Laser Therapy

Safe, painless, and drug free. Invisible laser uses the same points as acupuncture and acupressure. When stimulated with a laser beam, specific points on the body signal the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins, among other things, reduce the production of stress hormones. Laser therapy is successfully used for weight loss, anxiety, stress, pain and digestion, and for treating addictions such as smoking.

Personal Health Analysis

When you are experiencing health problems, these symptoms are a signal from your body trying to tell you that something is wrong. According to Chinese Medicine your body is lacking and/or over burdened; we use Chinese Methods to target the cause of your symptoms and treat the source of the problem. We may suggest a simple change in your diet or a professional health product to help your body reverse the symptoms of ailments, sleep disorders, excess weight and health problems. Some of the most common complaints are: IBS, constipation, fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain, headaches, fatigue, acid, bloating, gas, and poor digestion.

Infrared Sauna

Infrared Sauna is safe and comfortable for heart patients, asthmatics, and those intolerant to heat. Infrared heat penetrates your skin up to 1.5 inches, allowing your body to sweat at a lower temperature of 40-50C instead of 80-90C. Sweat moves toxins out of you fat cells and onto your skin, allowing rapid cleansing without taxing your liver or kidneys. Toxins include chemicals, molds, heavy metals, pesticide residue and plastics. Infrared saunas are used worldwide with proven results for arthritis, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, heart disease, psoriasis, asthma, and more. ~Take off excess weight at 600 calories per 30-minute session!

Hot Tub

Hot Tub is a great way to relax and unwind, but they are designed for the therapeutic refreshment of one's body and mind. The warm water and the jets stimulate blood circulation and treat the symptoms of certain diseases.

Ion Cleanse

What are Ions?
An ion is a charged atom that has gained or lost an electron which creates a magnetic field (attraction) capable of attaching to and neutralizing oppositely charged particles (toxins in the body). These neutralized particles are extracted from the body through the process called osmosis. Osmosis is a scientific term that is used to describe the movement of particles through a membrane (the skin) from an area of lower concentration (the body made up of 60% water) to an area of higher concentration ( the basin of 100% water).

The ion generator is placed into the water alongside the feet while the power supply delivers a low level direct current to the ion generator. This causes the metals within the ion generator in combination with water and salt to generate positively and negatively charged ions. These ions travel through the body attaching themselves to a multitude of toxic substances, thereby neutralizing their positive or negative charge.

Why the feet?

Skin is the biggest organ of the body and it is a detoxifying organ. The body uses pores in the skin to dispose of unwanted substances from the system. These pores are larger and more concentrated on the hands, feet, and under the arms, which is why these are the first areas to perspire. There are over 2000 pores on the bottom of each foot. The blood in an average body will circulate completely in about 20-25 minutes, therefore in one 30 minute session all the blood in the body would have passed through the feet.

How often do you Ion Cleanse?

Each session will remove toxins from the body but the body will replace these with toxins from storage, therefore it is recommended that new users do 8-10 sessions about 48 hours apart to assist the body in clearing the system and storage. 1-2 sessions per month will then keep the system clear and prevent the body from the need to store excess toxins.

Chi Machine - Stress buster / Aerobic Exerciser

All you do is lie down and place your ankles into the rubberized, magnetized footrest, relax and breathe. This motion simulates the original concept of swimming. When the unit stops you will feel the wonderful sensation of "Chi" your vital life energy, race through your body.
