Coral Medical Health Spa offers the ion cleanse (often refered to as a foot detox) to assist with detoxification of the entire body. Coral is the only Medical Health Spa in the area to offer the ion cleanse in combination with infrared sauna and Metagenics ultraclear detoxification.
An ion is a charged atom that has gained or lost an electron, and creates a magnetic field capable of neutralizing oppositely charged particles. These neutralized particles are pulled out of the body through the skin via a process called osmosis, or the movement of particles through a membrane, from a lower concentration to a higher concentration. In this case, the higher concentration is the ion field set up by the array in the water. The array goes into the water with the hands, feet or body, and the control unit delivers a small direct current into the array, which causes the metal within the array, in combination with the water to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating the water into oxygen and hydrogen. The ions generated by the IonCleanse appear to travel through the body, and attach themselves to many different toxic substances, thereby neutralizing their positive or negative charges. After the first few minutes your feet are immersed in the water and the unit is turned on, the ions in the water interact with the minerals and chemicals in the water and you will shortly see a change in the water color. By the end of your 30 minute session there will be many more colors in the water.
