Over the weekend I was looking at soothing foot baths for sore feet. I ran across this website (linked below) that has 3 simple amazing ways to detox your body through your feet. I notice the ingredients are mainly in homes already. If they are not, your local store will carry them at a low cost. I did try the Salt Detox Bath and I really enjoyed it. I also added 10 Drops of Wintergreen, 10 Drops of Peppermint and 5 Drops of marjoram to the Salt Detox Bath. Click the link below to see how to detox the body through your feet. Be sure to try all three detoxes!
Back mouse is a term used for a painful nodule commonly found in the low back region. This little “mouse” can cause significant pain and discomfort.

So come see one of our massage therapist to help release your “mouse”. If you want to learn more about this condition you can follow the link below.
