Just have your boyfriend/husband do you in the butt. Always works for me.

Serious Commenters please...

I live in NYC and would like to have a certified technician perform a colonic on me and wanted to know if anyone knows of a reasonably priced place I could go to. If you dont have something beneficial to say towards the comment, dont comment.

colonic lady

there's a lady in washington heights named Dr. Celeste Arias. I dont have a phone number for her, but she's on 181st street right off of broadway, maybe you could find her info in the yellow pages...

Most medi-spas charge about $120-160.
Chakra 17 is a bit below that.
The Natural Alternative Center ( is $75, though it's like $110 for the first one.

Great, I'll check them out. Thank you for your help!

Have you had one done by them? I had one done many years ago when i started weight watchers, and it really helped me to get on the right track ( after seeing all that gunk come outta me, I was more inclined to not want to put junk back in me) but that center has raised their prices so much that I want to go elsewhere.

Celeste Arias Phone #

She's only $40 dollars a session, but speaks primarily Spanish. She speaks enough english for you to have the service done correctly, she even says a prayer in spanish before the procedure. Her telephone number is 212.543.3676.

Yes, I had a series of colonics at The Natural Alternative Center. But since I didn't find colonics helpful for weight loss and ultimately found them to be too uncomfortably invasive (nothing to do with the provider - I tried several different technicians and liked most of them), I don't go anymore.

I found my first colonic to be a little discomforting only because i didnt know i wasnt supposed to eat right before it. it made me a little nauseous, BUT, after a while i felt better and think it was one of the best things I've ever done. when i saw the amount of impacted stuff that was coming out of me and saw how much my stomach went down i was convinced that having the procedure done was a good move. i used to suffer from acne, and since having them done, my skin tone has improved drastically, and i no longer have to fight massive patches of acne. i get a pimple every now and then, but not like before. initially i was having a session every two weeks, and then i stretched it out to once a month which i've been doing for the past 6 months.

It also helped me to maintain my weight loss, and i feel so much more energized than my pre-colonic days. Not to be gross, but my farts arent as sulfuric as they were before, and i dont stink up the bathroom as much when i have a bowel movement. I even find that my menstrual cramps arent as bad as they were.

If you're thinking about it, i would recommend doing it. It's not the same as an enema, it goes further into your system than an enema so more crap (ha!) comes out.

what do you mean goes further than an enema?

Enemas only clean out the, ahem, "pending tray" - the last 6-12" of your colon. A colonic galvanizes all 6 feet of your ascending, transverse, and descending colon.
