Ionic Foot Detox
Relax in our Salt room whilst we kick start a detox for your whole body with the simple and ancient Chinese method of an Ionic foot spa. The idea behind ionic foot baths is a process called electrolysis, a method of using an electrical current to create a chemical reaction. Energy is charged through the saltwater, breaking down water molecules into ions. Warm water opens the pores of the feet, salt acts as an anti-inflammatory astringent, ions are absorbed, and the detoxification of your feet begins.
Once the Himalayan salt has been added to the foot bath, you’ll see the water change colour, often to a dark mud-brown, or in some cases, black colour. The colour change occurs as a result of the salt reacting with the ionic cartridge (or other method used to produce the ionic charge). It is not a result of toxins leaving your body, as some mistakenly believe.
