For those who want to understand the hydrotherapy process, I’ve outlined what you can expect with each colonic session.
To begin with, the therapist will suggest a trip to the restroom to empty your bladder. You will be covered with a towel and/or a blanket, reclining on a padded table. At the foot of the table is a stainless steel and glass wall unit displaying a temperature gauge, pressure gauge and an absorption tube. A speculum is gently inserted approximately two inches into the rectum. There are two tubes extending from the speculum to the unit. Pressure-regulated and multi-filtered water flows through one of the two tubes, the inflow tube, into the speculum infusing from there into the large intestine.
The practitioner closely monitors the temperature and pressure of the water paying particular attention to minimizing your stress. During each cycle of filling and emptying, the hydrotherapist will gently massage the abdomen to enhance a release. Warm water (96-102F) releases feces and relaxes the colon while cool eater (86-92F) releases gas and mucous. We have noticed that alternating temperatures tone the colon. Waste material is expelled through the outflow tube. To endure maximum safety, all tubes and speculum are disposable.
The session is usually one hour while the process itself takes 35-45 minutes.
