Ionic Footbath | Refresh Wellness

The ionic footbath is a 30 minute process that enhances your body’s ability to detoxify and energize.

What happens during the ionic footbath?

Your feet are placed in a basin of warm water with an ionizer (array). A low level current, delivered through the array, splits the water molecules (ionization). This creates negative ions, much like you would experience at the beach as waves crash onto the rocks (which is why we all feel so amazing at the beach and in forests where negative ions are abundant).

These ions, absorbed by the body, travel and negate free radicals. By giving the body a bio-charge or energy boost, the body can do more work on healing and repairing itself. The ionic footbath balances energy pathways within the body which improves circulation, increases relaxation and reduces symptomatic or chronic inflammation.

The water will proceed to change color throughout your session. The water will always take on an orangish/brown tint from a chemical reaction with the water and metal, but by the end of the session, the water can have many different shades and textures that will vary from person to person and session to session. There is a chart that can help you identify from where in the body toxins are being released.

As the body ages, cells start to lose efficiency reducing their ability to detoxify and eliminate as efficiently as they should. The ionic foot bath energizes the cells and organs by electrically charging the electro-magnetic fields within the body so that they can carry out their function. Our bodies are electric in nature so you can think of it as charging your batteries.

It is recommended to have 2-3 footbaths a week if you are actively working on detoxifying the body or healing chronic illness/infection. Otherwise, one every week or two for preventative care.

This makes a great add on service after a wrap or using the sauna to continue drawing out toxins that were released.
