Good Will and Gratitude

boy-with-butterfliesI have been reflecting on Gratitude. My husband Paul has taught me to enjoy exploring where words have come from, their etymology. Gratitude: “before 1447 meant good will; later on it came to mean grace or favor.” It derives from the Latin Thankfulness: “The meaning of Thankfulness is first recorded in English in 1565.” Isn’t it odd that we have put a beginning date on knowing gratitude? I’d like to think this attitude has been with us for eons. Just look at the spectacular uniqueness of this phenomenal planet we call Home, Earth! Can you believe that we have been given the grace to be in it’s evolution? Yes, I believe that we can affect the growth of our world by “being” integrity, accountability, and gratitude. And let’s not forget love! I ask, how can I live more consciously? I always find myself coming back to the basics. First, we must nurture ourselves by attending to our health on all levels: not only physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Think of it as preparing yourself to embody it all.

I offer you my support in taking your next step: Colon Hydrotherapy is a remarkable tool for “jump starting”your renewed sense of well-being. After 40 years, I still receive colonics regularly and love the way I feel afterwards. Clarity. Think of it as an inspiration. Imagine your belly being refreshed in the internal spa of gentle water flowing in and out like a tide. Swami Muktananda said to me in support of my work many years ago: “Water is a conductor of Light.” Infusing water into the lower 2 chakras brings the Light, which starts the healing on all levels. Colon Hydrotherapy brings me back to this tangible awareness.

Yes, I am back in practice. My fractured wrist is mending well, our equipment has been overhauled, and the water heater upgraded. I am available Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Olga is available Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, as well as early mornings on the other days. (I am beginning my days a little later so I have time for my own self-care.)

Thank you for believing in me and what I have to offer through colon hydrotherapy. This practice can give you so much more than a simple cleansing. And just that is okay too! We can meet you wherever you are. Meanwhile, I invite you to extend your good will and shine your inner Light.

With Love and Light,

What is life asking of YOU?


Just before intending to send you the following blog last week, I not only had wrist surgery after a hard fall, but also, our colonic equipment broke! My wrist and device are both requiring a few weeks to repair and upgrade. I’m aiming for October 25, 2018 as our re-opening date.What kind of meaning can I give to these events? Certainly, I am being asked to STOP and surrender, to let go of the control illusion. I guess I’m so stubborn that it took both a physical AND a mechanical break to wake me up! To force a shift in consciousness.


Healing prayers are welcome.
I’ll keep you posted.

Now back to the old, but-not-fake, news…

After being supported by Bobbi Parish’s wonderful blog-writing over the last couple of years, I’d like to introduce you to Amy Mercury. She will be helping me to create new educational information for you. We’d love to hear what gut news you’d like to learn about!

In the meantime, I’d like to update you on my life and work. As you know, I thought I might have retired by now, but as I approach 70 I find myself healthy and energized, still very much enjoying being a colon hydrotherapist. I’ve asked myself, how do I do this with balance? Working 3 days a week, starting at 10 AM and ending at 7 PM seems to be the answer for me. I credit my energetic attitude to all of my years of receiving colonics, along with eating well and living well. I think most of you know my story – I suffered from drug-induced anorexia (due to my diet pill addiction paid for by medical insurance!) way back in my 20’s. Meeting a woman who healed herself from cancer through diet woke me up to a whole new path of healing, which included weekly colon hydrotherapy for probably 2 years (you can’t overdo it!). I was motivated by my own recovery to begin sharing this amazing therapy with others in 1980. After 25 years of practicing in Boston, I moved to Connecticut to live with my soul mate, Paul. Now it is 15 years later, and I am delighted to still be available to serve the Connecticut community.

What’s noticeable about Connecticut is that the climate here is more conservative than Boston towards integrative health care. People are more cautious. If I could convince all of you who have seen me before to come even once a year for colonic renewal, that would be impressive. Have you forgotten how great you feel afterwards? What is holding you back? We live in an increasingly toxic world. All you have to lose is yourself!

There are only a few of us colon hydrotherapists practicing in Connecticut, but what’s unique to this state is that most of us have been offering colon hydrotherapy for a long time. In other words, you have several choices to see top-notch therapists – just go to and look at the referral list of Connecticut practitioners. We may not be a large group, but we are all talented in our own unique ways. As an elder now in the colon hydrotherapy world, my goal is to support us all in achieving greater health.

