OPTIMUM Detox Footbaths – Key Concepts, Benefits, Research, FAQ, Buyers Guide, Comparisons


16 yearsCelebrating 16yrs producing, Optimum Energetics Systems™ detox footbath units, one of the longest manufacturers, USA made (former models Focus Standard Universal ES1500, Focus Professional ES8000, Focus Dual ES9000) w a 3 yr warranty. The Optimum Detox footbath™ is a bi-product of over 16 yrs of research, development &  manufacturing.

The Family of OPTIMUM Detox footbath™ units are the latest in ionic detox foot bath technology & the most powerful/safest machines. The OPTIMUM ionic footbath™ creates an ionization osmosis environment running negative oxygen ions through your body pulling & attracting the positively charged impurities, heavy metals, etc out through the feet in to the saline charged solution in the bath. The energized ionized water runs through your body bringing the body's chi & meridians back in to balance where one might feel energized & relaxed. Impurities are pulled from the body, improving the body's natural resilience. There is a noticeable change in the water color during the session where you are actually seeing cellular waste & oxidation present in the water. The energy fields are stronger, strengthening the body's immune system. You will feel revitalized, lighter feeling, balanced, clarity, healthy & ready to enjoy life! This system is easy enough for a home user to use as well as a practitioner... no formal training is necessary.
Made in USA


Most Powerful Units

OPTIMUM detox footbaths are the most powerful units on the market. The standard OPTIMUM model runs as high as 3.00 AMPS and the professional model as high as 5.5 AMPS. Most competitors' units only operate up to 2.5 AMPS.

Generates Higher Voltage

OPTIMUM detox footbaths generate a higher voltage of negative ions . Because our units operate at higher AMPS, they are able to generate more negative ions-up to 35 times higher than competitive units. Since competitors' water modules are generating less electrical activity, they can last longer than our Optimizer water module however they will not produce as high of an ORP (# of ions).

Adjustable Current Control

OPTIMUM detox footbaths has adjustable 'Current Control' knob to compensate for people's different needs receiving the treatment. With the Optimum units you have full control over the amperage simply by adjusting the current knob (going as low as 0.00 to 5.50 amps). Other competitor units do not have the ability to make adjustments to the incoming current. Their units' amperage can only be increased by adding 'salt'. To reduce the amperage in the competitor's units you cannot take the salt out of the water so you have to either dump the water or dilute it defeating the purpose of creating a denser saline solution. Even if these other units have preprogrammed buttons you are still adding salt to increase the amperage until the unit notifies you when the amperage has been reached and then you stop adding salt. It is a cheap way to control amperage and the client is receiving a straight 24 volt current which is not healthy. We use regulators to control the power supply.

Comprehensive Protective Mechanism

OPTIMUM detox footbaths feature a comprehensive protective mechanism. Our internal and external fuses and double insulated construction guard against the water module blowing a fuse. Many competitive brands use other technology that is not as protective of the person getting the footbath treatment.

Water Module

OPTIMUM detox footbaths use a water module with advanced features. The Optimizer water module offers advanced 'large' surface design to enhance the ionic osmosis process; bolted connections for stronger conductivity; use of high grade stainless steal construction; and easy replacement of individual components saving money.

Technologically Advanced

OPTIMUM detox footbaths are technologically advanced in components, internal stages of regulation, output, and use of double insulation. Many other brands still use outdated Transformer Rectifier (TR) power supply technology from the 1960s, which can malfunction and cause ripples and spikes or static interference.

Optional Copper Tub

OPTIMUM detox footbaths offer an optional copper tub that enhances conductivity. Because less current is needed to generate the desired amperage power, the copper tub helps extend the life of the Optimizer water module. Other brands only use plastic tubs. Another benefit is a higher production of ions since the copper enhances the movement of electrons where in a plastic tub the electrons slow down as they move away from the array. More electrons moving will create more negative ions.

Practitioner Certification

OPTIMUM detox footbaths offers Practitioner Certification Training to either start a new business or incorporate in your existing.

