The word plumbing comes from the discredited practice of tightening up internal pipes by eating six pounds of dried plums in one sitting. Discover a fruit-free cleanse with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get a session of colon hydrotherapy plus a consultation at Lavage Wellness Center in Lakewood (a $72 value).
At Lavage Wellness Center, certified colon hydrotherapists Lucinda Simpson and Laura Yetzer gently flush out customers' overtaxed innards. During each session, purified water snakes its way through the large intestine, removing built-up waste such as accidentally swallowed chewing gum or intentionally swallowed copies of Reader's Digest. After explaining the procedure, Lucinda massages pressure points along the digestive tract, loosening matter in the colon which is then swept out and away by 5 gallons of H2O. Hydrotherapy frees bodies from the grip of toxic pollution that may cause headaches, back pain, fatigue, constipation, and body odor. Patients may also experience positive side effects such as a strengthened immune system, increased energy, and the ability to distinguish a semicolon from a diagram of the lower intestine.
Lavage Wellness Center
With more than three decades of experience under her belt, Lucinda Simpson established Lavage Wellness Center, where gentle streams of water flush out detritus and toxins to bolster wellness. The two get to know their clients during consultations that establish the parameters of each personalized treatment, which not only supports digestive function but activates reflex points that inspire feelings of positivity and well-being. They partner their signature service with other forms of cleansing, including infrared-sauna sessions and detoxifying foot baths, which use ionic charges to pull toxins from the body and strengthen intracellular telepathy.
