Kneipp's footbath - It is a part of hydrotherapy that consists of walking in the water on pebbles. The footbath consists of two water containers, each large enough to walk. Into one container is poured enough cold water, and the other container is filled with hot water. The cold water may be held at a level of about 10°C to 16°C and the hot water at 38°C to 44°C. The leg or legs are first placed in the hot water for four to six minutes and then at once in the cold water for one to two minutes. For the client to finish the treatment with a feeling of comfort should be in the hot water.
