Colon Hydrotherapist Kim Russo, Licensed Colon Therapist, LMT, MIfHI at  COLON  HYDROTHERAPY  offers hygienic & comfortable colon hydrotherapy using a gravity- fed closed system and filtered, purified water. Kim skillfully guides her clients through a  relaxing and cleansing experience.

Kim believes that colon hydrotherapy may be valuable in minimizing the effects of dietary  & environmental stresses and toxins that bombard us on a regular basis and can lead to  immune system imbalances. Colon hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of warm,  filtered water into and out of the rectum & large intestine using no chemicals or drugs. To  ensure safety & sanitary conditions, all tubes & speculum are sterilized. General well-being  is enhanced as the colon muscles are toned and peristalsis is stimulated. Kim believes  that colon hydrotherapy, when supported by a diet of primarily non-mucous-producing  foods, water, appropriate exercise & stress management, accelerates the healing potential  of the body. She works on people of all different ages with a variety of health goals.
