Ionic Detox Foot Baths: The Procedure and Treatment
Choose to go for the treatment at your favourite wellness centre or a reputed spa that provides specialised ionic detox foot bath services. During the treatment, warm saltwater is ionized while you relax and breathe easy. Your feet enjoy bathing and in the meantime, your body does away with toxins through the minute pores on your feet. These toxins are often the result of unhealthy food habits and certain medical conditions. Two electrodes are immersed in the tub of water containing salt and electrode. An electric current passes through the water, and the water gets discoloured, supposedly because of the toxins released from your body.
Whether you go for it at a nearby spa or make the most of it using a homemade foot bath treatment, the detox foot bath treatment is surely worth a try! When do you plan to give it a shot?
