Carolyn Berry, owner of Clean Colonic, has always been passionate about helping people. But it wasn’t until her own health issues and years of suffering that she turned to colonics for the answer to unlocking the mystery of her own health – leading her down the path to becoming a successful business owner today.
Berry is the proud owner of four Clean Colonic locations and has been in business since 2016. Her business locations can be found in Tempe, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, and Glendale. Prior to owning her own company, Berry, a competitive women’s doubles sand volleyball player, was a massage therapist for 15 years. She then took a corporate job managing spas in a fitness center for nearly eight years where she developed systems and helped grow the business.
After leaving that role, she wrote a book titled “I’m Happy. How Did I Get Here?” that included a program to lead people from chaos to happiness. And while happy, Berry was struggling with life-impacting health issues.
“I had a lot of food allergies and was allergic to almost all foods. For example, I ate cheese pizza once and had to go to the ER! In fact, I had to walk around with liquid Benadryl in case my stomach swelled up,” she recalls. “I also had a lot of problems with my uterus. I had cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, and was diagnosed with adenomyosis. My doctor recommended that I get a hysterectomy because I had been suffering with these issues for more than 20 years. Instead, I opted to look for other solutions.”
“A friend suggested that I get a colonic. Even though I didn’t think they were connected, I was desperate to find some relief,” Berry continues. “After seven sessions, the very next month I had no issues with my uterus – no cramps or pain. My stomach went down and, when I went back to the doctor, I had no more cysts and the adenomyosis was gone. Today, I have no more problems with my cycle. I also now have no food allergies and can eat anything. In fact, my favorite thing on the menu to try is truffle mac and cheese!”
Because of this amazing, life changing experience, Berry took a new career direction and became dedicated to helping people through colon hydrotherapy.
“I never thought I’d be in this business, let alone have multiple locations,” she says. “But it’s very satisfying to educate people on other ways to assist their body; not just for constipation and weight loss, but for other issues they may have. More and more research is coming out that everything starts in the gut — and I believe it.”
Berry opened her first location in Tempe because the California native was living in the area at the time. “I started with just one device in one room,” she says. But a short two years later, she was so busy that she made the decision to move into her own clinic, bought two more devices, and was then approached with an opportunity to open a Phoenix/Scottsdale location. “Two months later, and with three more devices, I opened our second location on Tatum and Thunderbird.”
The location in Fountain Hills came next, followed by the Glendale location. Beyond these successes, Berry’s zeal for assisting others hasn’t waned. She recently supported two individuals in opening their own colonic clinics, helping them craft business plans and establish websites. Their ventures turned out so triumphant that they fully devoted themselves to their new businesses.
With this spirit, and being the owner of multiple successful locations, Berry decided to offer franchising for Clean Colonic. She recognizes the limitless potential of the brand to grow further. By seeking business partners to expand this concept around the country, she believes more people can benefit from the holistic wellness it offers.
Colonics have been touted by many prominent figures, such as world-renowned motivational speaker Anthony Robbins, who advocates for colon cleansing and detoxification.
“You could also take routes such as a nutritional cleanse, colon hydrotherapy, or enemas. Though not always recommended, these processes remove old fecal matter from the body by gently injecting and extracting water to and from the colon. When body waste is stuck inside of your internal systems, it can cause problems by releasing toxins back into your body,” says Robbins.
Indeed, over the past year, Berry’s outreach has also extended globally. She’s traveled internationally many times to introduce the concept globally, including to Namale Resort & Spa in Fiji to provide guests cleansing colonics in tandem with wellness seminars on multiple trips.
For those experiencing gastrointestinal issues or even the merely curious, Berry advocates for the wonders of hydrotherapy. “It is life changing,” she attests.
Berry remains committed to maintaining the highest standards in her services, ensuring safety, cleanliness, and comfort for every client. Her dedication, expertise, and genuine care make Clean Colonic a trustworthy destination for those seeking to enhance their well-being.
