The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.
Who we are
We are a team of health professionals who are passionate about what we do and about the health of our clients.
What sets us apart is that we have all experienced ill health prior to our chosen careers, and we use these personal experiences to both fuel our passion to help other people, and also as a way to understand and empathise with our clients as they are going through their own journey to health.
Each of us have our own strengths and skill set, but we all share the same holistic view of health. We believe that health isn’t achieved by just doing one specific thing, but through a change in diet and lifestyle, and honouring the connection between mind and body.

After struggling for years with crippling anxiety, GIT issues and way too many rounds of antibiotics, finding Colonic Hydrotherapy was a massive breakthrough towards Joh’s personal health and wellbeing. She had such incredible results and was so keen to share her wisdom, she decided to study and become certified as a Colonic Hydrotherapist.
Joh is extremely passionate about helping people get healthy and well and brings to the clinic an abundance of determination, attention to detail and most importantly empathy as she’s been on a similar journey.
I was first introduced to Colon Hydrotherapy when searching for answers to health issues I’d been experiencing for many years. Chronic constipation, food intolerances, parasites, adult acne, gas, bloating and low mood set me on a mission to heal my body.
The first lesson for me was ‘food is medicine’ – I adopted nutrition and exercise principles into my life that made a big difference.
I then completed a Diploma of Nutritional Medicine (ACNT Sydney) and through my studies learned what an essential player the gut is to physical & mental health and overall wellbeing. But even when eating well and exercising, I still battled with chronic constipation. It was finding Colonic Hydrotherapy that was the missing piece of the health puzzle for me.
Clearing away old toxicity from my body has taken my health to a whole new level. It’s made such a huge difference to my life that I knew I wanted to support others on their gut health journey. I’ve been having colonics myself for over 6 years, and completed my Colon Hydrotherapy training in 2019.
A decade ago, after the birth of my third child, my body was depleted in every way
I launched myself into learning about holistic movement and lifestyle. I was amazed at the benefits of complementary health modalities and how they could positively impact your life.
It was a cancer diagnosis that led me to discover colonics.
Keen to help my body detox from heavy pharmaceuticals, I ensured colonics were a crucial part of my health regime and healing plan.
I fast became a colonic advocate and, pursuing a career in colon hydrotherapy, evolved very organically.

Deb studied Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney and has been in private practice on the Northern Beaches for over 12 years. Deb’s love for movement and the body started in her teens as a full-time dance student in Sydney and then in Melbourne with the Australian Ballet School.
Deb has completed many post-grad courses, but the ConnectTherapy™ approach by Dr LJ Lee re-shaped the way she sees the body. In this approach, finding the driver of the non-optimal movement and pain is most important. Treatment is shaped on restoring this function and re-training. Deb is also a Pilates Practitioner and teaches on Polestar Rehab Education courses in Australia.
Currently, her work is split across three domains: private and confidential sessions with clients at pH Clinic; facilitating groups at one of Sydney’s leading private hospitals; and, as the founder of Future Culture, she supports corporate businesses and other organisations with Wellness and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP).

pH Team Testimonials
"I had my first experience with colonic hydrotherapy with the lovely Johanna. I had 3 sessions as suggested for my first time to get the best outcome. I can honestly say this has changed my life. Johanna was supportive, communicative and gentle the entire time. This has helped my bloating, stomach pains, naughty food cravings, no signs of premenstrual dysphoric disorder and little to no cramps. My anxiety is nowhere to be seen and I have even increased my productivity at work with no afternoon slump. Would highly recommend!!"
My first experience with pH Clinic was amazing! I booked for a hydrotherapy and infrared sauna package. I would have been a mess of nerves but Samantha talked me through it the whole time and made me feel 100% comfortable. Now I know that gut health is complex, super important and I’m ready to keep doing the work to reverse all those years of damage. I didn’t think twice before booking my next appointment! Will gladly drive 45 mins to this cosy little store because these girls are the BEST.
"I didn’t realise how rundown I was feeling on a daily basis until I started to feel better. I didn’t realise how toxic I was! The education I received from Nicola was fascinating and logical. I must say I was nervous at first but the process was easy and clean. Not embarrassing at all. The benefits outweigh any embarrassment factor! Colonics are must for everyone! Thank you for giving me back my spark!"
