The first step in your treatment is a warm Tibetan herbal soak with more than 12 different herbs and flowers. The herbs mixture is a product of mainland China. The foot soak is not figured into the timing of your foot treatment. We offer a premium service that substitutes a product from China known as Crystal Mud. Crystal Mud is a mixture of the 6 leading herbs in Chinese Medicine known to be detox agents. In addition, dryed rose petals from China are added to the foot soak. Like the Tibetan herbal soak, the Crystal Mud is not figured into the timing of your foot treatment. Both soaks will relax your feet. Traditional Chinese Medicine suggests that sensation of relaxation will travel throughout th body as all nerves of the body are connected to the feet.
Better known as reflexology. Chinese foot care is based on the art and science of reflexology. Your foot care specialist is both a technician and an artist in that he/she must have the technical knowledge to know what pressure points affect the body. Pain associated with reflexology is seldom the specialist pressing too hard but rather an indication that part of the body is not healthy or has suffered a recent injury. Your specialist has the training to know how and where to apply pressure to bring relief both to the foot and the body. Your specialist is an artist in that the method of applying pressure is never the same. Often a person will fall into a deep sleep while receiving pressure treatment. Much like an artist, each specialist has his or her own technique that is a personal signature. This is why so many people who enjoy Chinese foot care return and ask for the same person each time.
Balance & Energy
If reflexology were the Ying of Chinese foot care, the foot and leg balance is the Yang of Chinese foot care. Your foot care specialist is restoring balance and energy to your body as he treats your feet and legs using different types of motions. Through a combination of long and short rubs your feet and legs will feel as if they are floating. Foot and leg pressure is being absorbed by the motion resulting in a final sense of wholeness. Not only do your feet feel refreshed but as you tune into your body you will discover that every part of your body feels a sense of relief as well. The use of motion increases your blood flow which in return restores the inner air of the body.
