There are many reasons WHY to detox. Our body is susceptible to many types of toxins, such as food additives, alcohol, prescription drugs, pesticides, heavy metals, and/or environmental or industrial pollutants. It is so important to keep our body as clean as possible to function properly.

How this works:
 You soak your feet only by covering your ankle with clean water (reverse osmosis or distilled water) in a foot tub with an energizing cartridge that is responsible for the flow of electrons. This flow of electrons alters the water molecules by charging them into ions; it invigorates, reconditions and synchronizes the body’s natural ionic flow. The result is your body can detox safely at its own pace by metabolizing the residues in waste that are stored within the body. This pulls the toxins at a cellular level from the 2000 pores at the bottom of your feet, engaging the organs of detoxification, which can include the gallbladder.

Make sure you have no detergents lotions, oils or soaps on your body, as well as copper or this will influence the change in color.
When the system is activated -it creates electronic flow within the water.
You will be astounded and curious as the water changes color from clear to color and then to darker shades there are many reasons why the water changes color. The waters changing colors represents the part of the body that is being detoxed.

Myofascial ReleaseThe fascial system of our bodies surrounds and infuses every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ down to the cellular level. Fascia also separates, supports, connects, and protects everything. It is a 3-dimensional web connecting all of our parts to all the other parts under our skin. Due to physical trauma, inflammatory or infectious processes or structural imbalances, fascial strain can form, which can slowly tighten over time. As it tightens more and more, it produces dysfunction further and further from the initial strain. This strain is restrictive and flexibility and spontaneity of movement are lost. Myofascial Release is the application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to facilitate the release of fascial restrictions, thereby eliminating pain and returning normal function and flexibility to our muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs.

Cupping –
Tara will add this technique into her sessions.  Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place. Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins.  Cupping, the technique, is very useful and very safe.

Viseral Manipulation –
