Soaking your feet in a bath of hot water does more than just relax and soothe your body; research has shown that foot soaks also have the power to increase circulation, reducesinflammation, fight fatigue, calm and energize at the same time, as it softens and beautifies the feet.

Ultimate relaxation may be one of the most obvious health benefits of foot soaks, but research shows that soaking your feet in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes per day can do wonders for your mood, your energy level, your sleeping habits and any aches and pains that affect you — both in your feet and beyond. 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 your whole body!

Laura will be offering Mineral Foot Baths at the People Shine Mind-Body-Spirit Holistic Fair - $25 for 25 minutes.

Benefits of Mineral Foot Bath

Here are just a few health benefits that result when you immerse your feet in a relaxing hot water bath.

Footbaths increase your overall body temperature, which can relieve muscle and mental tension, alleviate stress and increase white blood cell activity. All of this can boost your immune system, which may prevent sickness and increases your overall health and wellbeing.
Epsom salt, in particular, is easily absorbed by the skin and replenishes your body’s level of magnesium ions, which do several things to your body. These include boosting serotonin (a mood-elevating chemical in the brain), increasing energy and stamina, decreasing irritability and adrenaline, lowering blood pressure, increasing concentration and improving sleeping habits. In addition, Epsom salt has the ability to eliminate foot odors and foot fungus, as well as help heal ingrown toenails.

Footbaths are naturally soothing, and just one foot soak has the power to calm the mind and the body into a state of relaxed bliss. This improves cognitive function, helps boost creativity and work habits, leads to better sleep and improves your overall mood. Adding aromatherapy or essential oils to your foot bath can increase these health benefits, leading to ultimate tranquility and a wholly satisfying way to unwind after a stressful day.
