Fluid - About Us

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.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY

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.

FAQ

Fluid - FAQ

HOW ARE YOUR COLONIC SESSIONS DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
Many advertised colonics are often performed by untrained personnel using unregulated, home-made systems referred to as “Woods Gravity” method. At Fluid, we only utilize the FDA-registered Angel of Water system and all our therapists are certified and trained by the International Association of Colon Therapists (I-ACT).

IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY SAFE?
Yes, especially when performed by a professional therapist. In fact, with the Angel of Water system, sessions are much safer and easier than a traditional enema.

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 and is significantly more effective in removing fecal matter — “one colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas” according to Dr. Norman Walker, a vegetable juicing pioneer.

ARE COLONIC SESSIONS PAINFUL?
Absolutely not.  In fact, most of our clients report that their colon hydrotherapy sessions at Fluid are both refreshing and relaxing.

HOW MUCH INTESTINAL TRACT IS CLEANSED DURING A COLONIC SESSION?
The entire length of the colon can be cleansed usually within 4 to 5 sessions.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS?
We always recommend that you consult your physician or licensed healthcare practitioner if you have any concerns about your health or the appropriateness of colon hydrotherapy. Contraindications when using the Angel of Water include, but are not limited to — recent colon, rectal or abdominal surgery, congestive heart failure, intestinal perforations, carcinoma of the rectum, fissures or fistula, severe hemorrhoids, abdominal hernia, renal insufficiency, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, blood in stool, first or last trimester of pregnancy, and cirrhosis of the liver.

IS THERE ANY DANGER OF CONTAMINATION?
The Angel of Water system utilizes single-use, sterile rectal nozzles and a multi-stage sanitation protocol. The use of sterile disposables and sanitation protocol, combined with Fluid’s use of EPA-registered disinfectants removes the danger of contamination.

HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?
Typical sessions usually last 30 to 40 minutes. During your first visit, please allow yourself an extra 45 minutes to discuss your goals and special needs with our therapists.

DOES MENSTRUATION AFFECT THE COLONIC SESSION?
No. Some practitioners consider it a particularly good time to have a session since the body is already undergoing a cleansing cycle. Nonetheless, the decision is strictly a matter of client preference.

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR A SESSION?
You should refrain from eating within 2 hours prior to your session. Relax… and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.

WILL I BE TIRED OR UNCOMFORTABLE AFTER MY SESSION?
Probably not, yet some clients have reported a slight tiredness similar to a post-workout feeling.  Therefore, we recommend that you sip warm liquids after your therapy to soothe your system.

CAN I DO ANY WORK OR EXERCISE AFTER MY SESSION?
Absolutely!  You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
