How Does A Colonic Work?

Colon Hydrotherapy (a.k.a. colonic, colon cleansing and colonic irrigation) is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs, for the purpose of removing waste, stimulating peristalsis, and hydrating the colon.

Infusing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste is repeated several times.

The removal of waste encourages better colon function and elimination. Often used by people who experience constipation, the specialized equipment ensures you an easy, odorless, and safe way of eliminating. Colon hydrotherapy is one of the most effective ways of cleansing the lower intestinal tract (colon) and detoxifying the overall system. 

Hydration of the colon is extremely important. When we fail to hydrate our bodies, the colon is dehydrated as well as the waste inside. Dehydrated waste is difficult to move through the bowel and pass through the rectum. A colonic rehydrates stagnant waste, breaking it apart and flushing it out in addition to hydrating the colon itself. A hydrated colon is an effective colon. Eighty percent of all constipation cases are the result of dehydration. Clients may experience relief after having a colonic and report an overall sense of well being.

Other Reasons To Get A Colonic...

 Many of our clients receive the treatments during a period of lifestyle change or as a preventive measure.


*Stomach problems: constipation, carbohydrate indigestion, diarrhea, gas, bloat, hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diverticulitis, colitis, parasites, skin conditions such as psoriasis, shingles, and eczema, inability to lose weight, and scar tissue and adhesions from surgery.


*Pain: abdominal pain, continuous headaches and migraines, back or shoulder pain, aching joints, gout.


*Immune issues like: allergies, immune-compromised with lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue, Epstein-Barre, candida, infections, colds or influenza.


*Emotional issues: which they feel are physiologically rooted in their intestines so they do a combination of Colon Hydro therapy treatments and Theta Healing sessions.


*Improves metabolism

What Colonics Do For The Colon...

*Cleanse the Colon: Toxins built up over a long period are gently removed in a series of treatments. Your colon can begin to co-operate again as it was intended. In this sense, a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.


*Exercise the Colon Muscles: The build-up of toxins weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material. Receiving regular colonics is like taking your colon to the gym.


*Stimulate Reflex Points in the Colon: The colon is connected to every system and organ in the body by reflex points. The colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way. Thus creating overall well-being and health in the body.

*Hydrate the Whole Body: Water is absorbed into the body through the colon which increases the volume of blood. The circulation of the blood is increased, resulting in a greater bathing of the cells. This dilutes the toxins and flushes them out; relieving toxemia and uremia; and increasing elimination both through the kidneys, and the skin as well as the bowels. All this generally assists the cardiovascular and circulatory systems to be more efficient.
