What is it and how can I
benefit from it?
Colon Hydrothrerapy is a safe, therapeutic
treatment used to promote optimal health throughout the entire
body. This gentle internal bath helps to reduce gas, bloating and
toxic build up in the colon (large intestine). A cleansed colon
will not only improve the function of the digestive tract, but also
provide enhanced health to other areas of the body. Major organ
systems such as the skin, lungs, liver and kidneys can all benefit
from this treatment. Also, the immune system becomes revitalized,
creating increased energy levels and rejuvenating well-being.

How many treatments should I
The number of sessions needed will vary
depending on the individual. For the average person on a standard
diet, a starting series of four to six treatments will provide a
thorough cleansing. Follow up treatments can help to maintain
results and strengthen colon muscles. Because the treatment is an
exercise for your colon, you will notice increased efficiency in
your elimination as a result.

effective. Soft music plays in the background in a private and

Q & A
Is it true that colon hydrotherapy could do harm to my intestinal
flora and valuable nutrients?
Quite the contrary! Having colonics is an opportunity to clear out
old fermenting waste which can be the culprit of symptoms such as
gas, bloating and even constipation or diarrhea. The truth is that
washing out of fermenting waste in the large intestine, actually
increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in
a clean environment that has been washed free of putrefaction and
harmful bacteria. Each time you clean out the putrefying material a
more favorable environment is created in your gut, this is essential
for the healthy flora to multiply. Valuable nutrients can be
absorbed more easily resulting in more abundant health overall.
I have heard of taking
probiotics for better digestion. Is this recommended?
YES, absolutely! Good quality probiotics are very supportive in
further restoring and maintaining that optimal bacterial balance in
the digestive tract. Because it is our job as colon therapists to
offer you the most successful results possible, at our clinic we
dispense a few different high grade probiotic supplements. Upon your
first visit your therapist will make a recommendation for you based
on the information gathered throughout your treatment. This product
should be taken over the course of your series of colon hydrotherapy
treatments. Each capsule delivers millions of micro organisms of
friendly bacteria and are highly beneficial to take on a regular
basis to promote overall health and to maintain your treatment
I am committed to my
health and wellness and I want to try colonics for the first time.
I have heard that having one stand alone treatment generally will
not complete the process or offer the optimal results that I am
after. Can you explain this?
After providing this service to our clients for 10 years plus, we
are thoroughly convinced that it is in ones best interest to commit
to a “series” of treatments right from the start. The colon is a
long and accordion-like structure up to 5-7 feet in length with
three different sections. This requires more than one session to
fully hydrate and clear out.
At our clinic we offer special series pricing - See our Fee Schedule
section under colonics.
What is a “series” of
colonics and why does it yield the best results?
A “series” is a grouping of colonic treatments booked close together
as a method of achieving your ultimate health and wellness
potential! This therapy requires a cumulative approach, each
session builds on the one prior. The treatments are booked close
together so that the bowel can remain more hydrated than usual to
soften material that may be dehydrated and stuck. With repetition
the body generally becomes more relaxed and able to “let go” with
each successive treatment, this is partly due to the positive
effects colon hydrotherapy can have on the nervous system. Often
times the clients may become aware of healing on many different
After your initial series, it is up to you and your therapist to
determine what will be an appropriate after care plan for you. This
is very individual and depends on a number of factors including
lifestyle, diet, medications, and your body’s own ability to
maintain your results. We always do our best to offer you tips and
tools to implement on your own to maintain lasting results.
Are colonics addictive or
do the cause dependency ?
No, the goal is actually the opposite. Colonics are used to
rehabilitate the smooth muscle tissue of the bowel, hence the term
colon hydro”therapy”. A series will eliminate accumulated
waste that poses as a burden on the colon. It is easier for a colon
to function efficiently after a colonic than it did before.
Colonics encourage peristalsis, the natural rhythmic muscle
contractions of the colon. The smooth muscle tissue becomes
strengthened and toned, it is like exercise for your insides ! Most
clients report that they are more “regular” after completing a few
colon hydrotherapy treatments.
