What is colon hydrotherapy:
Colon Hydrotherapy, also know as colonics and colon irrigation, is a method of cleansing the colon of accumulated fecal matter and bacteria from the bowel. The colon is a muscle and colon hydrotherapy helps to stimulate and exercise this muscle. A gentle flow of warm purified water is introduced into the colon by the Angel of Water® (FDA approved medical device open system colonic device) featuring a sterile, disposable rectal nozzle and state-of-the-art ultraviolet water filtration. This activates peristaltic movement which stimulates peristalsis and hydrates.
• Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle process of putting water in the colon for the purpose of softening and eliminating waste
• Colon hydrotherapy is a safe process for colon cleansing
• Colon hydrotherapy is an accepted prep for colonoscopy
The session is performed with the utmost concern in modesty for the client. (It is beyond the scope of practice for the therapist to insert or assist in inserting the nozzle into the rectum**) The therapist will provide you with a sheet to cover yourself to maintain your privacy. The Angel of Water® Colonic Device is designed to be “self operating,” after the therapist instructs you on the proper use of the device, and any questions you may have are answered, you control the session. Many clients like to bring in a book to read or listen to soft music or meditate during the session.
Before Your Colonic:
The day before you colonic session drink plenty of water it works best when you hydrate and eat light.
Do not eat for 2 hours before the colon hydrotherapy session. If you have been constipated drinking herbal teas or taking OTC Magnesium Citrate before the session is helpful to soften fecal matter. Doing an enema at home to relieve constipation is also helpful and will make session easier.
