As reflexology shows, your entire body is represented by and connected to your feet, meaning that caring for and nurturing that part of your body can bring health and wellbeing to all of your limbs and organs. Here are just a few health benefits that result when you immerse your feet in a relaxing hot water bath.
Foot Bath: Warms the Blood... And the Soul
Footbaths increase your overall body temperature, which can relieve muscle and mental tension, alleviate stress and increase white blood cell activity. All of this boosts your immune system, which prevents sickness and increases your overall health and wellbeing.
Believe it or not, hot water foot soaks have the power to alleviate pain in other parts of the body besides just the feet. Some of the conditions footbaths have the ability to help include headaches, toothaches, pelvic pain and pelvic inflammatory disease, liver problems, cramps, prostate problems, hemorrhoids, joint and rheumatic aches and pains, excessive perspiration, chest congestion and cold and flu symptoms like cough, nausea and chills.
A Foot Soak Increases Circulation
Soaking and cleansing your feet in hot water reduces inflammation and stimulates circulation, bringing congested blood to the dilated vessels in the feet and lower legs.
Foot scrubs can be used to rejuvenate the feet, enhance their look and feel, and even relieve pressure and pain. They can relieve tired, achy feet and help to remove dead skin while also nourishing the skin with natural ingredients. The most important part of a good exfoliating foot scrub is the exfoliating ingredient. Some types include salt, sugar, and essential oils.
Give your feet that extra dose of luxury they deserve. The treatment may be available on their own or used in conjunction with your other favorite treatment for an incredibly relaxing, pampering treat for your feet and your entire body. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
