Detox - 2. Ion Detox

What it is ?

You put your feet in a basin filled with warm water and a pinch of salt, an ionic cleanser is dipped in it and you sit still for 30 minutes. The ionic cleanser proceeds to rid your body of toxins.This is the most relaxing way to get rid of the toxins present in the body. A flow of warm water will flow under your feet and the positive and negative ions in the water will attach themselves to the toxins present in the body. Toxins that are insoluble will also dissolve in this water. The colour of the toxins indicates Whatever color the water turns is supposed to be indicative of what is wrong with your body ( for example black indicates liver problem and so on)

Where ?

I have done it about 3-4 times so far. My husband was very suspicious in the beginning like all Indians, saying that it’s a trick and that the water would automatically turn dirty colours even if you do not dip your feet in it. However after research and validation with friends who had a detox machine at home, it was confirmed that’s it’s a genuine treatment which even Clinique Suisse does at its clinic in Singapore.

Pasaraya Grande opposite the gym - You sit in a comfortable seat and the attendant, who speaks English, wears a mock nurse’s uniform. It’s all sterile and professional-looking and the attendant attempts to take you through the therapeutic effects of getting a detox. Cost: Rp 250,000

Mal Ambasador 4th floor.A small little open and shabby place with a low sofa and male attendants. The two male attendants, needless to say, don’t speak English and you’re stared at by the passerby’s who wonder why you don’t go to a better place for a pedicure. Cost: Rp 60,000

Personal Rating

There are some do’s and don’t for this please check those like having no metallic insertions in the body and all that. I think it’s a serious treatment if clinique Suisse does it and it may not make you feel anything instantly except the feel good cleansing when you look at the dirty tub of water.
