At Luv Your Colon Hydrotherapy, cleanliness and privacy are paramount. Certified therapists perform colon-hydrotherapy sessions in a private room, taking every effort to preserve patient dignity.

They also perform additional services, such as surgery preparation for a colonoscopy, diet plans with combined hydrotherapy, and reflexology.
Walking from one treatment room to another inside Tikkun Holistic Spa feels like what walking through a rainbow might be like. The deep blue-greens of the jade room give way to the pink bricks of the Himalayan salt room, and arctic-imitating landscape in the ice room shines a pale blue. Besides exuding a calming atmosphere, Tikkun Holistic Spa has one main goal: to help heal the entire world, one stressed-out person at a time. To that end, reiki master and owner Niki Han Schwarz developed her signature Korean body treatments for clients. Among those treatments is the body scrub and hot oil massage, in which scrubbing mitts exfoliate and hydrate the entire body. The spa also offers a variety of other relaxing treatments that include massage, body wraps, and facials.
