Also known as a “colonic” or “high colonic,” “Colon Lavage,” or “colonic irrigation,” Colonic Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with water.
A Colonic Hydrotherapy session consists of more than simply flushing the bowel. It involves a thorough, individual assessment and evaluation of the client’s symptoms, taking into account diet and environmental influences. Based on this information, the appropriate therapeutic procedures are discussed and executed. The goal of the therapy is to bring about efficient elimination of waste and the restoration of tissue and organ function. Recommendations are given, and clients learn to be responsible for their own health.
Waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time (i.e., impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.) poses several problems. This material contains toxins which can circulate in the bloodstream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and absorb nutrients. A build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation and the results of these disorders.
