The La Conner Waterfront Day Spa offers a cleansing Ionic de-tox foot bath to it’s guests. Our equipment allows us to serve two guests at a time. Sessions last typically for 30 minutes. We need to know about your desire for this service so we can schedule the appropriate amount of time. The foot bath is thoroughly cleaned between services and utilizes a one time use liner for each session.

How does it work?
The liquid in the foot bath is ordinary water with a small amount of salt added to create an electrolyte. Your feet are placed in the bath along with an array (electrode). A wrist band completes an electrical circuit. The machine runs a very small but effective current through your body and due to the polarity toxins are pulled from the pores in your feet. The treatment lasts 30 minutes. During that time you will see the color of the water change from clear to yellow to brown, even perhaps black. You will also notice a foamy material in the water. This color change is created by array and is a natural part of the process. It’s the foamy material that is the actual oxidents and other pollutants that are being pulled from your body.
There is a direct relationship between your body’s ph and the ability of harmful bacteria and viruses to propagate. The reduction of free radicals in your body is another beneficial effect. This the same reason we derive benefit from foods with anti-oxidant qualities.
Personal Observations (from a client)
I found the foot bath very relaxing. I noticed a slight tingling sensation around my feet and from the wristband but it was not uncomfortable. The water did turn very dark and I had lots of foamy bits. It was pretty gross. All that stuff had to be wiped off my feet at the end of the session.
I slept very well each night of the sessions. I felt more energy in the morning when I woke up. I don’t have a way to quantify how much bad stuff was removed from my body except the ickyness of the water.
I intend to continue having Ionic de-tox Foot Bath sessions
