Foot Soaking, without ever having to use a tub of water on the floor ever again

November 3, 2016

Lydia delRossi of Soakees "Slip-On and Tie" Foot-Bath which allows virtually anyone to be able to enjoy all the benefits of a foot soaking - without ever having to use a tub of water on the floor ever again joins eHealth Radio and the Beauty and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Lydia delRossi discuss the following:

  • What exactly are Soakees "Slip-On and Tie" Foot Bath Booties - and how do they work?
  • What made you design these for the public - what was the inspiration?
  • How can a 20 minute foot soak help people - why should they do it?
  • Can anybody use these? Do they have to be in a certain place or area to use Soakees?
  • How has the response been to Soakees so far?


Duration: 13:38


Since 2002   Lydia delRossi of Aiken, SC has developed Soakees "Slip-On and Tie" Foot Bath Booties as she manages Aiken Health Insurance - a full service Brokerage source for Nationwide "Alternative Health Insurance Strategies".  Her Health Insurance business has lead her to see first hand how many people suffer from the very things a simple foot bath can help resolve - if only the foot bath process was easier.  That was the mission of Soakees -  and she succeeded.


She has used her sales and marketing experience over  the past 14 years to developed a source for consumers to understand alternative coverage options available to them as well as offering guidance and coverage options for them - with Soakees being one of those  "personal empowerment" development options which came from her exposure to the tremendous amount of people in her Health Insurance business who suffer from insomnia and anxiety and fatigue - all which cam be helped with this new "tool" holistically - vs taking more pharmaceuticals.



She has successfully driven the growth and development of several start- up companies which have launched innovative new products into the marketplace such as Soakees "Slip-On and Tie" FootBath Booties and "StepnSoak-911"  Hoof Boots for the equine market.


A staunch supporter and active member of the nationally acclaimed  Toastmasters she is a frequent invited speaker at the Business School Division of the University of South Carolina on marketing and business strategies and has had used her leadership abilities to define tools and resources for consumers to use which will significantly drop their out of pocket expense and help them find the best possible medical care - and optional venues for them to help themselves -  regardless of if they have any Health Insurance coverage at all.


The goal Lydia delRossi and Soakees "Slip-On and Tie" Foot bath Booties are attaining is to give consumers the resources, tools and knowledge to help empower themselves and think "out of the box" when it comes to simple - easy and cost effective solutions they may have missed.  We invented convenience for them.
