What is Red Light Therapy?
Red and Near Infrared Light are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is part of the spectrum of light emitted by the sun which includes Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. These wavelengths of light are “bioactive” in humans, meaning that they affect the function of our cells. Alternative names to this type of therapy include Photobiomodulation and LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy). The frequency of Red Light is 635 nm while Near Infrared Light is at 850 nm.
How does the Slim Sculpt System aid in the reduction of pain?
Red Light works by increasing natural ATP production in joint cells which assists with the reduction of inflammation and normalizes the joints biology and function. Click Here to Read our article “Photobiomodulation Therapy And It’s Uses to Combat Pain.”
What does the Slim Sculpt treatment feel like?
Whether you offer your clients a treatment in our Slim Sculpt Pro or Ultimate system, comfort is paramount. While our systems boast thousands of LED diodes, they are offered at low power which means that our system is not only safe but provides a session that is warm to the touch.
What is the difference between a laser and an LED Red Light Device?
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation and uses coherent light (a very small light source) and produces a monochromatic color. LEDs or Light Emitting Diodes on the other hand use incoherent light, a broader light source, dispersing light waves. Laser systems must be administered by a physician or medical technician. This makes operating them very expensive. An LED Red Light device can be operated by a non-medical technician as there is no risk of injury to the tissue. Both LED and Laser 635nM light deliver the same effects to the tissue and has been proven by Dr.Tiina Karu, of the Academician of Russian Academy of Laser Science. Dr. Karu was able to show both types of light became diffused upon entering the dermis. The light was diffused to the point where there was no negligible difference between the two types of light when it reached the subcutaneous fat cells (fat cells below the surface of the skin)
Who may use the Slim Sculpt?
The Slim Sculpt system has been used on all skin types and colors. Pregnant mothers are not recommended to use the system while pregnant. If there is any question have them consult their physician.
Can all areas of the body be treated?
No, do not place diodes over the eyes, however, all other areas of the body can be treated. We offer specialty size pads for treating specific areas of the body.
How Does the Revive Cleanse work?
The Revive Cleanse Ionic Detox Foot Bath involves filling a foot bath tub with clean water and adding sea salt which is high in mineral content. An array or water module is connected to the Revive Cleanse control box is placed in the water. This results in positive and negatively charged ions being circulated through the body of the Detox Foot bath Therapy subject. These ions circulate primarily via the lymphatic and circulatory systems, which bathe cells throughout the body, acting like magnets to attract the oppositely charged ions of toxins, heavy metals and cellular waste. This process is painless and takes approximately 30 minutes. While some of the toxins are excreted through the approximately 2000 pores in the feet during the Detox Therapy Session, most importantly the Detox Therapy Session will result in a boost in the efficiency of the body’s natural excretory and toxin elimination functions for 24 to 48 hours after the session. The liver and kidney are marvelous natural filtration systems and work with the body’s natural excretory functions during the period following the Detox Therapy Session to help the body eliminate collected toxins and heavy metals. You are likely to notice changes in the color of the urine and bowels of the individual treated following the Detox Session evidencing the resulting increased efficiency of the body’s natural filtration and elimination functions.
If you have never experienced a Detox Footbath, you will be amazed by the change in the color of the water during the Detox Therapy Session. What started out as clean water will change color and you will observe the water becoming very discolored indeed. This is in part due to ionization and the resulting oxidation of the minerals in the water. However this is only part of the story. You will also notice mucus, foam and flecks in the water and it may turn very dark indeed during your first several sessions. After a number of sessions or during a period of particular illness you may notice the color of the water changing indicating a change in the detoxifying of different parts of the body or varying states of toxicity in your body.
What is most important to understand about how a Detox Footbath Therapy Session works is that an adult human body is between 50 and 65 percent water. The ionization and discoloration process you see going on in the footbath is similar to the process on the water content within your body. The positively and negatively charged ions introduced in the footbath are passing throughout your body and having a similar collection and cleansing effect through the body’s natural filtration and elimination functions during the period following the Detox Therapy Session. The 24 to 48 hour boost in efficiency of these functions resulting from the Detox Therapy Session provides most of the therapeutic benefit as well as toxin, heavy metal and cellular waste elimination. For this reason, Detox Therapy Sessions are not suggested more frequently than once every two or three days to allow for the post-Therapy Session detoxification process to work through to completion and not overload the body’s natural filtration and elimination processes.
