Q&A with the Owner

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
Summer Edwards of Reno, NV said that she "had twin boys in 2008 and could never get rid of the baby weight. I completed the cleanse, lost 13 pounds, and still continue to lose weight. It was much easier than I thought. The foods that I used to love no longer appeal to me.... It has also been an incredible emotional, mental, spiritual, physical journey for me. I am at the best place of my life in all of those aspects. I have never felt better!”

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
This is an opportunity to step off the treadmill of yo-yo dieting and self-sabotage behavior. The average cleanser reports weight loss of 10 lbs or more. The program and built-in support system supplies cleansers with proper nutrition education and helps instill healthy habits and behaviors for long term benefits and maximum results.

Even before Craig Swogger ventured into the holistic world as a professional, he practiced what he preached; he was and is an avid meditation participant and instructor. Now as an alternative-care practitioner—who also holds a master's degree in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine—Craig utilizes his knowledge in the services he provides, including creating his own ointments from Chinese herbs. His dedication to his craft is also apparent to his clients as he rids them of aches, nausea, and anxiety with cupping, tai chi, moxibustion, and the ancient art form of acupuncture.
