Joanie is the foundation of Oasis Colonics, a colon hydrotherapy clinic in Portland, Oregon. She has been intimately involved in the Health and Wellness industry for 40+ years.
Joanie was trained as a colon hydrotherapist in 1980. Over the years she has administered tens of thousands of colonic treatments in various areas of the United States including the Hawaiian Islands where she lived for 7 years.
Her sensitivity to the uniqueness of every individual ensures that the colonic experience will be as effective and comfortable as can be. Her sense of humor contributes to a relaxed atmosphere, and sets her clients at ease. Joanie had the good fortune of mentoring with a skilled doctor who pioneered natural medical practices in the 1970′s in Tucson, Arizona “back in the day.” Since that time she has administered colonics in alternative healing centers, naturopathic clinics and privately. She has witnessed much growth and change in the colon health field, and has networked with numerous other colonic therapists throughout the years. She currently works in collaboration with a variety of physicians, caring for their patients by referral.
By the age of 21, Angela had already realized how important it was to keep your body clean. One of her favorite professors presented the idea of cleansing as a way of healing. From the first colonic she received, she instantly felt the benefits. That was the beginning of her journey as a colon hydrotherapist.
Angela’s first job as a colon therapist was at the Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, a raw foods healing and detox retreat center. At a young age her eyes were blown wide open to the power of whole body cleansing. She had the unique experience of working as a colon therapist with individuals who had a wide range of reasons for being there. Many were already in a state of health, and doing regular cleanses to stay that way. Others had been diagnosed with cancer and other degenerative diseases. Many had already gone the conventional route of chemotherapy, radiation, drugs and surgeries; and after their treatments failed, OHI gave them renewed hope through detox regimens and highly nutritious, living foods.
Angela’s inspiring discovery was that most of her clients, who had been told by conventional medical doctors that there was nothing left to be done for them, would improve and heal. These experiences and observations, at such a tender age, profoundly shaped her perspectives. She has continued on the natural healing path ever since, working alongside many colon therapists in both San Diego and Portland.
