Product Review: Dr Kong Healthy Shoe

There is an old adage that says “Better health starts at your feet!”.

If your feet started to hurt, it maybe trying to tell us something is not right. As I Google-d for answers, I am astonished to learn that our foot consist of 72,000 nerve endings, reflex areas and points of the foot that correspond to various organs and glands of the body.

Phew! That is why I literally jumped at the opportunity when I am invited for free foot screening at the renowned Dr Kong that specializes on foot and spine health. Better yet, I brought along my 6 years old daughter for the screening too. It’s not too early to start them young 🙂
