What are the Precautions for Foot Bathing?

Dec. 19, 2020

As a Hydro Foot Massager Supplier, share it with everyone.

1. The water temperature should not be too high

①In life, some people are used to soak their feet in hot water and think that the higher the water temperature, the better the effect. In fact, the foot bath should not be too hot, and the appropriate temperature is around 40°C. If the water temperature is too high, the blood vessels in the feet are prone to over-dilation, and the blood in the body flows more to the lower extremities. For people suffering from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, it is tantamount to worsening the situation.

② Too high water temperature can easily damage the sebum film on the surface of the skin of the feet, causing the stratum corneum to become dry or even chapped.

2. The time should not be too long

① It is best not to soak your feet for more than half an hour each time, because the blood circulation and heart rate of the human body will increase when the feet are soaked, and too long will increase the burden on the heart.

②Because blood will flow to the lower extremities, some people may feel dizzy due to insufficient blood supply to the brain. Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and the elderly should pay special attention.

3. Be sure to test the temperature by hand

When soaking your feet, if you are not sure about the temperature of the water, it is recommended to try it with your hands instead of your feet, because your hands are more sensitive to temperature than your feet. For patients with diabetic feet, use a thermometer to measure the temperature when washing the feet to avoid burns.

4. Cooperate with foot massage

Soaking your feet with hot water before going to bed is especially suitable for cold syndromes, such as coldness, cold hands and feet, chronic diarrhea, dysmenorrhea, coronary heart disease, and difficulty urinating. After soaking your feet, you can also massage the reflex areas related to the soles of the feet, such as chronic prostatitis or prostatic hyperplasia, massage the prostate and urethra reflex areas.
