The Japanese say the sole of the foot is your second heart. About two-thirds of leg muscles work together to pump blood back towards the heart. Veins concentrate in the sole. Properly pressing & stimulating them promotes blood flow, supporting heart function. This can be seen by the image on the left, following an experiment carried out by the Shizuoka Industrial Technology Centre to compare sole surface temperature on someone who wore Kenkoh health sandals for 30 minutes.

Kenkoh customers have also reported that Kenkoh sandals have helped with a range of conditions such as Diabetes, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, back pain, sciiatia, arthritis, tendonitis, migraines, edema, cold feet, nervous leg syndrome, neuromas, heel pain, foot pain, low energy, calluses, lower leg muscle soreness, bunion pain, metatarsal pain, varicose veins.

Feel the difference! Kenkoh massage shoes and specific health benefits

Tired feet

Most posture issues and sore, aching feet are a result of wearing inappropriate shoes (either flat shoes which do not provide enough support for the body or high heels which strain muscles and joints). Kenkoh sandals are designed to give you the right level of support for your feet, muscles and joints so you’ll feel comfortable and pain-free even after several hours of wear.

Swollen Feet

Pregnancy, hot temperatures and long days can all leave the ankles and feet swollen and uncomfortable but Kenkoh shoes are medically proven to reduce swelling and improve blood circulation.

Sciatica

Pain which originates from the sciatic nerve in the lower back is known as sciatica. It can be triggered by a range of factors, including a slipped disc and pregnancy.

If you have sciatica, you may have given up hope of finding shoes that are not only effective but also stylish and attractive. Kenkoh shoes can help to soothe the symptoms of sciatica, such as shooting pains and burning in the leg thanks to the massaging nodules in the footbed. By working specific reflex points in the foot which correspond to the spine and hip area, the magic of Kenkoh can make your pain more manageable.

Flat Feet

The tendons in feet cause the normal arch effect you see when looking at a foot in profile. If the tendons in the foot pull together correctly, they cause the distinctive arch shape but, when the tendons are weakened and not pulling together, the arch falls, given the appearance of a flat foot.

Kenkoh sandals are the perfect way to ease the discomfort flat feet can cause. The clever design supports the plantar arch which can help to improve balance and reduce issues associated with flat feet and bad posture. The result is happier, more supported feet and a happier you as a result.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the tissue that connects the heel to the toes becomes strained and swollen or irritated as a result. With repeated strain, the foot can feel sore and painful.

Kenkoh sandals are designed to make life more comfortable for your feet by supporting the plantar arch to improve balance and reduce issues associated with bad posture. This helps you get back on the road to healthier, happier feet.

Arthritis

A reduction in cartilage tissue causes arthritis. Cartilage is a flexible, connective tissue in joints that absorb the pressure and shock created from movement like running and walking. It also protects the joints and allows for smooth movement. When that cartilage isn’t present, joints become stiff and painful.

Kenkoh designs are the ideal shoe for those with arthritis. Supremely comfortable and packed with health benefits, Kenkoh designs use the very latest elastomer technology to create a cushioning sole. This absorbs impact when walking on hard surfaces, easing pressure on the joints, knees and back.

Back and joint pain relief

Joint pain is caused when joints rub together, leading to discomfort or pain when moving. This pain can vary in intensity and occur anywhere in the body. When you have back pain, the right kind of shoe can make all the difference. Kenkoh shoes help to deliver relief from back and joint pain thanks to their reflexology design and deep cushioning system. The massaging nodules relieve pressure on the back and knees while the thick sole and cushioning systems protects the spine and lumbar for increased comfort.

Peripheral Neuropathy Disorder

If the periphery nerves become damaged, either through an associated condition such as diabetes or because of injury, infection or toxins, peripheral neuropathy disorder can present itself. It manifests in a range of ways but is often felt as weakness, numbness or pins and needles in the hands and feet.

Increasingly, reflexology and other natural, alternative healing practises are being used to ease the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. As they are based on reflexology and acupressure practises, Kenkoh shoes can help to alleviate some of the symptoms of the disorder.

The reflexology-inspired massaging foot bed stimulates nerve endings in the foot, which correspond to organs and muscles throughout the body. The massaging action is also clinically proven to boost circulation and blood flow and ease tension, making Kenkoh sandals the ideal choice for those with peripheral neuropathy.
