For first time Ionic Foot Bath client, please review the following contraindications:
Our body is challenged by an increase of chemicals creating more auto-immune disease, allergies and common infections. Toxins and chemicals can get stored in the body’s joints, organs, arteries, nerves and tissues, disrupting their ability to function and thus creating an environment for disease, allergies and immune system breakdown. Some researchers have found that most toxins (mucus, fat, Candida, heavy metals, parasites and various bacteria) are positively charged when they reside in the body and, attracted to the negative field of the ionic foot bath water, exit through the approximate 2000 pores in the feet. These are not proof of any particular ailment or condition; rather it is a cleansing process.
You will sit in a calm quiet room with your feet immersed in a small tub of water with a device emitting special electrical currents to create negative ions in the water. Once the session ends you rinse your feet and can go on with your normal day or to a different session of your choice.
Before the Session:
*Avoid drinking liquids 1 hour before. It can make your bladder full while your feet are in the water.
