There are many benefits to walking along the beach. Not only can it be romantic and relaxing, but it is great for your feet too! The soles of your feet have over 200,000 nerve endings and walking barefoot in the sand stimulates them. Taking a stroll while barefoot in the sand also helps to strengthen and stretch tendons, muscles and ligaments in your feet.
Being barefoot in the sand grounds you. The Earth maintains a negative electrical charge. Walking barefoot grounds our bodies to that charge. Studies have shown that negative Ions can improve blood pressure, blood flow, increase energy and reduce inflammation along with many other positive benefits. So come get grounded with us at the Ocean Plaza Ocean Front Hotel where you will have direct access to the beach.
