My latest wellness adventure had brought me to the cobblestones of Soho off Spring Street, where Tracy Piper -- highly regarded by gastrointestinally-challenged Manhattanites as nothing short of a miracle worker -- owns and operates The Piper Center. OK, enough stalling, in case you haven't guessed yet (all two of you), I'd just had my very first colonic.
Trust me, I know what images (not to mention snickers and funny faces) that conjures up. The mere word brings about the most unsavory mental concepts, and I'm here to tell you that many of them (in my experience) were in fact true! But in addition to the potential weight loss, enhanced energy and overall well-being that's touted to result from colon therapy, if you have fear of intimacy or being vulnerable, this is a spectacular way to work through those fears.
