WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
You can expect your first session to be very relaxed and comfortable.
On your first visit you will be asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to you appointment to fill out an intake form. This provides information about your current health situation and to ensure you have no contraindications which would prevent you from receiving a colonic.
I will take you to the session room where we will go over your intake form and discuss your particular reasons for getting a colonic. At this time I will explain exactly what will take place during your session.
I will provide you with a pair of shorts or gown and a towel. I will leave you to change and upon my return I will ask you to lay on the table on your left side. At all times you are completely covered with a towel. I will, with your assistance, gently insert the speculum then attach the water and waste hose and turn the water on.
You will stay on your left side for a few minutes while the water starts to flow in and out. Once this is done I will ask you, while I hold the speculum, to turn onto your back. While on your back your knees will be bent and I will place some lovely wrapped hot rocks under your feed for comfort.
We are ready to begin.
Water is always flowing in and out. I will do abdominal massage which is very helpful in moving the waste out of the colon.
Your session will last 40-50 minutes.
During the session you should not experience any pain, however you may feel discomfort such as cramping. This is when water and gas meet, breathing into the discomfort rather than fighting it will help to ease you out of the moment.
I would like to speak about the importance of breathing during your session. Most of us are shallow breathers which doesn't allow much air to enter our lungs. We all know that breathing creates relaxation. That is why when we are upset we are told to take deep breaths. So during your session or even days before, practice your breathing where you open up the entire abdominal cavity. I call it breathing out and up. Open the tummy then up to the lungs. This will help you greatly during your session, particularly during those moments when waste is moving and allow it to move through and out.
I have essential oils on hand that when inhaled will help to relax you during the session. There is also music playing during the session.
PURPOSE OF GETTING A COLONIC
Removing waste material, which has remained in the colon for some time. (impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, parasites, worms)
This material is quite toxic and these poisons can re-enter the blood stream making one feel tired, ill or weak. Impacted material impairs the colons ability to absorb minerals and bacteria producing vitamins. A buildup of material in the colon can make it sluggish bowel movements, slow transit times, constipation
Signs of toxic material in colon
Sinus problems, headaches, backaches, constipation, fatigue, bad breath, body odor, irritability, confusion, skin blemishes, abdominal gas, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, low energy, bloating, diarrhea, sciatic pain, and so forth.
Toxicity is not just found in the colon. Toxic material is found throughout the body. Fat tissue, joints, arteries, muscles, liver, gallbladder, lungs, kidneys, pores of the skin. Colonics can eliminate large quantities of toxic waste affecting the condition of the entire body.
Colonics have been found to be the most effective way of removing toxins quickly and easily.
A COLONIC ACCOMPLISHES THE FOLLOWING
Cleanses the colon - toxic material is removed so it can no longer inhibit assimilation and elimination. Long time debris build up is gently removed. Once the colon is cleaned your colon can begin to work as it was meant too.
It exercises the colon – a buildup of toxic debris can weaken the colon muscles and impairs its function. Colonics help to improve peristaltic movement. This helps to speed up the transit time of fecal material once the colon muscles have been tones, strengthened and rejuvenated.
Reshapes the colon – the colons shape can alter its shape and structure when problem conditions exist. The gentle action of the water, along with massage and experience colon hydro therapist can help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste, narrowing constrictions and eventually enabling the colon to regain its shape.
Stimulates reflex points – every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colonic can stimulate these points effecting the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues, glands in a beneficial way.
Hydrates the body - Our bodies are made up of 60-70 % water and with the use of pure water in the colonic our bodies are able to absorb much needed clean pure water to hydrate the cells of the body so that they can function at a higher rate as well as dilute the already present toxins within the body.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF A COLONIC
A greater awareness of what is going on in the body.
The solar plexus is the emotional center of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left uncompleted, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus, which affects all organs of the area, including your colon. The ongoing tightening of the colon muscle results in diminished movements of fecal material through the colon, which is experience as constipation. Not only do colonics help to alleviate the constipation they can assist you in recognizing and releasing the stored emotions, causing the problem, In effect colonics assist you in creating a fully holistic view of your body’s functioning leading to a better quality of life.
