Appointments must be made in advance – walk-ins are not possible.  When you leave a message on my voice mail, please state your name and phone number twice.  So often, a message can be a little garbled or the phone reception is not the best and I don’t hear every digit of the phone number and I am unable to return the call.  Generally, appointment times are as follows: 

Monday – Friday:   The earliest appointment of the day is at 8:30 a.m. and the last appointment of the day begins at 3:30 p.m. 

Saturdays:   I will generally schedule only morning appointments, with the first appointment beginning at 9:30 am. 

The fee per session is $90.  Due to having received some bad checks, I have had to go to a CASH ONLY policy.

Gift certificates are also available.  They make nice presents for the people in your life who either already receive colonics or for the people in your life who have wanted to try colonics but haven’t yet. 

The amount of time allotted for an appointment is about an hour.  You will need to arrive 5 minutes early to ensure that you have found the office in plenty of time before your appointment begins and are on the table ready for your session to begin by your appointment time.  On my home page, you will find a heading for “Health Questionnaire”.  It would be helpful and save your time in the office if you could please print it and fill it out before coming in for your first appointment.  If you are unable to do so, I will have a copy in the office for you to fill out but, in that case, you will need to arrive 10 minutes early so that you may complete the health questionnaire.  The amount of time allotted for subsequent appointments is also about an hour. 

Please remember that your appointment time has been reserved for you.  If you are late, the amount of time that you are late will be taken from your session time, so please be sure to be on time for your appointment.

Regarding fragrances: Please refrain from wearing fragrances. There may be others in the waiting room who are highly sensitive or allergic to fragrances, and some fragrances are so strong that they linger even after the wearer of the fragrance has left.

Regarding inclement winter weather:  If winter precipitation is forecasted, I may decide to cancel appointments for that day.  I would rather err on the side of caution.  I don’t want either of us to have a traffic accident or slip and fall because we were out in bad weather.  If you have an appointment scheduled when that type of precipitation is forecasted, I will call you to let you know if I do decide to close the office in the event of inclement weather.

Regarding children:  Please do not bring children to the appointment.  I have found it to be very distracting to the client and to me.  And if the next client arrives before your session has ended, they may find it distracting as well. The session will be much more relaxing for everyone if you leave your children with a babysitter. 

Regarding cell phones:  Please turn your cell phone off at the start of the session.  Making and receiving phone calls and text messages is very distracting to the client and to me.  The session will be much more relaxing for us if you leave your cell phone turned off.

Regarding any special preparation before a session, it is recommended that you not eat anything heavy for about an hour and a half before your appointment so that your body can concentrate on elimination rather than digestion.  As for clothing that you should wear, you may choose to wear comfortable clothing but it is not necessary.

A note for females:  It is perfectly all right to have a colonic during your menstrual cycle unless you are experiencing cramps.  I would rather that you not have a colonic if you are not feeling well (and you would probably prefer that too!).  Otherwise, there is no problem with having a colonic at this time – the menstrual blood flow temporarily stops while you are getting a colonic.

A note for colonoscopy (which is performed by a physician) preparation clients:  It has been my experience that colonoscopy preparation clients greatly prefer to have their colons cleaned using colon hydrotherapy rather than the standard preparation of drinking a harsh laxative and spending the evening in the bathroom.  Please consult with your gastroenterologist if you are interested in using colon hydrotherapy instead of the standard preparation.  Since laxatives can be so dehydrating to the body, a benefit of doing this instead of the standard prep is that we are putting some hydration in the body, and that can help you not to feel so “washed out” and drained the way you might otherwise feel with the typical laxative preparation.  You will be able to leave my office and go straight to your colonoscopy appointment. 

As for how clients feel after an appointment, I am often told things such as: “I feel less tight and less bloated in my abdomen”, or “I feel lighter and less weighed down”, or “I feel like I have so much energy”, or “I feel so much healthier that I want to go exercise and only put ‘good’ food in my body”, or “I feel like I lost 10 pounds”, or “My stomach feels a lot more relaxed now”.  It is important to note that, for the next few hours after an appointment, it is possible to feel a need to have another bowel movement or two.  Therefore, I do not recommend having a colonic for several hours before an important event or before boarding a plane or before outdoor activities - that type of thing. 

Regarding how often you should get a colonic, it is recommended that, if at all possible, you have 3 colonics within a two-week period when you first begin having colonics.  The reason for that is so that the fecal matter can be hydrated and soaked as much as possible within a short amount of time to loosen it up and help as much as possible to be eliminated.  Remember, it took that poop some time to accumulate – it will take some time to help get it out!  After the initial series of 3, I usually suggest to clients that they wait to schedule future appointments until their bodies start to feel like they did before they received colonics (bloated, sluggish, or constipated – that type of feeling). 

If you need to cancel an appointment, kindly provide at least 24 hours notice.  I value my clients’ time and I ask that you value mine as well.  Someone else might like to have the appointment that you need to cancel and they need enough advance notice to prepare. 

PLEASE NOTE:  If you fail to provide 24 hours notice before canceling an appointment, you will need to pay for that missed appointment before being able to schedule another one.
