Colon hydrotherapy leaves people feeling clean and light, unlike colon psychotherapy, which leaves people feeling confused about where to sit. Enjoy a relaxing colon cleanse with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one colon hydrotherapy session at Carole Franck Beaute Clinique & Spa in Glendale (a $90 value). Groupon customers will also receive 30% off their next visit.
At Carole Franck Beaute Clinique & Spa, trained technicians conduct colon hydrotherapy treatments using the Angel of Water system, which sends currents of warm filtered water up the colon to flush out stockpiles of waste and toxins. Clients can hop onto Angel of Water's reclined seat—featuring a padded backrest that cushions torsos and a curved bolster that supports legs—put a rectal nozzle in its place, and relax during the session, which lasts about 45 minutes. As the hydrotherapy system choreographs a series of fills and releases, the patron's intestinal foyer is repeatedly flooded, stimulating the body's natural peristalsis and exporting compacted waste. The machine's super-clean water, which maintains an average temperature of 100 degrees, first sifts through a carbon filter, then a sediment filter that packs a UV blast to detonate any contaminants.
A viewing mirror shows clients what they are expelling as Angel of Water does its work, while the equipment's internal exhaust fan keeps the area more ventilated than a blow-dryer factory. After cutting ties with toxins, visitors can rinse themselves off and head out the door, feeling freshly irrigated and ready for a new day.
Gohar Carole Franck Spa
Internationally trained beauty expert Gohar Thomas, owner of Gohar Carole Franck Spa, boasts 28 years of industry experience including a two-decade stint as head aesthetician at Harrods of London. From within a brightly colored cottage, Gohar integrates European spa products she’s accrued through years of international training into an array of cosmetic services performed amid fresh flowers and streams of natural light. She supervises licensed aestheticians as they perform facials with Carole Franck products, etch color onto lips and around eyes with permanent makeup, and target cellulite with aesthetic technology. The bodily cosseting continues in a private massage room, which shelters a massage table and a bathtub surrounded by candles that allows clients to relax before or after their treatment with a soak attuned to the temperature of a bubbling spring or a pot of freshly boiled hot-dog water.
