Certified Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon Hydrotherapy is also known as Colonic, Colon Irrigation, Colon Therapy, High Enema and Colon Cleansing. The most common form of Colon Hydrotherapy is the enema. A colonic is an extended form of enema.

Enema use dated back to ancient Egypt where water was infused into the rectum by using reeds from the Nile. Enema is mentioned in many ancient cultures including the Sumerians, Chinese, Hindus, Greeks and Romans.

Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs.  Colon Hydrotherapy rejuvenates every cell of the body.

Colonics release toxins, cleanse the blood, empower the immune system, and restore the pH balance in the body. It hydrates the body; bodily fluids are able to carry nutrients and waste more effectively, these fluids include lymph, blood, mucus, intercellular fluid, and extracellular fluid.

Additionally, Colon Hydrotherapy softens and loosens waste. It is easier for the bowel to evacuate softened, hydrated waste than a hard, dehydrated mass.  Next it Tones the Bowels, where water enters the bowel, softening and loosening waste, creating the reflux for evacuation.

How Is Colonic Cleansing Done?

The colon evacuates through normal peristalsis.  This may be repeated several times during a session, thereby exercising the muscles that make up the colon.

Colon size in volume is approximately 1 gallon. This varies depending on the size and condition of the individual. It does not take the exact amount of water the colon holds in order to cleanse the whole colon.

By introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. Peristalsis is waves of movement sweeping waste through and out of the colon.

The colon is filled, and then emptied through natural peristalsis several times throughout the session. The water flows in only, and then is released on request by the client with a feeling of fullness in the abdomen or on the judgment of the therapist. Then water and waste material can exit.

Sessions last approximately 45 minutes. The gentle passage of water is controlled by the therapist operating the colon hydrotherapy equipment. The speculum, a disposable plastic tube inserted into the rectum, has two hoses attached to it outside of the body. The smaller hose is for the inflow of water into the colon and the larger hose is for waste and water outflow from the colon.

The waste goes out the speculum into the disposable waste line through to the illuminated glass viewing tube. This is the point of opportunity to observe what comes out of the intestines.

The equipment is plumbed into the sewer system after it passes through the viewing tube.  This is called a closed system. All waste is contained entirely within the system so there is no mess or unpleasant odors or exposed bacterial waste.

The water is filtered through two separate water filters to sterilize and purify the water. The speculum and hoses are disposable and for one time use only. All work is done face up and the client is covered at all times to ensure modesty while the therapist is massaging the abdomen to loosen and assist the direction of waste movement.
