How it Works


The principle behind the ionic detoxification system is to use a microcurrent to facilitate the movement or transfer of ions in and out of cells as well as to restore the balance between their positive and negative charges. This painless, non-invasive microcurrent thus opens the pathways to vital ion channels. Therefore, supplementation with ionic energy produced by the negative ion generator when immersed in the water basin penetrates the skin and initiates the internal processes of detoxification, nutrient assimilation and fluid rebalancing.

Negative ions are catalysts of metabolic functions and are necessary for the assimilation of precious oxygen and water into the body’s tissues. This process stimulates and facilitates the elimination of acidifying free radicals and improves the permeability and organization of cell membranes. Indeed, through this decrease in surface tension, nutrients, enzymes, water and oxygen flow better through intracellular fluids, and waste products are more easily eliminated. This results in a deep stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems and an increased rate of waste removal by the kidneys, liver, intestines, skin and lungs. In this way, the technology helps the body to gradually oxygenate, hydrate and neutralize acidic and corrosive metabolic wastes for ultimate removal by natural excretion (elimination organs).

Furthermore, the stimulation of reflexology points (acupuncture) under the feet by the negative ions also has a major impact on the body’s energy network (meridians). The stimulation of this system modifies, by electric induction, the functional condition of the skin’s nerve endings (reflex zones), which transmit their messages into the nerve centers through the peripheral nerves and then along the spinal cord up to the brain. The numerous benefits of this approach can be found at all levels. It has been observed that negative ion stimulation of human metabolism acts on serotonin levels, on the endocrine glands (suprarenal glands), on the Krebs cycle, on the oxygenation of tissues and on the vegetative nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic). Ionic stimulation harmonizes and considerably improves the bio-energetic behaviour of the body’s fluids. The fluids then react in ways that allow the body to rediscover its balance in relation to its natural functions.

During the ionic session, as the warm and salty water is ionized inside the basin, it is split into H+ and OH- ions (and sometimes into H3O+ and H2O2 ions) similar to the way in which water cascading over a waterfall becomes ionized. Ionized molecules with a negative polarity (anions) are then capable of penetrating the numerous pores of the feet. Circulatory systems can then transport precious reducer (electron donor) ions throughout the body. As they pass through the cell, these negative ions neutralize oppositely charged, acidifying and stress-inducing toxic wastes (cations) by giving them an electron (the antioxidant principle). Soon, the body is able to eliminate metabolic wastes more easily and absorb essential nutrients; the resulting regenerative benefits are numerous and confirmed by thousands of users.

Do not believe the common assumption that the colored residue observed in the basin after an ionic bath comes entirely from the pores on your feet. This belief is erroneous and is not based on any proven scientific data. The agglomerated residue and the colors that you see in the basin (more than 75%) are created by the ionic generator reacting with the natural minerals in the water and the sea salt that is added to the basin to increase the electrical conductivity of the water itself. According to our observations, less than 25% of the total color and residues found in the basin are of organic origin.

Indeed, the primary goal of this technology is to transfer precious negative ions to the body, not to «purge» the body of toxins through the pores of the hands and feet. The residual color of the water after each session differs from one user to the next and depends on several operational criteria.

It is important to note that the effects of the device are numerous and varied, so be alert to subtle transformations taking place within you during and after the session. It is suggested that a meditative state be adopted during sessions to enhance the effectiveness of the technology.
