What are colonics?
Colonics, also known as Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Irrigation, is a method of removing waste from the colon without the use of drugs or laxatives. Introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural intestinal movement. This process is naturally repeated several times during the session.

What is a colonic session like?
At the beginning of your session you will be taken into the colon hydrotherapy room. Your therapist will walk you through the process, instructing you on how to insert the nozzle yourself and how the system works. After giving you instructions the therapist will leave the room and you will disrobe from the waist down, sit on the system, insert the nozzle and cover from the waist down with the provided blanket. You will then call the therapist with the call button that is on the system and the therapist will begin the session. Water will flow from the nozzle into the colon causing the process of peristalsis to begin and you will naturally eliminate waste into the system. The therapist will make sure you are taken care of during the entire session while also allowing times of privacy.
How many colonic sessions does a person need?
Every person’s goals are different, and the number of sessions depends on the individual. Colonics can be used as part of any regular maintenance program.
