On this page, you will find products that I love and use. Since clients often ask me what I would buy (WWLB) when we are discussing an issue they may have, the following is a compilation of these products.

And so, here we have….What Would Linda Buy?
PRODUCTS FOR FOOT PAIN:
As a massage therapist, I am on my feet all day. There’s a few things I love that help me alleviate the discomfort associated with being upright for long periods of time.
First off, these socks are fabulous. It’s a little bit like walking around after a professional pedicure with those foam rubber things they use, only much more comfortable. These socks have soft, comfortable toe separators. If they’re uncomfortable at first, you can work your way up to wearing them for longer periods of time. I usually wear them an hour or so every day, and when I take them off my feet feel so good they want to dance.
There are a lot of foot rollers out there, and I have tried many. This one, by far, is my favorite. I’ve had one like this for many years. It’s great…you can stash it under your desk at work if you choose, and roll your feet throughout the day without anyone knowing the difference. That is, of course, unless you are using it in a meeting, and are so blissed out from how good your feet feel as you’re rolling them that you’re not paying any attention to what others are saying.
One of my biggest complaints with most electric heating pads is they usually don’t stay put if I want heat on my back. You shift your body a little bit, and all of a sudden, instead of covering both shoulders, you’ve got the heating pad on your left hip. (It’s a pain in the butt that can’t be taken care of with a heating pad.)
Several years ago, one of my clients told me about this heating pad. It wraps around your neck, and has magnetic closures to hold it place. I bought one and love it. I can now lounge around after a long day, binge watch a few episodes of my current favorite show, with heat on may back, happily shifting away. It has a massage component to it as well, which personally I could care less about, as I prefer something more direct than a general vibration…but you might like it. Bonus points: It’s fuzzy and comes in fun colors, too!
Sometimes, I just can’t wait for my next massage. While I’d love to get one every day, reality is that would get super expensive, so they only happen once a week for me. There are days when I hurt, and wish I could easily dig into those sore spots on my back. While I may be good at giving others massage, working on myself is very unsatisfying. This lovely piece of self-care equipment is absolutely fabulous….While it’s designed for neck and back, which is where I use it the most, I find myself sometimes also using it on my legs and arms if I’ve got a sore spot.
