The ION SPA footbath efficiently detoxifies the body at the cellular level, alkalizing the blood and entire body. Over time, the body becomes stronger, the organs function correctly and positive effects can usually be noticed within just a few treatments. Most practitioners understand that the detoxification process is a necessary function of life. If one is injured, sick, suffering from high stress, etc, the body may not function as it was meant to. This decreased function can lead to additional more serious conditions such as Osteoporosis, Arthritis, Eczema, Psoriasis and even mood-swings. When the body is regularly detoxified, the body immediately responds (like it was re-booted) and performs the functions necessary to better its condition.
Users of the ION SPA can either submerge their feet or hands into the tub. We suggest the feet. Salt is added to the water to increase the conductivity. This allows for the ionization process and ultimately the ion conversion.
Usually within 10-minutes of operation the water will start to turn light yellow in color and you may see some small black specks or small rocks on the bottom of the tub. These are metals which have bonded together. After 20 minutes you may start to see other colors and substances forming in the water. This is completely natural and generated by the ionization process, the user’s perspiration, and the salt and the minerals in the water. The ION SPA unit employs an oscillating array (the black square electrode in the water). Treatment waves and mode setting will determine the amount of reaction in the water. When the treatment is completed (25-minutes), the water will usually have changed color and additional particles of debris will be found in the water.
There are many variables causing the water color changes. Minerals, chlorine and other contaminants will increase water coloration and debris formation. recommends the use of filtered water for each treatment. This will limit additional coloration from minerals and contaminants. As a “general rule of thumb”, we never discuss the water quality or color changes. The action from the ION SPA detoxification session is internal not external. If you run the ION SPA without a submerged body part, the water will be ionized and turn to a very soft yellowish color. However, once a body part is submerged, the ION SPA unit ionizes the water which now contains perspiration from the user.
There is no better way to detoxify, alkalize or rebalance your body’s energy than by regular use of the ION SPA.
There are water color charts that try to distinguish and explain the water color changes and debris formation. These colors or organ colors are known to those who practice Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, there is no medical technique available to prove these claims. That is why we don’t provide practitioners with a color chart and we don’t make diagnostic claims from water color changes. A water color chart is provided at the bottom of this page for personal reference only.
This is a simple TCM water color chart corresponding with the material or organ debris that may be ionized in the water during the detoxifying process. Again, certain minerals and contaminants already present in the water may also result in additional debris and color changes. For reference only.
