Lissa McGraw is the proud and blessed owner of Espirit Colon Hydrotherapy and Wellness Center. Espirit began as a means for Lissa to heal herself after years of misery from digestive issues that compromised her joy for life. Through dietary changes, eliminating certain life stressors and incorporating colon therapy into her monthly regime, she can now share with others what she learned through her own journey to health. She believes wholeheartedly that without colon therapy she would not be the happy, healthy individual she is today. Lissa has a great deal of compassion for those dealing with constipation, hemorrhoids, gas, bloating, cellulite, headaches and other digestive disorders. Having dealt with many of these same issues herself, she has helped those clients that have found their way to Espirit. Lissa is an IACT certified colon hydrotherapist, bioelectric lymphatic drainage therapist, certified in administering additives (with a doctor prescription), trained in aromatherapy, a Reiki master, and a Vibrational Sound therapist. She is always looking for the next great service to bring to Espirit to further help her clients. Lissa is also blessed with the beautiful and caring women that work as therapists at her center. She surrounds herself with like-minded individuals that have been called to the field of healing and has great love and trust for those employed at Espirit. Her hope is that all people that are frustrated with feeling miserable or who are just wanting to cleanse their bodies, make their way into Espirit where they will feel loved and supported. She welcomes all to experience the joy of colon hydrotherapy!
Hi, my name is Jackie! Mother. Yogi. Vegan. Colonics helped change my life. I had intestinal issues growing up. I have the belief that we can cure all disease through healing our gut, which is essentially our second brain. Colonics, through adding water to our bodies, is a great way to heal and rejuvenate and regenerate. The indigenous have a saying, “mni wiconi,” which means “water is life.” I’m excited to help you on your journey to health!
Hi! I’m Nicole! Living with chronic illness has motivated me to seek out alternative ways to support my body. Colonics have been life changing for me and they have been one of the tools that has helped me in my healing. I’ve had digestive issues for many years. My body does not detox well and the services at Espirit have helped alleviate the symptoms of my Lyme Disease. I can’t imagine living my life without colonics and I’m happy to say that I’ve been inspired by the other therapists at Espirit to want to provide guidance to others.
Heidi Parres has always led a healthy lifestyle including running, weight training, yoga, and proper nutrition. However, she was still struggling daily with constipation and lethargy. Her life was full of stress from work and the endless anxiety from fighting digestive issues. Nothing seemed to relieve the symptoms so she explored colon hydrotherapy to see if it would provide her some relief. What she didn't realize is that it would completely change her life! She lost the 10lbs that wouldn't budge, it increased her energy and freed her of digestive pain. That excitement inspired her to commit to a career change to help others improve their health and create overall wellness. Heidi understands what you are struggling with and is empathetic to the suffering that toxic build up and lifestyle stresses can cause. She is committed to getting you closer to living a healthier and renewed life.
Hi. I’m Lisa West. I am a physical therapist, yoga teacher and bodyworker practicing for over 20 years. My career has been focused on orthopedic injuries with special interest and attention to the spine and chronic pain. I currently specialize in John Barnes Myofascial Release, as well as energy healing and craniosacral therapy. I have spent most of my adult life exploring and learning many different ways to address physical, energetic and emotional pain.
My largest interest lies in the relationship between the physical and energetic bodies and in how the mind, body and spirit intertwine, and has a special focus on how to address the nervous system.
In my free time I love being in nature, spending time with my favorite people and my cats and learning as much as I can about this wild and magical place we live in and our amazing bodies that carry us through it.
Hi! I’m Harmony and I’ve been a client at Espirit for 5 years. I’m now lucky enough to work at Lissa’s magical little place in Ventura! I’ve been getting colonics since I was 14 and will absolutely continue to get them for the rest of my life! Colonics are a huge part of my self care regimen. I have dealt with serious digestive issues, stress, and anxiety. I eat a plant based diet, use homeopathic remedies, and I’m active, but I still get flare ups with extreme bloating and abdominal pain when I eat something that my body doesn’t like or I find myself in a stressful situation. I encourage anyone who wants to feel good and do good things for your body to come to Espirit and change your life! It really is instant gratification. The people who work here are wonderful and loving, so you’ll feel right at home. I’m always happy to share my own experience with clients who come in or call, so don’t hesitate to ask! I love seeing how excited people get when they come out of their first colonic feeling amazing and inspired! So, come on in and experience the magic!
