Traditional foot soaks are inspired by the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that recognizes that if the human body were a tree, the head is the branch, the body is the trunk, & the feet are the roots.
We offer two different foot soak treatments. Each one contains over 6 different organic Chinese herbs long known to offer the desired healing benefits for:
Rest and Relaxation with our SLUMBER SOAK
Arthritis and pain with out ACHES AWAY SOAK
A session lasts for 45 minutes and involves first heating your feet for 15 minutes on a specially heated Himalayan Salt Lamp made for feet. This is like having an expensive paraffin wax treatment but without the high cost or the toxic petrochemicals.
Then you will be placing your feet in a warm foot bath for 30 minutes which stimulates the meridians in the feet to absorb and transfer the medicinal benefits of the healing herbs along with our Magic Salts (same salt used in our float spas).
Sleep is the foundation of health and wellbeing as it is during sleep that our bodies can heal, regenerate and renew. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda (the traditional healing of India) both consider sleep to be an essential aspect of overall health, with disruptions in sleep being seen as a reflection of imbalances in the body's energy flow.
Slumber Soak could be considered for:
To correct these imbalances, one method is to utilize the meridians in the feet that are believed to be connected to various organs and systems in the body, including those involved in sleep regulation.
A foot soak or foot bath can be used to stimulate the meridians in the feet to support healthy sleep patterns by encouraging the flow of energy to these areas of the body and putting the body into harmony.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), arthritis and joint pain are viewed as a result of an imbalance in the body's energy or Qi (pronounced "chee"). According to TCM principles, the body's Qi flows through meridians or channels that connect the internal organs and various parts of the body, including the joints. When the Qi is flowing smoothly, the body is in a state of balance and harmony, but if there is an obstruction or blockage in the flow of Qi, it can lead to pain and inflammation.
TCM practitioners believe that arthritis and joint pain are caused by a combination of external and internal factors, including exposure to cold and dampness, poor diet, and emotional stress. These factors can lead to an accumulation of Qi stagnation or dampness in the joints, which can cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
To correct these imbalances, one method is to utilize the meridians in the feet that are believed to be connected to various organs and systems in the body, including those involved with joint and muscle issues.. A foot soak or foot bath can be used to stimulate the meridians in the feet to support address arthritis. The traditional herbs used in footbaths, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and reduce arthritis symptoms in the joints.
