Frequently Asked Questions

Colon hydrotherapy is a restorative and painless therapy that is effective and relaxing. It is not a procedure. The goal is to provide filtered, pure water into the body in an environment with soft music and diffused essential oils. The client lies on a comfortable massage table. The therapist gently inserts a well lubricated small speculum into the rectum. The speculum is smaller than a normal bowel movement. The speculum is attached to a soft hose that carries the waste out into a drain, so there is no odor. The slow flow of water flows in and then out, as is comfortable for the client.  As the waste softens and leaves the body it makes room for the next fill of water to soften the next area with waste. This closed system requires a knowledgeable therapist that can coach the client thru the session. This gives opportunity for questions and education about the colon and health. It also allows the therapist to gently massage the abdomen, during the elimination part of the outflow cycle, to help the colon release effectively.  Many things affect our colon whether it is eating habits, elimination patterns, stress, emotions and/or hydration. In a trusting environment these things can be shared, as the client prefers, so that the therapist is aware and can understand their personal needs.
