What is colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy (or colonics) is an age-old therapeutic treatment used to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Using techniques dating back as far as the ancient Egyptians, colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle & effective treatment used to cleanse toxic matter and tone the whole large intestine. Over time, the bowel may lose its tone and shape, resulting in a number of ailments most notably, poor bowel function. Up until the 1960’s, when prescription laxatives gained popularity, colonics were an accepted and well used practice in most nursing homes, hospitals and doctors offices.
A busy lifestyle and other imbalances can result in poor stimulation of the reflex to have a bowel movement. Using double purified water, disposable, sterile equipment and mild pressure we are able to stimulate a sluggish colon and rebuild the natural muscular contractions or “peristaltic squeeze”. Abdominal massage increases the effectiveness of the treatments. The total treatment requires just less than an hour.
Treatments are performed by certified therapists in a professional clinic setting. Your colon hydrotherapist understands the sensitive nature of the procedure and is trained to maintain a client’s dignity at all times. During the sessions, your therapist will take the time to discuss natural methods to improve digestion and elimination using nutrition and lifestyle.
