Cold hands and feet
Hot and sweaty hands and feet
Aftereffects of stroke
Full body shiatsu can be used for all these conditions. Additionally a brisk body rub with a wet towel (either hot or cold whichever temperature that you prefer), loofa sponge or natural fiber brush will enhance circulation. It also provide an avenue for toxic material within the blood and lymph fluid to leave the body.
Cold hands and feet—use ginger hand and foot baths, alternating first hot and then
cold. Sweaty hands and feet—avoid sugar, dairy, fruit juices.
Stroke and all circulation problems—avoid dairy and all fatty foods. Include shiitake mushrooms, daikon radish, or turnip. Exercise whenever possible as your condition permits. Use ginger foot bath.
