I’m so happy you’re here finding out if this treatment is right for you. Let’s first talk about what a colonic is and how it’s done. Colon Hydrotherapy is the holistic practice of gently infusing water into the large intestine. The large intestine is also called the COLON. There is nothing added to the water, it is triple filtered and purified right in our office. As the water enters the colon, it starts to break down the impacted waste to loosen it up so that it will easily release from your body through a completely enclosed tube. I use an advanced state of the art closed system which means everything is completely contained and odorless.
The water is warm and gently flows into the body slowly. The client is lying comfortably on a treatment table. During the fill, there is minor discomfort as the water passes through the contents of the colon. This discomfort passes as the water continues to soak and hydrate the colon. Eventually this will break down the impacted toxins for safe and gentle removal from the elimination tube and through natural peristalsis. This is repeated several times and includes a thorough abdominal massage that concentrates on pressure points for easier elimination. Special digestive essential oils are applied on the abdomen and acupressure points are utilized to aid in effective release. It is a restorative, rejuvenating procedure, calming and relaxing. You will leave with a feeling of lightness and inner bliss.
If you have the desire to start changing your eating habits and begin and healthier lifestyle, colon hydrotherapy can kick start this process and help you stay on track. It can actually help you lose unwanted pounds immediately and promotes the desire to eat cleaner and care about what you put into your body. Colonics are perfect for anyone looking for weight loss, cleansing, detoxing and the desire to drop pounds in one day.
The colon is a tube of muscle which needs to be toned to stay in shape just like any muscle in your body. If you suffer from chronic constipation, chances are your colon has atrophied and needs to be exercised. A poorly functioning colon leads to constipation, bloating, headaches, fatigue, dull skin, weight gain, bad breath and poor digestion.
The gastrointestinal tract contains a large portion of the immune system, which is there to prevent harmful substances from entering the body. If your colon becomes inflamed or swollen this increases the opportunity for harmful substances like neurotoxins and microbes to enter the body.
It is important to promote the friendly bowel flora to ensure efficient digestion. Having a colon hydrotherapy treatment allows the opportunity for friendly flora to repopulate.
Inflammation, intestinal permeability and disruption of intestinal microflora are linked with mood disorders like depression, panic attacks, anxiety, ADD, arthritis, allergies, eczema and asthma.
Clients who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, parasites and chronic fatigue have also benefitted from colon hydrotherapy treatments.
During fasting, detox or cleansing it is a good idea and advantageous to clear the colon with a colon hydrotherapy treatment as this helps to reduce or avoid symptoms of detoxification such as headaches, tiredness, aches and pains. Our clinic also welcomes clients who have been requested by their health practitioner to have a colon hydrotherapy treatment prior to a colonoscopy.
