How Does it Work?
Through a process called electrolysis, the water in an Ionic Foot Bath (in combination with added sea salt) is charged into positive and negative ions.  AC electricity is converted to low power DC electricity which flows through a patented electrode system that sits in the footbath. The electricity and the metal combine to split the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. These ions travel through the body, neutralize oppositely charged particles and through powerful osmotic pressure pull those neutralized particles out of the body through whatever skin surface is in contact with the water.  Within seconds, of placing your feet in the water, millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. What you see with a change in color to the water in the foot bath relates in a visual way to accumulated toxins from the body being released from the body into this bath.  The particles of fat and mucous residues found in the water after bathing, reflect the wastes that have left the body during the 30 minute session. Your body will feel lighter after the first session. Most patients have an enhanced sense of calmness, think more clearly, have less cravings, enjoy a greater sense of well-being, have more energy and with frequent use loose weight.

Most people using the Ion-Hydrotherapy Detox Footbath will experience numerous health benefits - even after just one session! Following a course of treatments, many clients will experience an improvement in conditions such as:

Look and Feel Younger: Clear skin, rough discolored areas smoothen, dark areas under the eyes lightened, allowing our skin’s color and beauty to naturally radiate through. The aging of our skin may slow presenting a more youthful appearance.
Rejuvenation: Look and feel great inside and out with beautiful skin, nails, and hair.
Restore and Regain Your Health: Create a stronger immunity, experience fewer aches and pains, or reduce allergies and flu symptoms.

Blood Cell Analysis
The human body is made of billions of microscopic cells. Red blood cells are slightly negatively charged along with the surfaces of the blood vessels through which the blood flows. This happens for a good reason. because identical charges repel each other, blood cells are not attracted to the artery walls or to each other allowing the blood to flow smoothly along these narrow channels.

Ionic Detox Footbath with Far Infrared Therapy (FIR) can improve your health by helping your body re-balance its bio-energy fields and stimulate the body’s detoxification. The body’s organs will naturally function better when the electro-magnetic fields are charged. The ion energy charged footbath will help you improve your overall health, enhance well-being and restores natural harmony, improving and strengthening the body's ability to heal itself...feel young again!

What Is The Frequency And Length of Each Therapy Session?
Session are 30 minutes long and are very relaxing.  If between the ages of 10 and 65, the recommended detoxification cleanse treatment cycle is 3x/week for 4 weeks, or 12 sessions with a three-week break before beginning the next sequence,  to insure a proper cleanse. For ages over 65 the recommended detoxification cleanse cycle is 2x/week for 6 weeks with a two-week break before beginning the next sequence. Parents of patients under age 10 should consult the Doctor.

Client’s who feel chronically tired after a therapy session or reports feeling angry, panicky, etc., the therapy sessions should be spaced further apart. Fatigue indicates an over stressed condition, and emotional upheaval indicates that emotional toxins are being released along with chemical ones. Some people might have symptoms of "Healing Crisis/Healing Reaction/Flare-Ups", which are temporary worsening of symptoms that occurs when the body is going through the process of healing itself through the elimination of toxins, which the body must go through to achieve good health. "Healing Crisis" is caused when the body is overloaded with toxins that have been trapped within its tissues for a long period of time, even decades. 

Symptoms include:  headache, flushing, skin eruptions, fever, nausea, joint pains, brain fog, fatigue, insomnia, sleepiness, muscle cramps, aches & pains, constipation, diarrhea, hot/cold flashes, night sweats, and cold/flu-like symptoms...basically, the body "retraces" old injuries, wounds, infections or other imbalances from its past.  Remember, it is only temporary and it is the path to renewed health!  If you develop any healing crisis symptoms, just go slow and steady with detoxing, pause and regroup.

How Many Sessions Will It Take Before I Notice An Improvement In My Health?
The full benefits of the Ionic Detox Footbath will not be apparent immediately, over time the benefits become more and more noticeable as the body detoxifies, and cells are energized with the correct electrical charge. Recommendation: a course of 6-14 footbath sessions to fully appreciate the powerful benefits to overall health, well being, and energy.

