Footbaths give feet a break from the daily monotony of walking to bus stops and drop-kicking unsolvable Rubik's cubes. Pamper paws with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 30-minute foot soak and 30-minute far infrared ozone sauna session at Naturopathic Therapies (an $80 value).
Owner Gayle Mays and her staff at Naturopathic Therapies aim to escort patients to better health with an array of alternative detoxifying treatments. During the half-hour BEST energy foot soak, feet bathe in bioelectrically charged water, which works to deliver energy to cells and coded messages to the White House. As energy soaks in, toxins depart, potentially easing ailments such as arthritis, fatigue, and headaches. A 30-minute sweat session in the far infrared ozone sauna helps to improve circulation, relieve pain, flush out toxins, and quicken metabolism. Some sauna-sitters can burn up to 600 calories as the warm light penetrates the skin in an attempt to liquefy fatty tissues and any nearby ice castles.
