The purpose of getting a colonic is to remove all waste and gas from the large bowel. This is encouraged by gently irrigating the colon with temperature-controlled, gravity fed, purified water. The cleansing process takes approximately one hour, followed by 10 minutes of dream time at the end of the session. The process is gentle and usually pain free. However, mild cramping may occur during the session due to large pockets of gas and impaction of waste moving through the colon. This discomfort is only temporary and usually occurs with clients who are suffering with chronic constipation, bowel impaction, and excessive gas.
Colon therapy is also known as colon hydrotherapy and colon irrigation. The medical term is high enema. It is a safe gentle infusion of filtered, temperature controlled water into the large intestine (colon) by gravity.
Constipation is a very common problem caused by 8 or more contributing factors.
- Poor, unhealthy diet
- Not drinking enough water
- Lack of fiber in diet
- Not going to the restroom every time you feel the urge to, thus training your colon to be constipated
- Prescription medicines
- Lack of exercise
- Parasite Infestation
And sometimes people are just born with lazy bowels. If the issue of constipation is not addressed and taken seriously then many other health issues can arise, such as diverticulitis and colon cancer. Always be proactive by eating right, drinking plenty of water, abstaining from things that do not promote good health, such as smoking, drinking alcohol and drugs, etc.

Can I have a session when I am menstruating?
Yes, it is perfectly fine. In fact, some of my female clients specifically schedule their two appointments at this time each month. They have informed me that they don’t cramp as much (removing the tampon before they start the session and replacing it at the end). When booking your appointment, please let me know if this applies to you.
Supplies Used in a Colon Hydrotherapy Session
The colon cleansing nozzles are prescription only. They come individually sealed in their own package and are completely sterile. I always wait to open the container in the presence of each client to ensure sterilization. As you can tell from this photo, the nozzle is quite small, no larger than an ink pen.
You insert the nozzle only about three inches. I demonstrate how this simple procedure is done.
An individual, sterile package of white petroleum USP coats the end of the cleansing nozzle. Once you remove the petroleum package, the lubricant remains on the end, which allows the nozzle to be inserted easily. You never have to be concerned about over-inserting the nozzle because it only sticks out past the elimination compartment about 3.5 inches.
This entire process is completely safe and extremely efficient in eliminating the waste from the large bowel (colon).
