Cori was born and raised in Tempe, AZ. She is a second generation ASU Sun Devil. Cori graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree and continued her education in alternative /holistic therapies. Cori has been doing colon hydrotherapy since 2004 and she has acquired an immense wealth of knowledge about healing the gut naturally by keeping the bowels moving. Over the many years of helping patients improve their health with colon hydrotherapy, Cori began to understand the deep correlation between gut health and buried emotions. So she went back to school to receive her certificate in hypnotherapy. By combining mind body meditation along with colon hydrotherapy Cori is able to greatly improve her patients overall wellness. Cori is thrilled to now being able to offer these treatments at Brio-Medical.
