Colonic Angels – My doctors blamed my 3-week long periods on the fibroids in my uterus. The first time they operated, they removed 3 fibroids, one so dense that the sonogram didn't spy the 3 other fibroids hiding behind it, which a 2nd operation removed. The fibroid left in in the lining can't be removed by such a simple procedure... for that one they will have to go in through my belly. And yet, after two operations and 6 fewer fibroids - I was still
getting hugely heavy periods for 3 long weeks each month, a situation that lasted for over a year. Needless to say I was getting pretty anemic, and my sex and emotional lives were taking quite a hit. Then I started seeing Gaia. After my first session with her, my next period lasted 6 days ONLY, which was nothing short
of a miracle for me. I did several more sessions with her - I was doing a 6-week long cleanse and saw her weekly - not least as she's as kind and charming, as disarming as humans come - and am ecstatic to report that thanks to Gaia my menstrual cycle is entirely back on track. I would suggest anyone who has fibroids or otherwise unpleasantly long menses seek her out. She changed my life significantly! Thanks again Gaia. X
Best massage – Behind a small door on 20th street between park and broadway lies a hidden gem of a spa that I was thrilled to discover and feel like I need to share this "insider scoop" because it is such an amazing spa I can't believe more people don't know it.
I did purifying salt sauna that uses himalayan salt and black sea salt before getting my skin scrubbed down to absolute smoothness with the body polish that uses some kind of seaweed and left my skin simply glowing. I feel like all the grime and pollution that builds up in my pores from living in NYC were all magically scrubbed away.
I didn't have enough time to try any of their other services but definitely want to come back to do a day package.
Unforgettable gift experience! – A huge tension reliever! La Casa is a spa of knowledge and body therapy. The staff makes a person feel like they have come home and savored a dose of relaxation. The much needed body pampering is an escape from emotional holiday stress. I plan on becoming a regular customer to improve my knowledge and give my body what I deserve.
Thank You La Casa, your name says it all!
Best Massage I've ever had!!! – I booked an Aromatherapy Massage without knowing what to expect, and it was AMAZING!! Blended citrus oils were released over my body along with hot towels infused with different oils. This was the perfect gift to myself over the holidays. I'm a runner, and I often feel sore and my muscles feel tight, but after this massage, my tired and achy muscles felt relaxed and relieved. I feel like a new woman- even my skin feels smoother and younger. I recommend this Spa to anyone who needs to get away to retreat for even just an hour or two. The spa is beautiful-I enjoyed hot tea while sitting in the calm, beach-like, country lounge..I felt like I was at my family's beach-house on their porch. The staff was so helpful and the service was incredible.
Plus, I bought a gift certificate and got 50 % off the 2nd gift certificate- a nice promo they are doing for the holidays. I walked out with some FREE guess jewelry also just for coming in. Love this spa!
so good, I want the treatment – I had both heard about La Casa, and read about it on the internet. About 98% of the reviews were positive
A must have experience – I LOVE La Casa. I LOVE everything about it. I love the friendly staff. I love its staircase going up to the second floor
AVOID – This was a horrible experience. They tell you to arrive early so I got there 15 minutes early and just sat there waiting the entire time. I was scheduled for a colonic. They say it is an hour, but by the time all the blabbing is done the actual procedure is only about 40 minutes. My colonic therapist, gayatini kept playing with her phone and actually took a call. when she wasnt on the phone she was watching the clock. DONT GO HERE
Because La Casa requires each first-time colonic client to fill out a form before treatment, we ask clients to come early. It is essential that the therapist talks to the client to understand specific needs and challenges and to insure the client?s familiarity with the process. The time of the actual colonic process is 45-50 minutes and is determined by the body?s ability to release material. 5 minutes is allotted at the end to allow the client to use the bathroom.
saved my life – Dr Jane Goldberg is owner of this beautiful establishment and she helped me find a cure for my longterm illness that no doctor could figure out. Doctors had diagnosed me with lyme and was feeding me wrond medicine when all i needed was true detox with colonix, ozone and pulse therapy to get my health back on track.
The ozone therapy was life changing and her pulse therapy sessions made me feel like a brand new person.
This is more than just any spa its a true wellness center and they teach and sell only things that they beilive in!
Im so glad I found this place and thank you Dr Jane for saving my life!
My Life- Changing Experience at La Casa – After an emotional roller coaster of dealing with all of life’s heavy tasks, stresses, and feats, I constantly suffer from migraines and headaches on a daily basis. On a good day, I even tend to have a slight headache. I am accustomed to popping at least two Tylenol a day to “cure” my painful headaches, however, I’m well aware that my liver is working way too hard to metabolize the Tylenol, and eventually the Tylenol’s long term usage will cause damage to my liver. To be in pain short-term or long term? That is the question. I’ve always needed a short nap to recover from my migraine, but who honestly has time for a nap nowadays, especially in New York City where time is money.
