Foot soak therapy includes minerals, herbs, essential oils & salts in a hydro foot bath utilizing trans-dermal absorption. Herbal foot therapy helps to replenish the body’s nutrients. It can also be targeted toward specific health concerns.
The application of medications to the skin to ease ailments is a practice that has been utilized by humankind over the millennia and has included the application of poultices, gels, ointments, creams, and pastes. These applications were primarily intended for a local topical effect. The skin absorbs chemicals from the environment, both healthy and unhealthy chemicals. Trans-dermal application of medications or other supplemental substances bypasses the metabolism step of oral supplementation and allows the compound to enter the peripheral circulation. The use of adhesive skin patches to deliver drugs systemically was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1979.
Trans-dermal absorption is a proven platform for supplemental interventions within the medical community. Herbal, vitamin and mineral foot baths provide a gentle, relaxing platform for trans-dermal absorption.
