Obviously I knew what a massage was, but a stone massage mat
? This was all news to me and, if I'm brutally honest, I thought it was just a gimmick. If medicinal pain relief and specific balance exercises weren't able to help, what was a stone massage mat going to do for me?
Luckily, my daughter over-ruled my skepticism and ordered me one
- and I will be forever
grateful she did.
At first glance, it looks a little funny. Essentially a foldable mat covered in small stone-like bumps, I had absolutely no idea what on earth this was going to achieve.
But after getting the hand of walking on the stone back and forth, I started to sense a significant change.
Now don't get me wrong, this change didn't happen overnight. I persevered with this mat, and had multiple daily sessions with it to not only begin feeling comfortable...
...but to start experiencing results.
Over time, I could feel every single contour of my foot sole being quite literally "massaged" and targeted. Because of this, my chronic foot pain dramatically decreased, and I found myself reaching for the pain killers less and less.
Better still, because this mat essentially trains both your feet and brain to work together in order to balance, my spacial awareness and ability to keep upright has been completely transformed!
Getting up and down the stairs in my home is now no longer a daunting task, and I'm able to spend quality time with my young grandchildren without having to worry about my foot pain suddenly holding me back.
I genuinely feel revitalized, and haven't felt this young and vibrant in a VERY long time. So if you, like me, have suffered with stubborn foot pain and balance problems, the pain relief stone massage mat
is an absolute must-have - no doctors or expensive medication needed!
