Fluid - About Us

Fluid New York is located in Manhattan’s vibrant and subway-accessible Flatiron District.  Fluid is owned and managed by Dr. Francis Gonzalez, an experienced therapist with over 10 years of experience managing colon hydrotherapy clinics. Francis received her Certified Colon Hydrotherapy Instructor designation from the International Association of Colon Therapists.  This is the highest certification conferred by I-ACT and is evidence of her knowledge, expertise, and care in the field of colonic therapy.

In addition, as a Doctor of Naturopathy, Francis is able to address a wide array of health-related ailments. These are important credentials for ANY patient looking for colonic therapy, as New York state does not regulate this practice.  Unfortunately, most colonic centers in New York are operated by individuals with no formal training about the human body and detoxification pathways.  Even worse, most colonic centers in New York utilize inexpensive and unsanitary equipment — so called Woods Gravity colonics —  that expose the patient to fecal contamination and discomfort during their session.

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.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs.

At Fluid New York, our foremost priority is your health. That is why, unlike other colonic centers, we only use non-invasive FDA registered equipment and sterilized, disposable speculums during our colonic sessions. In addition, the water that goes into our clients’ intestinal tract undergoes a sophisticated multi-stage water filtration system and double-UV treatment that kills water-borne microorganisms.

Fluid New York is the only professional colon hydrotherapy clinic in Manhattan to offer the state-of-the art Angel of Water Colon Hydrotherapy system. The Angel of Water colonic system provides the safest, most comfortable, and most hygienic colonic irrigation experience available today. This colon hydrotherapy equipment is built with a sophisticated mixing valve that ensures that the water temperature is always maintained between 99 and 103 degrees — 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 needs.  Afterwards, you will be led to a private room where a certified therapist will review your health information and explain how the colon hydrotherapy system works.

The therapist will also answer any questions that you may have regarding the process and then provide you with privacy prior to commencing the colonic session. After you position yourself comfortably, gravity-fed water will then enter your colon through a rectal nozzle to initiate the process of releasing gas and 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 a personal shower spray and towel dry before dressing.

 

INTRAVENOUS THERAPY

Fluid Water Therapy offers customized intravenous therapies, vitamin drips, intramuscular injections, and chelation treatments… right on site! Trained medical professionals provide a full suite of customized, medical-grade IVs for internal detoxification, anxiety support, anti-aging, weight-loss and many other health benefits.

IV fluid therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the cells — and more effectively than oral supplements as nutrients bypass the digestive tract and the liver, thus enhancing absorption.

A typical IV session lasts 30 minutes up to a few hours, depending on the patient’s condition, and health protocol being followed. The number of treatments needed also varies by person and condition. Some individuals obtain long-lasting relief after a few treatments, while others require ongoing treatments to maintain the benefit.
 

FAQ

Fluid - FAQ

WHY ARE YOUR COLONICS THE BEST COLONICS IN NEW YORK?
Most colonic centers in New York are operated by untrained staff using unregulated home-made devices. These devices can expose the patient to fecal contamination and highly unpleasant odors and contact with feces. Some colonic centers even utilize so-called Woods Gravity devices or Colenz devices meant for home use. At Fluid Water Therapy, we only utilize the FDA-registered Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy systems and all our therapists are trained and certified by the International Association of Colon Therapists (I-ACT).

IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY SAFE?
Yes, but only when performed by professional colon hydrotherapists. Most colonic practitioners in New York are NOT certified by I-ACT and use unsanitary Woods Gravity devices. Our Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy system is FDA-registered and provide a much safer and comfortable colonic experience to our patients.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COLONIC AND AN ENEMA?
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon.  Colon hydrotherapy reaches the entire length of the colon — including the cecum, transverse, and descending colon — and is significantly more effective than an enema for removing fecal matter. “One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas” according to Dr. Norman Walker MD.

ARE COLONIC THERAPIES COMFORTABLE?
Yes, particularly when using our Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy system.  Most of our clients report that their colon hydrotherapy sessions at Fluid Water Therapy are refreshing and relaxing. This contrasts significantly with other clinics that use invasive and uncomfortable Woods Gravity devices.

HOW MUCH INTESTINAL TRACT IS CLEANSED DURING A COLONIC SESSION?
Due to the risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, a professional colon hydrotherapist would not allow a patient’s colonic session to last longer than 45 minutes. In most cases, a patient should expect to undergo five (5) colonic sessions if he or she wishes to cleanse the entire length of the colon.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR COLONICS?
We always recommend that you consult your physician or licensed healthcare practitioner if you have any concerns about the appropriateness of colon hydrotherapy. Contraindications for colon hydrotherapy include recent surgery, severe hemorrhoids, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, blood in stool, and cirrhosis of the liver, among others. No professional colon hydrotherapist would ever perform a colonic session without first verifying the client’s health history.

IS THERE ANY DANGER OF CONTAMINATION?
Our Angel of Water system utilizes disposable, sterile rectal nozzles and a multi-stage sanitation that includes ozone disinfecting protocols provided by Tersano Canada. The use of sterile disposables and sanitation protocols, combined with Fluid Water Therapy’s use of EPA-registered disinfectants removes the danger of contamination. Bear in mind that our hygiene standards are higher than other colonic centers in New York, as most utilize unsanitary devices.

HOW LONG DOES A COLONIC SESSION LAST?
A typical colonic session usually lasts 30 to 40 minutes so as to achieve effective colon cleansing without causing electrolyte and hydration imbalances. During your first visit to Fluid Water Therapy, please allow yourself an extra 45 minutes to discuss your goals and special needs with our certified colon hydrotherapists and naturopathic physicians.

CAN I HAVE A COLONIC DURING MENSTRUATION?
Certainly! Some colonic practitioners consider it a particularly good time for a female to have a colonic since the body is already undergoing a cleansing cycle. The decision to have a colonic while menstruating is strictly a matter of personal preference.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A COLONIC?
Please arrive on time! That ensures that you and other patients will have a relaxing colonic session. You should also refrain from eating anything heavy within 2 hours prior to your session. We also provide a full array of restorative organic juices to enhance your post-therapy experience.

AFTER MY COLONIC, CAN I GO BACK TO WORK OR WORK OUT?
Absolutely!  You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
