Colon hydrotherapy serves to detoxify the body. It is a natural, gentle irrigation of the colon, cleansing it of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing of purified water by passive gravity. The procedure also exercises the colon muscles, reshaping it, and stimulates reflex points, similar to reflexology. The procedure is relatively painless, and completely private, in a comfortable treatment room with only the client and a professional therapist. Dignity and respect of the client is maintained at all times. Afterwards, one usually feels lighter and enjoys an improved sense of well being. Colonics can assist you in creating a fully holistic view of your body’s functioning, leading to a better quality of life.
