Kick off your shoes and enjoy a stimulating shiatsu foot massage together with a feet warming function - delightful!
The Beurer FWM50 is a foot warmer like no other, massaging your feet with a shiatsu massage function known in traditional Eastern medicine to promote physical, emotional and mental well-being coupled with the benefit of a warming function to aid relaxation and help soother sore and tired swollen feet!
Shiatsu massage is a form of body massage developed in Japan around 100 years ago. ‘Shiatsu’ literally translates as ‘finger pressure’ and this is the sensation delivered by the Beurer FWM50 Foot Warmer.
What's so good about Shiatsu foot massage?
The number one reason? It feels good! Our feet are one of the most overworked parts in our body, and quite often they are the most ignored too! Our feet bear our weight and our bad shoes without so much as a glance from week to week! However when you experience the relaxation of a shiatsu foot massage you will be transported to another place of stress free relaxation and feather-like blissful feet!
Shiatsu foot massage has been scientifically proved to benefit the body, when the feet are massaged circulation to them increases. This increase in circulation ensures that extra oxygen is brought to the area which feeds and nourishes the muscles, but more importantly toxins are also carried away from the feet. Toxins and reduced circulation cause swelling, aches and pains to the feet as they become trapped in the area. By improving the circulation toxins are transported away in the bloodstream to be filtered and cleansed before being expelled out of the body.. It is no wonder that recent research showed that when shiatsu foot massage was carried out on patients who have undergone heart surgery they showed significant reduction in their levels of stress.
Can Shiatsu Foot massage help to relieve painful feet? You bet it can!
If you suffer from painful feet you will no doubt know how crippling (literally) it can be. One such painful foot condition is Plantar Fasciitis - it is a common cause of heel pain that involves pain and inflammation of the thick band of tissue in the foot called the plantar fascia. This tissue runs across the bottom of the foot joining the heel bone to the toes. If you've ever experienced plantar fasciitis you'll know all too well the sharp stabbing pains usually felt first thing in the morning. What sufferers find is that when the feet have limbered up the pain usually subsides. Sadly, as soon as tiredness creeps back in, or for those on their feet all day - the pain will return with a vengeance!
Massage and the stretching of the feet can be beneficial to reducing the pain of plantar fasciitis, including massage of the arch of the foott and especially the heel. The benefits of the Beurer FWM50 Foot Warmer With Shiatsu Massage mean that you can use the massage only feature, and enjoy a therapeutic shiatsu massage session, then relax further with the warming function to help stimulate circulation and reduce the effect of tired swollen feet. Alternatively you can use both the massage and the heat function together, this is really beneficial if you find you suffer with cold feet.
Why do women seem to have cold feet more than men?
It's not a myth! Women are 9x more likely to develop cold in their extremities than men. Why do women feel the cold more? Well, their fat is more evenly distributed insulating internal organs, the knock-on effect of this is that the blood supply protects core organs and the trunk rather extremities, and quite simply that equals cold hands and cold feet. Because men have more heat-generating muscle mass their blood flow is increased meaning they feel warmer.
Women are also thin skinned - not really! And as a woman ages her skin will thin even more, there is less subcutaneous fat than in men's skin, so again it is hard for women to keep warm. As a woman ages the skin on her feet will thin - this is why the blood finds it hard to get to them and warm them up.
So it is not a myth that women feel the cold more than men, it is a scientific fact. Sometimes there are no amount of socks or layers on the feet that will help to keep them warm - that's where this foot massager comes in. Not only will the user receive a stimulation, blood circulating (= warming) shiatsu foot massage, but also the toasty benefits of a foot warmer too.
