What is the AquaVida Ionic FootSpa?
In our high-tech, high stress, toxic society, avoiding disease and maintaining vitality as we age requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body, hence the birth of Atlanta Colonic & Massage. The AquaVida Ionic Footbath is a treatment that helps detoxify the body faster and more effectively than herbal or fasting protocols and provides a comfortable and relaxing way to rid the body of toxins without precipitating a healing crisis or a Herksheimer’s reaction (fever, weakness, nausea, etc). The AquaVida Ionic Footbath counteracts toxins using ionization technology which neutralizes oppositely charged particles, then osmosis pulls the neutralized particles out through your feet. Ionization technology is a way may help people avoid disease and live more energetic lives.
Through research, we at Atlanta Colonic & Massage found that foot therapy was used for healing earlier than even we imagined. Archaeologist, Ed Case, discovered pictures in Egypt dating back to 2000 BC that documented foot treatments. Also, the Chinese use of foot manipulation is ancient and still commonly used today. Using the feet as a conduit to improve one’s overall health by unblocking vital energy pathways is an age old practice but today’s technology has enhanced its ability to pull toxins from the body.
Widely practiced in the United States since 2003, the therapeutic ionic footbath was born out of a concept formulated by US scientists and Nobel Prize winners, Peter Agre and Roderick Makinnon, who won the 2003 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for studies of tiny transportation tunnels in cell walls, working to eliminates diseases of the heart, kidneys and nervous system.
We are continually exposed to a seemingly endless variety of toxins from the food we eat, the pollution we breathe, and the emotional stress we endure. Eliminating these impurities can be challenging because symptoms may worsen before they are alleviated. Fatigue after a footbath typically indicates an overstressed condition and/or emotional upheaval suggesting release of emotional toxins along with chemical toxins. The The knowledgeable staff at ACM will help to support you in this period of adjustment.
You can feel lighter after the first session, and even better after a series of treatments. We are confident that following our detoxing program will alleviate symptoms and your body will feel cleansed.
People who have experienced the AquaVida footbath have reported elimination of the following conditions, while others have noticed a substantial reduction of symptoms:
- swollen or deteriorating joints
- dark circles under the eyes
- swollen joints
- yellow, green, and blotched complexions (often indicates a buildup of acid wastes inside the body)
up to 85% of those with the above ailments may experience an immediate benefit.
Because disease, surgeries, and many medical procedures leave the body weak and toxic, AquaVida Ionic Footbath detoxification treatments may prove to be essential to your ongoing health. Your cognitive skills improve and your energy increases while you enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing.

Your First Visit
When you arrive for an ionic AquaVida footbath our staff will first review your history. Next you’ll be escorted to the footbath therapy room where you can relax in one of our therapeutic massage chairs. A therapist will ask you to remove your shoes and socks . You will then immerse your feet into a tub of warm water. As pure water is a poor conductor of electricity, the therapist will add a little sea salt to increase conductivity. After your therapist turns on the Ionic array (a technically advanced electronic device that stimulates detoxification), you can relax for the next 30 minutes, knowing toxins are being gently extracted from your body through over 2,000 eccrine sweat glands in your feet. As you relax during the session you will see the water change color. By the end of the session the water will typically exibit a dark color. When your session is over your therapist will spray your feet clean, wipe them dry, and check your pH. You will be amazed at how alkaline your body has become in just a short time. Some have even reported a better release of toxins during their footbath after using the Far Infrared Sauna, so please inquire about our Package Specials.
As an added indicator you may request to have your pH level tested before and after the session to observe the alkalinity or acidity of your body. Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are typicaly a bit alkaline, whereas the body fluids of sick people tend to be acidic. An imbalanced pH can lead to the progression of many degenerative diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes. Cancer can typicaly flourish only in an acidic environment. In most people, the pH prior to their session is more acidic than the pH at the end of the session.

How often should I use the foot spa?
We recommend that the system be used either once a week for the first six weeks, or twice a week for the first three weeks. Sessions should be spaced no closer than once every three days. A maintenance program of one session every 2 weeks or once a month is often sufficient. You will be able to tell the appropriate maintenance schedule by how you feel.
Why does the water change color?
The chemical combination of salt, water, array coil and sweat account for color changes in the water. The water will also change color when there are no feet in the foot spa, partly because of the natural oxidation of the array coil. Although the variation of colors is fascinating, it is not the definitive indicator of the session.
How does the detoxification process work?
With over 500,000 sweat glands, our feet can eliminate many toxins and provide a great source for balancing positive and negative ions through osmosis. The array creates an energetic effect that assists the detoxification process by attracting a positive and negative ion exchange between the feet and the water.
What waste products are expelled by the sweat glands in the feet?
Endocrine glands respond quickly to stress. Endocrine sweat is an ultra filtrate of plasma forming a colorless hypo tonic solution that is 99% water, and 1% solutes, including sodium chloride, potassium, calcium, urea, ammonia, uric acid and phosphorus.
Will it remove medications from my body?
Only toxins are removed from the sweat glands in your feet. Vitamins, minerals and medications are not excreted.
Why is salt added to the water?
Water is a poor conductor of electricity on its own. To reach the correct frequency to energize the water, salt is required. As a general guide, a quarter of a teaspoon of salt is sufficient; however, this may vary depending on your water type. We recommend you use table salt, as it is easily dissolved in water. Please avoid sea/rock/low sodium salt.
Have you proof of what it cures?
The foot spa does not cure anything! The system can aid the body to balance its bio-energetic fields, which stimulates detoxification. When the electro-magnetic fields are balanced, the body’s organs will naturally function more efficiently. Each individual’s body is unique and ones’ reaction to the AquaVida system will vary, just as each of us react differently to medications, surgeries, and alternative therapies.
