ION Cleanse Foot Bath
*only available at South location
The cost per 30 minute session is $30.00 (Lowest Price in town)
An ionic foot spa produces a low current, low voltage signal and sends it through the array submerged in the foot bath water. The current in the array creates ionization through a process known as electrolysis.
Electrolysis breaks down the H2O (water) molecule and produces a negative hydrogen ion (H-). These negative ions are then absorbed through the feet by osmosis. The foot serves as an excellent conduit for the whole body. The principles of reflexology outline how the feet are connected to all the vital organ systems and natural detoxificationpathways.
Toxins that are stored in the body often fall into the bio molecule species of free radicals. A free radical is a molecule that has lost an electron making them extremely unstable and reactive. Free radicals can be extremely dangerous to biological systems because they rupture bonds in cells' bio molecules. If a free radical reacts with a bio molecule, it typically steals an electron from an atom and leaves the bio molecule missing an electron, thereby becoming a new free radical. That creates a chain reaction that proliferates free radicals, rupturing chromosomes and cell membranes. Recent studies suggest that several disease states including certain forms of cancer, may be attributable to free radicals.
Once the negative hydrogen ions are introduced to the body, they essentially act as an antioxidant. Antioxidants, like Vitamin C, lose electrons easily. It is this process that neutralizes free radicals. Negative hydrogen ions act as supercharged free radical scavengers. Once a free radical is neutralized, the body's natural detoxification process can easily eliminate it.
Apart from the biochemical science, ion foot spas should be viewed as energy medicine. As stated previously, the human body functions energetically. This energy can be so subtle that while there are modern scientific methods of "seeing" or measuring this energy, it remains mostly theories which describe its function or effects on a persons health and wellbeing.
The ultimate goal of an ionic foot spa is to stimulate the body's own natural detoxification systems and create a positive cellular environment that will assist the body in detoxifying naturally.
Throughout the cleanse, you will notice color changes in the water as toxins are being removed through the pores in the feet. The water color ranges from yellow-green, orange, brown, black, to dark green. The colors and textures indicate which organs or body systems are releasing toxins. You may notice white foam or white cheese-like particles floating on the water's surface, and/or black or red flecks resting at the bottom of the foot basin. The particles, fat and mucous residues found in the water reflect the wastes that have left your body. Most parasites are not visible to the eye, but occasionally parasites can be clearly seen in the water.
