Did you know that, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), 77% of Americans experience foot pain? Half of the adults surveyed admitted that the pain has been severe enough to limit their activities. With HIMSS around the corner--and all the walking that an event like that involves--we decided to give your feet a break. Every day, we will be providing a limited number of complimentary foot massages at our booth, #7739.
"The people who attend HIMSS are making huge strides in improving the state of healthcare in the United States," Ben Weber, our Managing Director, explained. "As they seek ways to better care for our citizens, we wanted to provide them with care, as well."
More and more studies suggest that massage offers long-term health benefits, but few people needed research to prove that even a short foot rub can be relaxing. Stephanie Wallace, the Eastern Regional Manager, Healthcare IT Practice, agrees:
"People like to joke that I get a 'vacation' when I travel for work--but at HIMSS this year, I may actually get to put my feet up for a few minutes!"
If you'll be at HIMSS this April, be sure to stop by the Greythorn booth (#7739) to enjoy a quick Shiatsu foot massage.