Made in the USA

OPTIMUM detox footbaths are made in USA and serviced in USA. We are one of the original ion foot spa manufacturers and have a long standing history. Today most ion foot spas are made in China and are very cheaply made and in fact not very safe.

Unlimited Customer Support

Warranty: 3 yrs! Made and Serviced in the US. learn more


Superior Quality Construction

Our units are Professional Grade Quality & last a long time even with heavy usage. Don't be fooled by cheap models from China that generally don't last long & are not safe.

Full Control Of Amperage

  • Amperage is adjusted thru current controller instead of salt for differences in human skin resistance, elements in the water, & the electrolyte
  • Full control over current.
  • Other Units on the market adjust amperage ONLY 'via salt' with a straight 24 volt current.

Clean Power

Pure DC power without excessive ripple or noise.

Stronger Power

We have the most powerful units on the market including our home model which translates in to creating more negative ions for cleansing the body and draws out more toxins from the body

Dual Regulation System

Featuring a switching regulator with over-current and over-voltage protection, and adjustable regulator with fold-back circuit

Full Digital Display

Our digital display displays the amperage output on the fly which is important to know how intense the treatment is so it can be adjusted if needed. Amperage will change during the session which accounts for variables in the water, in the electrolysis, salt and skin resistance

Practitioner Certification Training

Take our certification training at home at your leisure. Our training is like no other manufacturer and properly trains you giving you the accurate knowledge needed instead of fluff.

Safe Construction

Through 3 levels of safety protection. A fallback circuit that turns itself off if it detects too much current; an external fuse that shuts down the machine if the fuse blows; and an internal fuse that offers overall protection for the entire unit.

Double Insulation

For customer protection. No need for a GFI certification.

Optimizer Water Module

An Optimizer water module that lasts for an average of ~60 OR MORE footbaths and then just order replacement red plates. The new OPIII array lasts longer, cost of replacement is 50% less and is more eco-friendly.

Customer Service & Support

A reputation for delivering a high level of customer service and support.

Dedicated To Research

We are dedicated to research and sharing of health knowledge with our customers.

Unique Copper Tub

Our unique COPPER TUB adds conductivity to the footbath; this means less current which helps extend the life of the Optimizer water array. Other brands only use plastic tubs. Another benefit is a higher production of ions since the copper enhances the movement of electrons where in a plastic tub the electrons slow down when moving away from the array. More electrons moving will create more negative ions.


State-of-the-Art Regulator power supply (unlike Transformer Rectifier [TR] technology from 1960s), Clean power supply and discharge, producing more negative ions.

Optimum Costs

OPTIMUM COSTS more due to quality of the parts. Other units on the market are cheaply made & cost less than $100 dollars then sold for $495 to $1900. The old saying you get what you pay for.

Engineering Team

Engineering Team has over 40 yrs experience with power supplies from TR units to 30,000vdc used on the moon & beyond.


We have been manufacturing detox footbaths for more than 16yrs beginning w Focus 1000, Focus 8000, Focus 9000 models. We stand behind our products w our 3yr warranty.

"Did the certification manual while away this weekend. What an eye opener as far as benefits and features. Who did the manual? Great job, very clear. Makes me happy to know I have the "real deal". ...Every one that is going to sell or provide footbath services must have this book...Thanks, Diana" (Northport, NY)

"Thank you. I did receive the certificate. I appreciate the follow up and really enjoyed the certification process. I was amazed how well written and easy to understand the technical information was and how professional the comparisons were to other footbaths. I saw a thread of Taoism in the way the information was written. If you don't already read it, you would probably enjoy it... Thanks again, Linda" (Stevensville, MD)

Amazing Health Results

As a practitioner for over three years, I have some amazing health results from footbaths. Some of the most dramatic have been lumps that have completely disappeared after usually one footbath.

I have treated three Vietnam veterans with agent orange in their legs and feet - After taking several footbaths, the itching, burning, and stinging, as well as the discoloration in the skin in these areas were all dramatically reduced and all were returned to being comfortable once again. One man had acetone poisoning. He had been seriously ill for six years. After two and a half months of weekly footbaths, he was completely restored to his former health. In one woman's footbath, the removal of heavy metals was so extreme that the substance coming from her body through her feet was black and gritty -she had been an airline stewardess for many years. "..."Toxicity is a major health concern in our present polluted society. We must have a method to detoxify the body - The energetic footbath is in my opinion the most effective way to address this serious problem.

