Frequently Asked Questions

Colonics, also known as Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Irrigation, is a method of removing waste from the colon without the use of drugs or laxatives. It hydrates the colon by infusing filtered water into the rectum, through a sterile rectal-disposable speculum. In a closed system there are two separate lines—water in, and waste out—to prevent any possible contamination. In the Open system, the sterile rectal-disposable speculum is one line of water in. The fecal matter is softened and loosened, which allows the peristalsis action to act. The fecal matter naturally moves throughout the colon and is evacuated. This process is naturally repeated several times during the session.

Colon Hydrotherapy is helpful with the following disorders: Constipation, Diarrhea, Flatulence, Headaches, Hemorrhoids, Intestinal parasites, Indigestion, Skin problems, and Weight problems.

Closed System: At the beginning of your session, you will be taken into the colon hydrotherapy room. Your therapist will do a thorough consult and walk you through the process, instructing you on how to insert the nozzle yourself and how the system works. To make sure you fully understand and feel safe. After giving you instructions, the therapist will begin the session facilitating the session, through a series of fills and releases. After 30- 40 mins the therapist will remove the speculum and leave the room so you may have privacy so you may release the excess fecal matter and water on the toilet.

Open System: At the beginning of your session, you will be taken into the colon hydrotherapy room. Your therapist will do a thorough consult and walk you through the process, instructing you on how to insert the nozzle yourself and how the system works. To make sure you fully understand and feel safe. After giving you instructions, the therapist will leave the room and you will disrobe from the waist down, sit on the system, insert the nozzle and cover from the waist down with the provided blanket. You will then call the therapist with the call button that is on the system and the therapist will begin the session. Water will flow from the nozzle into the colon causing the process of peristalsis to begin and you will naturally eliminate waste into the system. The therapist will make sure you are taken care of during the entire session while also allowing times of privacy.

Every person’s health goals are different, and the number of sessions depends on the individual. It takes more than one session to cleanse your system. After all, you have had the same colon since birth, and it has taken years to get your body in the state it is in now. Most people benefit from a series of six sessions. After your first session, the colon hydrotherapist will discuss what is recommended for you. Colonics can be used as part of any regular maintenance program.
