This practice will complement much medical care prescribed by your physician.
WarmFeet® is a complementary intervention, all natural, no pharmaceuticals are used. YOU are the one in charge of learning and practicing this technique for your own health and well-being.
What is WarmFeet® ?
It is a standardized relaxation technique designed to take advantage of the body's natural relaxation response, which dilates the peripheral blood vessels and improves circulation in the hands and feet.
1. Learning to relax is the first step of the Circulation Meditation: The guided relaxation recording prompts the client to release tension through conscious muscle relaxation and breathing. Breathing out (exhaling) is the relaxing part of the breathing rhythm.
2. The second step involves visualization, in which a person imagines comfort or warmth around his feet. Visualization, or forming a mental image, is often used in stress reduction and self-healing and has played a successful role in the treatment of various illnesses. It is particularly effective to use when the body is in a relaxed state.
"Thinking warm" allows the feet to feel even warmer or more at ease. Your body knows what "warm" feels like and the increased skin temperature will follow. Healthy outcomes or desired healing can also be visualized. Remembering the beauty and strength of the legs and feet at an earlier age is another very encouraging and powerful image. The WarmFeet® recording suggests various images that can be used during the visualization portion of the meditation session.
