Interesting Facts

Sole bath water will remain at a constant temperature if a true, 1% solution is used. The biophysical composition of the salt solution is so strong, that it actually causes the molecules to move in a constant rhythm. When this happens, organ functions begin to resonate with the rhythm – activating the body’s self-healing powers.

The temperature and ionic makeup of the brine bath is comparable to that of the amniotic fluid in the prenatal state… providing warmth, comfort and safety. This is often the same reason why we’re so drawn to the ocean – the negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase serotonin, alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost energy.

Salt is a disinfectant; several people can actually share the same Sole baths.
