Plantar Fasciitis x Mad Ritual

On the run from foot & heel pain? It could be plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. We use the plantar fascia pretty much any time our feet are moving.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by multiple factors including your foot structure, the shoes you wear, the type of surface you are walking on and of course, overuse.

Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include stabbing heel pain, tightness in the arch of your foot or a dull, constant ache in your feet. Many people feel the pain is worst in the morning when they first wakeup, so we recommend starting your day with a Mad Ritual foot massage and a few stretches.

Massage Ritual for Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief

STEP ONE: Massage your desired blend of Mad Ritual Relief Rub into your foot and heel. Starting at the ball of your foot, work down through the arch and around the heel. Continue up the back of the heel to your ankle. Then use your thumb to apply steady pressure along the top of your foot and each side.

STEP TWO: Begin stretching by rotating the foot in clockwise circles, then repeat in a counterclockwise direction. For added stretch, interlace your fingers between your toes and rest your palm on the ball of your foot as you rotate.

STEP THREE: Continue to stretch the arch of your foot by using a soup can, tennis ball or texture massage ball. If your arch feels particularly tender or stiff, begin with a cross-friction massage while sitting. Then increase the stretch by standing and applying pressure down onto your preferred rolling tool.

STEP FOUR: More stretching! Stair stretch and using a towel pulled across the ball of the foot are two of the most common moves recommended for plantar fasciitis.


STEP FIVE: Repeat daily to reduce inflammation in the plantar fascia and to improve flexibility. Strengthening exercises for the foot muscles including towel curls and toe taps can also help!
