AWARD WINNING WELLNESS CENTER

THE NILE WELLNESS CENTER offers hygienic & comfortable colon hydrotherapy, using disposable equipment & multi-filtered, purified water. Their state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared, self-sanitizing systems allow them to regulate temperature & pressure while maintaining maximum safety. Founder & Certified Colon Hydrotherapist Deborah Imani, Dr. Michael Imani & their staff skillfully guide you through a relaxed experience.

The Nile Wellness Center 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 disposable. Your general well-being is enhanced as the colon muscles are toned and peristalsis is stimulated. Deborah & Michael believe that colon hydrotherapy -- when supported by a diet of primarily non-mucous-producing foods, water, appropriate exercise & stress management -- accelerates the healing potential of your body. They also provide weight loss programs, raw food classes, autogenic therapy & colon hydrotherapy certification classes.
