Pain relief. Dr MAHLON Locke

THE FOOT

strengthen your feet, help prevent pain, and improve your balance.

Dr Mahlon Locke was a Canadian physician who attracted international attention in the 1930's with an unusual therapy. Through a process of foot manipulation, popularly known as "toe-twisting," Locke seemed able to relieve many intractable cases of arthritis as well as a variety of related afflictions. Sufferers flocked to his clinic in Williamsburg, Ontario and, at the height of his fame, he was tending literally hundreds of people each day.

Dr Locke's interest in foot manipulation began during his Edinburgh days.

The foot is a 'map' of the entire body. No Muscle, no gland, no organ whether internal or external is without a set of nerves whose opposite ends are anchored in the foot.
And what does this mean? Simply that when we massage the foot we stimulate and effect all the rest of the body as well.



Pain relief. FOOT BACK XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Back knee and hip pain

It all starts from the ground up. Your feet might not seem like significant contributors to your overall health. However, when it comes to the external aspects of your body, there is no harder working part than your feet. They keep you moving, and if you take proper care of them, your feet will prevent back knee and hip pain.

Ankle mobility and flexibility are extremely important. Ankle’s that are tight and restricted often causes the rest of the body to compensate for their flaws, which results in muscle and joint pain throughout the body. If your ankles are tight you might experience hip, back or knee pain.

Like any body part, the feet need to have their muscles warmed up properly before engaging in exercise. Toe exercises are a great low impact warm up for your feet, and, the movement can be quite relaxing.

Pain relief. FOOT SOAK

The difference

During a foot massage treatment your feet benefit from a seaweed and Epsom salt foot soak.

  • While we know the seaweeds purify and maintain the ecological balance of the ocean.
  • Did you know they can perform the same purification process on your body?
    The rejuvenating effects of eliminating toxins from the body can refresh us physically and mentally.

    A unique experience.



  • Experts say Epsom salt helps detoxify

    Epsom salt is a pure mineral compound (magnesium sulfate) in crystal form that gently exfoliates skin and smoothes rough patches.
    The fact that Epsom salt is actually magnesium sulfate also has many health benefits, according to doctors and researchers, because when you soak in Epsom salt, the magnesium sulfate is absorbed through your skin.

    Seaweed

    The U.K.’s first and only seaweed shop with over 100 seaweed products is now opened in Isle of Bute, Rothesay, Scotland. Purchase fresh or dried seaweed from www.justseaweed.com

    We all know the seaweeds purify and maintain the ecological balance of the ocean. They can perform the same purification process on your body too.

    The rejuvenating effects of eliminating toxins from the body can refresh us physically and mentally.
    A seaweed foot bath can create an invigorating effect by balancing the vital ingredients that constitute the body’s chemical structure. They are also highly recommended for treatment of psoriasis and eczema. I have been using seaweeds since I first discovered in Ireland ten years ago.



    Pain relief. NEW SEAWEDD777777

    Seaweed benefits

    The minerals and trace elements released by seaweed in hot water are absorbed through the skin, through a process called osmosis. Minerals are very important to vitalize body cells. However minerals cannot be produced or restored inside of the body. Seaweed powder enables the body to replenish essential revitalizing natural elements and mineral salts. Seaweed contains mineral salts that can help the skin to hold its moisture better, which helps to smooth fine lines.

    Countries such as France, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Greece have facilities known as thalassotherapy spas (loosely translated from the original Greek word as ‘sea therapy’). They provide relief to thousands of tourists who visit these countries every year specifically to get benefit from these natural spas. The presence of sea weed, such as bladder wrack and kelp, help in conditions such as psoriasis and the detoxification of the body by opening up the pores, ejecting toxins, accumulated grime and dirt from the skins layers.
