Colon Hydrotherapy

What is the purpose of Colon Hydrotherapy?

 The goals of Colon Hydrotherapy are to hydrate the colon, remove toxins from the body, make more room for the other organs, and tone the large intestines.  Colon Hydrotherapy is a preventative tool, is not a cure for illness or substitute for medicine.  90% of disease begins in the bowel.  Cleansing the body of toxins regularly can have long term health benefits.  We clean our body every day by taking a shower.  It is just as important to clean the toxins from the bowel on a regular basis.   

History of Colon Cleansing

 Historical records indicate that cleansing the bowel is a practice that began 4,000 years ago.  The oldest medical texts, known as Hindu Vedas, describe colon cleansing as the practice of using enemas and laxatives to remove excess waste and toxins from the bowels.  Hippocrates, King Louis XI, King Louis XIII,  Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of Kellogg's Corn Flake fame) and Edgar Cayce were supporters of colon cleansing.  Colon Hydrotherapy is extremely popular in Europe and is also practiced widely among Scandinavians.  People can carry 4-40 pounds of waste in their large intestines.  When Elvis died his colon weighed 45 pounds! 


 Physicians, Colon Therapists, and recipients of Colon Hydrotherapy have reported that Colonic therapy can help relieve the following conditions:     
Irritability, Depression, Nervousness, Nausea, Protruding Abdomen, Bad Breath, Coated Tongue, Body Odor, Weight Problems, Constipation, Brittle Hair / Nails, Poor Digestion, Abdominal Discomfort, Flatulence, Lower Back Pain, Menstrual Problems and PMS.    During a colonic, water hydrates old hardened waste, when the waste becomes soft, it is loosened from the colon walls.  The old toxic waste is able to naturally move out of the body.  Impacted waste in the colon can cause abdominal distention, discomfort, bloating, indigestion, fatigue and gas.       

What will happen during my session?

 When you arrive your therapist will give you some routine paperwork to complete.  Your therapist will ask you some questions about your lifestyle and health history.  You will have a chance to ask your therapist any questions you may have.  If this is your first session at our office, your therapist will give you information about the body, the colon hydrotherapy equiptment, and tell you what is going to happen during the session.  Your therapist will walk you through the entire session.  During the session, you will be assisted in breathing exercises and relaxation techniques.  During the session you will fill and release 3-15 times.  You will be in communication with your therapist the entire time.  Your therapist will make sure you have a good colonic session and that you feel comfortable and relaxed.  When the session is over you will use the restroom for a final release and get dressed.  Many clients say Aqua Body Cleansing made their colonic experience easy, relaxing and comfortable.   

Who can benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy?

 Most everyone can benefit from colon cleansing.
If you feel 'toxic', a colonic will help you feel relieved.  Feeling toxic can have any of the following symptoms; feeling sluggish or tired, foggy thinking, depression, gas, bloating, indigestion, back pain, skin problems, body odor, bad breath, and allergies.

If you have digestive problems, you can benifit from colonics. 

If you have eaten too much junk food, or had too much alcohol and caffeine, cleansing your colon can be beneficial.  If you are in recovery, doing a cleanse, or have had an eating disorder you will benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy. 

Colon Hydrotherapy is a popular practice among Hollywood Stars. Many celebrities have attributed their slim figures to regular colon hydrotherapy sessions 

 Is there anyone who should not get a colonic?
Yes.  If someone has had recent abdominal surgery, is pregnant, has uncontrolled high blood pressure, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis or a hernia, should not get a colonic.  If you have had these conditions in the past, but they have been resolved, you may get a colonic. 

 Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my session? 

 Please do not eat or drink 60 minutes before your session.  All other prepration is optional.

A few days before your session increase your water intake. 
The day before your appointment please eat mainly fruits and vegetables.  This will allow you to get the maximin benifit from your colonic session.  The day before your colonic please do not eat; bread, corn, rice, pasta, products containing gluten, crackers, popcorn, meat including; chicken, turkey, and fish and dairy products.  Quinoa is a natural grain and you can eat it the day before your session.  

Be sure to eat light the morning of your appointment.  Please do not drink carbonated beverages the day of your session.  You do not need to fast.  Fasting is unneccessary.

Please call us if you have any questions about the preparation instructions.

Please get directions to the office before you leave for your appointment.  If we are in session, we will not be able to answer the phone.  If you have never been to the office before please leave plenty of time to find the location.  Please see the services page for maps and location specific information.  


Your 1st Appointment

Your 1st appointment takes about 75 minutes.  All new patients must book a 1st appointment because they have to complete paperwork and the first experience takes slightly longer than a follow up appointment,  You will have a 45 minute colonic session with Rebecca.  During that time she will walk you through the process step-by-step and make sure you have a wonderful experience.  People say she makes them comfortable with the process, that shes gentle and easy to talk to.  She will talk to you about your digestion, lifestyle and habits, and provide you with suggestions about reaching your individual health goals.  A recommendation will be made for the frequency of booking follow up sessions or a series of appointments.     

A Series of Appointments
