Hailed as the most advanced body detoxification system, the Platinum Detox Foot Spa has been well received by the UK spa market.
Designed to detoxify and assist in general wellbeing, the Platinum Detox Foot Spa unveils an intriguing aspect of spa therapy, with a newly designed machine that extracts toxins from the body via the feet. This unique principle is based on the understanding of skin as an important eliminative organ and the releasing of heavy metals through the skin`s pores. The company explains;
“It has been documented that the skin`s sweat glands, when combined, can perform as much detoxification as one (or both) kidneys. Therefore, it is very important to support skin detoxification to the maximum. If the kidneys are damaged, then helping the skin will help the kidneys indirectly but effectively. The skin is not only an avenue for the release of toxins, but a detoxifying agent in its own right. Like the liver and lungs, the skin also has the ability to transform toxins from lipid-soluble, or oil based compounds, into water-soluble forms.”
This concept is confirmed in the book by Drs. Bennett and Barrie ‘The Seven-Day Detox Miracle’ which proclaims; “The body stores many toxins in fatty tissue. Sweating therapy reduces fat stores quickly, releasing these poisons for excretion through the stimulation of receptors in the fat. Tissue biochemistry and nervous system functioning undergo changes in this process, activating fat stores and facilitating fat loss. In fact, detoxification is probably one of the healthiest ways to reduce fat and lose weight.”
The Platinum Detox is a low voltage electric powered machine which applies similar principals to that of electrolysis machines used in the depuration of residual waters. It makes use of the existing membrane of the sebaceous glands, the Eccrine sweat glands of the feet.
A typical treatment takes 30 minutes and whilst the company is not currently making any medical claims, it is known that reducing the body’s toxins can produce improvements in:
? Kidney and Liver Function
? Menstrual Pain
? Skin Complexion
? General Body Balance
? Weight Loss
? Lactic Acid Levels
