The warm weather has arrived in Florida (fortunately without the high humidity yet). If that’s not your experience where you live, can you imagine? Pretend that you’re trading in your wool socks and closed-in boots for “spring/summer attire”? Where I live, that means flip-flops and slides – the topic of my post today. So, what’s wrong with these free-wheeling shoes? Plenty. Especially if you’re someone who is on their feet a lot and doesn’t take preventative measures to keep them healthy and strong.

If you read last week’s post on March 18, you’ll know how much importance I put on relaxation. It’s not just me either.

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t learn a lot about what causes debilitating foot pain when I first studied reflexology. I was forced to learn though as more and more people came to me – often as a last ditch effort – with their painful conditions. Over time I became known in my community for being able to help people, with plantar fasciitis and peripheral neuropathy specifically. Initially, my approach was simply reflexology. Sometimes that worked beautifully, but sometimes it didn’t; and that left me a little frustrated. . . . → Read More: Relieving Chronic Foot Pain
