The right balance of a cool head and warm feet for a great night’s sleep
In traditional Japanese medicine great value is attached to the philosophical principle of “cool head and warm feet” (su-kan soku-netsu). It is considered the healthiest state, where everything in the body can be in optimal balance. On the other hand, those who have a warm head and cold feet, become unbalanced and can suffer from many ailments, such as headaches, irritability, muscle pain, stiff neck, poor digestion, nervousness and insomnia. Sleeping with a buckwheat pillow and the well-being of the body is also compared to the volcano; Fujiama which is hot deep in the earth (warm feet) while on top there is eternal snow (cool head).
