What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonics, is a gentle internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of toxic waste, excess gas, and accumulated fecal matter. 

Using a high quality filtration system, purified water gently fills the colon. This infusion of warm water hydrates the colon and loosens impacted fecal matter, thus allowing it to leave the body without causing or aggravating hemorrhoids. The system is designed to assist in the body’s natural ability to eliminate waste and effectively carry it away. Colon hydrotherapy helps to release toxins, stimulates the immune system, and assists in restoring proper pH balance in the body.

One colonic can leave you feeling a bit lighter and clear-headed and jump-start you into choosing a change in lifestyle that will greatly benefit your gut health.

HOW THE HEALTH OF OUR COLON
EFFECTS OUR TOTAL HEALTH

A disposable speculum is gently inserted into the rectum which allows it to introduce warm filtered water into the colon. Water flow is always under direct control of the practitioner. As water enters the colon, it causes a feeling of fullness for a short amount of time, followed by a feeling of release as the colon is emptied. The speculum allows for the safe entrance of water via a small water tube and release of waste and toxins through the evacuation tube. As the water flows out of the colon, the practitioner gently massages the abdomen to help the colon release its contents. It is possible to see the expelled waste matter when it passes through a special viewing window in the evacuation tube. This process is repeated several times and generally takes 30 to 45 minutes. 

 

Each client is assured a private, comfortable experience throughout the session. The client is well covered and their modesty is given top priority during the procedure. The waste is always discreetly drained away and releases no mess or odors.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY?

People receive colon hydrotherapy for a variety of personal and holistic wellness reasons. Some of the most common benefits of colon hydrotherapy are ridding the body of excess waste material. Toxins from this waste buildup re-enter and circulate in the blood stream leaving an individual feeling ill, tired or weak. Impacted materials impair the colons ability to assimilate minerals and good bacteria. Additionally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation. The colon is an important organ of elimination and vital in detoxifying the body as a whole.

A SERIES OF COLONICS CAN:

Give you a feeling of lightness, clarity, and wellbeing, physically, emotionally, and mentally.

 

Relieve you from gas, bloating and helps resolve constipation.

 

Exercises the colon wall, toning and restoring the colon’s natural peristalsis. This improves the elimination of fecal matter during a bowel movement.

 

Supports the ecosystem’s micro-flora by removing unbalanced bacteria. Correcting the balance of friendly/non-friendly bacteria internally.

 

Clear out the old matter increasing the absorption of nutrients through the colon wall leaving you with clearer brighter skin.

 

Decrease the overall risk of colon disease with regular colonic maintenance.

 

Supports overall health by removing toxicity in the body thus strengthening the immune system and assists the detox process during a fast or cleanse.  

 

Wash away parasites, mucus, dead cells, and old hardened fecal matter that has been there for longer than you ever wanted it to be. 

 

Support weight loss, hydration, and alkalinity.

HOW THE HEALTH OF OUR COLON EFFECTS OUR TOTAL HEALTH

Colon hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poison, gas, and accumulated fecal matter. Unlike an enema, it does not involve the retention of water. There is no discomfort, no internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the colon. At the same time, an abdominal massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover its natural shape, tone, and peristaltic wave action.
