about us…

Jill Simons

If you told me 15 years ago that I was going to be a colon hydrotherapist for a living, I wouldn’t have believed it.  In fact, when I had my first colonic it was only to get my dear friend, Ariel Policano, who is now an amazing brilliant ND, to get off my back.  Ariel was a colon hydrotherapist here in Portland and she seemed to think that colonics were the answer to any evils of the world.  She did all but beg me to give it a try.

In my mind’s eye, I didn’t see the need.  I had a healthy gut:  no constipation or bloating, I seemed to tolerate whatever food came my way, and felt mostly good.  And honestly, I wasn’t that eager to put a tube in my butt.  BUT after much much cajoling and convincing, I gave colonics a try.

I’m not going to lie to you.  I didn’t love the feel of my first  colonic.  It felt odd to have a tube in my bum.  I felt some crampiness and discomfort in my session.  It was the feeling that I got after my session that was life changing.  I walked out of my colonic feeling more energized and clearer headed than I had in years.  As I continued having colonics, I found that I had more energy to exercise and think about how to nourish myself through food.  Colonics made me feel great and continue to 14 years later.

Before I became a colon hydrotherapist I worked with young people, first as a teacher and then as a counselor.  I got very involved in the domestic violence movement and in supporting people of all ages to have the life they want to be living.

Colon hydrotherapy is not that much different from counseling.  Most people don’t have colonics unless they are ready for their life to change in some way.  And we, as your colon hydrotherapists, get the gift of getting to support you in making the changes you need to make to feel good in this world!

I’ve continually made choices in my life that have brought me to both authenticity and connection. My background includes pediatric nursing, palliative care and hospice. For 10 years, I  worked with amazing women who were  escaping prostitution and/or being harmed in the sex industry.

13 years ago,while working as an advocate and counselor, I began feeling exhausted and disconnected. I did all the right things in being examined and tested by Drs, taking supplements,etc. but to no avail. As a counselor, it was not an option to disconnect from myself, so I  began speaking to folks outside of traditional medicine.

I had a friend who was becoming a Naturopath and was a Colon Hydrotherapist, who after much cajoling, convinced me to have a colonic. I was nervous my 1st session, but walking out after, I felt a shift happening. In continuing colonic sessions,  they turned out to be life changing.

At the same time, Jill, my now business partner at All’s Well, was working with children at the same agency,began her journey with colonics. Together, we were so enthralled, that we got on the Internet and found a school in Texas. After completing this program and the appropriate testing, we both became certified by the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy. In returning to Portland, we were drawn to the brilliant practitioners at Circle Healthcare Clinic.

For 12 years now, people coming to All’s Well That Ends Well for a colonic, have entrusted me to the highest degree of authentic connection, and I feel completely privileged and honored.
