What Happens During A Colon Hydrotherapy Session?
Colon Hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of water
into the colon via the rectum. No chemicals or drugs are involved and
the entire therapy is both relaxing and effective.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete the Health Questionaire located in at the reception
area. Or PRINT Health Questionaire ahead of time, complete and bring with you to save time. When your therapist is ready she will come to greet you and take
you through into our therapy room. You will then go into the bathroom
to empty your bladder and undress into a gown. Once back in the treatment
room you will lie on a custom treatment table in complete comfort. Your
therapist will then explain how the equipment works and the treatment
From the hydrotherapy equipment, a small disposable speculum is gently
inserted into the rectum through which warm filtered water passes into
the colon. These are closed systems so waste is discretely transported
into the drain line without offensive odor and without comprising the
dignity of the individual. You are able to see what your colon is eliminating
through a lighted glass tube connected to the machine. Modern state-of-the-art
colon hydrotherapy units employ multi-stage water purification systems,
individual disposables which eliminate any possible contamination to the
client. After each therapy session, the unit is thoroughly cleansed and
disinfected in preparation for future use.
A skilled certified colon hydrotherapist
who will sit next to you throughout your treatment could use several fills
and releases of water, as well as light massage techniques, to dislodge
toxic waste matter adhering to the walls of the colon. The dislodged fecal
impactions are then gently washed away though the system's waste disposal
hose. During the therapy, water temperature and pressure will be monitored
by the therapist and can be varied to stimulate peristalsis (muscular
contraction) in the colon. This is very important to help the atonic (sluggish)
Properly administered, Colon Hydrotherapy is not addictive. It encourages
the restoration of the colon's natural function by strengthening peristalsis.
Each colon hydrotherapy session lasts approximately 45 minutes and one
should allow at least one hour per office visit. Initially, a series of
at least four separate therapy sessions is usually recommended, to achieve
the maximum cleansing benefit. This helps to eliminate fecal matter which
may have been lodged in the colon for weeks, months, or even years. With
colon hydrotherapy the entire large intestine is cleansed and the therapeutic
benefits are much greater than those achieved with an enema. Enema cleansings
are limited to the rectum area and due to the body's natural wish to expel,
are limited in duration. Over-the-counter suppositories stimulate expulsion
of the contents of the rectum, but contribute to dehydration which may
exacerbate a constipated condition.
During a typical colon hydrotherapy session, gallons of water will be
transported into and out of the colon. Using a combination of abdominal
massage (if consented) and if required reflexology and breathing techniques,
the colon therapist is often able to promote elimination of a volume of
toxic waste, which would not otherwise be possible through individual
Just one colon hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to having
many regular bowel movements. Eliminations during subsequent therapy sessions
can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted feces are dislodged
from the colon walls.
The colon hydrotherapist will carefully evaluate
the client's progress during their session to determine if additional
sessions would be beneficial. After a therapy session, many people report
a feeling of heightened energy, an increased sense of well-being and renewed
Almost certainly your colon will be cleaner. You may experience
easier eliminations and your overall health status should be improved.
Colon hydrotherapy provides a proven way to cleanse your colon, and thereby
to increase your chances of maintaining optimal health. But maintaining
good health is an ongoing process which requires diligence.
initial series of colon hydrotherapy sessions, you may be well advised
to seek a colon hydrotherapy every four to six weeks. In this way, you
can maintain the benefits achieved during your first colon hydrotherapy
sessions, as well as maintain a strong functioning colon. Your colon therapist
should be able to suggest a reasonable schedule depending on your personal
health status and desire for further therapy.
