Why apply it to the soles of the feet? According to Chinese medical knowledge, our human body has over 360 acupuncture points, with more than 60 acupuncture points found on the soles of the foot. Known as the second heart? they are the reflective zones of our major internal organs, they are also potential homes for toxins. When the blood circulates to the soles, the Foot Patch sachet can absorb toxins released from the acupuncture points. The Foot Patch comes in a white sachet that is applied to the soles of the feet. After only one night of body detox, there may be significant changes to the smell and color of the sachet (from brown to grayish black) as it reflects the amount and degree of toxins which were extracted from the body. With continuous usage, there should be a visible reduction in the stain and odor of the sachet.
How to use the foot Patch:
1/ Remove the larger piece from the adhesive sheet and discard. Place the side of the pad that has the wording onto the adhesive plaster.
2/ Place the Foot Patch onto its center, making sure that the writing on the sachets is facing down toward the adhesive surface.
3/ Stick and spread firmly onto the sole of your foot. For best results, put them on some time before bedtime, you can wear them around the house if you sleep less than 8 hours.
4/ Allow 8 to 12 hours for toxins to be fully absorbed from your body before removing the Foot Patches. They can be used on other parts of the body where you feel pain.
The pads may feel warm after you have put them on. During the night the pads will become dark in color as they absorb toxins and waste matter from your body. They may also become sticky depending on the levels of toxins present. Wear the pads for at least 8 hours a night for maximum effect. The more toxins you have in your body the darker the patch will be when removed. With continued use the pads will become lighter. You may detox in a few days or take longer depending on the state your body is in! When the pad is pale your body is pure.
1/ Foot Patches work best when placed on the soles of the feet.
2/ They can be used any time but it is preferable overnight as you sleep. Socks worn over the foot patches can help prevent kicking them off during the night.
Additional Note: The Foot Patch should not be placed over open wounds, mucous membranes, or around the eye area. The Foot Patch can however be very effectively placed over other areas of the body where you are experiencing pain, discomfort or swelling. When using on any area where the skin is naturally moist, oily, curvy or prone to motion; it will help to use some form of adhesive tape or similar product (like band-aids or medical tape) to better ensure optimal contact of the Takara Foot Patches with the skin. Additionally, the non-foil backing of the patches ensures the potency and effectiveness of the ingredients, to maximize your cleansing experience.