I'm Very Healthy

I have been using the footbath since 2000, and some results have been increased energy. My complexion is very clear and the whites of my eyes are white. I'm very healthy. People notice something different about me and want whatever it is. My joints no longer feel stiff, and I just feel an all over renewal.

Found the Fountain of Youth

I've found a machine that really helps diabetes. It is the footbath machine. It is new to the United States. It cleans the poisons and toxins out of your system. I got one because I've been a hairdresser all of my life and my body was extremely toxic. What I didn't realize was how much it would help my husband who is diabetic. He had no feeling in the bottoms of his feet for 3 ~ years. After three treatments the feeling came back. When his legs were swollen it took the swelling and pain out of his legs and ankle. He lost seven pounds after that treatment over a two day period. After continued use of the footbath machine his breathing got better. His lung capacity was 40% and now it is 79% Also, he had no trouble with his heart when he had his hernia surgery. Normally, he would end up in the ICU unit whenever he had any surgical procedure. I feel like I have found the fountain of youth. The best of health to all of you. Thank you.

Impressed with the Results

On the first visit it looked like my feet were in a tub of transmission fluid when I finished the footbath. I've had severe swelling and pain in my right elbow, bursal sack. It was crystallizing. After the first treatment, the swelling kept going down and just two days later back to normal. I have more energy and don't seem to need naps during the day. Very impressed with the results!

How To Buy A Detox Footbath


What is the amperage?


Amperage is how strong the footbath treatment is. Min of 3 Amps, most units only go from 1.4 to 2.5 amps. Not very strong. more info on Amps


How high are the watts?


~150 w for professional use, 60w for home use. The higher the watts the higher you can go in amperage.


Can you manually adjust the Amps or is Amps only adjusted by adding salt?


Amps needs to be controlled by adjusting the current and not by adding salt. more info on Amps


Is Polarity Single or Dual?


Single more info


Does the detox footbath unit provide a protection mechanisms?


Is the control unit separate from the tub or built in?


Do not want the unit built in to tub that way you can use also in a bath tub or pedi chair.


Is the detox footbath tub plastic or copper?


A copper tub is ideal since it is conductive where plastic is not. More info


If the water array has copper, make sure it is 100% copper... most copper has beryllium which causes the green discoloration


100% pure copper, beryllium is a carcinogen


Can you manually replace the plates?


Ideally if the worn down plates can be replaced, this will save money and is more eco-friendly. Our Optimum Arrays have large thick plates that are bolted in. The larger surface area of the plates produce more ions than small plates. The bolted connections allow more current to go thru then tiny coils/connectors that break down easily


How many sessions per water array?


Our new water module lasts longer and is stronger with ~60 (more or less) baths. Other companies claim 50-100 baths. This is because they are running less current through the water module to get more baths. We are about quality & not quantity. If we run less current through our water module then we could easily get 100 are more baths.


Does the footbath have the water array built in to the tub?


Separate so you can use in any type of tub .. even a bath tub


How does the water array get cleaned and disinfected?


need access to array plates for removing mineral & toxins.


Does the detox footbath unit use a wristband which has to touch the body for unit to run?


NO wristband. The unit not only is grounding the unit using your body but it is also not safe.


What type of salt is recommended: processed salt, such as table salt, or a high grade non-processed salt with trace minerals?


A high non-processed grade salt. Himalayan Salt is our preferred choice due to the natural crystalline form and how the body metabolizes it so easily. Normal Table Salt has lost its natural form since it has been processed.
• EPSON Salt: Epson salt is not a salt. It is magnesium so there for you lose the osmosis process






Almost all detox footbath manufacturers state that the water colors correlate to the cellular waste from the various parts of the body & organs. Not only do we not support the diagnosing of health issues based on the color of the water, there are also no scientific studies or data supporting this type of analysis. At minimum you will get a orangey color that is due to the oxidation and also depending on what is in the water will create colors even without a body. Not all impurities are visible. However we did want to prove that toxins can come out of the body during the treatment so we conducted control tests (click here for test results) demonstrating that heavy metals existed in the footbath water after a 35 min. treatment & also were plated on the water arrays' rings. When testing for what elements are in the water samples, you must specify what the lab is to test for. What impurities to test for could be easilyg in the thousands so the testes focused on heavy metals.

