Similar to old pennies, environmental toxins are ubiquitous, harmful if swallowed, and may contain trace amounts of Abraham Lincoln. Hand toxins their tiny stovepipe hats with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 60-minute detoxifying footbath at Body Detox Center (a $60 value).
Founded by molecular biologist and Registered Nurse Kimberly Lowman, Body Detox Center is a spa-like retreat for those looking to shed sluggishness and restore inner balance. The detoxifying footbath is the center's prime method of cleansing, using a combination of magnet treatment and ionic frequencies to lure harmful chemicals, metals, and swallowed gum out of the body through the soles. The relaxing flipper soak takes just 60 minutes and can leave clients with clearer minds, fewer aches and pains, increased energy, and more consistent emoticons. Check the website for answers to a multitude of frequently asked questions and to learn what you should expect to find in the basin at the end of the footbath, such as black flecks indicating a surplus of heavy metals or orangeness denoting you've eaten too many nachos.
Body Detox Center
Owner Kimberly Lowman ensures that the Body Detox Center lives up to its name by offering natural, detoxifying treatments that promote optimal well-being. To purge toxins from the skin, clients dip their feet into an electrically stimulated salt-infused footbath. During three cycles of vibrations, Kimberly watches as the water transforms colors and textures, "reading [the] water, like one reads tea leaves…" wrote Jen Mulson for The Gazette. Kimberly’s also helps clients detox on the go with a personal line of North Pole Magnets that come in a variety of easy-to-wear accessories including bracelets, ankle wraps, and alloy-woven footie pajamas. The center also carries Phoenix Nutritional supplements available for purchase.
