RE: Detox Foot Spas

Salons Direct sell them for £495! I've seen people selling the treatments on the web for £30/session, need a lot of session to get your money back!! Someone told me that they were very big at the beauty show last year, but I don't know anyone who's tried it.

RE: Detox Foot Spas

Hi,

I could be classed somewhat as an expert in this field as I have used many brands on Detox Foot Spa over the last 4 years.

It is a very very popular treatment at my salon, in fact my most popular treatment. The most important part of considering purchasing one of these machines is the customer service that the companies offer. I would avoid Aqua Detox like the plague (my machine that cost £1300 blew up while a client was having the treatment and then the company went into liquidation and I couldn't get my money back) I would recommend you use a reputable company who can offer after-sales support and will come out and see you for demos, and see to any problems you may encounter. I am now totally satisfied (having used several detox foot spa companies) with O2 Detox. Their machines are the cheapest (£485) and by far the best quality and they offer the best customer service.

Also all of their promotional material is free of charge, which I know is only a minor expense, but when you are being charged £20+ for a few leaflets, it all adds up.

Love and light

I and my clients have tried the detox foot pads, they are simply sensational. I am a great advocate. Before investing a large sumof money in a machine, why not try the easy to appy footpads yourself at £4.00 per pair. You will visibly see the toxins being eliminated when you place the pads under your feet at night and remove them in the morning. The result is astounding. My clients reported "good night sleep in several years" after using the pads.

Peacexxx

These are a con.

As far as I am aware (I haven't tested them), the foot pads go brown on contact with just plain water.

The foot baths work by charging the salts in the water, and the water will go brown with no feet near them. They have been featured on watchdog: [DLMURL] http://www.bbc.co.uk/consumer/tv_and_radio/watchdog/reports/health_and_beauty/health_20070109_2.shtml[/DLMURL]

It's interesting that this Watchdog report was dated Jan 07 when dtox, who wrote her post above in 2005 said that Aqua Detox had gone into liquidation and she couldn't get her money back. Hmmm........

It really doesn't matter that the report spcifies Aqua Detox (although the products were traded following the bankruptcy via another company - think it may have been the agenta group, but not sure) - the principle behind foot detoxes are all the same - and the water goes brown if there are feet in the bath or not...

Apparantly the same is true of the patches, if they are made wet, due to a light brown powder in the patch that isn't obvious till the patch comes into contact with water or sweat...

Aqua detox, detox patches and colours

Trow is quite right, I believe there have been 3 companies called aqua detox, aqua detox international and some other aqua detox variant, all gone in to liquidation, have not heard of a fourth one emerging.

Aqua Detox where major culprits in advertising the colour change as being toxins from the body rather than colour change of the saline solution. I was at a show in Manchester in 2005 when [url]Aqua Detox[/url] where demonstrating the foot spa and where telling people that all that muck was coming from them.

I remain convinced that the treatment works, I feel the benefit every time and used to work as a therapist with a [url]Cell Med Detox[/url] foot spa and most people reported improvements.

I didn't know that about the patches though but again I use them and can only report a benefit from them. Although anecdotal I know of a web site full of [url]testimonies on patch it[/url].

The detox foot spas have come down greatly in price and you get a [url]bio energiser[/url] for £159.
