What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic, colon irrigation or high enema, is a natural method of removing waste from the lower part of the large intestine without the use of drugs. It is a gentle way of instilling filtered water through a small (pencil-size), sterile, disposable rectal tube (or speculum). As the water softens, the waste matter is loosened resulting in elimination through natural peristalsis (describes the wave-like muscular action the colon uses). This process is repeated throughout the session. It is cleansing, yet clean and soothing.
Why Should the Colon Be Cleansed?
Besides the colon being the “sewer system” of the body as it is referred to, a healthy colon absorbs water and hosts good bacteria that produce vitamins, such as K and some B vitamins. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.
The colon is a reflex organ with electrical connections to all your body parts and systems. Waste material builds up over a long period of time the colon starts to weaken, breakdown and become toxic. The body reacts by slowing down other functions and becomes sluggish.
Some of the effects seen are: coated tongue, fetid breath, sallow complexion, abnormal body odor, dark circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails and hair, sagging posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, chronic headaches, irritability, nervousness, nausea, depression, asthma, and backaches.
What Does the Session Involve?
First and foremost, our clients are treated with dignity and respect. Most clothing can be left on and a cloth is draped around the lower body, or a gown may be worn to ensure modesty. We strive to maintain a calm, relaxing environment with meditation music and aromatherapy scented candles, oils and lotions. A session is a tranquil experience for most and the pace is controlled by the client’s holding and releasing of water.
After the therapist instructs the client to ease the rectal nozzle in, water is gently instilled. Our water is purified with an Ultra Violet Water Purification System and is monitored and safely regulated by the Certified Colon Hydrotherapist for water flow, pressure and temperature. Aromatherapy warmed pillows are used for relaxation as oils and lotions are utilized to stimulate pressure-points in the arms, hands, legs and feet. The LIBBE device is comfortable and may be operated in privacy for those who prefer solitude, the therapist may enhance the session with proper techniques to promote peristaltic action and facilitate a more therapeutic release. There is no odor!
