At Gravity East Village, you will find our lovely wellness center in New York City offering Colon Hydrotherapy. Proper elimination is the most important element in creating health. The colon, also known as the large intestine, is the collection site for most of the unwanted materials that the body would like to eliminate. This includes food residues, metabolic wastes and foreign toxins like food additives, drug residues and industrial pollutants. Unsuccessful or incomplete elimination of this material prevents our bodies from reaching peak levels of health and energy. Through diet transition, gravity colonics and cleansing programs we assist our clients in maintaining a high level of internal cleanliness that translates over into the rest of the body.
Gravity colonics generates a simultaneous in-flow and out-flow of water, facilitating an effective and thorough cleansing of the colon while providing a comfortable session for our clients. There is no pressurized machine used of any kind. At Gravity East Village, we use a state of the art water filtration that includes an ultra violet light purification. Your certified Colon Hydro-therapist will be with you throughout the entire session. We schedule a one hour and fifteen minute appointment. We adhere to a high standard of cleanliness, and sterilization of stainless steel speculums occur using a heat sterilizer medical grade autoclave. Disposable speculums are available upon request at and additional fee of $4. Only an FDA approved disinfecting solution is used. Every new client will have an opportunity to learn ways to improve digestion and receive an information chart to take home.
Please advise us of any health issues, medications, surgeries of if you are pregnant or planning to be pregnant when scheduling a colonic treatment.
Please see our preparation guidelines.
The real truth about food comes out in the end!
Gravity East Village brings on the heat offering private Infrared Sauna sessions in NYC!
Our skin is the largest elimination organ of the body. Sweating is fantastic in that it opens up the passageways of the skin and allows toxins to release freely. Infra red saunas are specially designed dry heat saunas for deep cleansing (esp. of heavy metals). The infrared rays (not to be confused with ultraviolet rays) penetrate the body up to an inch and a half deep causing the liquid within our cells to vibrate, shaking free bonded toxins and allowing them to flow out into circulation and away from the tissue. This internal heating also stimulates the immune system and increasing the production of white blood cells and anticancer proteins.
There are benefits to using an infrared sauna over a regular sauna. You will flush out toxins. You will sweat and this helps to flush out toxins from the body that reduces toxic overload. With an infrared sauna the sweating is deeper and more profuse, enabling your body to excrete a higher percentage of toxins than with a conventional sauna. Infrared saunas run 20-60 degrees lower, making it easier to tolerate the heat which makes it more comfortable.
During your sauna session, you will stimulate better blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This can lower blood pressure and help to relax tight muscles and ease minor aches and pains. Enjoy drug-free pain relief if you have arthritis or troublesome muscle or joint pain that helps reduce stiffness and inflammation.
Weight loss. Yes, you will sweat out some ‘water weight’ during a sauna session that you will restore when you re-hydrate. However, there is evidence that infrared saunas, because of their ability to penetrate the skin more deeply, increases the metabolic rate and can help the body burn off anywhere from 200 – 600 calories in a half hour session. A regular sauna session will not melt away tummy fat, but with a healthy diet and exercise can give your metabolism an extra boost while you are lounge and relax.
Food. Why is it so complicated? At Gravity East Village we understand the relationship between our bodies and our emotions in relation to food choices.

Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA)
Donna Perrone has been trained through Premier Labs, and is offering Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) sessions at Gravity East Village. QRA is a testing method that is simple, yet effective in testing the bio-energetic status of the body’s key organs and glands using a science-proven muscle testing technique on medically accepted acupuncture reflex points. The procedure taps into the wisdom of the body telling the practitioner what treatment is needed to create balance, strength and well-being. It’s non-invasive and non-toxic.
The O-Ring Test can be used to quickly detect the effect (positive or negative) of foods and nutritional supplements for an individual without taking them.
If you want to know whether a food or nutritional supplement is good for you, and if so, how much of it to take this may be a helpful process to explore.
Please take advantage of a free health consultation with Donna using Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) available to all existing clients of GEV. Please avoid all supplementation for 24 hours before your session.

Coffee Enema & Castor Oil Pack Session
Have you ever cleansed your liver? It has been well documented the coffee enemas are a viable way to cleanse and rejuvenate your body and can be a great resource to aid the body in healing of disease or imbalance.
I have asked many of our clients whether they had ever tried a coffee enema, and I was surprised that most of them had never explored this valuable cleansing method. Most expressed that they thought they would do it wrong or make a mess. This got me thinking that this is a great service to offer our clients to help them to experience a liver cleanse.
I devised a session that will begin with a Castor Oil Pack using excellent quality Premier Castor Oil with Young Living’s Juva Flex (optional) on an organic cotton Flannel using an Earthwrappe heating pad for 20 minutes. You will enjoy Young Living Aromatherapy Oils under your feet to create a better relaxation.
While your Castor Oil Pack is underway to turn on your liver and gallbladder cleanse your Therapist will prepare fresh ground Premier Organic Coffee with state of the art filtered Water.
When your Castor Oil Pack is done your Therapist will conduct the Coffee Enema using your own Enema Bucket and the first round of coffee will reside in the lower portion of the colon. You will hold the coffee for 10 minutes. When the time is completed you will release on the toilet. A second round of coffee is taken and holding for 10 minutes more. Then release and finish up.
You can take your coffee enema bucket home (a $10 value) and if you would like the recipe to do this at home I would be happy to share it with you. Gravity sells all the items needed to do a coffee enema such as castor oil, flannel, enema bucket, coffee.
Preference: Coffee enemas should be done earlier in the day not later then 3 pm and should be scheduled after a morning bowel movement or colonic session. Two coffee enemas may be done within one week spaced 48 hours apart.
If you are pregnant or have caffeine sensitivity it is not recommended to do a coffee enema.
Check out Donna’s video about coffee enema.
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that promotes healing through the reduction of stress by means of relaxation. “Rei” meaning universal spiritual wisdom and “Ki” meaning life force energy.
Reiki works to restore a healthy flow of energy throughout the body, thereby supporting the body’s natural healing abilities, activating inner guidance, and leaving the recipient feeling centered with a sense of clarity and peace.
During a session, the practitioner functions as a conduit, channeling universal life force energy to the client to bring balance back to the energetic body. The practitioner may or may not gently place hands on various parts of the body / energy centers in order to direct the flow of energy. Reiki is received fully clothed in a lying down position.
