What goods or services do you provide? Colon hydrotherapy, massage therapy, yoga, natural health and nutrition/healing
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? We are the only colon hydrotherapy practitioners in the valley.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? We understand that discussing your bowel movements with a complete stranger can sometimes be a bit awkward. We are extremely compassionate and do our best to help our clients feel as comfortable as possible.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: We have both been practicing massage therapy for the past 10 years. We also have backgrounds in yoga and holistic nutrition. Three years ago we decided to bring colon hydrotherapy to the valley. At the time, no one was doing it here and we thought it would be a great service to bring to the area. Collectively we have a great knowledge of the body and natural health, so, it seemed liked a perfect progression for our careers.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? Most people are pretty serious when they are talking about their bowel movements. However, we both have a good sense of humor, and we are usually laughing with our clients after a few minutes. Laughter is the best therapy, so we try to keep things as light as possible and people usually loosen up quickly.
