Have you got cold feet? I’m not talking about loss of nerve or confidence that we call “getting cold feet”. I’m talking about the kind of feet that are so cold you want to hold them against the radiator, wrap your feet around a cup of coffee, or toast your tootsies by the bonfire, even in the middle of summer (with marshmallows on the side, of course). You know…the kind of cold feet that your partner insists you keep on your own side of the bed! Even when you wear two or three layers of socks, your feet are still cold as ice cubes.
There are many causes of cold feet including anemia, lack of circulation, prescription med side effects, hypothyroidism, and sedentary lifestyles. Cold feet can be a symptom of conditions such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Raynauds, and arteriorsclerosis. You’ve tried sock layers, wools socks and therapy socks. You’ve tried medicated creams, essential oil rubs, or paprika emollients. But have you tried Bowen therapy? As a side effect of receiving Bowen therapy for other complaints, many clients notice their feet are warmer. But there are also Bowen procedures specifically for cold feet, with improvements felt after just one or two sessions, and often during the first session! (Bowen is a body therapy that uses small, gentle moves on soft tissue. Small moves…profound results!)
