How It Works
Futzuki reflexology foot mat is meant to relieve pain by simply standing on it. This unit uses reflexology to relieve pain along the spine in particular. Foot reflexology is a specific science. This science states that there are nerve endings in the feet which connect to every other part of your body. Reflexology is holistic in nature and it works to keep your body in balance and activate your body so that it naturally heals itself.
There are 10 different zones on the body, five on each side which are represented by specific points on the bottom of your feet. Your brain associates the different reflex points on your feet with the different parts of your body. So, theoretically by pinpointing a reflex point on the toes, for example, the brain will activate the healing powers your body naturally has and help to alleviate pain in your shoulder or your back. Reflexology is meant to relieve stress and tension. If you have too much stress or tension it can prevent proper blood circulation it can also increase your pain and inhibit sleep.
- Good Reviews
Many customers have claimed that using this particular mat is great. They also claim that the insoles designed for shoes has offered a great deal of pain relief on the feet, something which is great for people who have to stand on their feet all day.
- Some Relief
These reflexology mats do provide some level of relief because they can stimulate sore feet. If your feet are tired this can inhibit blood flow and relaxation. Of course no mat will give you comprehensive foot pain relief but stepping on this not every day will give you some sort of comfort.
- Scientifically Questionable
Many people argue that this particular mat is not reflexology and should not use the name reflexology. Reflexology in and of itself is also in question.
Over 100 research studies have found that it can be effective. The other side to that coin is that many scientists think that reflexology is based on a theory that you do not have any illness. Really, the idea is that a good foot massage can help you to relax temporarily. However, the actual pressure points and reflex points in your feet are so small. It would be next to impossible for a large human hand or even a large mat to accurately massage the specific reflex point.
How it's Different from Competitors
Regular reflexology foot massages are the foundation for this mat. The whole purpose of the matter is to make sure that you don't have to pay the high price of going to get regular reflexology foot massages. Instead can simply stand on the mat for a few minutes at a time. Generally speaking reflexology massages last for one hour and they cost about thirty to forty dollars per hour. The specialist focuses on your feet pinpointing different parts of the foot based on how much pain you have and where that pain is located. This can of course become very expensive especially if you go anytime you feel stressed or you endure a great deal of pain on a regular basis. Comparatively, investing in this reflexology foot mat just the ones gives you the opportunity to improve your health and alleviate pain regularly without additional costs.
The ball shaped protrusions that are contained on the mats are where you find the different reflexology points. So they are rather soft to the touch and when you step on them you feel nothing but a gentle pressure. The problem is that each point correlates to a specific point in your body. You are simply stepping on the mat and kind of moving your feet around so that you get an overall improvement to your health.
However, if you have a specific area that is problematic it takes a specialist to pinpoint that specific area on your foot. Simply standing on the mat and moving your feet around does not necessarily pinpoint the area in question nor does it give you the amount of pressure you need. There is no real way for you to increase the pressure with this mat.
- Results May Vary
Keep in mind that any pain relief product is very subjective. The amount of pain reduction that you received is specific to you and your body. Even though this mat works well for some people, your level of pain or the area which is in pain might differ strongly from someone else. You might get more pain if your feet are simply sore from walking around all day but if you have chronic pain it might not work for you.
- Temporary Relief
Pay attention to the fact that the advertisement specifically states that any pain relief you experience is temporary. This unit is not going to fix the source of your pain or stop the pain permanently. It is only a temporary solution.
- Foot Massagers
There are many foot massaging devices on the market including vibration devices, water devices, pressure pads, and heating devices. All of these claims to do the same thing that the reflexology mat does which is to improve circulation and give you pain relief.
There are specific massaging rollers that have the same little tiny bumps that the mat has. You run your feet over the rollers just like you would slide back and forth on a flat surface. This naturally massages your feet after a long day. There are two sided foot massager mats which are meant to give you some of the same acupressure foot relief because they have rounded pyramid points across the rubber flooring.
