Without regular detoxifying, the body can become bogged down with internal litter and last year's old phonebooks. Purify your piping with today's Groupon: for $42, you get one 45-minute colonic treatment at Inner Ecology in Santa Monica (an $85 value).
Owner Serena Vit and the board-certified colon hydrotherapists at Inner Ecology help clients cleanse their inner ductwork with gentle colonic sessions. To begin this discreet 45-minute treatment, patients settle in to a comfortable reclining pose upon Libbe's open-system table, then self-insert a sterile, disposable tube—not much bigger than a daffodil stem—into the rectum. Warm, carbon-filtered water fills the lower bowels, flushing out impacted and stale waste matter, while one of the therapists massages the abdomen and reflexology points to coax stubborn debris bits from their intestinal speakeasies. Unlike medicinal laxatives, which dehydrate and befuddle the digestive tract, colonics hydrate thirsty bodies and improve peristalsis. Many people feel lighter, more alert, and more energetic after their treatment, but colonics are not recommended for those with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or holographic lower halves.
At Inner Ecology, a series of 35- to 45-minute treatments is all it takes to potentially address a range of issues, including low energy, constipation, and skin impurities. Colon treatments send warm, filtered water into the colon to flush toxins from the lower digestive tract and encourage health.
