Epsom Salt, Joint Balm & Warming Herbal Foot Bath
Pào jiāo is a footbath that is recommended to do every night before bed. The ancient Chinese likened the way that trees protect their roots in the winter, man must protect his feet. “The feet are very important in health maintenance. The human body was compared to a tree, with the torso as the trunk, the arms the branches and the feet the roots,” says Jiang Zaifeng, director of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Health Department at the Bao Zhi Di Culture and Arts Salon. “It is said that a dying tree withers first in its roots, and an aging person first feels their health recede from the feet.” This is because there are many key Kidney acupoints on the bottom of the feet and ankles. The feet alone have 60 different acupuncture points; including Kidney, Urinary Bladder, Liver, Gallbladder, Spleen and Stomach meridians. Footbath warms these points and stimulates the Kidney organ system. After footbath, you can apply our Joint Balm to stimulate all of the channels, support the bones and keep energy flowing!
