Term Definition
Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that focuses on correcting the causes of physical problems from subluxations or misalignments of the bones in the body, especially the spine. A Chiropractor (D.C.) provides health care that is holistic and improves people’s lives by optimizing the functioning of the nervous system, so the body is able to function better.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon cleansing is removing stool from the colon through the use of laxatives, enemas, enzymes, herbal teas, or dietary supplements. The theory behind colon cleansing is that it helps remove toxins from the body (detoxification) and helps the "good" bacteria in the colon to flourish.  This helps balance body chemistry, eliminate waste, and restore proper tissue and organ function.

Colon Hydrotherapy (also known as colonics) uses filtered water passed through the colon to accomplish detoxification and removal of excess toxins from the body. It has been known to help with weight loss, weight management and other types of physical cleanses.

Constellation Healing

A constellation is a process that allows your subconscious dynamics to reveal hidden secrets that cause problems in your life. Once something is conscious, you can be empowered to make better choices that serve you beyond any inherited negative patterns that do not.

Usually through a group process, you are supported by a skilled facilitator with attendees who represent aspects or ancestors as needed. They respond to the energy of your subconscious. The facilitator reads the energy of the core issue that needs to be expressed and works toward resolution of internal conflict(s). A new reality emerges once hidden secrets are revealed and energy is released.
