At our natural health center, our basic detoxification services are simple, safe, and effective. We have categorized our basic detoxification services into three groups to help you gauge what type of detoxification best suits your needs.
The Ionic Foot Detoxification Services is a bioenergetic cleanse that draws toxins and impurities from your foot. All of your organs are mapped out on the bottom of your feet, as indicated in the Asian Philosophical Theory of Reflexology. The ionic foot detox may be helpful in treating patients with hematomas, inflammation, congestion, yeast, heavy metals, and other assorted toxicities. Learn more about the health benefits of the Ionic Foot Detox.
The Basic Steam Treatment speeds up the metabolism and enhances immune system abilities using your body’s natural abilities to detoxify through sweat. In this basic detox session, the participant lies down on a table and a canopy is lowered over the person with their head remaining outside of the canopy. A towel may be placed to shield the person's face from steam and/or a cold pack may also be placed on the person's head to relieve the person from heat during the steam detox session. You may also upgrade your Basic Steam Detox Treatment to more Advanced Detoxification Services.
The Infrared Dry Sauna is a gentle, dry heat. Participants may sit in our infrared dry sauna at temperatures up to 140 degrees. The increased temperature decreases accumulated yeast, bacteria, and harmful pathogens. The gentle heat speeds up the metabolism and allows the body to boost immune function while supporting the body's healing abilities. Learn more about the health benefits of the infrared dry sauna detoxification.
Holistic Family Practice provides an infrared sauna for our patients to utilize in order to detoxify their bodies. The primary detoxification goal of having the infrared dry sauna in the wellness center is to gently increase circulation while decreasing unhealthy bacteria in the gastrointestinal (GI) system. Your immune system will thank you!

Steam therapy has been used by traditional healing systems around the world to improve and maintain good health naturally through the use of steam baths. Turkish baths, Indian sweat lodges, Finnish saunas, Japanese steam rooms -- these are just a few examples of cultures that harness the power of steam for deep relaxation and healing, as well as detoxification and cleansing. Hippocrates discovered that by stimulating the body's ability to create a fever the body would heal itself naturally from many diseases.
Our basic steam treatment is an invigorating metabolism booster. The participant lies down on a massage table and a canopy is lowered over the person before the detoxification begins. The person's head is out of the canopy and a towel is draped to prevent steam from moving into the person's face. Cold towels or cold packs can be placed on the head upon request to cool the body. Aromatherapy and herbs can be added to the steam bath to offer additional health benefits.

An Ionic Foot Detox bath takes place in a foot tub capable of negatively charging ions, which attract toxins. Positive ions help assist the body's natural detoxification process and help the body to detox more efficiently.
The ionic foot detox machine is a modern day energy device that safely and effectively helps balance the body's natural energy system. More specifically, it also works in essence by introducing a high level of negative ions into the water of a foot bath/soak, and the feet, utilizing principles of reflexology and the science of ionization and osmosis, create a positive cellular environment and enable the body's natural detoxification abilities and processes to function at their maximum during this detoxification treatment.
Negative ions attract positive ions. For this reason, it is recommended that you add a clear quartz crystal to the water to enhance the cleansing effect during an Ionic Foot Detox bath session.
