About Us

We are passionate about improving this industry.

The Canadian Association for Colon Therapists (C-ACT)
was incorporated in Ontario as a not-for-profit organization in 2014.

We are a group of therapists committed to the health and well-being of all people. We are passionate about working together to seek the support of a Regulatory Board to improve this industry and implement Canada-wide standards.  Regulation protects our integrity and will help us grow our industry and be recognized as a legitimate, alternative health resource.

We encourage therapists to join this effort for a collective benefit.

We are not a watch-dog organization.


What does Regulation do for us?  As an example, during the past 2 years battling this Pandemic, our businesses were not allowed to operate.  In the first stage of re-opening, Massage Therapists (RMT’s) were allowed to re-open under the guidance of their Regulatory Board.

The Health Department lists us as “Personal Services” along with tattoo parlors, esthetics, hair and nail salons – not as an accredited, alternative health service.

Colon Therapists were non-existent during the lockdown as we have no Regulatory Board to lobby for us. No “business category”, no Regulatory Board, no support.

Jody Movat is no stranger to the colon health field – in fact, she made her entrance into the world of alternative health care at the age of 19 when she began her personal colonic journey.

As a result of her own childhood allergies, skin, and gut issues, Jody began her adventure to better health and quality of life through colonics and continued health education.
