I remember when I was growing up my Mami would soak her feet in hot water and Epson salt because she said it was good for you. Well she may have been on to something, soaks are said to decrease inflammation, increase circulation and relieve foot stress. I soak my feet when I'm "breaking in" new shoes, have been wearing heels all week or after a night out. After soaking, my feet do feel less sore and are less swollen. You can take it up a notch and add some marbles or rocks - sliding your feet back and forth for an added massage. You may even add an essential oil to the water for an even more relaxing experience; you can try lavender, eucalyptus or mint.
1 - You will need a small tub, bucket (big enough to fit your feet)
2 - Fill it with enough hot water (as hot as you can stand it) to cover your feet
3 - Add Epson salt, marbles/rocks and any essential oils
4 - Relax and soak your footsies for about 30 mins
