Our Holistic Detox and Recovery Spa Services

Spa Services include:
  • Ionic foot baths
  • Nebulized glutathione treatments
  • Therapeutic massage treatments
  • Sauna cleansing
  • Colon Hydrotherapy

Spa Services: Ionic Foot Baths

Ionic Foot BathsToxins that have built up within the body and brain can have a number of effects, not the least of which is slowing you down and leaving you feeling exhausted or drained. An ionic foot bath is designed to help remove toxins from the body. Ionic  foot baths send a small current through the body that produces positively charged ions. These ions neutralize negatively charged ions in the body, allowing the toxins to leave the body through the bottom of the feet.

Footbaths are ideal for individuals who want a powerful cleansing treatment that is approachable and relaxing. In just thirty minutes, you’ll be able to see the results of your holistic detox process within the foot tub. This natural remedy for removing harmful toxins from the body may also help reduce cravings for the substances once responsible for toxic buildup.

Ionic foot baths are available several times a week in our spa room as a safe, holistic detox service. For more information click to learn how they work to reduce toxicity in the body.

Spa Services Include: Nebulized Glutathione

Nebulized GlutathioneAntioxidants help prevent early cell death and neurochemical imbalances by preventing free radicals – ions created when the body breaks down toxins – from creating devastating chemical chain reactions. If not impeded, the resulting reactions within the body and brain can contribute to a variety of health issues like inflammation, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Chemical toxins from what we breathe, eat, or drink can also hamper the brain’s ability to regulate itself.

Glutathione can boost the actions of other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10 and help the brain restore essential neurotransmitters. Our nebulized glutathione treatment administers this master antioxidant directly to the lungs, helping to restore balance within the body. As an added benefit, this treatment is administered via a vaporizer, eliminating the need for needles while still ensuring glutathione enters the bloodstream quickly.

Nebulized Glutathione is offered and encouraged daily in the spa room. It is a master antioxidant and supports detoxification pathways. Find out more about this essential service offered.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic MassageMassage services do more than just provide relaxation and restoration; massage can also help to support holistic detox and addiction recovery. Our massage therapists administer precise sequences of movements that stimulate the right area of the body to stress and compress tissue, improve circulation, mobilize lymph, and relieve muscle tension. Massages can also help a person achieve a better level of relaxation that helps to decrease stress, improve sleep, and provide a break from the demands of daily life.

Massage is an ideal alternative to pharmaceutical means of combating physical or mental health disorders. For those in addiction recovery, massage can serve as an important conduit for relieving anxiety, depression, and other co-occurring conditions that may have contributed to substance use.

We feel it is an important part of the healing process as it aids in mental and physical relaxation while reducing toxins that are stored in our muscles.

Sauna Treatment

sauna treatmentA sauna is a relaxing environment that uses the powers of heat and steam to aid in the healing of the body. Saunas have been used for thousands of years to heal the body and mind. Sauna services can naturally detoxify the body, boost immunity, provide pain relief, and improve cardiovascular health.

Sauna detoxification is a great way to naturally remove toxins from the body. Sweat is the body’s natural way of purging toxins via the pores on the skin’s surface. The advantage of this method is that it bypasses the internal organs and instead uses the skin as a more direct avenue for releasing toxins, thereby reducing the burden on the liver and kidneys.

The cornerstone of our holistic detoxification program is our bio-transformative sauna protocol. Contact us to find out how we use targeted supplementation and exercise to prime your body for the most effective toxin release.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon HydrotherapyColon purging techniques can help remove toxins from the body. Toxins frequently accumulate within the body, but when the body attempts to eliminate toxins in the natural fashion, they can be re-deposited into the colon. Clearing out your elimination pathways is the best way to enhance the benefits of a full cleansing process.

