What is colon hydrotherapy?

Your colon is your large intestine. It’s responsible for absorbing water and salt from your body’s waste. Bacteria present within your colon break waste down before it exits your body.

Colon hydrotherapy is a treatment that gently cleanses your colon to remove any lingering waste. The treatment uses warm, filtered water and sterile equipment to ensure a safe experience.

Colon hydrotherapy, also called colonics, has been used for thousands of years in cultures worldwide. The Greeks, Chinese, and Egyptians all used colon hydrotherapy. In modern medicine, colonics were commonly performed in doctors’ offices and hospital settings until the 1930s, when laxatives and purgatives began to offer a less expensive alternative.

What are the benefits of colon hydrotherapy?

Today, many people choose to add colon hydrotherapy to their ongoing health and wellness routines. Some of the benefits of this safe and gentle treatment include:

  • Stimulation of the nerve and muscle functions in the bowel
  • Enhanced energy
  • Reduced symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
  • Detoxification
  • Enhanced immune function

What happens during colon hydrotherapy sessions?

If you’ve never tried colon hydrotherapy before, having some reservations about the process is perfectly normal. The Kingsway Medispa & Wellness Center practitioners understand the importance of patient education and strive to answer any questions you have before your treatment.

When you arrive for colon hydrotherapy, you change into a treatment garment and relax on the treatment table. Your practitioner inserts the speculum about an inch and a half into your rectum, which only takes seconds.

The hydrotherapy system then flushes your colon with warm water, using carefully controlled and gentle pressure. You can expect to feel a sensation of fullness as the water enters, then a relaxing sensation as the water and waste exit your body into the treatment tubing.

There is no pain during treatments, and you’ll have access to a private bathroom before and after your session. Perhaps the best referral for colon hydrotherapy is that many people who try the treatment are so pleased with their results that they return for multiple additional sessions.
