Isn't introducing salt into the body bad for you?


Eating too much salt is linked to high blood pressure, which can increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. However, with salt therapy, the salt enters your respiratory system, not your stomach, heart, and kidneys. In addition, the concentration of salt is .5-10 mg/m3(milligrams per cubic meter). To put that into perspective, the daily recommended salt intake for the average adult is 6g (grams). Therefore, the amount of salt entering your respiratory system is extremely low. Even if you eat that amount instead of breathing it, the amount of salt is insignificant. Salt entering the lungs kills bacteria, reduces inflammation, and loosens mucus.

What is salt room therapy?


Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment that alleviates the health problems associated with asthma, allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis, and a host of other respiratory illnesses. Along with healing benefits for chronic skin conditions; such as, eczema, psoriasis, acne, etc. It is a modern-day therapeutic method based on the principle of the natural salt mine micro-climate (Speleotherapy), where frequent exposure to the salt produced healing results for miners and others experiencing respiratory illnesses. As you relax in a comfortable, climate-controlled room surrounded by mineral salt, salt micro-particles are emitted into the room and passively enter your lungs to initiate the healing process.




How does salt therapy work?


A patented machine called a halogenerator produces dry saline aerosol by mechanically crushing rock salt grains to the size of 1 to 5 micrometers. The generator is installed on the outside wall of the salt rooms. The dry salt aerosol is blown into the rooms via a small opening in the wall. In addition to a halogenerator, the walls of salt therapy rooms are covered with mineral salt. The salt-filled room provides a negative ion environment (like the seashore), which contributes to wellbeing and promotes stress reduction in addition to helping your particular condition. These small particles of salt are negatively ionized and bear very high kinetic energy. This way they can travel into the deepest and smallest parts of the lungs. Negative ionization of salt aerosol increases the efficiency of healing. Inhaling the micro-salt particles assists you in expelling mucous and helps open constricted airways. It also boosts the immune system.

How does ProCell Micro-Channeling work?


Our micro-channeling device creates microscopic perforations in the outermost layer of the skin which initiate a natural healing response. These perforations also function as micro-channels to deliver the ProCell Serum into the skin. The ProCell Serum is specifically formulated to trigger the collagen-producing cells in your body to go into overdrive and create permanent new healthy skin! Micro-channeling can be used as a single form of therapy or it can be combined with other treatments to further enhance the effectiveness. The micro-channels allow for deeper product penetration, increasing the effectiveness of the topically applied ProCell Serum. ProCell Therapies uses a potent growth factor serum that is derived from human bone marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC). ProCell Serum is quite effective on its own, but when combined with micro-channeling, it accelerates healing, yielding even more dramatic results. After the procedure, the skin may appear red, with mild swelling, and your skin might feel tight and sensitive to the touch. Although these symptoms may take a day or two to resolve completely, they usually diminish significantly within a few hours after treatment.




Does Microchanneling treatments hurt?


Since each individual is different; there may be minimal physical discomfort. Serenity Salt Spa offers each client the option to utilize numbing cream for each procedure they undergo. (If you will be using numbing cream, please let Staff know at the time of scheduling). There is no lingering discomfort, and we have a number of strategies we employ to minimize discomfort during treatment. Post-procedure, most people report a “tight” feeling in their skin.




What is in the serum?


ProCell’s Microchannel Delivery Serum contains bone marrow-derived growth factors in a hyaluronic acid suspension. Both of these elements are naturally-occurring in the human body. There are no human, animal, or plant cells, DNA, blood, or any other foreign substances. The product has been used safely and effectively for over a decade




My skin is irritated. Can I use moisturizer?


It is normal for treatments to result in some skin irritation, especially for clients with more sensitive skin. Always wait a minimum of 90 minutes before putting anything else on the skin. During this time, it is normal for the skin to remain pink or light red. After the 90 minutes you can apply additional moisturizer or other products. Keep in mind however, that as your skin may be more sensitive than usual for several days after the treatment, especially strong topicals should be avoided until the skin returns to normal.




How long before I can expect to see results?


Though neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen) can take several weeks, most Clients will notice some improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin within the first 24 hours. After 2-3 treatments a thicker more robust, collagen filled cellular matrix will produce more consistent and noticeable improvement. And 6 or more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.




Are ther any contraindications?


If you have any underlying condition that significantly impairs your immune system, you will need to get a doctor’s approval before beginning any procedure, without approval; it is a good idea to avoid microchanneling. Examples include but are not limited to active radiation or chemotherapy, uncontrolled diabetes, chronic inflammatory skin disease, Accutane in the past 2 years, hemophilia or similar bleeding disorder. Also, anyone with stainless steel allergies should not do this treatment. We also discourage treatments for those who are pregnant or nursing.




Do I have to use the Microchanneling solution/aftercare serums?


Microchanneling stimulates the body to release peptides, cytokines and growth factors that induce collagen production. As you get older, the stem cells that produce these vital proteins lose efficacy and decline in population, so microchanneling alone becomes less and less effective. Because of premature aging, the Microchannel Delivery Serum and the post care Cellular Renewal Serum and Healing Accelerator Serum become more vital to improvement. Use of the ProCell aftercare products ensure the skin continuously receives potent, robust, pristine peptides, cytokines and growth factors even in between treatments. Think of diet and exercise – microchanneling without serums is like exercising without dieting. Results can be good with microchanneling only, but are significantly amplified with serums.

Do you feel off?


Trust what your body is telling you. A lot of our clients feel like they have tried absolutely everything to feel better. Oftentimes, detoxification is the missing piece to the health and wellness puzzle. Here’s why you should give the IonCleanse by AMD detox foot bath a try.




Why is it important to Detoxify?


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 diseases. The problem faced today is more and more people are suffering from a wide range of illnesses. 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 ION Foot Detox comes in. The role of the Ionic Foot Detox is a beneficial alternative therapy for helping the body to reduce unwanted toxins on its own; it is only an aid in the healing process carried out by your immune system. According to the theory of Nutritional Immunology, only your immune system can heal your body and cure you of your illness and disease. So, therapeutic detoxification is a valuable way of assisting the body to detoxify and cleanse its organs and tissues on its own. This detoxification and cleansing process carried out by your own body, miraculously aids in the healing process carried out by our immune system.




What is a detox foot bath session like?


During a session, the client sits in a comfortable chair. Most individuals find the experience VERY relaxing. The session takes about 30–40 minutes.




How does an ionic detox foot bath work?


Electrical current passes through a set of plates in a module that is immersed in the water inside the foot bathtub. The foot bath water contains special sea salt, so it has the mineral concentration of water from the ocean. While the client's feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the foot bath system. This re-energizes the body and the red blood cells. It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body's lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session.




How many ION Foot Detox Sessions will I need?


It is suggested that you begin with a total of 10 sessions over a 2 – 4-week period to maximize detoxification. After these initial sessions, you can switch to a monthly maintenance program.




How quickly can I expect results from my condition?


This will depend on your personal condition, lifestyle, and your willingness to take responsibility for your health. The frequency of the ION Foot Detox sessions also plays a role in how quickly results are achieved.




What to expect after an Ionic Foot Detox Bath detoxification session...


Most clients experience a general sense of wellness following each session, which might include the following:

  • Increased Energy
  • Enhanced Sense of Calmness
  • Clearer Thought Process
