Melanee Higgins decided to make a career out of colon hydrotherapy after seeing firsthand the benefits it yielded in her own life. Now an I-ACT-certified practitioner at Colorado's Best Colonics, she helps her patients purge harmful toxins from their bodies—in turn improving nutrient absorption, recalibrating internal pH levels, and boosting energy stores. She preaches proper hydration, advising patients to drink a gallon of water or a lake through a straw each day, and recommends increasing fiber intake before treatments for optimal results. Further cleansing can be found in her detoxifying body wraps and ionic foot baths, which eliminate poisons from the body and improve organ health.
A former staff sergeant in the Air Force. An airplane mechanic who repaired oxygen masks. A master massage therapist, registered medical assistant, and certified laser technician. Tina Long is all of these things and more. As the owner of Parker Med Spa, she combines her unique background with innovative technology to offer clients the latest anti-aging and beauty solutions.
Long helps her clients to deal with the frustration of weight loss with body-contouring treatments such as the Zerona and Yolo laser systems, having herself lost pounds, inches, and degrees of insulation with the fat-emulsifying devices. The historical ambiance, array of facial and body treatments, and advanced technology earned her spa recognition on ABC 7 and CityVoter's 2011 A-List; it was named a finalist in the Best Day Spa category and nominated in the Best Medical Spa category.

The doctors at Hatch Chiropractic & Wellness's main area of concern is the spinal cord, but they also offer a therapeutic smorgasbord of other drug-free techniques.

In lieu of harsh medications, the doctors rely on herbal remedies to help alleviate a range of medical issues, from digestion to headaches.
