One evening, in a deep mountain, the group looked around to find a place to rest their exhausted body. They saw a hot spring streaming out of the rock where they decided to make their shanty for the night. Before going to sleep, they placed their feet to the hot stream to tie their fatigue. When they woke up the next morning, they noticed that they felt healthier than ever before. The group completed their journey of pilgrimage, and they were informed by their doctors that their illnesses were gone.
This occurrence of miraculous healing power spread around from villages to villages. Thousand of people followed the same route of pilgrimage, and some doctors and retired doctors found that foot spa has something to do with healing.
