About this service
These days, we are used to talking about the health of our planet and the various ways the air, water, and land get polluted. However, we think less frequently about the way all this pollution finds its way into our bodies: in what we eat, drink, and even breathe. Thus, every day we ingest several grams of toxic substances that we cannot metabolize and sometimes can't even eliminate. Stress and the lack or excess of physical activity also have harmful effects on our body, which exacerbates the effects of these toxins in our bodies. It is important in our times to actively work on detoxification.
Faced with the complexity of the situation, we need to use a variety of tools to help address various functions in the human body.
Ion Cleanse creates the ideal detox session by producing ions and micro-currents, which are integrated into the pod's aromatherapy and far infrared treatment. The 3 active principles are:
- Infrared thermal energy
- Ion Cleanse
20-30 minutes of infrared light waves affect the subcutaneous adipose tissue, burning excess fat and removing toxins with sweat. The high temperature helps improve lymphatic circulation, removing toxins and unnecessary water, as well as eliminating waste, etc. By absorbing different types of herbal essences, you can help improve fluidity of the body's liquids, which promotes both relaxation and elimination. Ion Cleanse generates ions and micro-currents in a basin filled with warm water. A 20 to 30 minute ionic spa session helps the body to detoxify and brings a pleasant feeling of well-being.
Walking barefoot by the sea is a wonderful experience. It is one of the richest places in negative ions, which are key for our well-being. Ion Cleanse is based on the same principle: a foot bath rich in negative ions. One session per week not only stimulates the natural mechanisms of detoxification, but also facilitates the evacuation of substances that the body does not usually know how to manage.
Negative ions have particularly beneficial effects on:
- athletes (improved performance and recovery)
- people with fatigue, anxiety, or joint, skin, and sleep problems.
Some common questions about the service include:
- How many sessions should I do?
-Adults should start with one 20-minute session per week for the first 3 weeks, then you can move to one or two 20-30 minute session(s) per week. After 10 sessions, you can do 1 or 2 more sessions per month for maintenance.
- What is the point of ionic detoxification?
-The large quantity of ions produced by Ion Cleanse, as well as the electromagnetic oscillations, trigger cascading reactions in the body during and after each session, gradually leading to detoxification.
- Is there an age limit for doing Ion Cleanse?
-There is no age limit for detoxifying, though children should not do more than 15 minutes per session.
Preparing for the Service
As with all of our services, we recommend drinking plenty of water both before and after the session to help with the elimination of toxins. High quality water is provided at Origin Wellness.
We recommend wearing loose-fitting comfy clothes. It is important that you can pull up or roll up your pant legs, since you will put your feet in a basin of water.
If you don't take mineral supplements, it is a good idea to do some before starting Ion Cleanse and continuing to do so through the whole period of using Ion Cleanse.
