LMT: You know? Your feet are severely tight.
Me: What do you mean “tight?”
LMT: There’s lots of tension in them, they’re wound up so tight, it made me work for my money!
Me: Was anything else tense or “tight?”
LMT: Nope, just your feet.
The massage was just heavenly. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad one, really. But now I’m wondering if I’m taking proper care of my feet. I mean, topically they’re nice and neat, I use lotion and pumice on them to keep them soft but it sounds like my muscles and tendons aren’t getting worked enough.
I remember when I worked for Dr. Martin, we had a patient who was an Orthopedic Surgeon and she said the best shoes I could wear were New Balance and if I worked on my feet all day, which I do, they should be replaced every three months.
I do that. Have done that religiously, since she told me, which was four years ago. It’s the only sneaker I wear. But now I’m wondering if somehow she could be wrong? I know everyone has their own opinion but she’s a surgeon that specializes in feet!
The LMT recommended a shoe that I can’t remember the name of, that actually molds to your foot and it’s supposed to give really good support. They cost about 120 dollars a pop. Which is fine because I NEED MY FEET. I won’t spare any expense if I can help it. But for the life of me, I can’t remember the name of them.
Does anyone know which shoe she’s talking about? Email me or leave a comment.
Ya’ll have a good weekend. I’ve got lots of beer to drink.
