  • What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy (aka "Colonic" or "Colon Irrigation"), is the process of gently cleansing and exercising the large intestine with purified, temperature controlled water to remove waste and help restore its proper function. 

  • What should I do to prepare?

 

We recommend avoiding heavy food within 2 hours of your session and adequate hydration the day of and day before your appointment.

  • Is the process messy or uncomfortable?

The process is quite clean and comfortable. All waste is eliminated into the basin underneath the table during your session and you are in a reclined position the entire time. 

  • Will someone be in the room with me?

Our therapists are there to supervise your session and attend to any help you may need or questions you may have during your cleanse. This is YOUR cleanse! We simply supply the equipment, instructions and supervision to make it the most effective for you!

  • How many sessions do I need?

This depends on the health of a person's colon. Diet, lifestyle, medications, etc. all play a role in how much waste is in the body AND how you eliminate it. How often you cleanse is at your discretion but you can discuss a plan with your therapist at your session. 

  • Does it hurt?

No. The experience is actually quite calm and relaxing. Most guests play games on their phone or read books during their cleanse. 

  • Can I return to work after my session?

Yes. We allot time in the session to relieve yourself of remaining water and waste, so you can comfortably go about the rest of your day.

  • What should I do after my session?

You can eat immediately after your cleanse. However, you should refrain from eating red meat or pork and raw vegetables for 24-48 hours. This is to avoid gas and indigestion. Chicken, turkey, fish and steamed or cooked vegetables are ok to eat. 

  • What about probiotics and enzymes?

We always recommend getting probiotics and proper digestive enzymes from foods in your diet FIRST. If you feel like you're not getting enough, you can ask your therapist for recommendations on a list of food sources or supplements to support your digestive health. 

  • Can I cleanse if I'm on my period?

Yes. This is a great time to come in for a session as your body is already cleansing. It does not interfere with your treatment, we simply ask that you wear a tampon. 

  • Will I lose weight?

It is possible to lose weight during a productive cleanse if you eliminate a lot of solid waste. However, our colons absorb water so immediate weight loss is not an accurate way of measuring how beneficial a session is. 

  • Will my insurance cover Colon Hydrotherapy?

No. However if you have health benefits such as Flex Spending on a credit or debit card, you can use it as a standard form of payment during check out. 

  • Is this a "Colonoscopy"?

No. A colonoscopy is a medical procedure to examine the colon. This is a non-medical treatment for the sole purpose of helping to cleanse the colon.
