Tonya Brown has learned and practiced holistic health therapies most of her life.  As a cultural and traditional family practice, she was excited to be certified as a colon hydro-therapist and holistic health consultant in 2003 from the Wholistic Training Institute. Brown personally understands the limitless benefits of internal detoxification and how critical it is to overall health.
According to Tonya, "I love my practice and am committed to help educate about the colon connection and its effect on all bodily functions. Cleansing, healing rejuvenating the colon helps with illness, disease prevention, strengthen the immune system and build and maintain a healthy mind and body. More people are experiencing the benefits of holistic health practices and lifestyle habits. I’m grateful to be a part of the movement toward holistic health as a natural part of life."

I practice detoxification therapies for body systems; oral detox programs, colon hydrotherapy, ionic foot baths, ear coning/candling, consulting on colon hygiene, optimum nutrition through healthy dietary/lifestyle habits. Coach effective techniques for clients that aid detoxification sessions