While these treatments can be for anyone looking for a deeper toxin removal treatment, they are ideal for individuals who struggle with heavy chemical dependency. This includes individuals who are prone to environmental allergies, as well as those who have undergone long-term use of prescription medications. It is particularly beneficial for individuals who have used benzodiazepines, as these medications can slow the gut response, increasing the likelihood of constipation and retaining toxins.

At Alternative to Meds, we know how important a happy and healthy gut is for mental and overall health.

Additional Benefits of Sedona Spa Services

Our complimentary spa services provide holistic healing for a variety of ailments impacting the body and mind. All too often, it is easy to become lost in intrusive thoughts, destructive actions, and a fog of anxiety or depression that can impact your mental health. The right spa services can help you press the reset button and truly boost your wellness.

In addition to the above, professional spa services conducted by a staff attuned to mental health and recovery can provide many benefits, including the following:

Stress Reduction

No matter the cause, stress negatively impacts your mental and physical health. In fact, research indicates that prolonged stress can have serious repercussions, including increased anxiety and depression, obesity, greater frequency of illnesses, high blood pressure, and heart disease.1 Spa services can provide a safe space to relax and allow the stressors in your life to take a backseat, especially if you are in the midst of addiction treatment.

Relax the Body

The body also responds to stressors in ways that cause discomfort rather than severe health concerns. For example, many people experience muscle tightness or headaches when feeling exhausted, stressed, or overwhelmed. The issue can be compounded when the resulting body tension and headaches make it difficult to relax. Massage can help ease body tension and even migraines, which in turn makes it easier to loosen the grip of mental stress.2

Relieve Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can make it difficult to complete everyday tasks and can leave a person feeling exhausted both mentally and physically. With chronic pain, it feels as though the body never gets a chance to relax. This can cause increased irritability, depression, and anxiety. Spa services can help to ease inflammation, muscle tension, and acute pain and, when combined with other therapies, can enable you to feel relief.3

Achieve Better Sleep

Sleep provides a way for both the body and mind to relax, and getting enough sleep can help improve your mental and physical health. Waking up from a good night’s sleep can also set a positive tone for the day, allowing you to cope better with stress and anxiety. If you’ve been having trouble sleeping, a spa treatment may help provide the relaxation you need to fall asleep and stay asleep. Spa treatments, such as foot soaks, saunas, or hot rocks, are designed to elevate the temperature of your body. Research shows that heat therapy can both reduce pain and promote sleep.4

Boost Energy

Feeling run down can leave you unable to focus and can cause unwanted tension and irritability. Caffeinated drinks may provide temporary relief but often leave you feeling much worse. Too much caffeine can leave you jittery and anxious, and you’ll likely experience a crash just a few short hours later. Participants report that spa treatments provide a natural way to relax and reset, letting the body naturally provide a boost of energy when it needs it the most.

Spa Services for Mental Wellness and Addiction Recovery

Spa services are beneficial for anyone looking to improve their mental wellness, but the treatments here at Alternative to Meds Center can be especially helpful for those who are undergoing medication withdrawal.

Alcohol, drugs, and prescribed medications introduce a host of chemicals into the body and brain, which can ultimately become toxic. These substances can alter the way the brain creates and responds to important neurotransmitters, which can impact physical and mental health.

Our holistic detox spa treatments help the body rid itself of these toxins, decreasing feelings of stress and anxiety, improving sleep, boosting mood, mitigating chronic pain, and enabling the brain to restore neurotransmitter balance. When the brain’s reward system can recover from toxin overload, cravings, and withdrawals can ease, as well.5

Spa Services Aid in Mental and Physical Recovery

At Alternative to Meds Center, our Sedona spa treatments are designed to complement our full slate of holistic medication withdrawal treatments. Our science-backed approach enables our clients to experience lasting relief from pain, discomfort, addiction, and other impacts of toxicity. In this way, spa treatments at Alternative to Meds Center are more than just a special treat for the mind and body; they are a component of a comprehensive, holistic methodology that promotes total healing.
