Colonic FAQ's

Q. What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?

  • Colon Hydrotherapy is a washing out of impacted waste and gas from the Large Intestine with filtered water. Or simply put, it’s a bath for your colon!

Q. What takes place during a Colon Hydrotherapy session?

  • Our treatments take place in private, relaxing treatment rooms designed as bathrooms.
  • During the treatment you will be lying down on a cushioned table. A drape cloth will be supplied for your privacy.
  • We employ the Woods Gravity Centered Colonic Method. This means the water enters the intestine because the source is located above the level of your body, allowing the water to flow in and out without any pumps, motors or mechanical means. The natural peristaltic motion of the colon is initiated once the water enters it. You will not need to push or force the water in any way in order for it to exit your body. Relaxing your body with calm breathing is the best way to approach the session and your therapist will work closely with the rhythm of your body throughout the session.
  • The colon hydrotherapist is with you in the room throughout the entire session. The therapist will utilize abdominal massage to assist the flow and momentum of the session.

Q. Is Colonic Hydrotherapy painful?

  • You should NOT be in pain during the colonic. If the water is moving around a wall or pocket of gas or fecal impaction, then you may feel a bit crampy. Once the gas and waste matter is released, you will feel relief. In the days leading up to you your session, follow the dietary suggestions we offer, which will lessen/prevent any discomfort.

Q. How will I feel after the Colonic Hydrotherapy is over?

  • You should feel rejuvenated, happy, light, focused, and many people comment on how relaxed they feel. An increased sense of sight and smell is common. Lower back pain may be alleviated or lessened after one treatment.
  • If you feel less than great (IE: sluggish, sleepy, dizzy, headaches, etc.), this is a sign that your body is releasing toxins (acidity) and is working toward an optimal state of alkalinity. A follow-up session within one week or even sooner is not too soon.
