Close your eyes and, if you like, experience this relaxing foot soak & scrub as a prelude to a bodywork session.
This is a complimentary service that can be added upon arrival or by text but it does lessen your table time by about 15 minutes. Or you can purchase it as part of an enhanced session for a total of 75 minutes.
Like the idea of just a foot soak & scrub? Call for details. A minimum 1/2 hour is required, but we will make it worth your while.
The Vitatron Iontobath is an exciting addition to your health regimen. It begins with an oral mineral taste test. A diluted solution of minerals, set to taste level is squirted in your mouth. If you cannot taste it, there is potentially a deficiency. No worries, the deficiency is easily remedied with the application of autopolarizing galvanic currents in a footbath that deliver ionic nutrients to the blood stream. How will you know? Another sample of the mineral should reveal a taste sense which indicates that your blood stream is loaded with the ion. However, this is a revealing factor in your overall health status. Taste and the choice of foods is affected by mineral deficiencies. When a taste sense is suppressed, many people compensate with the overuse of salt and sugar. A zinc or chromium deficiency is often associated with sugar cravings. A potassium deficiency may be related to salt cravings. When these deficiencies are corrected, the cravings go away.
It usually takes months for a deficiency to be resolved through supplementation alone. The reason is because of faulty digestion. If food is not properly digested, absorbed, and assimilated, your body cells don't receive the nourishment they need for proper functioning. The Iontobath is designed to put the minerals directly into the blood stream and bypass the faulty digestion through a process called iontophoresis. Iontophoresis delivers nutrients through the skin (transdermally) by means of voltage which passes negative and positive charges through the body. It is considered a non-invasive therapy and has wonderful applications in the delivery of nutrients where they will do the most good ~ the blood stream. This is called ElectroNutritionTM.
We test for twelve nutrients in the taste test, however, by using the Dead Sea salts (a natural source for minerals) and fulvic acid (a natural source for amino acids, trace minerals, and phytonutrients), you are getting so much more nutrition. We suggest a few weeks of this therapy and in between treatment supplemention. Oral supplements alone are not easy to assimilate and may take years to give results. This will be a boon to any change you are trying to make in your diet as you will experience less cravings.
Iontotherapy is not new and its application extends from the foot bath to the use of electrodes on the skin to deliver active ions topically. The ions penetrate the deep basal layer, the mucous membranes and up to 3 cm deep into the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves using pulsed, low-voltage direct current helping to reduce pain, swelling and, in some cases, calcifications such as, bone and heel spurs. After the iontotherapy treatment, it is important to leave the ion or nutrient solution in place for several hours so do not wash off the skin. This allows for passive diffusion after the current has been removed.
Treatments should be no more than 3 times a week. Iontotherapy only sessions can be scheduled for 1/2 hour treatments. Please ask about our 10 session (2-3x a week) discount.
Sound is an integral part of our existence. Sound and hearing are vibrational. Sound was the first thing used in creation. When tuning forks are sounded in the ears or placed on the body specific vibrations are transferred to the cells which causes nitric oxide levels to rise and fall. Scientists call this rising and falling "puffing" and this activity is a universal source of health and well-being.
We integrate tuning forks in our sessions because they add a pleasantness to the session and when integrated with mindful breathing practices on the polarity table is one of the quickest and most effective ways to achieve relaxation.
We also use tuning forks on the body to disperse the energy when we discover specific painful spots that are deep within the tissues and may be too tender under deep pressure. Resistance can give way to gentle vibration and we have had effective results combining tuning forks and polarity therapy bodywork techniques.
Infrared therapy has scientifically been proven to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, promote blood circulation, improve microcirculation, strengthen immunity against disease, improve metabolism, and to promote growth and assist the body’s healing mechanism. It is beneficial to those who suffer muscle and joint stiffness, spasms, sprains, or chronic arthritic muscle and joint pain.
The TDP mineral lamp is a tested therapeutic tool called the “Miracle Lamp” in China because of its success in helping with chronic ailments. The lamp features a plate coated with a formulation of 33 minerals that can be found in appreciable quantities in your body. When the mineral lamp is heated to a certain temperature, it emits far infrared energy which penetrates the skin up to 3 ½ inches, much deeper than a heating pad, and because it stimulates micro circulation, higher levels of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to injured cells while toxins and cellular wastes are eliminated and energy flow improves.
Couple the Vitatron Iontobath with the Far Infrared Therapy and you've got a winning combination. This treatment is available with the Enhanced Bodywork experience, however, it may deem beneficial if you are experiencing acute pain or spasms. As always, talk to your practitioner if you want it included in your regular sessions.
Plants contain vital force and are able to take inorganic mineral matter and convert it into living organic material and when ingested into the animal or human is sustaining and renewing its life process.

They assist the body in doing things it cannot or is not doing on its own. Herbal medicine acts as a therapeutic and is taken in moderation.
