How to use:
Once you have the medicinal sachet here is how to proceed.
- Choose a basin. You need a container large enough to accommodate both your feet and deep enough to cover your ankle bones. A Tupperware dishpan works well. An electric foot spa is ideal. I personally like the cedarwood foot soak tub. It is more insulated, and help keeps the heat in the tub.
- Prepare the medicinal infusion to proper soaking temperature. Bring 2 quarts of water (if you are using a foot spa or large bucket) to a boil in a large pot. Place one or two medical sachets into the pot (as directed by your acupuncturist or doctor), turn the heat down to low, cover the pot, and simmer gently for 30 minutes.If you have electric kettles, place hot water (2 quartz) and 1 or 2 medicinal sachet in the basin. The water temperature is usually about 175 degrees. Let it steep for 30 minutes.
- Reduce the infusion to proper soaking temperature. Add 4 quarts of room temperature water (if using a dishpan) or 7 quarts of room temperature water (if using a foot spa or large bucket) to your basin. Add the hot infusion to the water in the basin and stir thoroughly.
- Confirm the soak temperature is between 105-112 degrees using instant-read kitchen thermometer or a digital thermometer. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IF THE SENSATION IN YOUR EXTERMITIES IS IMPAIRED BY NEUROPATHY OR ANOTHER CONDITION. The ideal soaking temperature is between 110-112 degrees. Many people find this temperature uncomfortable hot when they first start soaking, however. It is ok to work up to this temperature gradually.
- Sit down and soak. Choose a place where you will not be exposed to drafts and where you can sit quietly without disruptions. It is best to avoid watching TV or using a phone or computer while soaking. Use the time to meditate, pray, listen to relaxing music or have a pleasant conversation.
- Maintain the soak temperature. It is important to maintain the soak temperature in the therapeutic range of 105-112 degrees for the duration of the soak (30-45 minutes). The easiest way to do this is to use an electric kettle to add small amounts of boiling water to the soaking basin every 5-10 minutes. REMOVE YOUR FEET FROM THE BASIN WHEN ADDING HOT WATER AND EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHILE USING THE ELECTRIC APPLIANCES AROUND WATER. ALWAYS CONFIRM THE SOAK TEMPURATURE IS BELOW 112 DEGREES BEFORE PUTTING FEET BACK IN THE SOAK. To keep the heat in you can also use a large towel or blanket and cover your legs over the basin.
