YogaToes® Toe Stretchers — Yoga For Your Feet 

YogaToes® have revolutionized the way we care for our feet. YogaToes® provide simple and natural therapy for painful toes and achy feet. Fighting foot pain and toe deformities now could save you from health complications (and expensive surgeries) down the road.

Being in shoes or high heels all day can really take a toll on your feet. Luckily, by placing toes in a separated position, weakened muscles become more flexible and resilient. After using YogaToes® regularly, the joints in your toes should begin to realign as tissues become supple and strong again. Realignment and greater mobility are the main components in fending off pain as well as a variety of other conditions, including claw toes and hammer toes.
How YogaToes Work

YogaToes® toe stretchers work by spreading and exercising toes. The patented design of YogaToes® fits between, above and beneath toes to gently spread them apart and away from the balls of your feet – providing the same exercise you get when barefoot. All you do is put them on. YogaToes do the work while you relax. A vacation for your feet! 
We recommend starting slowly, only wearing YogaToes® for 10-15 minutes a day. Once that begins to feel comfortable, gradually work up to wearing YogaToes® at least 1 hour per day.

Bunion, Claw and Hammer Toes Treatment

Foot and toe problems can’t be looked at in isolation, and that’s why we invented YogaToes®. We introduced an important new concept to the world: preventative foot care. But many people wonder about specific foot problems; Bunions (and bunionettes), claw toes, hammer toe and Plantar Fasciitis always come up. And the answer is ‘yes’, Yoga Toes help prevent and treat this short list as well as a much longer one that wouldn’t fit on this page. Our toe stretchers get at the root cause of these conditions.
Tried, Tested, and Loved!

YogaToes® are meant to benefit most anyone — and indeed we’ve gotten positive feedback from diverse groups of people over the years: busy mothers, professionals who are on their feet all day, physical therapists, construction workers… you name it.
YogaToes® toe stretchers were featured on the The New Ricki Lake Show as a natural pain relief gadget and on The Today Show as a “fan favorite”.
Recently, we found out that the pop singer Sia is a big fan of our toe straighteners as well as many ballerinas in The Washington Ballet. Can you think of anyone who depends on their toes and feet more than a ballerina? We can’t. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t live with swollen and achy feet one more day. Instead, start having stronger and more beautiful feet with YogaToes®!

They hurt bad this morning! But I have to tell you, after running 2 hrs today they feel really good right now! 

I’m going to try for an hour if I feel discomfort, I will abort the test! 

 **Update** September 19th I haven’t worn the yoga toes in about 2 weeks and the plantar fasciitis flared up again so I will try and wear them a little tonight and tomorrow and see how it works! Not bad considering I am still doing 2 hrs of cardio a day!

Have they been helping my feet? Probably not! My heel still hurts! 

However; they have greatly cut down my foot sweating and odor from a full day’s work commuting hours back and forth from NJ to Manhattan! I actually wear these under my dress shoes and no one is the wiser! 

They are comfortable and soft! I would love to replace all my socks if only they were all solid black! I would do it in a heartbeat! 

Check these socks out if you have an active lifestyle! 

Ps I wear my socks inside out because they are much softer and the seams are on the outside, but that’s a different discussion! 

Go watch the movie Finding Forrester with Sean Connery and you will know why lol! 


Product Review: Nano X by Triggerpoint Performance 

  

I just received my Nano X Foot Roller! Stay tuned for my review!

It’s a little softer and more giving than I originally thought. But I really like it. The Mojo foot roller I previously reviewed is hard and unforgiving. It really hurts even if you do not have foot pain. This is comfortable, but still does the job. I have developed Plantar Fasciitis recently due to an Air Force pt test on their concrete running track (ridiculous to run on concrete! Banging the joints of their troops and shortening their careers, a clay track although more expensive would be beneficial and prolong careers) 

Anyway, I like the roller and have brought it to work to use under my desk while I work in hopes of allowing my foot to heal. Along with a pair of
