I am so thrilled to be one of a select group of acupuncture clinics from around the world to offer Tibetan Medicinal Foot Soak Therapy to people in Decatur and surrounding Atlanta communities. This herbal therapy is fantastic for issues like nerve pain, arthritis related pain, pain and inflammation caused by gut dysbiosis, plantar fasciitis, gout, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, some gynecological issues and endocrine disorders. They are also be great for endurance athletes recovering from big races or intense training. The herbs work by increasing microcirculation and reducing inflammation.
My personal experience with these herbs has been life changing. I was a runner. I loved to run in the woods. It was my “me time;” my time to reflect, to relax, to breathe. After an injury I developed this chronic hip pain that no modality, including years of physical therapy and a lot of acupuncture, could fully relieve. I finally gave up running as it was just too painful. Along came the Tibetan Medicinal Foot Soaks. I originally became interested in them because I treat a lot of neuropathy but decided I would do a few soaks myself so I could better guide patients in how to do them at home. A few soaks in I noticed I did not have any hip pain when walking. Interesting and novel. I am now slowly building up my running. No pain. I feel like a giddy kid in a candy store and I want to share that with any of you who have chronic pain.
The herbs are in a little bag that looks like a teabag. You put them in hot water above your ankles and soak for 30-45 minutes, keeping the water nice and hot. Easy peasy. The herbs are absorbed transdermally so they don’t interfere with any Western pharmaceuticals you might be taking. The herbs in this special formula are of the highest quality; they are typically reserved for the elite ruling class in China. You can get more information about the therapeutic properties of the herbs and their sourcing in this short podcast.
When are the medicinal foot soaks contraindicated? With anything that is made worse by increasing blood circulation such as metastatic cancer or acute infections.
This therapy is an easy, convenient and cost effective way for patients to take charge of their own health and healing. I know that herbs are powerful but I am really blown away at the effects these have had with my patients who have chronic pain or diabetic and other neuropathies. Interested? Patients must come in for a consult prior to purchasing the foot soaks so I can ensure safety and that the foot soaks would be effective for your condition.
