Queenpin is offering a new service starting March 4th: Herbal Foot Soaks. Its a new (old) way to take your herbs that is less yucky and more soothing. Foot soaks have been used traditionally for a long time as a way to boost your health and as an easy, pleasant way to utilize the healing properties of plants. We have been super impressed with a line of Tibetan Foot Soaks that we have been carrying for home-use, and now we will be offering it as a service; we will handle all the preparation and clean up.
The soaks are indicated for relieving pain, improving circulation, reducing stress and anxiety, healing old injuries, reducing scarring, and nerve dysfunction. Like all holistic care, their results are cumulative, and it works best using them multiple times a week for more acute or serious issues.
The herbs can be grouped into a few big categories:
Improving circulation: Sanguisorbae root & Mugwort
Reducing Pain: Tibetan Acori Calami & Noptergium incisium root
Boosting mood: Tibetan Saffron
Improving fluid metabolism: Ginger & Saphora root
And the soaks include minerals, like epsom salts, that relieve pain and improve muscle health.
The soaks will be available by appointment starting March 1st, Monday 3pm – 6pm and Friday 10am – 2pm. They will take about 40 min of your time, and are available in the Community Clinic.
If you are already enjoying a Private Acupuncture Package, you may use your package for foot soak sessions. Each session will count as half of a treatment, a $35 value. If you’d like to pay as you go, sessions will be $45.
