Keep Your Feet Happy and Healthy with a Spa
December 6th, 2013
Attention Runners – Keep your feet happy and healthy with a Spa!
Summer is here and it’s a great time to get out on the track for some exercise. Our feet are involved in absorbing the shock of impact in both landing and push-off phases of a running cycle, so it is important that if we want to continue running throughout the summer that we keep our feet happy and healthy.
The consistent pounding our feet endure during a run can cause swelling and poor circulation. Take off your shoes and socks and get your feet elevated above your hips to relive the swelling.
If you are a runner the experiences numbing this can be counteracted with ice packs. Take off your shoes and socks and get your feed elevated, and apply ice packs to your sore spots. A bonus to cool you down quickly on those hot summer days!
Your feet will absolutely love you if you treat them to a dip in hot water. Sit on the edge of the spa and let your feet soak. Let the jets work their magic by increasing the circulation in your feet and ankles.
Give your feet a nice half hour break after a run, use this time to chill out, stretch and relax. Don’t forget to keep hydrated.
Get outdoors this summer, and keep your feet happy and healthy so they can keep on running!
