Colon Hydrotherapy

What is Colon Hydrotherapy 

Colon Hydrotherapy is a method of removing waste from the large intestines, without the use of bowel irritating drugs commonly found in enemas. During the session temperature controlled and filtered water is introduced into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. Sessions are non-invasive and generally  a comfortable experience for most people. Techniques utilized by the therapist allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colon's natural peristaltic action to release, the now, softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination (see the 6 R's below).  A healthy digestive tract helps and the removal of stuck on waste helps support a healthy immune system. 



What is a Closed Colonic 

Colonic Hydrotherapy has the ability to reach the full length of the large intestines ensuring a thorough cleanse resulting in maximum benefits to the overall health of the body and digestive system.

The session begins with client health history evaluation and education on our hydrotherapy options. The Closed system, which is also offered at The Gut Diva, is a FDA registered colon hydrotherapy device that is therapist guided. Which means a Certified Therapist is by your side throughout the entire session. During the session you will be lying on a therapy table, similar to a massage table, and you are draped with a gown for privacy during the entire session. You will be aided by a therapist on insertion of the rectal speculum and then placed on their back for the duration of the session.

Once the session begins and the temperature controlled and filtered water is introduced into the bowel, the client will begin to feel a sensation of bowel fullness along with an urgency to have a bowel movement. When the urgency to have a bowel movement becomes too strong to tolerate the client will indicate to the therapist to release. The therapist will then change settings on the device to release the waste from the client's colon.

During the release the therapist is using abdominal massage techniques to assist the evacuation of old, dried fecal matter, resulting in a more complete release during the 35 min session. Once the session time is up, the client will then be instructed on how to get up off the table and go release any remaining water out into the toilet.



What is an Open Colonic

The Open system, or LIBBE, is a FDA registered colonic device that offers you a more private session. This device is designed to deliver filtered, temperature, and pressure controlled water into the lower bowel. Working along with your body to assist in returning your elimination pathway to a healthier state. Unlike enemas, Colonic Hydrotherapy has the ability to reach the full length of the large intestines ensuring a thorough cleanse resulting in maximum benefits to the overall health if the body and digestive system.

The session begins with client education and demonsteation on how to properly recline on the therapy table (which is likened to a reclining commode). Your therapist will then instruct on how to introduce the water delivery tube comfortably into the rectum. Once the session begins and the water is flowing into the lower bowel and the client will begin to feel a sensation of bowel fullness along with an urgency to have a bowel movement. When the urgency to have a bowel movement becomes too strong to tolerate, the client will then push as if having a normal bowel movement on a toilet. The water tube remains in place during the entire session as the softened waste is now broken up and small enough to exit the body without disturbing the tube placement. A hand held massager is provided for the client to gently massage the abdomen during the session to offer comfort and encourage further release of waste matter The session lasts for 35 min and the therapist checks on the client periodically to ensure they are comfortable and having a productive session.
