Many holistic practitioners believe that health begins with a well-cared for colon. The precise functioning of the body’s organs of detoxification explains why: every 4 minutes the blood cycles through the portal vein from the colon to the liver and back again. If the colon is toxic, through the connecting pathway of the portal vein, the liver becomes overloaded. The liver, then, can’t do its main function, which is to detoxify the whole body. The colon and liver are the 1-2 detoxification punch for the body.
We, at La Casa, are proud of our very experienced and knowledgeable colon therapists. They are the life-blood of all our detoxification programs. They have each been with us for the 18 years that we have operated in New York City.
Classic Colonic (our best intro colonic)60 minutes: $90
This therapy cleans the colon using a gentle water irrigation technique. Water is filtrated and passed through UV light to assure its purity. Colon therapy offers many health benefits including detoxification, cleansing of the bloodstream and the stimulation of internal organs. While you are relaxing, letting us gently stimulate your body to release its toxic materials, we facilitate the process through the use of reflexology and abdominal massage.
We offer discounts for purchasing a series of Classic Colonics after your first treatment:
series of 4: $320 (savings of $40)
series of 6: $471 (savings of $69)
series of 8: $619 (savings of $101)
series of 10: $765 (savings of $135)
Intensive Colonic (our most systemically effective colonic)60 minutes: $150
This is a colonic like none other, and La Casa is the only place in the entire world you can have it. We augment the colon cleansing with Pulsed Magnetic Therapy. This is a painless enhancement of the cleansing process. In fact, it will feel quite wonderful. As you are expelling your discharge, we will send gentle pulsed magnetic energy into your abdomen from our Pulsed Magnetic Generator, an FDA medically approved device. It’s a 1-2 punch: you get the benefits of the colonic with all the added benefits of the therapeutic effect from the PMT (which are systemic).
Luminescent Colonic (our most reparative colonic)60 minutes: $150
pH Colonic (our most balancing colonic)60 minutes: $150
Our goal then, in our pH Colonic, is to assist you in creating the proper alkaline balance within your body. An added benefit to the pH Colonic as your first step toward over-all alkalization is possible weight loss, as over-acidity keeps weight on. The pH Colonic includes an implant of highly alkalizing mineral salts, as well as dietary suggestions for creating the proper balance of alkaline and acid foods.
Purification Colonic (our most immune enhancing colonic)60 minutes: $150
This colonic is performed with essential oils as well as a castor oil pack placed with a hot compress on the abdomen. Don’t underestimate the power of the little castor bean, from which castor oil is extracted. Castor oil is an anti-toxin that impacts on the lymphatic system and enhances immunological function. The oil specifically strengthens the Peyer’s Patches, which are tiny patches of lymphatic tissue in the mucosal surface of the small intestine, and are an important element of the body’s immune system. Castor oil increases the number of T-11 cells with a concomitant increase in the number of total lymphocytes. This represents a general boost in the body’s specific defense status, since lymphocytes actively defend the health of the body by forming antibodies against pathogens and their toxins. Castor oil is both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial (antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal), and there is also research indicating it kills cancer cells as well. The oil’s benefits can be derived by topical application (in fact, skin absorption is even more effective than swallowing it), and the application of heat augments the effect. When castor oil is absorbed through your skin, the lymphocyte count increase speeds up the removal of toxins from your tissues, which, in turn, promotes healing.
Light/Heat Flow Colonic (our most soothing colonic)60 minutes: $150
This colonic uses the Japanese technology of Onnetsu. The healing power of Far-infrared energy is sent to strategic places on the abdomen. Differences in temperature can be discerned, and these differences detect the location of unhealthy areas deep within the body, guiding the therapist to concentrate on these areas. As well, the penetration of light (8-15 microns) and heat (130* F) emanating from the Onnetsu device delivers therapeutic efficacy by increasing the flow of fluid and energy systems in the body: blood, lymph and Chi.
Raindrop Colonic Therapy (our most feel-good colonic)2 hours: $190
The Raindrop Technique is a method of using reflexology and massage techniques in combination with essential oils. Specific oils are applied to the body, bringing structural as well as electrical balance. This gentle treatment helps align the energy centers of the body, and allows release if they are blocked. Oils used are: Young Living products of Valor, Aroma-Siez, Ortho-ease, as well as oils of thyme, oregano, cypress, wintergreen, basil, peppermint, and marjoram. When this treatment is done in conjunction with colon therapy, the cleansing is more thorough.
When Raindrop colon therapy is combined with both floatation and La Casa’s unique body polish (said by the New York Times to “come close to magical realism, leaving you feeling otherworldly”), you have given your body an unsurpassed detoxification.
Bio-Colonic (our most oxygenating colonic)
60 minutes: $190
While you are having the benefit of your colon cleansing, you will be lying atop the Bio-Mat. Combining the healing effects of hefty emissions of both negative ions and far-infrared waves, your body will respond with enthusiasm. The Bio-Mat oxygenates the whole body as well as increasing circulation. It also alkalizes the body and strengthens the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells and killer T-cells. Most relevantly for the Bio-Colonic, the Bio-Mat dissolves hidden toxins, making them available for elimination through the cleansing action of the colon hydrotherapy.
Augment the cleansing effect by finishing with one of our implants. These are effective because blood travels at 42 miles per hour through the veins. All of the body’s blood passes through the liver every 5 minutes. The colon is connected to the liver through the portal vein. Thus, with an implant that is retained for 5 minutes, you give your body the opportunity for a thorough dumping of poisons through one whole blood cycle.
Our implants are:
Coffee: the caffeine in the coffee stimulates the bile duct to stay open. The more the bile duct is open, the more dumping of poisons happens. If the bile duct remains closed, the poisons simply re-circulate within the body.
Bring your own, no charge.
Wheat grass: the absolute best nourishment on earth. Believe it or not, whole body nourishment occurs through colon nourishment.
Bring your own, no charge.
Alkalizing mineral salts: pathogens cannot live in an alkaline environment. Whole body is alkalized, as the salts move from your colon, to your liver, to your bloodstream. We use the best mineral salts available, made by Robert Young: a mix of potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicabinate, calcium bi-carbonate and magnesium bi-carbonate.
Ozonated water: ozone kills every pathogen known to mankind. It is a viral-cide, bacterial-cide, fungicide, yeast-cide, and everything else-cide.
