Interesting Kenkoh Info:
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 (latex) 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.

Interesting Fact of the Week:
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.

Finn Comfort shoes are known in some circles as the Cadillac of footwear. An all-purpose shoe for those who need great support and comfort whenever they’re on their feet.
The Birkenstock company has been in business making high quality footwear for more than two hundred years. Made in Germany, Birkenstock shoes, sandals and clogs are constructed with quality craftsmanship using only the best products and materials available. Their contoured shape of the insole, shock absorbing soles, the fine leather and non-leather tops and quality buckle create a shoe that will provide many years of comfortable wear. Every part of these shoes are able to be replaced if needed over time, making them last even longer.
The special designing of the Birkenstocks provide proper weight distribution, with built-in arch support conforming to the foot’s most natural and comfortable shape. The raised shape of the bar between the toes and the foot, known as the toe bar, allow the toes to grip the shoes which in turn creates an exercise for the feet, back and legs causing better balance as a result, along with being an aid to circulation. The deep curve of the heel part of the shoes allow for better stability. All of this put together makes for healthier feet and keep the back and legs in alignment.
The unique comfort and shape of this footwear encourages better health overall. Many people claim that the longer they own their Birkenstocks, the more their feet adapt to the excellent shape of the shoe becoming even more comfortable over time. The foot beds give way to the bones and shape of each individual foot, creating a positive way to keep your feet, knees, legs and back in better health and alignment.
In the course of a good many hours of standing and walking, proper shoes are essential to your good health. The essential fact that these shoes are actually helping you in your daily activities and overall well-being, is the best reason to own a pair of Birkenstocks. If your feet, legs or back have been suffering in low quality shoes for any length of time, wearing Birkenstocks will be a real treat for you, allowing them to take on their natural shape for the greatest comfort.
The high expertise in the manufacturing of these fine products combined with the very best materials such as smooth leather, suede leather, jute, microfibre, polyurethane and nubuck along with the fact that they are completely repairable, make them a sound investment in a person’s life and finances. They are even perfect for those wishing to live animal free, using man-made products.
These great items also have great orthotic support when it comes to open footwear and they are an appealing alternative to the usual orthotic shoes. They are available in two different widths to fit the needs of all people. The latex and cork are molded precisely to create the most ecological home for your feet when shoes are needed.
Although there was a time these shoes were well known and used among the hippie culture, this company has come a long way in developing their reputation as one that is accepted on all levels of society.
Foot Pain From Morton’s Neuroma
Morton’s neuroma is a medical condition that affects the nerve in between the third and fourth toes. However, it only usually affects one foot.
The Causes of Morton’s Neuroma
Morton’s neuroma develops when the nerve between the third and fourth toes becomes crushed and / or irritated. The suspected cause of the irritation is wearing shoes that are too narrow. When the small bones of the foot press up against the nerve they cause the nerve and its surrounding tissues to become increasingly thick. Some foot care specialists believe that other foot conditions, including bunions and high foot arches, play a role in the development of Morton’s neuroma.
Anyone of any age can develop Morton’s neuroma. However, the condition commonly affects women. In particular, it tends to develop in women who regularly wear high-heeled footwear, those who partake in regular exercise and those with high arched feet.
The Symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma
Morton’s neuroma causes a tingling sensation at the base of toes or in the ball of the foot. Over time, this sensation may worsen, leading to cramping in the toes and shooting pains in the foot. The pain is likely to be at its worst when an affected individual tries to walk and / or wears shoes that fail to provide their feet with an appropriate level of support. In some people with Morton’s neuroma, the pain is so bad that they try to avoid placing their affected foot on the ground.
Anyone experiencing tingling sensations or pain in their feet should consult with a trained podiatrist, an individual who specializes in foot problems. A podiatrist may examine the affected foot and determine the severity and type of any pain felt, the duration of the symptoms experienced, the type of footwear worn and any work or leisure activities that have been carried out. An X-ray, MRI scan or ultrasound scan may be taken so that the structures inside of the foot can be viewed.
Non Invasive Treatment of Morton’s Neuroma
Individuals with Morton’s neuroma are strongly advised to wear appropriate footwear. The pain of this condition is likely to be of greater intensity when an individual wears tight or otherwise ill-fitting shoes. Wearing shoes with a wider toe-box can aid in lessening the pain of this condition by providing more room for the toes and prevent rubbing of the feet. High-heeled shoes are likely to worsen the pain of Morton’s neuroma. Shoes with heels over 5 cm in height and those with pointed toes should therefore be avoided at all costs.
Engaging in exercise can worsen the symptoms of Morton’s neuroma. This is particularly true of sports that involve running. Individuals with Morton’s neuroma may therefore be advised to try sports that don’t place considerable pressure on their feet.
It has been our experience that providing appropriate metetarsal support, like the Birkenstock Blue Footbed, may help to alleviate the symptoms. We also recommend the Kenkoh Health Massage Sandal to ease the stress in your feet and help to restore normal function to the affected area.
