It’s thought that the Earth’s surface, which has a natural electric charge, radiates and transfers beneficial electrons i.e. energies to the human body, and that close, direct contact with Earth increases the benefits.

Direct contact involves, for instance, removing floors, tiles, carpets, and shoes, walking barefoot indoors and outdoors, and working, sitting, and sleeping on the ground. One can also find Earthing systems for purchase, such as conductive mats, pads, body bands, or patches.

By its practitioners it’s believed that Earthing can reduce, for instance, inflammations, pains, stress, anxiety, depression, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, while promoting blood circulation, vitality and sleep quality, and stimulating overall well-being.

Another important benefit is that walking barefoot strengthens and stretches the smaller muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the feet, ankles, and calves. In fact, walking barefoot tends to restore our natural walking pattern, which is thought to strengthen the legs and better support our back, while improving our balance and coordination abilities.
