The I-ACT certified technicians at Alternative Wellness Day Spa steer clients toward stronger health with holistic treatments including infrared body wraps, massages, and colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Shawna, the colon hydrotherapist, entered the field over a decade ago after forays with the treatment produced a significant uptick in her own health. She now works alongside a massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of tension-battling experience to improve the health and well-being of their clients.
Wine-tinted curtains separate the comfortable lounge area from the private colon-hydrotherapy treatment rooms, where guests recline in specialized seats designed to ensure comfort and restore healthy gastrointestinal function.
