plantar fasciitis pain relief chinese spoons

1. Ceramic Chinese Soup Spoons

Yes, you’re reading the correct list. Chinese soup spoons have been used for centuries to perform gua sha, a traditional Chinese medicine practice where a blunt tool is used to scrape skin as a manner of promoting blood flow, healing and repair. TLDR: This might be juuuust the right thing for anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis. To use, lather on some cream or oil to the bottom of your foot. Then, applying light pressure, stroke the blunt edge of the spoon from the top of your heel to your foot pad in vertical strokes, making sure not to cause any additional pain. (If you’re in more pain, stop.) Do the same thing horizontally across your foot. Ah, sweet relief.

All of my toes except my big toes are hammer toes that are so curled you can't even see the toenails. My podiatrist did not believe surgery would be beneficial to me, so I got these to help with the pain…I could not believe how much of a difference they made! Instantly, my pain was relieved.”
