Foot soaking is an important part of meditation and it has been recommended that anyone serious about progressing in meditation should foot soak every night.
This simple routine is one of the single most powerful methods we can use to help our meditation, and most people when they try it report amazing results in that they sleep better and awake more refreshed in every way.
Get a bowl, and keep it exclusively for foot soaking. A plastic bowl will do. Fill it with enough lukewarm water to cover the ankles. Add a handful of salt and meditate in the evening with your feet in the water and hands palm upwards. Keep a jug of water and a towel beside you. After meditating, rinse your feet with the fresh water in the jug and dry your feet on the towel. Pour the water from the bowl into the WC and rinse the bowl with fresh water.
Those with excessive heat in the right side and liver can foot soak by putting only the right foot in a bowl of cold water. If you are keen you may like to try soaking the left foot in lukewarm water and the right foot in cold water.
