Alexandra Defacio is the founder and owner of Green Star Wellness. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, she came to the United States twenty years ago. She was first interested in alternative medicine when she developed a thyroid imbalance in her late twenties. Rather than seeking western medicine, she began looking into holistic treatments that would help to heal her body in the long term, at which point she discovered colon hydrotherapy.



With her transformation, she decided to become a licensed practitioner to assist other people seeking healing through detoxification of the colon and started working in clinics throughout New York City.


Though Alexandra found her calling in her early twenties, she was intuitive since she was a little girl, but an awakening during a spiritual experience in Peru in 2012 set her on a new path. She began channeling sounds and chanting in light languages that carry healing frequencies and are embossed with love and light.



Alexandra has a unique ability to intuitively sense the vibration of the body of her clients which in turn assists in guiding her treatment. She tailors her approach to the needs she senses, translating this energy into movements that help to release old patterns in the memory cells of the physical body and a subtle energy field around it. The treatments are normally directed at overcoming health or emotional issues, thus leading clients to truly encounter their higher selves.


With more than 18 years of experience, she has clients from all over the world and her nurturing nature is a combination of warmth and professionalism.

"This was my first colonic and the process with Alexandra was absolutely incredible! I had never done anything like this previously, but Alexandra's beautifully warm and inviting presence made me feel safe confiding in her the issues I was having with my body.”
