The ionic foot bath produces positive and negative ions that reverberate throughout the body to remove toxins and rebalance cellular energy. You release these toxins through the pores of your feet.
While the body's natural electrical impulses flow daily, age, injury, and illness can affect the electrical flow, causing a person to feel bad. The ionic foot bath, works to detoxify the body of harmful substances and
re-establish its natural balance.
The ionic foot bath operates through a process called electrolysis by passing direct electrical current through the foot bath water to break apart the H2O (water) molecule. This releases oxygen, stable hydrogen and the negative hydrogen ion (H-), the core benefit of an ionic foot bath session.
This negative hydrogen ion is a powerful antioxidant, pH balancer and the catalyst most responsible for ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) production, our body's greatest energy resource. In the past, we received the negative hydrogen we needed through the consumption of raw vegetables and light proteins but modern processing, storage and handling has virtually stripped the modern diet of this increasingly vital element. Gentle and relaxing ionic foot bath sessions allow the body to uptake this "fuel of life", which is essential in balancing and energizing the body's natural ability to purge toxins and heal itself.
When experiencing the ionic foot bath, you will see the water change color as the electrical current, water, and magnetic field interact with your feet. the colors are noticeably different from one person to another depending on the kinds of toxins in the body, many times there is a distinct odor to the water as the process continues.
The main point of the Ionic foot spa is to make the body's pH more "alkaline," but what exactly is the importance of being alkaline?
An alkaline body is crucial to a person's health. Diseases thrive in an acidic environment. So basically, the less acidic your body is and the more alkaline, the less prone you are to contracting a disease, such as osteoporosis or cancer.
The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illness are caused by toxins and pollutants in our bodies. The human body functions best when the ions are balanced at 80% negative and 20% positive. So how do we achieve this?
What we put into our body, such as the foods we consume, have either acidic or alkalizing properties. Check out the food charts for yourself. The more of the higher alkaline foods you can incorporate into your diet the better. An ionic detox, helps to facilitate the alkalization process through the process of ionization, which removes "free radicals" from the body.
How does the ionic Foot Spa relate to Chinese medicine?
Traditionally, we think of acupuncture and herbal medicine as being the main components of Chinese medicine. The ionic foot detoxes we see today are a more modern invention, but magnetism itself, has been used to accompany traditional Chinese methods medicinally in China for over 2,000 years.
You may find that you sleep better, suffer less from our allergies and feel more relaxed after a session. The body will continue to dexot for up to 48 hours.
Take some time for yourself and come in for a relaxing ionic foot spa today, you owe it to yourself!
No appointment is necessary for a session, allow at least 45 minutes to complete a session.
