The purpose of an external detoxification service is to assist the body's natural methods of removing unwanted toxins. It should be sufficient enough for the body to rid itself of toxins naturally through elimination and sweating. However, when the body is over-loaded or can not keep up with the amount of toxins being introduced these toxins are stored in the body by the fat cells. One of the functions of a fat cell is to protect the body by binding with toxins.
Excess toxins in the body can cause a lot of damage and can be reflected in a strong body odor, inflammation and over a long period of time serious disease.
At Open Circle Holistic Wellness we offer the following services to assist the body's natural detoxificaton functions.
The infrared sauna uses the non-visible infrared spectrum of sunlight which penetrates the body deeply and has been clinically proven to stimulate metabolism, reduce inflammation, assist weight loss and aid in detoxification. Clinical studies also report the infrared sauna to help with arthritis and fibromyalgia. According to Dr. Oz the heat from the infrared sauna helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation.
Ion Detox Foot Bath
The purpose of the Ion Detox Foot Bath is to introduce negative and positive ions into the body through the pores of the feet to neutralize toxins in the body for safe removal.
Detox Foot Pads
Detox foot pads are placed on the soles of your feet and worn overnight. While you sleep the bottom of your feet sweat and toxins are absorbed into the foot pads.
Himalayan Sea Salts & Lamps
Himalayan salt is harvested 5000 feet deep underground... by hand according to an ages old tradition. This salt color ranges from pink to red and contains 84-90 trace minerals that rejuvenate and detoxify the body. When used in a bath they also make skin soft.
Salt lamps release negative ions into the air which help reduce indoor air pollutants and electro-smog. Negative ions in the air are also produced by rainstorms, waterfalls, lightning, sunlight, ocean waves, and wind. Remember how good it feels to breathe outside after a rainfall or how calming it is to sit by the ocean.
Himalayan salt lamps make an excellent addition to any room due to their unique and natural appearance and they are perfect for a bedroom to rid it of pollution and common allergens like pollen and dust. In a baby's room they'll cast a soft and warm glow which makes the perfect night light. The smaller usb connected salt lamps are perfect to use around computers. We have one in every room here and leave it on 24 hours/day.
Therapeutic Grade and Organic
More than 80% of our pharmaceuticals are plant-based but turn out to be toxic to our bodies. By going directly to the source, the plant itself, we are able to gain the full value of its healing properties without the harmful side-effects or dependencies.
The essential oils that we carry have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. We also carry some oils that will enhance mood, improve air quality through diffusion and increase oxygenation in the body.
An organic and therapeutic grade essential oil is the cleanest and purest form of essential oil and the best oil to use for healing. Not all essential oils are available organic because not all plants are grown organically (without the use of chemicals and/or pesticides).
