Dallas, TX — Summer means letting your feet see the light of day in those comfy—but flimsy—flip-flops. Summer also means your feet will begin to protest the lack of support your favorite flip-flops offer.

“Reflexology is a great way to heal your heels,” said CG Funk, Vice President of Product Development for Massage Envy, the leading provider of massage therapy in the U.S. “When you go in for your next massage, ask your therapist to pay special attention to your feet. Regular massages keep the feet supple, flexible and in top shape.”

The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these tips on keeping your feet pain-free:

Do daily gentle calf stretches for 20 to 30 seconds on each leg. While barefoot, lean forward toward a wall with one foot forward and one foot back.

• Wear comfortable, supportive shoes when you anticipate a long day of walking or standing.
• Replace your shoes regularly.
• Avoid walking barefoot on hard or uneven surfaces.
• Break in new shoes before walking in them for long distances.

At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is just $39. Memberships are available for $49 per month and include a one-hour massage session. Members may also enjoy unlimited additional one-hour massage sessions at the $39 member rate.
