What happens during an Ion Cleanse Foot Detox treatment?

Everything about Ion Foot Cleanse and Detox

During an “Ion Cleanse Detox” foot bath, millions of ions enter your body and begin to immediately neutralize these tissue acid wastes.

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.

The pores in your feet are actually a channel; a conduit, through which your body attempts to cleanse itself of toxic wastes and heavy metals that are building up in many parts of your body. During the foot bath, you will actually see the cleansing process take place as life-long accumulated waste material is released into the water. These particles are released and are attracted to each other and you can actually see the ‘stuff’ floating in the water or sinking to the bottom or collecting around the edges. Everyone’s water turns brownish,  the color of ‘tea’ however what we are focusing on is what is floating in the water, sinking to the bottom, or collecting around the edges.

Lara Clement is a Registered Massage Therapist & holistic practitioner.  Lara worked in  a couple of spas and massage therapy clinics and while she loved the work she did she wanted to create something different – a different atmosphere and better calibre of service. The Self Centre Massage & Wellness Spa in Edmonton, ON is  known for providing high quality, reasonably priced services and  a ‘spa fusion’  relaxing environment.  Not too “Floofy”  and overpriced like many spas and not overly sterile like some clinics. We only hire highly trained therapists who graduate from a 2200 hour massage therapy program. We also love to take on one 2nd year practicum student at a time, and help them become the best. We focus on wellness,  healing & balance in a calm and soothing environment.
