Raleigh, NC, United States, 2006/01/30 - Raleigh Day Spa and medical spa newsletter includes a controversial column. Blue Water Spa was voted one of the top four spas in America in 2005 by American Spa Magazine.
Caveat emptor is a regular feature in the newsletter. This column provides information, including sometimes less than positive reviews on popular medical spa treatments.
In Blue Water Spa's latest newsletter, a detoxifying ionic foot bath treatment is evaluated after a demonstration in the spa.
These treatments claim to release toxins through one's feet while immersed in water. According to the representative who visited Blue Water Spa, this device claims to help from everything from arthritis to cancer.
Various colors in the water following a treatment may indicate what kind of detoxification has taken place. After a demonstration in her spa, Law learned that the water turned various colors and bubbled up whether or not feet were immersed in the water.
Law is a believer in homeopathy and is open-minded about some alternative therapies. One article in the same newsletter has to do with homeopathy. Law says, "Neither of my children have ever eaten a jar of commercial baby food. I have prepared all their food myself, primarily from organic foods. I have given them both homeopathic remedies from the time they were infants for things like teething pain, rashes, fevers, etc."
The woman providing the demonstration mentioned several times the positive effects this treatment can have on children with autism. Kile was sickened by the thought of practitioners purchasing any device without adequate medical evidence to back its' claims and promoting it to parents who are desperately looking for anything available that might help a child with a health concern.
Blue Water Spa takes very seriously the responsibility of evaluating products and devices for safety and efficacy. It is very challenging for even the most savvy and educated consumer to determine the difference between a peer reviewed medical journal and a magazine with no medical advisory board.
