Plantar fasciitis = Ouch! This condition presents itself as pain in the heel and bottom of the foot overall. It can be particularly severe with the 1st steps of the day.
It develops over time, typically with one foot and possibly in both. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament. The plantar fascia ligament is made of fibrous bands of tissue and runs between the heel bone and your toes and stretches with every step. Inflammation develops when a tear occur in the tissue.
Why? The most common causes are;
1. An overload of physical activity or exercise.
4. Wearing incorrect shoes.
5. Mechanics of the foot(flat feet, high arches, pronation, or having an abnormal gait).
Regardless of the specific reason, INFLAMMATION is the common result. I believe by regularly providing circulation to the foot in various ways (both at home and with therapy such as TCM based reflexology) you will experience relief. This is my 1st PROVE IT special.
UPDATE as of 7/24/2018: I had one client commit to weekly sessions for the last few months. I'm happy to say that regular reflexology made her feet happy! Any morning foot pain was gone except when she had to miss a week...then symptoms began to return though less severe.