Other forms of release & testing can be done on the oily film that forms on the surface indicating body fluid, change in urine color or urine smells due to the elimination of toxins & stimulation of the lymphatic system.

Color changes in the footbath water will vary due to the different water conditions & bodies; however, at minimum the electrolysis of the water creates a color change known as oxidation (which is mainly the orange color, not joints as what is stated in the color charts). The interaction of the OPTIMUM FOCUS water module with the City added chemicals can cause quite a discoloration in the water. It must neutralize those chemicals and energize the water. Some sediment is seen depending upon the amounts of solids that are inherent in water to begin with. The final result has to do with the health of the person being treated. This will then determine the water color change.




Simply regular hot tap water and add 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan salt crystals. That's it!




A detox footbath session average time is 35 minutes. We recommend starting off w 'Deep Cleanse Series' (14 treatments), roughly 3 x week; then take a 21 day break and repeat again. These cycles can be done at a minimum once a year.




The object is called the "Optimizer Water Module" (previously called Exciter).




The OPTIMUM detox footbath power unit uses 2 regulation internal stages; 1st stage outputs a 24vdc voltage, 2nd stage outputs an adjustable range of voltage from 1/2 vdc- 22.5vdc. Our power unit contains an external fuse which is a safety device to protect the system. Other manufacturers use an internal fuse (located inside) which shuts off the voltage & the unit.




We suggest not using a cell phone that could affect the electromagnetic field. The footbath unit affects your energitic field & cellular field so any other influences, ie cell phone, can affect the detox process. The more relaxed you are the more you will get the most out of your detox footbath.


What is better a full bath or a footbath?


Full bath is optional and may be done dealing with a uppoer body disorder. However the footbath does work on the whole body.


Is there incentive to refer a friend to buy a unit?


Contact Us, if you refer a friend and they order one of our footbath units, you may collect a referrral fee or become a distributor and collect commission.


What is done with the footbath water?


Pour the footbath water in to the toilet.


Do I need to drink water & minerals w sessions?


Most people dont drink enough water and are dehydrated. If one is dehydrated, you can feel headachy or nauseous during the treatment. Hydrating with water will help with these possible side effects. Most people are also deficient in at least 1 mineral. Taking mineral supplements helps with the detoxing and footbath process.


I heard the water will become clear over time?


We live in a toxic world. Breathing the air & eating food can re-toxify the body in a rapid manner. It will take vigilance on our part to help our bodies to remain detoxed.


What happens if done w no one in the tub?


There will be a certain amount of discoloration in the water due to the processing of the chemicals the city puts in. There is also the interaction of the minerals from the Himalayan salt crystals. The degree of differences with the feet added will show up from person to person. Some will have more color, some will have more floaters, or more film on top of the water.


What is the footbath treatment cost?


Suggested cost $35.00-$45.00 per treatment. Package discounts can be offered, especially for the deep cleanse series of 14 sessions.


Why a copper tub?


Many of our clients and practitioners have shown increased results by using the copper tub instead of a plastic tub due to it's conductive properties. It is optional.


Can the water array shock me?


NO and is imppossible since the max voltage is 24v. If a person has open cut on their feet while submerged in the water then a person can experience a shock but not hurftul. Dont do treatments until cut has healed.


How is the water array cleaned?


** Make sure the connector does not get wet. Rinse off the Optimizer water array with water and then disinfect it. Then rinse the Optimizer water array with Hot water. **Make sure the Optimizer water is completely dry before putting away.**


Can it remove heavy metals?


Based on client feedback, practitioner feedback and our own testing yes. With our tests we showed aluminum and other heavy metals both in the footbath water and plated to the electrode arrays.


