foot massage with foot trainersPosted by Lori W. on 7/19/03 at 13:11 (124795)
OK, I got my foot trainers and the foot massage deally bob to go with it. My question is, how do I massage exactly? It says to go from the base of each toe to the heel. Do I just run it down, pushing, in a straight line? Do I use a circular motion? Do I do it just once? I'm using a pretty good pressure and backing off in painful areas-adding more pressure gradually. Is this right? Following the massage, I ice the foot. Is this correct?

Mr. Wilmot? Are you there? You would be the best person to answer Lori W.'s questions - and probably others of us await the answer as well.

Start at either the big toe or baby toe and just slowly move toward your heel while gently probing in a circular motion until you find a tender spot.
Yes, once you find the tender spot, massage that spot for a couple of minutes. Start very gently and gradually increase the pressure.
After the massage you should ice only the tender spots not the entire bottom of your foot for about 5 minutes. Follow this with about 10 minutes of rest.
If you have any further questions please contact me.
