One of our signature treatments at Santosa Detox and Wellness Center in Phuket, Thailand is an Ion Cleanse Foot Bath. This forty minute treatment is not only relaxing, but it also draws out toxins through the soles of the feet.


What is an ion cleanse foot bath?

An ion cleanse foot bath involves immersing your feet in a basin filled with salt water. There are electrodes in the water that add a small electric charge. It is believed that this small electric charge helps to draw out toxins while making the body’s pH more alkaline. During the ion cleanse foot bath, while this happens the water can turn brown, black or even orange. An ion cleanse foot bath reduces pain, kickstarts energy levels and can offer relief from conditions such as allergies and insomnia.

How does an ion cleanse foot bath work?

During an ion cleanse foot bath, electrical current passes through a set of plates in a module that is immersed in the water inside the foot bath tub. The water in the foot bath contains a special, natural sea salt so it has a similar mineral concentration of water from the ocean. While your feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are released by the foot bath system.

An ion cleanse foot bath re-energizes the body and its red blood cells. The process eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, the liver, bowels and skin. The ion cleanse foot bath also triggers the body’s lymphatic system, which in turn continues the detoxification process for a continued 24 to 48 hours.


What can I expect during an ion cleanse foot bath?

You can expect to feel relaxed, focused and balanced. Generally, the process does not produce any pain. The ion foot cleanse bath is a relaxing treatment; you will sit in a chair during the session, and afterwards you may experience a slight tingling sensation.




What are the benefits of an ion cleanse foot bath?

  • A more balanced pH level
  • Purging of heavy metals
  • Enhancing the immune system
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Purifying of yeast


As part of a detox and wellness program, an ion cleanse foot bath also aids in internal cleansing, detoxifying the liver and also purifying the kidneys as well as cleansing the body of parasites.

It is recommended to partake in at least 6 sessions of an ion cleanse foot bath over a period of 3-5 weeks. After these initial six sessions, you can choose to move to monthly sessions. How quickly you can expect results depends on your personal condition, lifestyle and willingness to take responsibility for your health.
