I am sure we all would have seen photos of people with aluminium foil wrapped around their torso in health magazines at some point and wondered what on Earth are they doing. Maybe it’s yet another whacky antic going around, we would think.

Whacky as it may be, it definitely is something unique and very beneficial for soothing out everyday pains. And it works for not just back or torso in general, but for other body parts as well. Most notably, you’re tired and hurt feet. Just put some foil around your feet and be amazed.

The chemicals of the aluminium foil work to regulate the body’s energy flow pathways and result in a sped up healing process. This is, in fact, a very popular method and widely used around the world. It works for muscle pains and joint pain too, albeit it may be a bit slow for the latter.

Heel pain

Heel pain is nothing uncommon for us ladies. Wearing heels all day, be it office or after work parties leave our feet hurting. It can get pretty bad at times. While there are other ways to soothe that pain, you can try wrapping aluminium foil for a few hours and see how it fares. Doing it at night after you are done with the day will bring best results. This works for Gout pain as well.

Sciatica pain

That is defined by searing and burning pain in the feet. For healing, wrap foil around feet for 8-12 hours for about 10 days.


If you feel numbness in your feet, which we most often do in winters, wrap them in foil for a few hours every day and it should help with smoothing out the pain.

Joint pain

Joint pain in feet is not very common, older people may suffer from it more often. In case you do, treat it to the same process as you would sciatica pain, ie, wrapping them in aluminum foil for 8-12 hours straight for 10-12 days.


As surprising as it may sound, this trick works amazingly for colds and flu – something that can adversely affect our health.

All you have to do is wrap 5-7 layers of foil on your feet with cotton in between each of the layers. Stay put like that for an hour. Remove and let it stay for 2 hours. Rinse repeat this 2 more times, and you are done.

These tricks sure sound tricky but they do work. However, do not expect instant results. Be patient and let the process take its time. But if your problem still persists, it’s best to consult a doctor.