Can diseases be cured?


The OPTIMUM footbath treatments can help the body to detox and help heal itself which helps to improve the immune system. We make "no claims" of curing diseases & as always contact your physician for advise.


Does the type of salt matter?


Table (processed) salt has been stripped of its naturally formed crystals & minerals. Even Sea Salt has crystalline structures that are irregular & disconnected. The body has a difficult time processing it. The Himalayan salt's crystal structure is balanced & has natural branching. Himalayan salt contains 84 trace mineral elements. Based on this, we recommend Himalayan salt.


What type of tub is recommended?


We suggest our copper tub however if you decide not to then you can purchasse a 15 Qt size tub at your local store.


Does distilled water work better?


Any type of water can be used. We found the same results no matter what water is used. The footbath water should be comfortably warm which helps to open the pores.


Where did footbath technology originate?


The original footbath unit was developed in Australia.


Can I do treatment if taking prescription drugs?


Certain prescription drugs no. The unabsorbed/unprocessed drug can be drawn from the body. We recommend taking the footath treatment after enough time has passed for the body to absorb the medication. Check with your doctor before treatment.


Can this rid athletes foot & toenail fungus?


Certain individuals, after several treatments, have stated their toenail fungus & athletes foot have disappeared or improved significantly.


How do I know the treatments are working?


Be aware of minute changes in energy, sleep patterns, mood changes, relief of health ailments, etc.


Is the morning or night a better time?


Depends on the individual. If sleep is an issue, then try before bedtime. If the treatment gives you energy, then do in the morning.


What models do you offer?

How is your machine better than others?


Our OPTIMUM footbath machine do not use transformers, instead qualified components which prevents malfunctions of the machine. The OPTIMUM FOCUS machine uses a regulation w 2 internal stages. The 1st stage outputs a 24vdc voltage, the 2nd stage outputs an adjustable range of voltage from .5vdc - 22.5vdc. Our detox footbath unit uses an external fuse to protect the system. Other units use an internal fuse which shuts off the unit.

All of our parts are UL rated and the amperages is less than the UL safety levels. We designed our units to be durable, light & reasonably priced that is simple to use.

Our optimizer water array is disposable with no manually replacing of array rings. We give you with a completed support system for your business with online advertising for free. We give you outstanding support which is just a simple phone call or email. contact us


What is tingling sensation during treatment?


You are more sensitive to the sensations of your own body. Some people can feel a pulling sensation or even a tingling sensation in problem areas. This is the process working.


Can I eat during the treatment?


Not an issue.


How long will the units last?


The unit should last a very long time as long as it is used as the instructions are stated. We give a 3 yr limited warranty w the option to purcahse and extended warranty.


How long does the Optimizer Water array last?


We have found an average of 50 - 60 footbaths depending on the amperage used and how well you take care of it.


What can I expect from a treatment?


Everyone is unique & will experience the OPTIMUM FOCUS treatment in their own way. Some can feel elated, energized. Others may want to sleep. Some may feel nauseous or dizzy (if dehydrated or heavy toxins being released in the body). Some have even experienced leg & foot cramps (lack of minerals). Those who are sensitive may feel tingling or pulling sensation during the treatment.


Benefits of a Detox Footbath

The OPTIMUM ionic foot spa process creates an osmosis environment, where toxins move out from the body. The water starts off clear when the feet are first placed in the water. At the end of the thirty five minute session, the footbath water will have colors due to the oxidation, cellular body waste & toxins/impurities in the water. Toxins are drawn out from the body due to this osmosis environment. Human Cells have been viewed under a darkfield microscope that shows improvements after just 1 treatment. It shows the humans cells as rounded & free-floating, showing oxygenation and hydration has occurred. The human cell walls are less dense & clearer. The OPTIMUM ionic foot spa balances the meridians and energizes the body.

How a Detox Footbath Works?

OPTIMUM ionic detox footbath system stimulates the body's cells energy & creates an osmosis process moving cellular waste from the body.


