Detoxing

Click here to go back to Holistic Therapies 

The Human body has a unique capability to heal itself.

When functioning properly, it can kill invading viruses and bacteria, destroy cancer cells and prevent virtually all disease. The problem faced today is more and more people are suffering from a wide range of illness. Today's modern society has created what many health care practitioners refer to as an epidemic. We have created what we now call environmental illness.

Environmental illness is perpetuated by current western medicine attempting to treat the symptom and not the underlying cause. Natural health care practitioners and physicians, who specialize in integrative medicine, recognize the need for detoxification. Although the human body was designed to handle a relatively large amount of toxins, our modern environment is contaminated to the point that most people need assistance to regain and maintain optimum health.

This is where the Detox Foot Spa, Foot Pads and Chi Machine come in.

Whether you are in good health and just want to feel extraordinary, or if you are currently suffering from chronic problems or an undiagnosed illness, regular detox sessions can improve your over all health and well-being.

    Chi Machine              30mins       15€

    The Chi Machine is placed on a firm flat surface, normally the floor. Use of a mat or rug, such as a yoga mat or comfortable rug, is recommended, though a clean carpeted surface is fine too. The user simply lies down and places their ankles on the cushioned footrest, which swings from side to side after the motor is turned on. This rhythmic motion creates a 'figure of eight' movement up and down the spine. The sideways movement of the footrest has a slightly elliptical trajectory, which provides a gentle twisting of the hips and spine. 

    This wave-like movement up and down the back replicates the spinal movement of fish and other animals as they move around. The gentle massage of internal organs, musculature and body tissue provided by this motion has many effects including deeper respiration, stimulation of the nervous system, and improved circulation of the blood and lymph systems.

    It also stimulates the flow of 'chi' throughout the body, and most people feel this as a tingling sensation in their limbs and torso, coupled with a heightened sense of well being, from their very first use of the machine.

     

    Is it good for back problems?

    One of the great potential benefits is the release of tension in the back, shoulders and neck. This is especially helpful if you use the machine regularly, as it will help to relieve the build up of tension that often accompanies continous bad posture or other possible causes for back problems.

    You should not use the machine immediately after you have suffered a back injury, although it can be use to help with rehabilitation. There are many practitioners able to assess your back problem comprehensively. They are best qualified to work on injuries and persistent conditions that need special attention.

    What is 'passive exercise'?

    The Surge of Chi Machine provides a direct form of exercise that we call 'passive' because the user is lying down in a completely relaxed state. They are not expending any energy in giving the body the exercise it needs. The exercise happens in a very balanced way, as the body responds naturally to the movement of the feet from side to side. More importantly, the main impact of this exercise is the rhythmic flexing of the back, shoulders and neck.

    Some might think that the old maxim 'no pain, no gain' should apply when it comes to getting exercise. But the body's need for exercise goes beyond philosophy. Nature based its health maintenance design on the stimulation that happens when all the different parts of the body are exercised. The exercise benefits of the Chi Machine are focused on the torso, rather then the arms and legs - flexing of the torso or trunk of the body stimulates all the major organs and nervous system.

    RELAX: Enjoy the ride! Your body will move rhythmically, responding to the movement of your feet. If you are fairly relaxed, you will experience a wave from your feet all the way to the top of your head, especially from the hips upwards. If you contract your muscles, your body may stay rigid in places and not join the wave. This is not what should be happening! A good way to relax is to focus quietly on your breath passing through your nose. No need to breathe forcefully, as it will deepen naturally during the movement - just watch the breath coming in and out in its natural rhythm. Focus 'inside' but not on your thoughts! Listen to the relaxing music, and relax. You can also focus your attention on parts of the anatomy where you feel aches or discomfort, which will help to bring relaxation there.

    Combining the Detox Foot Spa and The Chi Machine is the most beneficial way to detox. We offer a Detox Hour that combines both these treatments and a chakra balancing for 30€
