My job as Chief Theorist of Wardrobe Theory and Influencer at Gushcloud requires me to be in heels a lot. I wear heels almost everyday at photoshoots, events…and because I like the height elevation and the illusion of longer legs that heels provide, I wear heels even on off duty days. They complete an outfit!
As a girl, we all know how lovely heels can be, and the downside from wearing them for extended hours – oh, that cramp and numbness that starts from the feet and shoots up your calves!
The heels that I wear for photoshoots – for vanity and for the sake of getting nice pictures – are usually even more uncomfortable and not quite made for walking. Needless to say, I always kick off my heels (with much relief) and collapse into a chair everytime after when I’m done.
My best respite and cure for my tortured feet at the end of the day: the OSIM uSqueez Air.
These massage boots are a life saver. I literally feel all the pain and numbness from being in heels all day melt away whenever it starts working its magic. The most amazing part of all: it not only gives your feet a good rub, its wrap-around feature also works on your calves. Absolutely heavenly! It combines a strong, yet soothing massage with powerful airbags that squeeze your tired leg muscles into total relaxation, and the foot reflexology rollers kneads all the stress, tension and knots away. Bliss.
There are five auto lifestyle programs to select for these massage boots – Reflexology, Energise, High- Heels, Relax and Sleep with two intensity choices of High and Low. I actually like all five different programs and I alternate between them. If I really had to choose, I’ll go for High-Heels (for obvious reasons!) and Sleep. On most days, I’ll go for both settings at a go; one after the other and my feet will feel like they’re walking on a fluff of clouds after. These 2 settings, as the names suggest are best done before bed. I promise you’ll sleep like a baby!
On occasions when I’m feeling particularly tired, I’ll opt for Reflexology and it’s a great perk me up. This program improves body circulation and promotes positive energy flow. I guess that’s why I feel a lot more energised after one sitting on this program. I hear that Reflexology also improves one’s immune system!
What I really like about the uSqueez Air is how lightweight and mobile it is. It’s super easy to move around, even for someone like me who usually has trouble lifting heavy things. And yes, I use it on my bed too! It’s such a bonus to be able to lie back comfortably in bed and have your legs massaged.
Sometimes when I’m working, I set it on low intensity and leave my legs in the boots for an extended period. The massage is so gentle and soothing…I’d like to think it helps me think better! Haha.
I’ve always been a huge advocate for massages, especially massages for the feet. Besides the instant gratification you get from how good it feels and the relief from any pain or tension, it generally improves overall health and well-being. I find that foot massages even cure the aches that I suffer from quite often in my shoulder and neck – you know what they say about all parts of your body being connected down to the soles of your feet.
Already quite a regular at foot massage parlours before the uSqueez Air, I’m ecstatic that I now get to have foot massages in the comfort of my own home. So completely addicted to this massage boots, my legs have never felt more pampered or happy!
