The Ion Cleanse Foot Detox Bath (or Ion Spa) is simply a foot bath filled with water containing an electrode which dispenses negative ions. Negative ions are crucial to the body’s efficient metabolic processing. Healthy people should contain 80% negative electrons and only 20% positive electrons. Most of us carry around far fewer negative ions than we need! Negative ions provide the following benefits to our bodies:
- Stimulate the reticulo-endothelial system, a group of defense cells in our bodies that marshal our resistance to disease.
- Act on our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. Negative ions in the bloodstream accelerate the delivery of oxygen to our cells and tissues.
- Speed up oxidation of serotonin (5-hydroxtryptamine) in the blood. This is well known to have far reaching effects on mood, pain relief and sexual drive.
The Ion Spa treatment works by allowing absorption of the negative ions into the body through the soles of your feet. This is an easy, effective and affordable treatment.
During the ionizing process, your body absorbs millions of the negatively charged ions, which alkalize the blood and tissue. Your feet are in direct contact with the ions being manufactured in the water. By the process of osmosis, those negative ions are absorbed through the soles of your feet. They circulate throughout the body, where they attach to oppositely-charged toxins stored in cells, tissues and organs, before being drawn back out into the water via osmosis. This process rebalancing your charge and typically produces a higher energy state in the body. The Ion Detox also typically:
- Strengthens the functions of autonomic nerves
- Reinforces collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
- Improves the permeability of the cell’s prototype plasma membranes (improves metabolism)
- Strengthens the body’s immune system
A foot bath therapy session lasts 30 minutes. You simply sit down, put your feet into the basin of water, and relax. The colour of the water changes due to the chemical reaction – that is, your body’s release of toxins. After each session, you’ll feel lighter, more energetic, more limber. You may opt to have your foot spa while we do BEAM Therapy or EFT, for added benefits. It’s a very efficient and healthy use of time!
Also, if you are having any other sort of therapy, be aware that releasing emotions causes chemical reactions in the body, so you need to detoxify physically to keep up with the emotional detox. In fact, every time you have a new thought, your body is flushed with different chemicals. Keep your thoughts positive so you get just the good juices flowing!
Please note: Ion Cleanse treatments are not recommended for pregnant women, those with implanted electrical devices, open foot wounds, or children aged 4 and under.
