Say Yes to a Foot Massage!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just the thought of having someone else touch my feet used to send shivers down my spine.  Then I discovered that when done well, a good foot massage can provide some amazing pain relief!!

You don’t have to book an expensive spa day or give up because you don’t know a massage therapist.  Many years ago my husband, who has no massage experience whatsoever, took it upon himself to learn how to massage feet in order to help reduce my chronic pain.  Through the years his technique has improved and so has the level of relief that I experience from his massages.

Find out why you need to say yes to a foot massage and pick up some tips to help your partner or friend learn how to help reduce your pain!

Why PEMF therapy is part of my daily pain management plan

I don’t know about you, but when I find a pain relief medication/product/treatment that works, I make sure to use it every single day.
