Welcome to Humboldt County's First Gravity Colon Hygiene Studio!
Colon Hygiene!?! If you are new to bowel cleansing you are probably saying,
"What the . . . I bathe, shower, etc. daily I'm fine!" You are correct - I don't smell you -
BUT how does your digestive system feel about it? Do you have any of these symptoms:
constipation - diarrhea
gas, bloating, cramping, pain
catch everything that comes along; colds, flu, etc.
These are just a few areas that bowel cleansing touches on.
Bowel cleansing is not a new procedure ~ Enemas and rituals involving the washing of the colon with water have been used since pagan times. The record mentioning colon cleaning is an Egyptian medical papyrus dated as early as 1500 B.C., which shows that the Egyptians employed purgatives, enemas, diuretics, heat, steam and blood-letting to treat diverse diseases.
Colon hygiene made it's way to the USA ~ The popularity of colon cleansing was remarkable in the early 20th century, and colonic irrigation machines were commonly seen. During the 1920's and 1930's, enemas were regularly used as a standard practice among physicians and implemented as a common treatment in most hospitals. Enema therapy declined in the 50's, but colon hygiene became popular again at the end of the 20th century, and has continued to flourish in both popular and alternative culture.
If you have ever had colon hygiene you know the amazement!
Many people say they feel illuminated, awakened, light, and open-minded in new ways they never imagined after receiving colon hygiene. That is because the process is not traumatic, it's actually very relaxing. Why? Because it is a gentle flow of water going in, water and waste moving out! It's referred to as "continuous flow." Woods Gravity system is "No hold and explode" like other devices, this is a more gentle but yet powerful enema. Not only is it wonderful for the digestive track, but also for our emotional state as well. A spiritual thing happens on the table for some people. Not only does colon hygiene help tone the bowel and improve peristalsis it also releases bottled up emotions that we have not yet digested; if you know what I mean!?! and down the drain they go as well. Not bad right!?!; getting rid of two birds with one stone!
Because we are a society that swallows our feelings, and pushes them down inside for no one
to see, hear and feel - what better way to rid our body of these toxic enablers - out with
the waste you go bad ju-ju! Let the freedom reign!!!
Come learn why this experience is amazing and see for yourself the health benefits.
I promise it's nothing like you think and better than you'd ever imagine!

Coffee Enema - Liver Detox, Pain Relief, Blood Cleansing
The bypassing of the digestive process and the infusion of coffee rectally only for the purpose of liver stimulation, toxin release and blood cleansing makes all the difference. Absorption of the coffee into the bloodstream is very low when doing a coffee enema.
Coffee Enema is for Detoxification Not Constipation
It is important not to get coffee enema confused with a plain water enema. Plain water enemas are a helpful therapy for elimination of the bowels and issues with constipation. 24 oz of freshly brewed organic coffee, specially grown for rectal absorption, is prepared and offered in a glass enema bucket and held by hygienist as client inserts and controls flow into colon. Once fluid is inserted, enema tools are taken away and client is left to rest on right side for 30 minutes or until he/she can no longer can hold fluid in; at which time client empties colon in the toilet.
Advanced TUDCA Enema - Support Liver Bile Duct System - Similar to a coffee enema in its detoxing goals without the caffeine. Those that are sensitive to caffeine may want to try TUDCA. Also for those who have appointments after 12 noon I recommend TUDCA so that the caffeine in coffee does not disrupt your sleep that evening. Advanced TUDCA consists of water-soluble bile acids and is also known as tauroursodeoxycholic acid. Animal and lab studies suggest TUDCA promotes bile secretion, which is important to get rid of toxins. And when TUDCA is combined with NAC, Carbon Technology, and melatonin — it also helps support Phase 1 and Phase 2 detox.
