2. Next, take a pair of thin cotton socks and thoroughly wet all but the ankle portion with cold water.
3. Place the cold wet socks on your feet. Cover with thick wool socks (or thicker cotton is okay for children). Go to bed with plenty of blankets. Avoid getting chilled.
4. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning. Many patients report that they sleep much better during the treatment.