As for my personal life, I have a wonderful husband and a devoted dog, Bo. What more could I ask for? Long walks with Bo in the woods are my “religion”. I am grateful for 2 delightful grandchildren as well. Paul challenges me to be more of my authentic self every day. I am blessed to be living consciously and sharing my journey with Paul, even though the path may feel arduous at times. Mostly though, it’s full of joy and gratitude for all the blessings bestowed on me. That includes each of you, by the way, even if I have only seen you once. Thank you for trusting me!
Love, Connie connie-and-bo

Colon Hydrotherapy: The Alternative Choice For Colonoscopy Preparation


Like most people, we at Constance Jones – Colon Hydrotherapy know that every adult over 50 should get a colonoscopy, also known as a colon cancer screening test. Gastroenterologists suggest that we are more prone to colon issues as we age and recommend this as an effective diagnostic procedure. Besides early detection of diseases, a colonoscopy can be used preventatively, with the ability of the performing doctor to remove polyps right on the spot.

Traditionally, those getting this type of screening would have to fast for 24 hours, and drink a gallon of liquid laxatives the night before going into the clinic. However, some folks are not able to stomach the laxatives or complain of a sleepless night due to frequent visits to the bathroom. In addition, employees going in for a screening often have to lose a day of work to prepare.

Fortunately, there is now a complementary method to prepare for a colonoscopy, and that method is colon hydrotherapy. Please see the attached video with groundbreaking news about its use from Danbury Hospital where this colonoscopy prep has been recommended and performed for a few years now.

This procedure involves gentle infusions of warm water into the rectum and large intestine that’s meant to irrigate and clean these areas. The procedure is performed in a soothing environment by a trained practitioner. Colon hydrotherapy has been shown to be just as effective as the traditional methods of preparation, and has the added benefit of being minimally invasive. It can also be used in addition to the prescribed prep as a way to be more thorough and avoid the all-night bathroom visits.

A practitioner of holistic colonic irrigation since 1980, there is no one in Connecticut that’s better at performing this procedure than Constance Jones. Using a special, FDA-registered device, she takes a gentle, nurturing approach to the work, consistently working with great care and compassion.

Water as a Healing Element in Colon Hydrotherapy


Colon Hydrotherapy – often called colonic irrigation or colon cleansing – is a procedure in which the rectum and large intestine are cleansed using safe, gentle infusions of warm water. It is a procedure that has a long history, as Constance Jones – Colon Hydrotherapy in Manchester is well-aware of.

The notion of there being value to the internal water cleansing of the colon has been widely accepted since ancient times, with references initially found in Egyptian texts. Water as a healing element in both eastern and western medical traditions has continued to be practiced in various ways throughout the centuries. Medical science recognizes that much of our body’s tremendous healing ability depends on water. Water’s healing potential is still available today as part of an alternative approach to well being through Colon Hydrotherapy.

Nonetheless, despite the fact that numerous studies have shown no adverse effects of this procedure, and that earlier studies dismissing its effectiveness are based on flawed designs or lack statistical significance, it is still largely ignored or misunderstood by most of the traditional medical establishment. Perhaps because we consider this a taboo subject in our culture, or simply that we have not had the funds to conduct research studies in the US.

Increasingly, though, the tide is turning when it comes to Colon Hydrotherapy. A recent study conducted in Japan’s Yoko Clinic showed not only that this procedure has no adverse side-effects, but also that doctors there are exploring how to incorporate colonics into their protocols for a variety of ailments.

Although we Colon Hydrotherapists cannot make such claims, the naturopaths with whom we affiliate do. One Connecticut naturopath said this: “Many people can benefit from a gentle colon cleansing. The increase in the chemical and metal toxins introduced into our environment in the last fifty years has contributed to a dramatic increase in the incidence of auto-immune diseases. In an attempt to detoxify, our bowels, kidneys and liver are being overloaded. In addition, the over-processed Standard American Diet (SAD) is severely lacking in fiber and high in saturated fats. As a result, our eliminative channels have become blocked or dysfunctional. These factors combined weaken the immune system and increase our vulnerability to virus, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections.”
