Detox Foot or Hand Baths


Our feet have over 2,000 sweat glands and 7,200 nerve endings.  Arteries, veins and meridians are also found on the feet and hands.  These factors make the feet and hands natural gateways for detoxification.  Detox foot or hand baths use ionized water and ionic current stimulation to open sweat glands and meridians and to allow toxins to leave the body naturally.  The detox baths also aid in balancing ph.


My patients have noted better mental clarity, improved eyesight, clearer skin, and increased elimination of toxins by the normal, natural process of elimination.  Increased energy, feeling stronger and increased ability to breathe deeply are some of the natural side effects of having a detoxified body.


“I had restless legs (tremors) that would fly off the bed.  After Dr Onofrey’s treatments, including acupuncture, homeopathy, cold laser, nutrition, and detox footbaths, I was able to detoxify aluminum from my body and my restless legs have stop jumping."  Barb W., Weeki Wachee, FL.
