Does using hot water can help in proper blood circulation in the feet?

Temporarily: Placing your feet in warm water (note: not steaming hot!) can help a bit with circulation, as can a heating pad or compress. Heat causes the blood vessels to dilate, allowing more volume of blood to pass through. If there is severe stenosis or blockage, this is not effective. See a vascular surgeon if you are having blood flow problems, as hot water is not a treatment on it's own. ...Read more

I have cold tinkling sensation on my left feet. May I know what is most likely the cause? Is it blood circulation?
