All forms of training the body built on the "golden rule" - a gradual and systematic. With the gradual increase in strength and timing impact on the feet and body separate its functions are becoming more sophisticated and more resistant to environmental influences. If violated in the training course, it can damage health. When hardening can cause cold, but with hard use strong tactile stimulus - a violation of neural processes
Sometimes you can hear from a person who fails to comply with gradualism hardening when he went cold floor barefoot and ill.
There are many options for training: if a person easily catches cold, you should first walk in socks, and then barefoot.
Initially, walk barefoot on the room the morning and evening for 10-15 min, elongated daily walking for 10 minutes, and bring it up to an hour a day.

After walking barefoot massage them with soles of the feet. Massage gastrocnemius muscle. If the process hardening succeeds, people can freely walk barefoot on ice and snow.
Along with walking barefoot well chill wash his feet and pouring water. When foot immersed in a wash basin with water at room temperature for a moment, then knead until fluffy towel feeling the heat. Duration foot baths a day increase for a moment and brings up to 10 minutes, reducing every 3 days the temperature of water by 1 ° C. After 2 months, the water temperature should be no higher than 5-7 ° C.
Pouring legs make way contrast hardening. Prepare two jar. In one pour hot water (about 40 ° C) and the other - cold (10-15 ° C). First purring hot water to the foot 1-2 min, followed by one minute - a cold. Finish shower procedure should be half a minute feet with hot water. Dry off and then carefully massage foot.
The temperature of cold water is gradually brought to 3-5 ° C. Elderly hardening need to start rubdown with a towel legs soaked with water at room temperature, lowering its temperature every day at the G S, and a week to go to shower or wash the feet. After this training you can walk barefoot, in keeping with a gradual and systematic.

Walking through the fresh snow can last 3-4 minutes. Kneyp system is widely used in home and sanatorium conditions in many countries.
For the recovery of children of all ages are very helpful in all respects, walking barefoot, if only because it is preventing flat-footedness and foot deformities (curvature of the large toes, with subsequent negative manifestations of this pathology).
To achieve a good overall physical development of children and resistance to disease, researchers recommend that teach children to a systematic walk barefoot (home, yard, testimony and even in parks, gardens, on the street).

Tempered in a way a child of preschool age can benefit from health year-round homes and into a warm time in the yard and walk without shoes. Useful after walking barefoot foot baths, with a gradual lowering of water temperature.
Since the foot reflex associated with upper respiratory track, children, like adults, it can be useful in conjunction with walking barefoot gargle and nose with water, gradually reducing water temperatures of 20 to 8 ° C.
For school-age children, are valid the same recommendation.
