Grounding, also called earthing, relates to direct skin contact with the Earth’s surface. Connecting bare feet or the palms to the ground exposes the body to subtle electrical currents emitted from the surface. This practice has been associated with health benefits for centuries. In fact, research conducted by Polish neuroscientists found that ground-ing to the Earth’s electrical currents equalizes the electrical charge of the body. This equalizing is proposed to yield the beneficial effects for our well-being.
