Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in some places - think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that improve mood, relieve stress, and boost daytime energy.
Recent research has shown that exposure to high-density negative ions in the air significantly improves mood and reduces mood disturbance, depressive symptoms, and anger even for those who are not clinically depressed. In addition, high-density negative ion air generator treatment has been found to improve mood for people with seasonal affective disorder as well as non-seasonal chronic depression. A high-density Negative Ion Generator is available for your use in the Mind Spa, right next to the massage chair.
Using the wrist strap is the most efficient method to maximize the flow of ions; however, the ionizer is on 24 hours a day to benefit all that use the Mind Spa.
