If you are brand new to colon hydrotherapy start here →

Our initial consultations begin with walking you through the whole procedure. We explain the filtration system, the mechanics of the session, and answer any questions you may have with regards to what to expect during and after the session.

Once the session begins, we apply a warm castor oil pack on your abdomen, cover you in a warm blanket and heating pad. During the session, we perform reflexology on your feet and gently massage your abdomen to your comfort level.

The gentle inflow of filtered water is always to your comfort level and the release of waste is controlled by your body's own peristaltic movement. The rest of the session is a repetition of introducing warm filtered water into your large intestine and your body releasing diluted waste. We work within your comfort level and aim to make each session as comfortable as possible.

Our colon hydrotherapists are certified through the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapists (I-ACT). Our colonic machines are FDA certified AquaNet closed system units offering both gravitational and gently pressurized colonic sessions. For your safety, we use disposable, one time use speculum kits. Because we specialize in first time clients, the initial appointment is 1 1/2 hours.

All follow-up sessions will be 1 hour.


 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specific form of bodywork in which we increase circulation to the main lymphatic drains of the body which send the excess fluid to the kidneys to be urinated out.

This bodywork is helpful in reducing fluid retention which may contribute to edema, carpal tunnel, fibrocystic breasts and mastitis, ear/nose/ throat congestion, cellulite, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), leg cramps and quickens recovery time after a physical injury. It also improves recovery time from breast augmentation and lipotransfer procedures. Our sessions use massage oils infused with grapefruit, geranium, bay laurel, or any other herb specific for stimulating lymphatic release.

myofascial release

 

Visceral Manipulation/Myofascial Release (VM) addresses pain, dysfunction, and poor posture which may result from structural and functional imbalances. Imbalances can result from surgical scars, injury, illness, or posture and creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around.

By increasing proprioceptive communication through a gentle, steady touch VM is helpful in restoring musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic health.


 

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) uses a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, to release restrictions to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. Very effective if you carry a lot of tension in your face, head, neck, shoulders, back and hips.

CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

✽ Learning Disabilities
✽ Chronic Fatigue
✽ Emotional Difficulties
✽ Stress and Tension-Related Problems
✽ Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue ✽ Disorders
✽ Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)

reiki

 

Reiki is a gentle yet empowering method of energy medicine.  Reiki holds the space for reconnecting with universal vital force to rebalance, rejuvenate and ground personal energy. Helpful in times of stress, sickness, conflict, and/or chaos when your energy levels may become depleted and unbalanced.


raindrop therapy

 

Raindrop Therapy is the perfect treatment if you start feeling under the weather.

We use a series of essential oils chosen specifically for their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial properties These oils are applied along the spine. Heat is added over the oils to improve absorption and penetration of the oils into the back. These oils are also placed on the feet where the pores being some of the largest on the body will increase absorption of the essential oils and their healing qualities. An herbal inhalant is incorporated as well.

Great for boosting your immune health, beneficial with respiratory congestion, bronchitis, and ear/nose/throat congestion.

We recommend you follow this treatment with a 20 minute Epsom salts bath to reactivate the oils when you get home.


oriental cupping

 

After applying a carrier oil we glide massage cups over the body to identify areas of muscle tension.

The massage cups create a suction action which acts to draw stagnant fluid or lactic acid out of the muscle tissue and into the lymphatic system to be flushed out of the body. In areas of greater muscle tension we “park” a cup for greater release to chronic muscle tightness and pain.


 

A Far Infrared Sauna transforms light energy into heat energy which helps the body get rid of toxins and metabolic waste through sweating.

Recent research suggests that spending 15 minutes in a Far Infrared Sauna is as good or better than a 45 minute cardiovascular workout, in terms of burning calories.

Our far infrared sauna sessions last 30 minutes.

ionic foot/hand bath treatment

 

The pores of our hands and feet are the largest on our body which makes them ideal for assisting in our detoxification efforts. We use saline water to increase the conductivity of the ionic charger which sends negatively charged ions into the pores of our hands and feet. These ions bind to heavy metals, yeast (Candida albacins), joint inflammation, parasites, lymphatic congestion, and environmental pollutants drawing them out of the body and into the saline water.

The water will change color based on what organ or system of the body is detoxifying at that time. This treatment is helpful in reducing all states of inflammation as well as assisting all detoxification efforts.


 Using gravity to elongate and decompress the spine by laying at an angle where your head is lower than your feet. Inversions relieve back pressure and pain, reduce muscle spasms in neck and shoulders, helpful with fluid retention and alleviates headaches. 


iridology analysis

 

Iridology Analysis consists of analyzing a photo of your eye and charting the reflected health of the various organs and systems of your body. This process offers you a better understanding of the interconnectedness between organs and overall health.

Iridology helps us understand the root cause of disease processes so we can effectively change our diet and lifestyle to obtain greater physical, mental and emotional balance. Iridology analysis is a part of our naturopathic consultations and online naturopathic health coaching services. Schedule one of those services to experience iridology analysis.
