ARTHRITIS AND PAIN RELIEF

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), arthritis and joint pain are viewed as a result of an imbalance in the body's energy or Qi (pronounced "chee"). According to TCM principles, the body's Qi flows through meridians or channels that connect the internal organs and various parts of the body, including the joints. When the Qi is flowing smoothly, the body is in a state of balance and harmony, but if there is an obstruction or blockage in the flow of Qi, it can lead to pain and inflammation.

 

TCM practitioners believe that arthritis and joint pain are caused by a combination of external and internal factors, including exposure to cold and dampness, poor diet, and emotional stress. These factors can lead to an accumulation of Qi stagnation or dampness in the joints, which can cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation.

To correct these imbalances, one method is to utilize the meridians in the feet that are believed to be connected to various organs and systems in the body, including those involved with joint and muscle issues..   A foot soak or foot bath can be used to stimulate the meridians in the feet to support  address arthritis. The traditional herbs used in footbaths, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and reduce arthritis symptoms in the joints.

 

Each package of Aches Away Soak by Traditional Foot Soaks contain two 2 oz. packets for 2 treatments.
