If you, like me, enjoy long walks and runs but don’t enjoy the muscle fatigue that comes after, then you might just fall in love with OSIM‘s new uStiletto leg massager.
Yes, stilettos. The ultimate killer heels. They are a ubiquitous footwear on fashion runways of the world – and in many women’s shoe cabinet, might I add.
From ankle strap heels to platform heels, there are varying heights and styles to match all outfits. As fashion editors would say, heels give a boost to the height, accentuate the posture and make the wearer look and feel more confident.
You would have read widely that prolonged wearing of high heels can result in excess muscle fatigue and strain, a sore back, as well as stress on the knees, calves and feet.
The high heel habit not only causes your calf muscles to tighten and shorten over time, it can also lead to uneven weight distribution on the soles of the feet.
It becomes a love-hate relationship: love the looks, hate the aches.
I’m not in high heels all the time for work, but when I am, my legs almost always threaten to break up with me at 6pm – sometimes, earlier. For me, the soreness in my calf muscles and at the soles of my feet becomes more pronounced after a long run so, like my friends who swear by stilettos, I indulge in bi-weekly leg massage to soothe my achy legs.
But what’s even better is to invest in OSIM‘s latest leg massager uStiletto. I use the word “invest” loosely but here’s why it’s an investment of sorts.
Is this the most chio massager ever? There’s a reason why all these beautiful leggy ladies are smiling so radiantly. After a long day walking around in heels, OSIM’s new uStiletto leg massager provides them with the ultimate relief. The uStiletto is purpose-built with the modern heels-loving lady in mind. It is lightweight, portable and comes with five massage programme settings specially tailored to provide a soothing massage to relieve muscle aches and strains. It comes in three designs and will be exclusively available on Lazada.sg at a pre-sale price of S$439 (U.P. S$599) from 17 May till 23 May 2017 when you use Alvinology Promo Code <OSIMKOLga1ms9> upon check out at Lazada! #OSIMuStiletto #PerfectStiletto #OSIM
Pamper – Combination of gentle and comfortable massage techniques soothes discomfort arising from wearing stilettos – the perfect choice for users new to leg massage.
Relief – Emulating the agile kneading and pressing massage techniques of a professional masseur, this program relieves the tension accumulated on tired legs and ankles after a day of walking in stilettos.
Beauty – Intense airbag massage improves circulation and metabolism in the legs, reducing water retention, toning and tightening muscles, achieving healthier and beautiful legs.
Reflexology – For health and better well-being through foot reflexology; stimulates vital reflex points to enhance circulation and the curative effects of massage. For people who like stronger reflexology massage, such as high-heel wearers who have a regular massage regime. Strong reflexology massage helps improve metabolism for better well-being, giving you a healthy glow.
Sleep – Gentle and soothing, relaxes body and mind for a restful beauty sleep.
For each of the five settings, there are three speed-intensity settings for the airbags and rollers. There is also a “Warm Air” function for added relaxation of the muscles – very soothing in my experience. It’s like drinking iced water after a gruelling 10km run!
The massager also comes with built-in S-Tone Airbags – strategically positioned to massage your ankles, soles and calves separately. The airbag massage technique is said to effectively melt away the tension caused by wearing stilettos, relieving muscle aches and strains for lighter footsteps.
Another built-in feature are the S-Care Rollers. The reflex rollers are situated on the toes, ankles and arches of the feet, and are said to stimulate vital reflex points, relieving pressure that builds up in these areas while encouraging positive flow of energy throughout the body for enhanced overall health and well being.
When Alvin asked me along to OSIM‘s exclusive preview of the uStiletto leg massager, I was excited to find out what relief my legs could get after having several late nights at work – and in heels, nonetheless.
My favourite of the five settings is Reflexology. The pressure was just about right on my feet, ankles and calves. I opted to also turn on the “Warm Air” function for added relief because my feet and legs were painfully sore. To complete the experience and to balance the intensity, I switched to Sleep program for gentler strokes towards the end of this therapeutic session; it was definitely soothing and deeply relaxing.
If you would like to have your private leg master masseur, then OSIM uStiletto leg massager is what you may just need. Even if you are not in heels all the time, don’t be put off by the name – it’s great for anyone who regularly experiences leg soreness and aches. You can also share it with your man or even family members, though you might want to put on a pair of socks for hygiene purposes.
