In theory, the best way to cleanse the body is to hire a microscopic SWAT team to rappel in and wipe out microbes with antibody-guns, but science has yet to invent a small enough helicopter. Skirt around limits in nanotechnology with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a colon hydrotherapy session at The Added Touch Colonics & Aroma Therapy in Tempe (a $65 value).
Employing hydrotherapy to purify the colon and aromatherapy to comfort the mind and body, The Added Touch's holistic methods cleanse patients of both intestinal toxins and mental anxiety. After conducting a quick, preliminary rectal exam, a certified therapist gently pipes temperature-controlled purified water into the lower bowel and colon, flushing out waste and toxins while erasing graffiti from the colonic walls. Throughout the treatment, which lasts approximately 30–45 minutes, a far infrared sauna mat increases the core body temperature with gentle heat, promoting a full-body release of toxins and tension as the aromas from essential oils and flowers assist in total relaxation.
As part of The Added Touch's holistic approach, the treatment also includes an educational session on colon hydrotherapy's measures toward preventing digestive-tract issues and diseases, from chronic constipation and colitis to the overpopulation of chewing gum civilizations.
Essential Health's licensed techs help heal bodies from the soul outward with gentle colon hydrotherapies and customized massages. Utilizing only sterile and disposable equipment, The Added Touch's colonics provide a safe and effective means of eradicating built-up bowel waste, from toxins and fecal matter to loitering impaction, as clients recline across a far-infrared treatment mat and fill olfactory cavities with the scent of aromatherapy oils. Customized massages melt away stress and body aches while an on-staff, licensed reflexologist targets specific points of pain by rubbing the heels and toes to the tune of "Chopsticks." Appointments can be scheduled Tuesday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with availability for after-hours sessions.
