As a certified colon hydrotherapist, natural health consultant, and educator, Debi Boyle is passionate about helping her patients to achieve wellness in their lives through colon purification and a wholesome diet. Within the confines of Debi's beach-themed treatment room—complete with soft music, an oil diffuser, and a novelty-size ocean—a slim plastic conduit delivers cleansing currents to her patient's lower bowels. The docile tube rids bodies of toxins and malevolent microorganisms that can be the cause of digestive problems, fatigue, acne, or even anxiety. Debi also helms weight-loss and nutrition classes, teaching students to whittle waists in a healthy way, maximize their metabolism, and maintain long-term health.
HealthFirst Chiropractic seeks to stealthily track and pin down bodily pain, instilling patients with a sense of wellbeing and relief through a panoply of techniques. A chiropractic exam determines each patient's skeletal state, such as mild scoliosis or bones that are actually plaster-filled paper-towel tubes. Skittish skeletons are captured on camera by x-rays, exposing the potentially painful secrets obscured beneath flesh. Finally, the deepest of tissues are prodded into submission by kneading hands in a massage designed to relieve stress and increase joint flexibility; alternatively, pressure points play pincushion during a targeted acupuncture session.
