In December 2012, Fluid New York opened its facilities in Manhattan’s popular Flatiron District after making substantial upgrades to the former Natural Vitality Center. Fluid is owned and managed by Dr. Francis Gonzalez, an experienced therapist with over 10 years of experience managing colon hydrotherapy clinics in New York, Maryland, and the Caribbean. Francis received a “Certified Instructor” designation from the International Association of Colon Therapists, the highest certification conferred by I-ACT, and obtained a Doctor of Naturopathy degree from Clayton College of Natural Health.
Along with Francis, Shannon Conklin and Lauren Torres comprise the staff of Fluid’s certified therapists. Shannon obtained her “Certified Colon Hydrotherapist” designation from I-ACT and has been involved in the field of alternative medicine for over 8 years in Manhattan and Long Island. Lauren is a Certified Medical Assistant and previously assisted at various colonoscopies and endoscopies at a gastroenterologist clinic.
At Fluid we work hand in hand with our clients to understand their wellness goals. You will always be able to consult any health-related issues with our certified therapists. Our focus is your entire wellness, not just your intestinal health. Plus, you’ll receive proper nutritional guidance and access to exclusive medical-grade supplements.
According to the International Association of Colon Therapists, colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs.
At Fluid Water Therapy our foremost priority is your health. That is why we only use FDA-registered equipment and sterilized, disposable rectal nozzles during our colon hydrotherapy sessions. In addition, we ensure the quality of the water that goes into our clients’ system by utilizing a sophisticated multi-stage water filtration system and double-UV light process that kills water-borne microorganisms.
We are proud to be part of a select group of professional therapists who offer the state-of-the art Angel of Water Surround ® colon hydrotherapy system (“AWS”). The AWS provides a safe, comfortable, and hygienic colonic irrigation experience. Its mixing valve ensures that the water temperature is maintained between 99 and 103 degrees Fahrenheit — the optimal range for effective intestinal cleansing.
During your first visit to Fluid, you will be asked to complete a health history form in our relaxing waiting room. This information will help us determine any pre-existing health issues and understand your wellness goals. After the health history form is completed, you will be led to a private room where a therapist will review your health information with you and explain how the AWS colon hydrotherapy system works.
The therapist will also answer any questions that you may have regarding the process and then provide you with privacy so that you may undress and lie down on the AWS machine. After you position yourself comfortably and insert the rectal nozzle, gravity-fed water will then enter your colon to initiate peristalsis, allowing you to release fecal matter.
During your session at Fluid, you can watch a movie, listen to some soothing music, or simply relax. At the end of the session you will remove the rectal nozzle and lean back into a lounge position to drain the colon. You will then rinse with the AWS’s personal shower spray and towel dry before dressing.
SONIC LIFE TURBOSONIC®
The Turbosonic® is a whole-body vibration platform that enables the user to train various muscles and trigger bodily reactions. Whole-body vibration is initiated by a vibrating platform on which the user stands. The motors underneath the platform transmit vibration to the user.
These vibrations activate the lymphatic system by circulating stagnant fluids and increase the energy in the cells so that they can function more effectively. In addition to enhancing the body’s detoxification functions, the Turbosonic helps release stress and tension during the process.
