Woods Gravity Method

Why Gravity & Not a Machine?

Joyce Rockwood has chosen the Woods Method because she believes in the gentle power of gravity. As a practicing therapist since 1997, she has found gravity-centered colonics to deliver the best results. She encourage you to do your own comparison.

The Simplicity and Ease of Gravity:

  • The Gravity Method is the original method of Colon Hydrotherapy. You will find that your body is more receptive to the gentle flow of water via natural means.
  • During the session, your colon directs the treatment in unison with the water.
  • Most people, who are new to colonics, feel that the process is much easier and more relaxing than they anticipate.

The Mechanics:

  • There is a 5-gallon tank of water suspended 3 feet above your body, which will be filled several times during the session.
  • As the water enters your body it will simultaneously exit, thus allowing you to feel an emphasis on the exit rather than the input of water.
  • Your elimination is contained in a closed tube, and you will be covered with a drape sheet for privacy. Your colonic hydrotherapist is trained to support you and help you feel comfortable during the session.

The Instrument:

  • The instrument, which is lubricated and gently inserted to the rectum, is called a speculum.
  • It is made of stainless steel and it is completely sterilized via a three–step process.
  • Surgical tubing (made of firm rubber material) conveys water into the body, and water and waste out of the body directly into the plumbing. This tubing is changed after each client.

The Colonic Hydrotherapist:

  • Your colonic hydrotherapist will be in tune with your body throughout the treatment via abdominal massage, and a gentle manual pulsing of the tube that carries the water out of your body.
  • We are happy to assist your process and discuss information regarding food combining, vegetable juicing, exercise, and answering any questions you have regarding the work.
  • You will find your colonic hydrotherapist not only to be skilled but also be a fitting example of the lifestyle we share with you. You will see the benefits of the work exemplified by us as soon as you walk through the door.

How The Speculums Are Sterilized: A Three-Step Process

  • 1st: The speculums are scrubbed and rinsed with soap and hot water.
  • 2nd: The instruments are soaked in a powerful, disinfecting solution of 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide.
  • 3rd: They are placed into a Medical-Grade autoclave for heat sterilization at over 350 degrees..

Additional Care:

  • If you have any further questions that were not answered here, you will have an opportunity to address them before your session begins.
  • Remember, it is common to be a bit nervous before your first colonic. Joyce makes the process comfortable, and will set your mind at ease.
