If your life looks anything like mine, pampering yourself is probably the eleventy-billionth thing on your mind. Let me guess – right after wiping the baseboards, right?
I get it, but here’s the thing: Those twinkle toes of yours are more valuable than you might think. Each foot contains about 7,200 nerve endings, which according to acupressure philosophy are connected to every organ system in the body.
If things are “getting on your nerves” often, maybe it’s time to soothe the 14,400 you walk on!
With this simple foot soak, you’ll increase circulation, soften your skin, soothe those sore feet, and nourish your soul. Now, slip into your proverbial terry cloth robe and meet my friend Becca, aka the Dabblist, who will guide you through the therapeutic art of foot baths.
A Foot Soak May Boost Serotonin Levels & Improve Sleep
Bonus fact: Adding epsom salts, as Becca suggests, may help to “produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation.
