Purpose of a Foot Detox:
Anyone who would like to improve their overall health and well being may stand to benefit from detoxification. A detox foot spa session consists of the client soaking their feet in the ionic spa for approximately 30 minutes while ionization takes place effectively and safely stimulating the body’s own natural detoxification.
How Ionic Foot Spas Work:
An ion foot spa operates on the principles of electrochemistry. Modern science is still learning just how the human body works on a cellular level but it is understood that cells react, generate energy, and function, all on an electrochemical level.
The Ion Balance foot spa produces positive and negative ions in the foot bath water. For decades scientists have studied the positive benefits of increasing the amount of negative ions in a living organism’s environment. Studies have shown that increasing negative ions produces stronger growth in plants, reduces negative symptoms in humans and leaves people with an overall increased sense of well being.
Our toxic modern environment is generally deficient of beneficial negative ions (An ion is a charged particle that forms when an atom gains or loses an electron). Chemical pollution as well as EMF (electromagnetic frequency) pollution have been stripping our environment of positive energy. This greatly contributes to our bodies being out of balance. We can restore balance by increasing the amount of negative ions in our environment.
Ion Foot Detox Color Chart and What the Colors Mean:
There is some controversy over what happens to the water during a detox session. Sales people like to push the fact that the water changes from being clear to being quite dirty looking after a typical 30 minute detox session due mostly to the toxins being pulled out through the feet. Skeptics will quickly point out that the water will change color regardless of whether or not a persons feet are in the water. Experiments will confirm that the skeptics are correct in this case. The process of electrolysis and the ionic reaction that takes place will produce a color change. This reaction is influenced by whatever ionic particles are in the water. Different water from different regions, filtered water, biological contaminants from a persons feet or the container, will all influence what you see.
Proponents of detoxing with an ionic foot bath will not let the skeptics negate the positive effect experienced by so many people over recent years. When it comes to alternative medicine, not everything we experience has been proven or accepted by conventional western medicine. If it were, we would be a much healthier and happier society and much of the pharmaceutical industry would be out of work.
Many practitioners continue to use the colors as a gauge as to what part of the bodies are being affected. The general belief is that colors have unique vibrational energy signatures. These colors may have some connection to organs in the body. The traditional color chart shows which colors are believed to be associated with certain organs. While the colors have proven to be fascinating to observe over the years, many modern users receive treatments and experience the benefits of an ionic foot bath without paying attention to what the water looks like. No matter what, the feet are an excellent place for the body to absorb the healing negative ions.
