You’ve never truly had a foot rub until you’ve experienced a MyOmega™ massage. Why? Because MyOmega™ is packed with pain-relieving ingredients and natural anti-inflammatories that will make your toes swoon.

Warming Rub for Cold, Achy Feet

For a penetrating, warming massage, use MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream. If there’s a partner involved, prop their foot up on a pillow (preferably covered with a towel), and begin to massage MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream into their sole, toes and arch using circular motions. This will help stimulate circulation. Work from top to bottom and make sure to take your time with each stroke and not to go too quickly.

Next, massage MyOmega™ into the ankle and begin to slowly rotate the foot at the ankle. This will help loosen up joints and is excellent for arthritis relief. Once the ankle is limber, focus on the arch of the foot by pressing the heel of your hand against the bottom of the foot moving from the ball of the foot to the heel. The penetrating heat of MyOmega™ will accentuate the effects of the massage, so even if you’re not a trained masseuse, your partner will be very, very thankful.

An Invigorating Pick-Me Up Massage

This massage is recommended for athletes and those with hard-working feet in need of a revitalizing massage. For this particular massage you will need to use MyOmega™ Triple Strength Pain Relief Rub.

The initial tingle of Menthol & Camphor is guaranteed to make feet giddy. As you work your way from toes to sole, that little tingle will become a soothing blast of powerfully refreshing pain relief. Menthol “replaces” the pain sensation with a cooling, soothing one, distracting from sore muscles and allowing you to fully indulge in the simple (yet incredible) pleasure of a foot rub. Try it out on yourself or practice on a partner. You’ll never go back to regular lotion foot rubs again!

Heaven!

Heaven!

Get Fit with MyOmega™!

Ahhhhh, yes. The clouds are parting, the temperatures are rising, and the days are growing longer. This can only mean one thing… Bathing suit season is on its way. So just how are you supposed to get a beach-ready body after a sluggish, sedentary winter? Ease into it. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your workout.

Beach-Ready?

Beach-Ready?

1. Exercise regularly, but remember to GRADUALLY increase the difficulty of your routine. If you have a low activity level, start with 1-3 times a week. If you have a a moderate activity level, try kicking it up to 3-5 days a week. Most importantly, don’t overdo it. So many injuries can be avoided if we just listen to our bodies. While the inviting Spring weather may be beckoning you to run more miles than your body is accustomed to, you run the risk of stress fractures, pulled muscles and tendinitis, which can set you back to square one.

2. For most of us, exercise is just not enough. If you’re not willing to give up your favorite foods, here’s an easy way to cut down on calories without too much suffering. Watch your portions. This seems obvious, but most of the time we eat far more than our body actually requires. That’s because your brain does not register that you are “full” until 10 minutes after you have already exceeded your limit. Try taking a 10 minute break halfway between eating to see if you are still hungry. Don’t torture yourself by staring at your plate the whole time. Take this time to tidy up your kitchen, do some reading or call up a friend. It will occupy your mind and before you know it, your 10 minutes will be up. If you are still hungry after this time, eat a little more, and take another break. You’d be surprised on how easily you can satisfy your appetite with a little patience (and distraction).

3. Once you feel it’s time to bump up your mileage or add more weight to your routine, prepare for the inevitable muscle soreness and tightness. For some of us it can be unbearable, and we end up having to take such long breaks that we eventually plateau. The best way to help manage the normal pain that accompanies exercise is to try a topical analgesic like MyOmega™ Targeted Pain Relief Spray. This powerful, cooling formula relieves the pain associated with strains, sprains, muscle aches, cramps and tension. Simply spray directly onto painful areas for an invigorating burst of pain relief and you may just find yourself finishing that extra mile, swimming that extra lap, biking that extra stretch, or increasing your reps without the overwhelming obstacle of common soreness. As long as you remember to stay within your bodies realistic boundaries, MyOmega™ may just become your favorite new exercise companion

* Remember to consult with your doctor before starting a workout routine. Always make sure muscles are fully warmed up before starting any exercise. If any exercise causes pain or weakness at any stage during a workout then stop immediately.
