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. During therapy the client lies on a custom treatment
table in complete comfort. From the hydrotherapy equipment, a small disposable
speculum is gently inserted into the rectum... through which warm filtered water
passes into the colon.
Modern state-of-the-art colon hydrotherapy units employ multi-stage water purification systems, individual disposables which eliminate any possible contamination to the client from a previous treatment and a lighted viewing chamber.
These are closed systems... so waste is discretely transported into the drain line without offensive odor and without comprising the dignity of the individual. After each therapy session, the unit is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected in preparation for future use.
A skilled certified colon hydrotherapist will 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) colon.
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 three 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, and to keep the client properly hydrated.
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), reflexology, breathing instruction and relaxation techniques... the colon hydrotherapist is often able to promote elimination of a volume of toxic waste, which would not otherwise be possible through individual efforts.
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 vitality.
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...
After the initial series of colon hydrotherapy sessions, you may be well advised to seek a colon hydrotherapy every three to six months. 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.
