Symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome
- Tingling or irritating sensations
- A ‘creepy-crawly’ feeling
- Feeling of fizzy water in the legs
- Painful cramping in the legs
- An irresistible urge to move your legs
The above restless leg syndrome symptoms could be mild or severe; some people get these signs every day and others only occasionally. People with restless leg symptoms may also find it difficult to sit for a long period of time.
What Can Cause Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)?
If there is no clearly identifiable cause, then the condition is known as primary restless leg syndrome – often attributed to lower levels of dopamine in the brain.
Secondary restless leg syndrome can develop as a complication of other health conditions, including diabetes, Parkinson’s disease or iron deficiency anaemia, among others.
Treating Restless Leg Syndrome
Massage is a common way to get relief from the symptoms of restless legs syndrome. Massage improves circulation which helps increase the blood, oxygen and nutrition flow. Poor circulation is considered to be the major cause of restless leg syndrome, so regular leg massage is considered an effective RLS treatment.
Niagara’s NHC-Cyclo Therapy products can be a solution to get relief from restless leg syndrome symptoms. When applied to the legs, our unique therapy provides a deep penetrating massage effect that stimulates the skin and soft tissue blood circulation, which brings more oxygen and necessary nutrition to your legs. This increase in circulation provides effective relief from the symptoms of restless leg syndrome.

About Restless Leg Syndrome
What Is Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)?
Restless legs syndrome (RLS), also known as Willis-Ekbom disease (WED), is a common condition affecting the nervous system. It causes an overwhelming, irresistible urge to move the legs, and occasionally the arms.
Other symptoms include unpleasant feelings in the feet, calves, and thighs, which are often felt as a crawling or creeping sensation. These sensations tend to begin or worsen during periods of rest or inactivity, such as lying or sitting.
