Detox patches have been in market for a while, which I believe Kinohimitsu is one of the pioneers.
The main benefits of the detox patches are: detox and relieve body aches.
Detox patches use the principle of reflexology to absorb toxin circulating or accumulating at the soles of the feet. The soles are the central reflex points connected to the whole body. When you attach the detox patches on the sole of a foot, it activates the cell of the place where it attaches, improve blood circulation. So when you apply the detox patches at the sole, you can expel harmful toxin from your whole body.
Recently, I bought some detox patches from Daiso, and I just can’t help but to wonder: How will the cheap ones fare?
2 types of detox patches here: RM5 from Daiso and RM25 from Kinohimitsu. Both are ‘hot health pad’.
RM5: Straight out from packet, nothing fancy.
RM25: Comes with a resealable bag in excessive packaging.
RM5: Sole saps are in a single pack. No herbal smell.
RM25: Sole saps sealed separately so u can use one at a time (eg on your shoulder or arm). You can smell herbs from the sap.
Stick the sole sap with words onto the center of the adhesive sheet.
And stick it when you are on the bed.
Movement is still possible with the sap on but might be a little bit troublesome.
Now….ready to see the results?
The Kinohimitsu was my first try and they were in brown.
On the right, you see some empty spot which was because the sole sheet was not pressed tightly to my foot.
Colors on the used detox patches:
- Black – heave toxin deposit, weak body condition
- Brown – generally, health is in an okay condition, normal waste deposit
- Grey – excellent health condition, little toxins in body
To be honest, I felt nothing special after using the Daiso, but my feet felt slightly lighter after using the Kinohimitsu. Could this be psychological since I have spent so much $ on a single pair?
From the Kinohimitsu info, we have to use it for 2 weeks consecutively to feel/notice the ‘refreshed’ feeling, then use it 1 or 2 weekly.
As much as I would like to see a difference, but I really am not sure if I could use it for 14 days in a row due to the price. I don’t mind using Daiso’s ones for 14 days straight though. Who knows I will see some results too after using it for long? 😉
Now, anyone has any experiences to share? Did you really enjoy some benefits after using any detox patch like this? Or you have another brand to recommend?
