The holiday season is full of traditions, and The Nutcracker is enjoyed by many families each year. The Lumiere Ballet presents this classic on December 21 and 22nd at the Maguire Theater at SUNY College in Old Westbury, NY. Enjoy the show, and give your feet a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the season.

Running errands, hosting parties, and coordinating family get-togethers is fun, but it can also take a toll on the feet. Beat the stress by taking care of your foundation. Start with a good pair of shoes--proper fit and support are key to feet that feel great. Stylish shoes that are unsupportive can lead to pain in your knees, hips, and lower back.

If there was ever a time for a foot massage, it’s now. Whether you employ your spouse to rub your tired feet, or you visit a local reflexologist or spa, you’ll enjoy all of the benefits of this self-imposed time out. Massage can increase blood circulation, stretch and strengthen tight muscles, and bring life back to tired, aching feet.

Looking for more holiday stress busters? Going for a brisk half-hour walk, delegating duties, taking the time to laugh, trying new things, and unplugging from technology are all great ways to recharge. If your holiday festivities have lost their sparkle due to nagging foot pain, contact Mark Gasparini, D.P.M. for expert diagnosis and treatment.
