Remedy for restless leg syndrome?

Just listened to a dialysis patient, mind you I'm not a dialysis nurse, share a remedy she received from another patient for restless leg. 

She digs a hole in her garden, buries her legs in the soil part way, Rests there for up to 20 minutes. Then can sleep there after!!

This is something you may want to suggest for this troubling commonality. Please let me know if anyone ever heard of such a wild idea as this! Thank you! 

Reason for the season? Jesus death  burial and resurrection, the gospel, by which we are saved by trusting in his finished work at the cross.??