Wheatgrass Enema - Energize, Refresh & Blissful - 100% Certified Organic Wheatgrass implants are similar to coffee enemas in detoxifying, but will administer a rich content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytonutrients and metabolic enzymes into your body, helping your colon to heal, and your organs and blood to get the nutrients it needs for great health. PureLife Wheatgrass Enema Powder flows through the portal vein to the liver, detoxifying the liver and blood, chemically neutralize environmental pollutants (including radiation) and heal the colon. Wheatgrass enemas are an option for detoxifying the liver for those who are unable to do coffee enemas.
Chlorophyll Enema - Boost your energy levels- Receiving chlorophyll rectally speeds the absorption as opposed to ingesting orally. Chlorophyll builds better blood by providing your body with the building blocks necessary to produce and maintain healthy levels of red blood cells. Helps to deodorize and detoxify the body when used as an implant. It is similar to wheatgrass but most clients find it much easier to retain the chlorophyll solution for the duration of the implant session.
Boost your energy naturally without sugar, caffeine or other stimulants.
Probiotic Implant - Increase of good bacteria
Replenishes the “good” bacteria in the colon. Helps with Candida overgrowth, boosts immune function and also
helps restore peristaltic movement in the colon. Implanting the gut with billions of live probiotic bacteria containing
beneficial bacteria. Those who are battling an overgrowth of bad bacteria, generally as a result of over use of
antibiotics. It’s delivered after or during a course of antibiotics which often in their quest to kill the bacteria causing
the illness, destroys the guts beneficial bacteria at the same time, leaving the patient vulnerable to other ailments
such as Candida Albicans, conjunctivitis or urinary tract infections. This add-on service is administered via syringe
and held for 30 minutes.
A few disclaimers:
Coffee is not provided on the first session.
Coffee is brilliant for many health conditions. Self-administered is the only way this implant is available.
There is so much literature on coffee enemas, but this one I find to be resourceful as it lists references for the information presented (for those who need data to justify a decision/choice.)
We must first irrigate the colon so that bowel is properly prepared; this is true for all enemas and implants offered at this Detox and Wellness Studio.
The session lasts 30-45 minutes beyond your appointment time. Each individual is different in the time they need, giving yourself an additional 30-45 minutes should be sufficient. The coffee is prepared in advance with the 12 minute technique, strained and prepared that day for your session. But please, feel free to do these at home to optimize your time/money resource!
You may be familiar with ozone because of its role in protecting us from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but as with many integrative and holistic treatment options, this may be the first time you have heard about the medicinal use of ozone. Let us explain what ozone is and what benefits it brings to patients battling a range of health concerns.
To appreciate and understand its medicinal value, we must look closely at the properties of ozone. Ozone is a colorless gas and each molecule is made up of three atoms of oxygen which are quite unstably bound together. Because of ozone’s positive charge, it has an oxidative effect on organic compounds. It has the ability to neutralize negatively charged foreign cells such as bacteria, yeast, viruses and parasites, effectively killing active infections. In medical use, ozone is made from pure oxygen with an ozone generator and the gas is administered in precise therapeutic doses. Ozone therapy has been utilized and extensively studied for many decades altogether. Its affects are proven, consistent and with minimal side effects.
Benefits Of Ozone
Ozone kills viruses, bacteria and fungi, even those resistant to pharmaceutical medications.
Ozone stimulates and balances the immune system.
Ozone increases the anti-oxidant system.
Ozone boosts oxygen utilization and cellular energy production.
Ozone enhances the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation.
Conditions That Ozone Therapy Can Help

An alkaline body is believed to be crucial to a person's health. The main point of foot detoxes is to make the body's
pH more alkaline. Diseases thrive in an acidic environment, hence a foot bath to bring one's body to a more
alkaline state. The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illness are caused by toxins and
pollutants in our bodies. The human body functions best when the ions are balanced at 80% negative and 20%
positive. Diet is the best way to control your balance by eating more higher alkaline foods. However, an Ionic foot
detox, helps to facilitate the alkalization process through ionization, which removes "free radicals" from the body.
