Gail Naas, LMT/CT
Gail Naas has been a practicing body worker/therapist since 1989 and has specialized in Colon Hydrotherapy and CranioSacral Therapy. Additionally is she utilizes a Biofeedback Electro-Stimulation Technology (BEST tm) device to assist clients relaxation training and muscle reeducation.

Ms. Naas is the President Elect of the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT), and is the Chair of the Membership and Marketing and Public Relation Committees.

Gail trained at American Institute, School of Wellness and Beauty Upledger Institute and Seminar Network International.
Gail is also an advanced massage therapy instructor at the American Institute in Margate, FL. Additionally she trains colon hydrotherapists.

Colon Hydrotherapy is the gentle infusion of water into the large intestine for the purpose of cleaning it out. It is a safe and effective procedure of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs or chemicals. Filtered warm water is introduced into the colon with the use of disposable speculums and tubing. The waste is softened and loosened which results in evacuation through natural peristalsis. The process of inserting water and then allowing the water and waste to be evacuated is repeated several times during a session. Client comfort and dignity is always maintained.

Colon Hydrotherapy has shown to be more effective and better tolerated than the standard methods of bowel prep for colonoscopy.

Biofeedback Electro-Stimulation Technology (BEST tm) is a Neurology Biofeedback device to assist clients with relaxation training and muscle re-education. Similar devices are used for symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain, and adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain.

Avazzia Biofeedback Electro-Stimulation Technology™ Devices (B.E.S.T. ™) were developed as simple, easy-to-use, hand-held devices for non-pharmaceutical pain relief.

BEST™ devices produce micro-current electrical impulses, which are transmitted by electrodes in the device through the skin to interface with the body’s internal peripheral nervous system for the purpose of therapeutic intervention. BEST™ devices are controlled by a high performance microcomputer chip, into which AVAZZIA embeds proprietary software.

System Feedback is the System's (in this case, the body’s) response to the stimulus, and the technology’s ability to detect, measure, analyze and respond to the body. With each response, the electrical properties of the tissue change. The device detects the change and responds, resulting in the very next signal being modified. This is possible because of the development of modern high-speed microprocessors, which are able to establish a “cybernetic loop” between electronic instrument and living body.
