With a soft stream of warm filtered water, Upstate Colon Care Center's hydrotherapists extract pernicious impurities and dissolve ossified fecal matter. During the 45-minute procedure, an FDA-approved, pencil-size speculum distributes the filter-like particles of a melted snowman around the viscera to sequester unstirred sediment. Upon bestowing bowels with a sprucing rinse, the liquid is flushed, taking with it potential toxins such as candida, mucus, and any misplaced handcuff keys. Freshly inundated insides lead to many benefits, including weight loss and a diminished risk of autointoxication caused by built-up dross.
Licensed acupuncturist and doctor of Oriental medicine James C. Kapetanakos clears out clogged meridians and reroutes blood flow to ailing areas during acupuncture sessions that bridge broken synapses between the mind and body. With calm, unwavering hands, the doctor inserts hair-thin needles into the skin to target pain at its source and clear away circulatory traffic jams. Having honed his skills in a variety of Eastern medical disciplines, Dr. Kapetanakos employs the same acupuncture techniques on patients that he once used to quell his own chronic pain and fear of balloon-wielding clowns. These techniques include neuromuscular reeducation, passive resistance, and a targeted “spot-shotting” method designed to address the root causes of ailments such as neck pain, headaches, and sports-related injuries.