OPTIMUM Detox Footbath generates negative oxygen ions absorbed by the body's cells boosting the cell's energy & increasing cellular waste removal, helping the body to restore it’s normal balance. A healthy human cell has a charge approximately 70-90 millivolts or .7-.9 volts, just less than a volt. A cell operates optimally within this range of voltage. Cells that are injured or stressed will measure as low as .1-.2 volts, resulting in both poor waste discharge and poor nutritional absorption. Build up of positive ions from poor diets, stress and toxic environment will lower a cell's voltage.

The OPTIMUM Detox Footbath will generate ions that are 35 times more powerful than other detox footbath systems. At 1.60 amps (amperage) for example, the OPTIMUM detox footbath is approximately 14v-15v. The OPTIMUM ES1550i Standard model will run up to 3.00 amps & the OPTIMUM Professional models run up to 5.50 amps. The body absorbs the negative oxygen ions generated from the footbath negating the positive ions (free radicals). The cells are stimulated & energized by the highly charged ions releasing cellular waste & strengthening the cells. The body then begins to function at its normal energy levels.


The Optimum detox footbath uses a similar process that is medically approved called Peritoneal Dialysis which uses osmosis to move cellular waste from the body.

Osmosis is where fluids pass thru a semi-permeable membrane where a solution is less dense & moves to a denser solution. With the human body, this body fluid transfer moves toxins from the body into the denser solution (the molecule size must be smaller than the pores of the membrane to pass thru). Protein & other types of molecules that are too large to pass through the membranes pores will not be removed. During the 35 minute detox footbath treatment, the human body only releases what is small enough and ready to be released and then the rest goes out thru the body's natural elimination system. Each footbath treatment can affect the body in different ways as it moves towards a healthy balance. Each person is unique and will react differently to others. Once the body's energy field is stimulated, the cells release their toxins into the lymphatic system and any cellular waste that is not pulled out during the 35 minute process, will continue to move out thru the lymphatic system. Examples of potential reactions are stronger urine smell or color, and/or increased bowel movement which can last from 3 to 5 days after having one treatment.

Himalayan Salt, 1/2 a teaspoon, is added to the footbath water to act as the electrolyte for the Optimizer water array (electrode) and to create the denser saline solution needed for the osmosis process. The Himalayan Crystal Salt has a balanced crystalline structure, which is easier for the body to metabolize and the 84 trace minerals provide the electrolytes needed for the current to move thru the water.

When the Himalayan Salt is added to the footbath water, the Na (sodium) & the Cl (chloride) immediately break up to form negative ions & positive ions. The Optimizer water array is designed to maximize the production of negative ions. The negatively charged ions will be bound with a positive or a less negatively charged element. The Optimizer array creates 2 streams, one is hydrogen and the other oxygen, in the water. This and the added salt makes the footbath water denser accelerating the osmosis process.

OPTIMIZER Array (Electrode) - has cathode and anode plates. The cathode plates is where the electrons from the power source (current) move in to the solution. The negatively charged cathode attracts the negative ions (cations) in the footbath electrolyte solution. The positively charged anode is the surface where the reactant that is being oxidized deposits the electrons it loses. The anode attracts the positively charged ions (anions) in the footbath electrolyte solutions.

Footbath Water (Electrolyte): The detox footbath saline water is the solution that allows the ions to move between the electrode plates.

NOTE: The Optimizer electrode charge isn't the same as what is in the electrolytic devices & electrochemical cells.


Third Party Testing

All of the verification testing has been performed by an independent third party laboratory of national recognition. Severn Trent Laboratories (STL) leads in testing for environmental substances within the United States and the United Kingdom, receiving samples from all over the world using sampling methodology systems such as Well Wizard™.

The first of our testing was an analysis of the water utilized in the footbath process.

The control environment was established by making readings of the solution before the test began, testing as specific time intervals with no feet in the solution and then using the same water source, same electrical unit and same electrodes in the solutions with feet in the solution for 35 minutes.

Exhibit one shows the results of this experiment; it is very evident that there is nickel, copper, iron, chromium, lead and manganese are in the solution upon the completion of the footbath.

The complete test report from Severn Trent is contained in Appendix 1.
