Field trip to Medi-Rub Massager

This past summer, our family visited the Medi-Rub Massager headquarters.  The Medi-Rub Massager is a device that is used to help people who suffer with leg cramps, blood flow, while strengthening the Plantar Fascia and improving reflexology.  This product is sold worldwide and is preferred by many doctors to help with diabetes and other related illnesses.  We were first introduced to this machine at our local Sam’s Club.  There, we all took turns testing the product out and found it to be very relaxing.  Our first time using the foot massager, we immediately felt tingling throughout our feet and legs.    We became fans.  When we found out that the machine was made locally, it only made sense to find out more about the product.  Our family drove to their office in San Clemente to tour their manufacturing processes.  The family field trip was very informative and eye opening.  We all saw how a small business impacts our local economy.  The owner, Yolanda Holly, gave us a personal
