Terivik Hands Massage and Colon Cleanse
Massage Therapy and Colon Hydrotherapy in Oak Ridge and Knoxville Tennessee. In a Perfect World, with no Stress, Tension or Pollution, we would not require massage and colon therapy.
When under stress, our bodies react physically. Stress, tension, and emotion are all connected together, and all affect our basic body functions. Massage serves as an emotional, as well as physical, release. Our interest in massage and the interconnectivity of the mental and physical led to our study of the colon and its relationship to health and well being. We wanted to combine both therapies in our practice. Every day we introduce toxins into our systems. Processed foods, fatty foods, caffeine, refined sugar, foods with preservatives, as well as from outdoor and indoor environmental pollution. All of this can cause the colon to become sluggish. This can also allow the toxins to enter the blood stream and circulate through the body, leading to a variety of health problems. You are likely experiencing at least one detrimental effect of this condition right now and may have even been misdiagnosed because of this. Terivik Hands can help.

"After enduring a very stressful work atmosphere, I began having massages for relaxation and relief. During my first massage, the therapist advised me to drink plenty of water. She said due to my taut muscles, I might experience a day or two or soreness. A day or two turned into five days. I continued to have weekly massages and my body gradually released the built up stress.
Around the same time, I read a book entitled BODY THERAPY, by William S. Leigh and was fascinated by the different modalities involved in massage. I wanted to know more. I quizzed my massage therapist about her education and found out that she had attended C.O.R.E. Institute in Knoxville."
After completing the program C.O.R.E. offered, Ms. Ruffin enrolled in The Health Alternatives School of Colon Hydrotherapy in Dayton, Ohio where she completed her studies in anatomy and physiology of the human digestive system.
Colon Hydrotherapy Testimonials
"I am a recent client and had the colon-cleansing service that you provide. I am a private person and was a little reluctant to try the service, though I recognize the healthy benefits of periodic colon-cleansing. I was very happy with the experience. The equipment was clean, the process was easy, and my privacy was respected. Even though the process is private, I felt that assistance was immediately available should I need it. I especially appreciated the availability of a shower located adjacent to the colon-cleansing area. I will definitely recommend your service to my friends and will definitely do it again." | C.S. of Oak Ridge, TN
"When I first heard of this method of colonic cleansing, I must admit I, like some others, expressed my skepticism of needing any thing like this. After all, I prided myself with being regular and really saw no need for anything like that. However, I gave in and received a colon cleanse with Terivik Hands Colon Therapy Center. My experience was relaxing (I catch up on a lot of my reading during the process) and it has been helpful in my elimination. Now I receive a colon cleanse at least twice a year and have seen good results." | A.H. of Oak Ridge, TNRead More Colon Therapy Reviews Here
