1. What is and Ionic Foot Bath?
An ionic detox foot bath is a natural method of assisting the body in eliminating harmful toxins, heavy metals, and other harmful foreign matter. The Ionic machine is a water foot-bath that utilizes both brass and stainless steel electrodes, which clean, balance and enhances bio-energy, a vital force present in the body’s fluids. This type of energy is and electro-magnetic force stored within the body and utilized by our cells.
2. Why do we need to detoxify?
More than ever, we are exposed to major amounts of toxicity, which is why detoxification is essential in avoiding disease and maintaining optimum health.
3. What can I expect after a detox foot session?
Most people will feel relaxed, balanced, and focused. There is usually no pain. People who suffer from excessive toxicity may experience some discomfort as their bodies release toxins from the tissues for elimination. After a detox foot bath, clients are encouraged to drink plenty of water to assist with making elimination easier and more comfortable. Some people may experience fatigue or headache after a session.
4. Is the Ionic Cleanse Detox safe for everyone?
This is a safe therapy for anyone over the age of 10 years, except for those who wear a pacemaker or have seizures. This is suggested therapy for people who have accumulated many stored toxins and are not able to get rid of them efficiently, due to overworked liver, spleen, and kidney functions. This is especially recommended therapy for those who take a lot of medications. The ionic detox foot bath does not eliminate beneficial medications from the body.
5. What is a detox bath session like?
During a session the client sits in a comfortable chair. Most individuals find the experience VERY relaxing and it is not unusual for the client to fall asleep. The session takes about 30–40 minutes. Some people may experience a slight tickling or tingling sensation from the ionic detox foot bath. The practitioner washes your feet post detox with a soothing Seaweed and Peppermint wash followed by a foot softening Seaweed and Peppermint lotion.
6. How does an ionic detox foot bath work?
Electrical current passes through a set of plates in a module that is immersed in the water inside the foot bath tub. The foot bath water contains a special sea salt, so it has the mineral concentration of water from the ocean. While the client’s feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the foot bath system. This re-energizes the body and the red blood cells. It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body’s lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session.
7. How do ionic detox foot baths balance molecules?
The major health objective is to have healthy cell molecules. There must be a balance of positive and negative ions in cells and molecules. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, the atoms and molecules become positively-charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively-charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through the feet provides a full-body purge of all vital organs. This can alleviate menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne,
sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, wrinkles, aches and pains, and yeast infections. The internal cleansing can also contribute to faster disease healing and injury recovery.
Due to a busy and stressful lifestyle, many people do not eat a balanced diet. They may end up storing excessive quantities of toxins and waste products in their bodies. During a detoxifying foot bath session, ions from the module enter the body and begin to neutralize tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis.
8. How many detox foot baths will I need?
It is suggested that you begin with a total of 6 sessions over a 3–5 week period to maximize detoxification. After these initial sessions, you can switch to monthly sessions. The Healing Place offers a detox foot bath series package.
9. How quickly can I expect results for my condition?
This will depend on your personal condition, lifestyle, and your willingness to take responsibility for your health. The frequency of the detox foot bath sessions also plays a role in how quickly results are achieved.
