Foot Soaks

Our talented massage therapists and esthtician have curated custom footsoaks to bring balance and well being to your life.

Ultimate relaxation may be one of the most obvious health benefits of foot soaks, but research shows that soaking your feet in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes per day can do wonders for your mood, your energy level, your sleeping habits and any aches and pains that affect you — both in your feet and beyond. 

Coconut Ultra Hydrating Foot Treatment

 

For those who need the rich, firming hydration of coconut, try this very emollient treatment… We start with a Pink Himalayan sea salt soak with lime essential oils, reminiscent of a Caribbean vacation. While you soak, we apply Eminence Coconut Firming Body Lotion into your arms and hands. Then we exfoliate your soles with their sugar scrub, apply a rich masque to your feet, and wrap them in a hot towel for ultimate absorption. Then you can really relax as you receive either massage on your lower legs and feet with coconut oil, or reflexology, ending your session with hot stones between your toes.

Mangosteen Rejuvenating Foot Treatment

 

For a gentle resurfacing and pore-refining treatment, the lactic acid in Mangosteen Pro-Peel will expose the beautiful skin under any sun damage. We start with a French Grey sea salt soak with wild orange essential oils, taking your senses to a summer citrus orchard. While you soak, we apply Mangosteen Hand Crème to your arms and hands. Then we exfoliate your soles with your choice of a lava pumice stone or a sea salt scrub. Next we apply the resurfacing peel to your feet and wrap them in a hot towel. Afterwards, we invite you to stretch out as we apply the nourishing body lotion to your legs and feet, and either perform massage or reflexology… ending your session with hot stones between your toes.

Stone Crop Nourishing Foot Treatment

 

Great for every skin type, but especially effective for lightening blemishes or for sun-freckled skin. We start with a French Grey sea salt soak with eucalyptus essential oils, evoking a visit to the Aussie coast. While you soak, we apply Eminence Stone Crop Hydrating Lotion into your arms and hands. Then we exfoliate your soles with their revitalizing body scrub, apply their cooling masque to your feet, and wrap them in a hot towel. Then you can really relax as you receive either a foot massage with Stone Crop body oil, or reflexology on your feet, ending your session with hot stones between your toes.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands). Reflexology is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress.

The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.

Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. 

In the 1890s, British scientists found that nerves connect the skin and internal organs. They also found that the body’s entire nervous system tends to adjust to outside factors, including touch.

A reflexologist’s touch may help to calm the central nervous system, promoting relaxation and other benefits just like any form of massage.

Others believe that the brain creates pain as a subjective experience. Sometimes, the brain reacts to physical pain. But in other cases, it may create pain in response to emotional or mental distress.

Some believe that reflexology can reduce pain through calming touch, which may help to improve someone’s mood and reduce stress.

Zone theory is another belief that some use to explain how reflexology works. This theory holds that the body contains 10 vertical zones. Each zone contains different body parts and corresponds to specific fingers and toes.

Practitioners of the zone theory believe that touching these fingers and toes allows them to access every body part in a particular zone.

A Foot Soak Increases Circulation

Soaking and cleansing your feet in hot water reduces inflammation and stimulates circulation, bringing congested blood to the dilated vessels in the feet and lower legs.

 

Bathing Your Feet Fights Fatigue

It may sound counterintuitive that footbaths could be both calming and energizing at the same time, but they do have the magic to simultaneously soothe and awaken the body. For added strength, try including Epsom salt in your foot soak. Epsom salt is easily absorbed by the skin and replenishes your body’s level of magnesium ions, which do several things to your body. These include boosting serotonin (a mood-elevating chemical in the brain), increasing energy and stamina, decreasing irritability and adrenaline, lowering blood pressure, increasing concentration and improving sleeping habits. In addition, Epsom salt has the ability to eliminate foot odors and foot fungus, as well as help heal ingrown toenails.

 

Eliminates Toxins

Some experts believe that foot soaks containing bentonite clay and certain salts and minerals have the power to detox the body through a process called reverse osmosis, which pulls salt and harmful toxins from your body. Ionic foot soaks, which use water charged with positive and negative ions, are also said to be detoxifying. Whether or not these types of footbaths actually assist in detoxification remains under debate, but some people swear by them and insist they offer several benefits to overall health and wellbeing.  

Reduces Depression and Anxiety

Footbaths have been thought to help with depression as they can decrease and/or completely eliminate tension, anger, confusion, hostility and anxiety.

Softens and Beautifies The Feet

Anyone who’s had a pedicure knows that an essential step in the cosmetic process is soaking the feet in warm water. This helps reduce the presence and appearance of typical foot problems like calluses, corns and dry, flaky skin.

Stamps Out Stress

Footbaths are naturally soothing, and just one foot soak has the power to calm the mind and the body into a state of relaxed bliss. This improves cognitive function, helps boost creativity and work habits, leads to better sleep and improves your overall mood. Adding aromatherapy or essential oils to your foot bath can increase these health benefits, leading to ultimate tranquility and a wholly satisfying way to unwind after a stressful day.
