It is recommended that anyone with a heart condition, high blood pressure, pregnant/breastfeeding women, and anyone taking prescription medications or any medical situation, should postpone the bath and check with your doctor or certified therapist. It may be acceptable to take a clay ‘pack’ instead of the bath or a clay ‘foot bath’. Although these are not as effective as a full tub bath, they work more slowly and gently. Foot baths can be done more often though, usually every 2 to 3 days. These baths also have had great success with children. See our instructions section and the Children’s Guidelines. Also see testimonials about children.
