Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Twenty Third Giveaway sponsored by:

Happy Feet, Happy Body!

What happens to the rest of your day when early on you realize your feet are aching? I don't know about you, but mine goes downhill pretty quick. Achy feet have a variety of causes, some that are obvious such as tight shoes or a blister, others may not be as obvious such as poor/low blood circulation.

In winter do your nails on your hands and feet change color in cold weather even with warm socks and gloves on? Mine do, I've always known my blood circulation could use help.

I've always had a keen interest in accupressure, notice I said Pressure NOT Puncture! While I have a respect for both, I'm a bit needle shy!

It's More than Just a Foot! 

This chart certainly puts a foot rub into a whole new perspective! It is said you can tell what part of the body needs additional help by what part of your foot is the most tender/sore to the touch when you massage it. If there is a certain part of the body you want to help affect additional healing towards, rub your foot in the corresponding area longer!
Get It Circulating!

Massage therapy has long term effects that are way more than just skin deep! Better circulation is part of the chain reaction that happens in the body as a result of receiving massage therapy on a regular basis.

Poor circulation manifests in various ways including: pooling of the fluid in the extremities (like the toes), cold hands and feet, fatigue, and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. Improving Circulation, brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen rich blood they need to heal.

The pressure created by massage moves blood through the congested areas and helps facilitate improved circulation. The squeezing and pulling, flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation of the lymph fluid. Lymph Fluid carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs, resulting in lower blood pressure and improved body function. Improved circulation is just one more benefit of massage therapy. Combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise, massage can be the key to leading a healthier lifestyle.

After having a massage, even a deep tissue where you are left a bit sore afterwards, once you start walking you realize quickly that you are energized and feel more invigorated.

So can a foot massage really change your life? Both physically, and mentally I say YES! It can! And just like not all massages are equal (sometimes you need one from someone more heavy handed to work out those knots of tension, and sometimes you are sore/stiff and require the benefits of a lighter touch), so to are machines, not all massagers are created equal!

My Take


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - True circulation massage, not just a vibrational one, which in my opinion offers more long term benefit
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Easy Sleeves - I love that you can easily remove the sleeve and wash it often (People WANT to use it, and a result I feel much happier that I can clean the sleeves between each use)
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Easy Set Up! I love when Plug and Play truly means plug and play!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Big Footprint both width and height, I was hoping to be able to tuck it under one of the end tables when not in use
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Beware of your chair, if you use it sitting on an office chair, LOCK the wheels first, because it will actually move you in the chair, sit somewhere stable with it. Even with office chair wheels locked it could move my chair backwards. (Which if you ask me is also a Pro by the way!)
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Be sure that if you are planning to leave this in a family room that you supervise children and of course watch out for your pets, if it's plugged in and they jump on it, they can turn it on or off accidentally!

I have tried other machines that enclose the calf so the calf massage is much more intense, with this unit the calf is NOT fully enclosed. Which means if you have athletic calves you won't have to worry about whether or not you can get your foot in, but it doesn't give as intense a massage to the calf area because of it. To get a full calf massage, you put your calves on top of the unit, it gives the calves a massage this way instead of on the inside of the unit as with competing brands. This is a plus and minus again, a plus because any size calf can enjoy this massager, but a con because your feet will hang over the unit while your calves are being massaged which is a bit awkward to get used to. If you are a wider width foot, you feel some extra pressure on your ankle bone, so take the time to adjust your foot properly and comfortably, until you are 'in' in such a way that truly feels comfortable for your foot. 

I recommend the HT-1350 Pro Foot and Calf Massager for everyone on your list! An especially thoughtful gift for anyone in your life who is on their feet all day! Hair Dressers, Bank Tellers, Bartenders, Delivery, Messengers, Waitreses and even folks who drive all day like Taxi Drivers, Truck Drivers who could really benefit from a circulation massage after a long hard day!
