foot stimulation is an effective (temporary) high

I get foot care every 4-5 weeks since I can't help myself safely now. The best thing is the "high" feeling while the therapist is working to massage on my feet after trimming the nails. I notice today my right hand tremor stopped completely while she was rubbing the instep of my right foot. Which leads me to why I wanted to post this mundane event news. Maybe the post about the electric foot stimulation device that Royprop and I made fun of a couple of weeks ago isn't reeally such a bad idea?

I try to have reflexology once a week for the same reason! You might think about trying that?

I ordered a warming/rolling foot massager thing on Wednesday. According to the package tracker app it wil arrive next Monday. Yay!

Hal, my foot guy is a very pleasant female. You'd be tickled by her and I suppose she would enjoy meeting you and taking your money. If you have a plan to be in East Texas, let me hear from you. :)

Fedex delivered the foot massaging thing this morning. I tried it to see if the thing effected my hand's tremor. The result was dramatic decrease and nearly immediate return of tremor when I turned it off. The body is a curious thing. Useless as a PD therapy since yoou can't walk around with it attached to your leg. But if you have a lot of writing to do sitting down I can see having your feet upon it to improve the legibility of your script.