With continued sessions, one will start noticing that the water in the foot bath becomes less discolored and remains more like clear water.  It is a sign of being cleansed from accumulated toxic build-up in the body.

Why and What is Far Infrared Therapy (FIR)?
The FAR infrared ray belt uses 5 year old bamboo from certain remote mountains, refined through high temperatures. This bamboo charcoal emits far infrared rays (part of the sunlight spectrum just below visible red light) and negative ions. We can experience its energy as gentle, radiant heat, which can penetrate up to 3.5 inches beneath the skin. It works to enhance health by:

  • Improving micro circulation by exerting strong rotational and vibrational effects at the molecular level
  • Increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients in blood cells to the body's soft tissue areas
  • Enhancing white cell function, thereby increasing immune response and the elimination of foreign pathogens and cellular waste products
  • Removing accumulated toxins by improving lymph circulation, at the core of many health problems. When FIR waves are applied, the water molecules that encapsulate the toxins get heated up and start to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the water molecules. As the breakdown of water molecules occurs, encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released and the body gets rejuvenated.
  • Promoting regeneration and fast healing
  • Increasing metabolism between blood and tissue
  • Stimulating the hypothalamus, which controls the production of neuro-chemicals involved in such biological processes as sleep, mood, pain sensations and blood pressure


  • Increase blood flow
  • Assist in the resolution of inflammation and edema
  • Relieve muscle pain and spasms
  • Decrease joint stiffness
  • Relieve arthritis pain
  • Help regenerate soft tissues after injury
  • Increase the extensibility of collagen tissue
  • Relieve Raynaud's syndrome
  • Helps break down body fat for elimination/weight loss

Why Does The Water Change Color?
What’s really interesting is what one observes after experiencing a series of Ionic Foot Baths! With continued sessions one will start noticing that the water in the foot bath becomes less discolored and remains more like clear water.
This is a sign of being cleansed from accumulated toxic build-up in the body.

Many therapists and ionizer equipment suppliers make outrageous claims about the diagnosis of the color of the water.

Where do Toxins Come From?
Today our toxic exposure is at an all time high! We live in a society fraught with pollutants and toxins – natural and synthetic. They exist in our air, water, food, clothing and the environments in which we live, work, play and sleep. Cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine are also major sources of toxins. With our society’s busy lifestyles. poor diets (Standard American Diet = SAD), exposure to electrical equipment, and the increasing pollution in the environment, our bodies are encountering and storing unwanted toxins on a daily basis. Tissue acid wastes, chemicals and heavy metal residues now build up in our body faster than ever before, resulting in a greater incidence of allergies and mental and physical incapacitation. Pimples, rashes, dark circles under the eyes, swollen joints, often indicate a build-up of tissue acid wastes inside the body. Our bodies are depleted of crucial life-giving elements, leaving us to feel drained of energy or unable to heal naturally from illness, injury or medical procedures.
To relieve the strains on our organs, particularly the kidneys, liver, intestines and immune system, it is more important than ever to maintain a detoxification regimen. The Ionic Detox Footbath is designed to relieve these strains and detoxify the body through the skin, the largest organ in the human body.  These toxins accumulate in the body and can be stored in your fat cellsLipoSlim Lipo Laser can help you shrink your fat cells.       

 The Ionic Detox Footbath encourages the healthy balance of positive and negative ions to circulate around the body, resonating and stimulating cells as the frequency moves about, freeing up blocked energies and releasing cellular toxins that may have built up. The body's cells are correctly restored  into balance at a cellular level.

Throughout and between 1-2 days after the treatment as the body re-adjusts, toxins continue to be released from each cell and are excreted through the usual channels, in sweat, urine and feces. Therefore. the Ionic Detox Footbath  also aids the body's natural detoxification process.
