It’s important to get rid of toxins from your body. There are many ways to do that, and one method that is gaining popularity currently is foot detox. An ionic foot detox will help your body get rid of toxins that it accumulated through air pollution, chemical products, and unhealthy eating.
At Vitality Medi Spa, our experts offer a relaxing ionic foot detox that will take your stress and toxins away. It’s safe and relaxing and is done using an ionizing machine. Let’s learn how it’s done.
The details of ionic foot detox
Let’s begin by discussing if it really works or not. There is a lot of research that has been done to prove that it’s indeed a scientific method to rid the body of harmful toxins.
In this process, there will be a bath apparatus including a bowl that will be filled with salt water. The apparatus will have electrodes in it. You will have to dip your feet in the bowl. The electrodes in the apparatus will generate a low and harmless electric current in the water. It’s a 30-minute process and you can see the water change its color as the time goes by. At the end, it will turn into rust color and all the sludge will float on top of it.
The color change occurs due to the presence of impurities. These impurities are present in your body and as they leave you, the water will change its color. Keep in mind that tap water also consists of impurities so the water will change color even if your feet are not in the bath. However, there is a significant difference in the color of the bath with someone’s feet in it and a bath with just tap water.
The color changing process
When the ionization process begins, there is a chemical reaction that involves water, minerals in the water, salt, and electricity from the ionization electrodes. As a result, the color of the water changes to a light brown and then to a darker shade of apple juice. The process involves oxidization that causes a rust color to appear in the bath. The color change also indicates the toxins that are leaving your body. Our experts can show you a color chart to help you understand the various stages of the bath process and what each color indicates.
For example, you might see a hint of green in the brown water. The colors indicate what part of the body is being detoxified and how much.
Since each person has different levels of toxins and in different parts, the water color from your session might be different than the water color in someone else’s session. The overall health of the body determines the final color of the bath.
You’ll feel the difference immediately as you will feel more relaxed and comfortable after the session.