Sit and relax while your feet soak in warm water with the ray stimulating its magic of alkalization. You will be given
filtered water for drinking and the option of warm red light therapy during your ionic detox foot bath.
We are proud to offer the benefits of Sunlighten Infrared saunas
1st & Only: Patented Solocarbon 3-in-1® Infrared sauna.
The first and only infrared saunas to offer near, mid and far infrared technology. This smart technology is
proven effective, customizable to individual needs and allows you to track results. These are wellness tools
that are adaptable to your health needs over time.
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Scientific research shows that when delivered at
wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural
photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue.
And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. mPulse saunas got their name because
the LED pulsate for optimal benefits.
Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where
inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process. To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to
maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR. We worked with engineers and scientists to source a high tech material made to withstand the temperature required.
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. We've already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating and have applied that same coating to our polyimide panel. Instead of being sandwiched between layers, the coating is on the exterior of the heating panel. During the testing process, we discovered this application makes it 99% emissive!
Your session will include, a lovely towel covered padded bench with towel covered pillow to encourage a restful sauna session. You will also be given fresh filtered water and an after wash cloth, that has been chilled in filtered water and essential oils. A salt lamp and essential oil diffuser is also going to further assist in your healing session. Those that are scheduled for multiple services, before or after will be given a robe to wear from room to room.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
HBOT works by following a very simple and natural law of physics: more pressure allows more gas to easily dissolve in fluids.
In this case, a hyperbaric chamber provides the greater pressure (onto the body), while the gases in the air, namely oxygen, begin supersaturating our bloodstream. A quick and dramatic rise in oxygen levels inside the body soon follows.
This is the main reason that hyperbaric chambers are deployed in hospitals for life threatening and debilitating conditions which require immediate attention.
When there is restricted blood flow to an area through surgery, illness or injury then the red blood cells block the blood vessel and are unable to transfer oxygen to the cells on the other side of the occlusion. This can lead to swelling, reduced blood flow and starving the area of oxygen.
When this occurs the tissue cells and organs begin to break down and die causing problem wounds and long term tissue damage.
Breathing oxygen under pressure causes the oxygen to diffuse into the blood plasma which can travel past the restriction, diffusing many times further into the tissue.
The tissue, now rich with oxygen encourages the formation of new blood vessels. These blood vessels allow the red blood cells to flow, delivering more oxygen to the affected area. This creates the best environment for the body’s natural healing process and reduces rehabilitation time.
New research studies are continually being performed on mild-HBOT and many of these are showing overwhelmingly positive benefits. This has caused a growing demand and acceptance for the utilization of this therapeutic intervention within the health and wellness industry.
A growing number of professional athletes are using this for performance and injury recovery, more recently in concussion recovery. Media and news outlets are reporting the dramatic improvements in patients that are using this for off-label medical conditions. With the current unprecedented rise being seen in chronic disease and age-related conditions, you can see why many people are now shifting their focus towards mild-HBOT.
More oxygen means more energy for the body
The high levels of oxygen that your body can receive through mild-HBOT can
reciprocally give your body a wealth of extra high energy levels that may not
be apparently obvious to you.
Instead of using this extra energy for going for a long run or a marathon,
your body may use this extra oxygen to:
Keep you strong, active, and energized throughout the day
Give your body that competitive advantage
Maintain your mental sharpness
Help combat aging and its degenerative aspects
Produce more stem cells and replace old tissue while regenerating new tissue
Metabolize and oxidize fats, while lowering blood sugars
Fight off infections and invading organisms
Protect the body though a strong anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effect
Help your body to reduce insomnia and other sleep-related disorders
Help to fix and repair damaged or injured tissue while helping to reduce pain
Regain your youthful zest for life
What is Flowpresso®?
It’s a breakthrough, non-invasive natural therapy that enhances overall health which delivers a 3-in-1 sensory treatment, comprising:
This unique combination of therapies releases toxins and puts the body into a ‘rest and restore’ state, working with our physiological processes to switch off fight or flight mechanisms, and facilitate healing and repair.
