When I was visiting Balanced Body last Summer for the Balanced Body Barre photo shoot, we took a moment to stop by the factory and lounge on an original 1950's "Chaise Lounge" made by Joseph Pilates himself...pretty cool ya!

Chlorinated Water

Is your water safe to drink & shower in? 

"Any swimmer can tell you; Chlorine leaves your skin feeling dry and itchy, makes your hair dry, brittle, and prone to dandruff , destroys the elastic in your swimsuit and bleaches it out. It can cause a rash, or make one worse, irritate your skin, and leave your eyes feeling sore and itchy. If you do not swim very often you are free from the destructive nature of chlorine, right? Wrong. The fact is that here in the USA our municipal water systems are required to add chlorine to our water, and, depending on what is in the water that they are trying to destroy, levels of chlorine can be quite high. Chlorine is a dangerous enemy that dries and damages skin and hair and, when combined with VOCs and DBPs, causes permanent respiratory problems as well. We don't really know what chemicals are in the water we use every day, and these chemicals can attack swiftly and silently. The cure for potential problems lies in pure, filtered water. " -How Using Chlorine to Treat Your Hot Tub Affects You?



DO NOT mix household bleach with acid-containing or ammonia-containing household chemicals (drain cleaners, ammonia, cleansers). Dangerous amounts of chlorine or other toxic gases can be released.

Long-term (chronic) effects:
• Long-term exposure to low levels of chlorine gas is potentially linked to diseases of the lung (bronchitis, shortness of breath, possible permanent damage) and tooth corrosion. 
• No cancer or reproductive effects have been reported from chronic exposure to chlorine.

-Michigan Department of Public Health Chlorine Fact Sheet

"No conclusion on the carcinogenicity of chlorine can be made based on the limited 
information available from human and animal studies." -EPA
"Chlorine is a primary irritant to the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and throat 
and to the linings of the entire respira-tory tract (Stokinger 1982). The extent of 
acute injury to humans depends on the concentration and  duration of exposure as well 
as the water content of the tissue involved and the presence of underlying 
cardiopulmonary disease (HSDB 1994). The estimated clinical effects of varying 
concentrations of chlorine are as follows: 
mild mucous membrane irritation at 1-3 ppm; moderate irritation of the upper 
respiratory tract at  5-15 ppm; immediate chest pain, vomiting, dyspnea, and cough at  
30 ppm; toxic pneumonitis and pulmonary edema at 40-60 ppm; death at 430 ppm for 
30 minutes or 1000 ppm for a few minutes (HSDB 1994).  Seventy-six individuals, exposed during a football game when 
approximately 1100 pounds of chlorine gas were released from a plant, suffered no 
serious or prolonged incapacitation due to the release (HSDB 1994). If one survives 
           acute exposure to chlorine, recovery is usually complete and rapid 
(U.S.EPA 1989)." -Environmental Protection Agency / CHEMICAL SUMMARY FOR CHLORINE