Is hydration essential to the detoxification process?
It is important you understand that Revive Cleanse detoxification process is about water and energy. If your body is not properly hydrated then you don't have the proper balance of water in your body. When you drink water and it gets absorbed into your body the water becomes like an electrolyte solution. The major part of your blood, the river of life that flows through you, is salty water. Therefore, correct hydration helps to ensure that the energy is going to flow to all parts of your body properly.
How many people can use the Revive Cleanse at a time?
The Revive Cleanse Ionic Detoxification Foot Bath can be used with one person at a time. The active method is used for individual purposes only. You only treat one person at a time and you never use the already treated water twice.

Does it matter what material my bath or foot-bathing container is made out of?
Plastic is perfectly okay.
Why does the watercolor change?
The color change in the water can be attributed to a multitude of variances including, the water quality, oils of your skin, lotions you may be we you are using and your health status.
Can I use the Revive Cleanse unit daily?
We recommend that you detox yourself every 48 to 72 hours, which will allow your body a chance to recover from your session. Using the system too much can make you fatigued and is not beneficial for your body to use more than recommended.
Can I use the BBS unit in a spa bath?
Certainly not as your spa unit probably contains chlorinated water.
Can women who are pregnant, those with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy use the system?
No, the BBS detox footbath systems are not recommended for pregnant woman, anyone with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy.
Why is it beneficial to use a foot massager before and after your Detox session?
A foot massager helps to further stimulate the lymphatic system and circulation. Further, the massage helps to relax the user so that they may better absorb the energy of the Detox session.
Why use a mineral supplement after your Detox session?
Currently, there is not a system on the market that can distinguish between "good" and "bad" minerals when the body is experiencing detoxification. Therefore, it is only natural for users to lose “good” minerals during a session. By including advanced supplementation into one’s wellness protocol, they will enhance the benefits of the detox session. We recommend the EssenceSea™ Volixer™ Water Concentrate which contain trace minerals.
Can I use the BBS Unit while taking prescription drugs?
As a rule of thumb, it is fine for people that use daily prescription drugs to use the BBS detox footbaths as long as they have consulted with their health professionals prior to use. For people on life-sustaining medications, we strongly recommend that you always consult with your health professional, possibly finish your course of medication, and then try the BBS systems.

For those who might feel tired, it is recommended to use the BBS unit in the evening before rest. Conversely, if you feel full of energy after a footbath, it is best to begin sessions in the morning.
Why is it a good idea to disinfect the Sea-Onic™ array after each bath?
The Sea-Onic™ array has been designed purposely to make sure that only the metal comes in contact with the bath water during the footbath. Further, the metal surfaces that come in contact with the water during the footbath have a substantial current going through the surface. This contributes to keeping the surface clean and free of the various toxins that are eliminated through the skin during the footbath.
However, it is an additional safety precaution to dip the Sea-Onic™ array into a 91% alcohol jar for several minutes after each bath. This will ensure that the array is thoroughly dried, reducing the possibility of unsightly surface rust and that no biological toxins remain on the array before it is stored in preparation for the next bath.
Can you use the BBS system within a bathtub for a full-body detox session? Jacuzzi/Spa?
The only BBS system recommended for a full bathtub setting are the Revive Cleanse Pro Plus, Pro, and Basic. As for use within Jacuzzis or spas, neither of these applications is suitable under any circumstances. Further, a spa unit probably contains chlorinated water.
What kind of water should be used in the footbath?
Water from a well is the best solution. However, tap water, bottled spring water, or filtered water will work fine. Please keep in mind that you don't want to use distilled, softened, or reverse-osmosis water sources since the mineral content has been removed from this type of water. This lack of mineral greatly reduces the power of the Revive Cleanse System.
