Taking this course and being hosted at a retreat house was more than I could have asked for. Becoming a Certified Professional Colon Hydrotherapist at the Academy was excellent. I didn't realize that I needed a break from living in the city, and to unwind in the country. It was refreshing and nourishing to stay at the retreat house. This course was informative beyond my expectations. Colon cleansing is such a a seldom discussed health matter. This course enlightened my already insistent journey of health and wellness. Joanne's years of experience and mentorship is so impressive. If you are considering taking this course, do not hesitate, as I highly recommend it.
