Frequently Asked Questions
What is the colon?
The colon is the last part of the digestive system in most vertebrates; it extracts water and salt from solid wastes before they are eliminated from the body, and is the site in which flora-aided (largely bacteria) fermentation of unabsorbed material occurs. Unlike the small intestine, the colon does not play a major role in absorption of foods and nutrients. However, the colon does absorb water, potassium and some fat soluble vitamins.
What is a colonic?
A colonic is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. Colonics gently cleanse and exercise the colon by filling and emptying the colon with filtered and temperature- regulated water. The waste is then softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session. Colonics are best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. The current technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice and the colon therapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines.
Is a colonic painful or embarrassing?
The idea of a colonic often reminds people of the odor and mess of an enema, but it is actually quite different. After a gentle self-insertion of a small tube, sterilized surgical tubing carries water in and waste out in a gently pressurized system. You are fully covered during a colonic, except for the brief insertion of the tube. There may be some slight discomfort if you pass gas, old waste matter or have an extremely congested colon.

Can I work directly after having a colon hydrotherapy session?
Certainly. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
Does it hurt?
No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.
Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colon hydro therapy session have any effect on the visit?
No. In fact, it’s usually a good time to receive a session, since your body is already cleansing. Your flow has no effect on the success of the session.
How much does the session cost, and how long does a session take?
The cost of a session is $80.00. The procedure is about 45 minutes, but you should plan a total of visit of one hour in duration. A sequence of three sessions can be purchased for $210.00 (done within a week period) Check out our Pricing page.
What is constipation?
Constipation is any form of congestion and is usually accompanied by dehydration. It extends to the cellular level. One bowel movement a day is a sign of constipation and incomplete elimination is a form of constipation. Some symptoms can be overweight, fatigue, irritability, mental confusion, bloating, gas, indigestion, lethargy, headaches, migraines, earaches, sinus drainage, allergies, cellulite, anxiety, depression, pessimism, whining, unsatisfied hunger, poor circulation. Have I named a familiar problem yet?
A colon hydro therapy session begins to hydrate the system and break up the impacted and dehydrated fecal, mucous, and other waste materials that layer the walls of the intestine. Once again, the intestines are capable of receiving and disposing of waste from the body, stopping the backup and re-absorption of toxic materials. Assimilation of nutrients improves. The liver and kidneys are relieved.
How many colonics do I need?
A famous colon researcher Dr. Walker, has stated that a series of approximately 15 colonics can rebuild and rejuvenate the bowel and detoxify the body (with a healthy diet and proper living habits). Of course, the number of colonics will depend on the individual’s goals in achieving good health. Some clients have informed us of attaining the most success when receiving 3 colonics within 1 week period.
Who can’t have a colonic done?
If there is rectal bleeding present, colon or abdominal surgery done within a year, liver or kidney pregnant women, dialysis patients, abdominal hernia present, or if under cardiac distress.
