How Reflexology Massage Sandals Actually Help
Excess wastes, such as Uric Acid and Lactic Acid crystallize and gravitate to the feet. The accumulation of these wastes may impede proper nerve function and blood circulation causing tired aching feet.
The gentle massaging action of the Kenkoh "fingers" helps to break up the accumulated crystals in the feet. These crystals do have sharp edges and putting pressure on them may cause discomfort for some people initially. This is the most important function. Breaking up the crystals and restoring function to your nerves and reflex zones is the magic transformation! The sandals also stimulate blood flow and help to flush the acidic crystals from the circulatory system. Drink extra water during initial therapy (see "Wearing Recommendations".)
Dormant or sluggish nerve endings in the Sole Reflexive Zones are stimulated as well. This stimulation contributes to improving the health and function in related organs and muscles throughout the body.
Where or When to Wear Kenkoh Reflexology Massage Health Sandals
- First thing in the morning to help wake you up
- Right after work to energize
- As a shower shoe
- As a beach shoe
- At your desk at work - promotes healthy circulation
- After any sporting activity - helps stressed, sore muscles
- While in wheelchair or other sedentary situation - promotes healthy circulation
- As house slipper
Nerves corresponding to organs are concentrated in the sole in Sole Reflexive Zones. Stimulating these nerves on a daily basis can contribute to improving the health of organs and muscles. The Kenkoh Health Sandal is designed to stimulate these nerve pressure points in your feet.
About two-thirds of leg muscles work together to pump blood back toward the heart. Veins concentrate in the sole. Properly pressing and stimulating them promotes blood flow, supporting heart function.
When various reflex points are stimulated they induce a healing response. If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced this indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances, and with repeated wear these channels of blocked energy can be cleared resulting in improved health.
Place your mouse over the names of the Reflexive Zones to see which pressure point corresponds to the named body part.
Kenkoh Massage Insole
The heart of the Kenkoh Health Sandal is the massage insole.
The massage insole stimulates areas of the sole of the foot which correspond to all the glands, organs and parts of the body. The rubber insole nodules act like tiny fingers, applying pressure to the sole of the foot. As in Shiatsu and Reflexology healing techniques, the Kenkoh Health Sandal massages the feet when you walk, stand or sit with even light pressure on the sole.
It has been known for thousands of years that stimulating the individual Reflexology Zones on the sole contributes to the health of organs and muscles. Shiatsu therapists massage the soles of the feet in order to stimulate the body’s energy flow and rebalance the body.
When various reflex points are stimulated they induce a healing response. Standing on the Kenkoh Health Sandal creates a feeling much like that felt during a Reflexology massage session. Key nerve endings are stimulated which energizes organs, body functions and blood flow. Walking in the Kenkoh Health Sandals creates a rhythmic pressure on the soles of the feet similar to the rhythmic massage of a skilled Shiatsu therapist.
The research study conducted by the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine has provided modern scientific evidence of the health benefits of the Kenkoh Health Sandals.
Kenkoh Double-Arch Fit System
The Kenkoh Double-Arch Fit System combines the comfortable massaging ability of natural rubber nodules and the shock-absorbing qualities of the elastomer midsole.
Research conducted by the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine has proven the positive health benefits of the Kenkoh Health Sandals.
Kenkoh Size Chart
Kenkoh Health Sandals are manufactured to a metric standard. The centimeter measurement indicates the length of the insole at the center line.
When you receive your Kenkoh sandals you'll notice three numbers on the bottom ot the sole. The smallest number (e.g., "7") corresponds to a U.S. Ladies size, the second largest number (e.g., "24") represents the centimeter measure, and the largest number (e.g., "38") is a European size equivalent.
Kenkoh Wearing Recommendations
When various reflex points are stimulated they induce a healing response. Kenkoh Sandals are therapeutic and like any therapy you gradually increase your time as your body grows accustomed.
- At first, wear the Kenkoh Health Sandal for short periods of time (about 10 minutes).
- If you have very sensitive feet, wear socks to help adapt.
- Extend wear time at your own pace.
- Drink extra water during the initial therapy.
The Kenkoh Health Sandals are designed for periodic use (although some people do find them comfortable enough to wear all day).
The massaging action of the nodules will dislocate and dissolve accumulated waste and toxins in the soles of your feet.
The effects may vary from one user to another and depend upon many variables.
Kenkoh Kyoto Study Summary
The premise of the study was that the Kenkoh Health Sandal can ease or prevent fatigue.
The findings of the study concluded that after wearing the Kenkoh Health Sandal participants had:
- More energy - The Kenkoh Health Sandal energizes your feet which energizes your body. (When your feet are tired, you're tired all over.)
- A pulse rate that remained significantly lower (The Kenkoh Health Sandal improves circulation and lowers your pulse rate.)
- Reduced swelling (In the feet and legs.)
- Reduced foot pain
- A warmer, better feeling mood
Kenkoh Kyoto Study Results
In February 2006 a study was conducted through Kyoto University, in Kyoto, Japan to verify the benefits of health sandals.
The study, "Examination of Effects of Plantar Pressure Stimulation on Fatigue through Randomly Self-Controlled Study", was undertaken by Naoko Kondo through the Department of Health Promotion and Human Behavior, School of Public Health, Kyoto University.
The premise of the study was that the use of health sandals, specifically the Kenkoh Health Sandal, as a form of "self medication" can ease or prevent fatigue. A total of 80 female university students, average age 23.3 years, were divided into two groups -- study and control. The study group wore the Kenkoh Health Sandal. The control group wore a plain sandal of similar style, but without the massaging nodules. All participants were on their feet performing normal activities during the 4-hour test period.
The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) was used as the primary measure for evaluating the sense of fatigue of the whole body and feet. The response range ran from "no feeling of fatigue" to "strongest feeling of fatigue ever".
The Profile of Mood States (POMS) was used as a second system to verify the VAS measure. POMS measures the sense of fatigue and liveliness. Listlessness was also measured as were vital signs including pulse rate, blood pressure and body temperature. Lower limb circumference was measured to see the effects of the Kenkoh Health Sandals on edema on the lower limbs. Finally a secondary VAS measurement was made for five terms - "Feet feel warm", "Body feels warm", "Body feels light", "Soles hurt", and "Feels good".
The findings of the study concluded that after wearing the Kenkoh Health Sandal versus the plain sandal:
- Overall fatigue (VAS) was eased
- The feeling of fatigue and listlessness (POMS) improved significantly
- Pulse rate remained significantly lower
- The change in lower limb circumference (measuring edema) was much lower
- Subjects felt their feet and body were warmer, their body was lighter, they had less sole pain, they felt better
