Bathing in Epson Salt Does More Than You Know

August 21, 2010
One of the great joys of being a reflexologist is being out in Portland meeting other alternative health care providers.  Recently I met up with Karin Edwards, a ROLFER. Besides being fascinated by feet, we also discovered we both encourage clients to take hot Epson Salt baths after a treatment. Two cups of Epsom Salt in the tub does wonders calming the nerves and pulling toxins from one’s system. 
According to the Epson Salt Council, epson salt is a compound made of magnisum
and sulfer.  And studies show that the benefits from Epson Salt may be:
  • Ease stress and improves sleep and concentration
  • Help muscles and nerves function properly
  • Regulate activity of 325+ enzymes
  • Help prevent artery hardening and blood clots
  • Make insulin more effective
  • Reduce inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps
  • Improve oxygen use
  • Flush toxins
  • Improve absorption of nutrients
  • Help form joint proteins, brain tissue and mucin proteins
  • Help prevent or ease migraine headaches