Our physiological processes
We have physiological processes that regulate the body’s involuntary reflexes, like heart rate, body temperature, breathing and blood pressure. Regular periods spent in a completely relaxed state — as opposed to a fight or flight state — give our body the time and energy it needs to repair, rejuvenate and reset.
Flowpresso® is a unique system that encourages a rest and repair state – the optimum state for the body’s healing processes.
Ours is the only full-body suit available, covering the legs, abdomen, arms and torso for a systemic therapeutic experience.
There are 22 individual chambers that inflate sequentially – each activating before the previous chamber fully deflates to deliver cyclical and consistent pressure.
Other features include:
• Customisable pressure settings that can be applied to each chamber.
• Two separate pre-programmed modes (sports and relaxation).
• Different cycles that can deliver an individualised experience for each client.
• Velcro fasteners to ensure the suit is comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes.
• Thermotherapy that can be delivered separately to each of the four sections.
• Fibre carbon construction for durability and easy cleaning.
• A proprietary nano vibrational technology for improved energy flow.
A typical session
Patients remain fully clothed throughout their 40-minute session (long sleeves and full-length trousers required).
They are helped into the suit by a technician before the systems’ air pressure and heat cables are connected to a computerised unit and the technician sets initial pressure/heat settings according to the clients needs.
Once the suit starts to inflate, patients experience a squeezing sensation which should feel similar to a hug, with no discomfort. Next, a gentle heat spreads through the suit that is designed to penetrate the body, not just the surface, to avoid overheating.
The technician ensures the settings are comfortable for the client, before providing an optional eye mask and headphones to enhance fully immersive relaxation.
For optimal results
Patients experience the best results by investing in a series of regular sessions, rather than taking a one-off approach. This is because the more often we put the body into a parasympathetic state, the more opportunity it has to reset and repair.
And as we all know, regular relaxation is paramount in maintaining optimal mental health. This is why we recommend at least three sessions, with a minimum of three days in between sessions.
One session per week is ideal and there is no limit on how many sessions people can have.
Flowpresso® delivers compression, thermodynamic heat and deep pressure simultaneously to encourage the body’s inner systems to activate.
Compression technology was first introduced to medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including circulatory conditions. About 25 years ago, compression was adopted for use in sport medicine in an attempt to improve exercise performance and recovery. The cyclic pneumatic compression within Flowpresso® is delivered to different areas of the body, allowing the body to change how it moves. Compression therapy helps encourage flow within the body and assist with releasing toxins from your system.
Thermodynamic energy, or heat therapy can help with a variety of health issues. Researchers discovered that when heat was applied to local areas or the whole body, it had a sleep-promoting effect. Flowpresso® utlises thermotherapy in the four primary garment sections to embrace the body with a gentle, healing, warmth, creating a comforting environment that allows the body to finally rest and relax. The Flowpresso® warmth and temperature range are designed to encourage relaxation and sleep, promote circulation, and support an improvement in health and well-being.
Deep pressure therapy
Deep pressure is generally referred to as a form of tactile sensory input, which is delivered by holding, stroking, hugging, swaddling and squeezing. The technique of Deep Pressure Therapy is often used to calm anxious people – improving their ability to cope. A light touch can be alerting and even agitating to some people, while deep pressure typically has a calming effect on the senses. Flowpresso® applies deep pressure – similar to a hug – to the whole body through each individual chamber, generating a profoundly relaxing effect, allowing the body to calm and release the daily stress of life.
Flowpresso® utlises nano vibrational technology to enhance the overall experience and combination of therapies. It delivers a proprietary vibrational frequency, stimulated by the conductivity of body heat. This technology has shown to increase energy flow and circulation within the body, whilst encouraging repair and restoration.
The benefits of using Flowpresso®
Patients and clinicians have reported the following benefits:
• Increased relaxation
• Improved sleep quality
• Improved energy
• Decreased stress response
• Faster recovery in sport
