~ Ancient Chinese proverb

We eagerly look to our devices to see how many steps we’ve taken, but do we take care of the feet that take those steps?
Our feet carry the weight of our bodies some 1,500 times for every mile we walk. Each foot contains over 7,000 nerve endings, 107 ligaments, nineteen muscles and twenty-six bones (one fourth of all the bones in the body). For many people, feet are a low priority when it comes to the care and attention we give our bodies. And yet, they are our connection to the Earth. They are our foundation. All it takes is an irritation on the tiniest toe to give discomfort to our total being.
What Is Foot Soak Therapy?
Traditional Tibetan Foot soak therapy was passed from generation to generations for many years. It is a natural therapy and has the reputation of “green therapy.” People started using foot soak therapy to treat disease for about three thousand (3000) years ago, in the Yin-Shang period.
What Is The Mechanism Of Herbal Fook Soak Therapy?
Most people think of a foot bath as a superficial treatment, but this technique is a powerful medicine. The key is to treat the condition properly with the correct medicinal herbs and high water temperature. The herbal solution moves from the feet to the entire body along acupuncture channels and collaterals, which is capable of eliminating pathogenic influence. It balances Yin and Yang, as the blood circulating herbs become absorbed. Tibetan foot soaks can, detoxify, tonify, and diminish inflammation & refresh the body. The blood circulating effects of the herbs makes use of the heat in the basin, and the healing aspect of the herbs propagates deep level change on cells. This can regulate the nervous system, accelerate blood circulation and improve immunity.

What the Foot Soaks are NOT…
While the soaks are quite relaxing and enjoyable and have many health benefits, they are not a Spa treatment (even though it may feel like it). They are not in any way related to the ionic foot detoxes that are being marketed as ‘the next great thing’ and they are not simply essential oils in a tub of water.
What the Foot Soaks ARE…
The soaks are made from herbs grown in a remote area of Tibet. (See photos above). The herbs are special to the region as they grow naturally at altitudes that are still untouched and unaccessible by most of the world. Supply and access is limited and we feel blessed to be partnering with an amazing team of doctors and farmers who have cultivated these high quality medicinal herbs for use in our foot soaks for our patients at Vibrant Health Acupuncture & Wellness Center.
Clients who experience this therapy will feel very relaxed.
