, as a result you have better blood circulation & relaxed nerves. Walking in massage shoes induce better sleep

Stress Reliever

Massage sandals massage the feet and act as a pain reliever. The area in the center of the toe and the ball of the feet are linked to mental and emotional health. Targeting these areas by wearing acupressure sandals can relieve symptoms of depression.

Pain and Ache Reliever

The pain arising from ankle, neck, migraine headache, lower back and thighs can be fully relieved by walking in massage slippers for 30 minutes every day.

Eases menopause and PMS symptoms

Many women suffer from extreme mood swings and aches due to premenstrual syndrome. Symptoms of menopause such as depression, backache and foot ache can be reduced by using massage slippers. The area where the big toe meets the rest of the feet is an essential point to relieve stress caused by such symptoms.

How To Start Wearing Massage Shoes

Massage Shoes are not your comfy bedroom slippers. Your feet need time to adapt to the massage slippers.

Until you grow accustomed to your Kenkoh Massage Sandals, it is recommended that you wear them 5-30 minutes, two or three times a day. If you have sensitive feet, try wearing socks in the beginning. Generally, it takes three days to three weeks to adapt to Kenkoh sandals. Once accustomed, extend wear time at your own pace