I was a Premed student at the University of Texas, however, the thought of pursuing medicine was daunting to me since I’m not a huge believer in pharmaceutical drugs. The idea of “curing” a health problem with a pill always seemed too easy instead of diligently examining the lifestyle more closely and fully diagnosing the real problems at stake- such as diet, sleep patterns, etc. I decided that this career path wasn’t for me, so I moved to New York to pursue my artistic passions instead.
Fortunately, I met an amazingly inspiring and all-knowing woman, Dr. Jane Goldberg, who introduced an alternative, healthier lifestyle for me. At first, I was a skeptic, like most people would probably be when first thrown into a different dimension of an innovative medical practice. I informed Jane of my terrible migraines that I was experiencing, and she insisted that I try the CEM tech, a Russian handheld, therapy instrument which communicates directly with the cells in the body using millimeter wave technique. I figured that I had absolutely nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Furthermore, the woman has been accurate ever since I’ve met her; I would never accuse her of being wrong now since she’s always right on the money. This woman is a prime example of this modern type of healing technology’s success and results. I’ve never met a more energetic, lively, and intelligent woman at her age-65-yet she has the spirit and vigor of a 25 year old.
After 20 minutes of using the CEM tech, my migraine was miraculously gone. The pain was completely nonexistent. I’ve been using the CEM tech on a regular basis, and my migraines have dissipated. I hope to keep using the CEM tech, but I have a positive feeling that I’ll be migraine free soon.
I’m a firm believer now in the CEM tech. I’d recommend it to anyone who has doubts of any kind.
Total Relaxation – Today I had a phenomenal experience at La Casa Spa in New York with Dr. Goldberg. I scheduled an appointment for the Magnetic Pulse Therapy and I feel wonderful!. I believe the technologies that she is offering at La Casa Spa surpass conventional therapies, deliver rapid results on a cellular level and allow for profound changes to take place.
I experienced physical shock and trauma at a very early age and have spent several years in physical therapy to remove the imprint from cellular memory. As the tissue is deeply scarred in many ares of my system, it is challenging to get down to the root and release the anchors that are holding it in place.
To being with, she handed me a paddle like device called Onnetsu which sent far infra red deep into the tissues. While I could hold it is some areas without any discomfort at all, in the areas where I had old injuries, breaks, tears, sprains etc. I could only hold it for a few seconds. My conscious awareness was flooded with a full range of temperature sensations from luke warm to intense heat with just a shifting of this paddle over the surface of my skin.
One area in particular I experienced a 20% reduction in the size and overall area of a bony cyst. The change took place in less than 20 minutes of rubbing the device over the top and lifting it off, repeating and holding it for as long as possible with each pass. The shape of my hand has changed and I have greater flexibility in it already.
Next I experienced the magnetic pulse portion of the visit. It felt like I was sitting on a pulsing drum. Later she wrapped what looked like a long extention cord around my hips and turned up the pulse meter to the point where my system became overtaxed. Turning down the impulse brought a sense of calm and greater balance overall. I also noticed a greater range of motion at the end of this process.
What happened next was amazing! In her infinite wisdom, Dr. Goldberg brought out a little hand held device called Cem Tech and told me to hold the two discs in any area that I felt would benefit from some extra attention. I placed one disc at the base of my spine and the other on a very tight thigh muscle. In less than a minute, the muscles that previously had reached their threshold with the magnetic pulse therapy, dropped their long held defensive holding pattern, softened and within 5 minutes my entire belly region relaxed.
Within the next five minutes thrill bumps ran up and down my spine and spread out across my back. My heart and the muscles in my chest wall relaxed. I felt an old familiar "fearful feeling" suddenly leave my belly and a shift took place throughout my system. In place of the fearful feelings came a rush of warmth and joy.
Then she brought out a headband with crystals for me to experience. . More sensations of warmth and calmness spread from head to toe. More open feelings of joy in the body and peace in the mind.
Normally being in a busy place like the city is overwhelming to me and I tend to avoid crowded areas. Today I was able to cope with ease when I walked through the chaos of the city streets back to Grand Central. I was present in a more relaxed body, able to take in far more information without feeling overloaded.
The Cem Tech portion of the experience lasted 10 minutes and accrding to Dr. Goldberg that was just a "sample" of what this hand held device can do. I am really looking forward to my next session of Magnetic Pulse Therapy, Onnetsu followed up by an even larger sample of the Cem Tech at La Casa!
