What happens in a colonic treatment?
The client relaxes comfortably on a massage table as a small sterile disposal rectal tube or speculum is gently inserted into the anus. The speculum has a separate water and waste line that is attached to the hydrotherapy equipment.
Just one colon hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to having 20-30 regular bowel movements. Eliminations during subsequent therapy sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted waste is cleansed from the colon walls.
During your colon hydrotherapy session your therapist will give you an abdominal massage, this increases peristalsis (the muscular action of the colon to push waste through), this then loosens any impactions and may move some gas.
Good peristalsis action is the key to a well functioning colon; therefore the massage is an excellent tool together with the warm water to encourage this muscular action.
Colon Hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxatives is not habit forming and actually improves the tone of the colon.
As well as generally having a greater sense of cleanliness, most people feel energised, lighter and amazingly relaxed. There is no problem with returning to work immediately after treatment.
