Colon Hydrotherapy

A colonic irrigation, also known as colon hydrotherapy or colon lavage, is a sterile internal bath that cleanses the large intestine of accumulated waste. Unlike an enema it does not require the retention of fluid, so there is no discomfort or pressure, just the gentle flow of water in and out of the colon.

During the treatment, a light abdominal massage stimulates the colon to recover its natural shape and tone and helps normalize peristalsis, the colon’s natural movement. Colon hydrotherapy as been used for thousands of years: it was first described by the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus in 1500 B.C. and it was prescribed by Hippocrates as a remedy for fever. Up until about 1920, doctors and chiropractors had colonic equipment in their offices. Since then there has been revived interest in using natural methods for healing the body. The use of colon hydrotherapy is regaining popularity.

What happens during a Colonic?
Health Spa uses the “closed” system that is always operated by the therapist. Water and waste materials are enclosed in tubing and instrumentation and disposed of through a closed drain system. The procedure is safe and clean, and there is nothing to offend the senses. At the start of the session, a sterile disposable tube is gently inserted into the rectum. During the hour long treatment session, the therapist slowly fills and empties the colon a number of times with filtered, temperature-controlled water.

The Benefits
Colonics offer relief from a variety of disturbances by purifying the colon of gas, poisons, and stagnated and putrefied waste. Some of the problems that may be improved by colon cleansing are lethargy, fatigue, interrupted sleep, gas, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, stomach cramps, PMS, headaches, lower back pain, irritability, skin disorders, and even cold hands and feet. After a treatment, your sense of well-being is often dramatically enhanced. You may feel lighter and more energetic, and your body’s ability to assimilate food and fight disease can be vastly improved.

Yvonne's Testimonial

I’ve completed a series of liver/gall bladder flushes over a two year period.

I can’t thank Sharon enough for suggesting that I read "The Amazing Liver/Gall Bladder Cleanse" book by Andreas Moritz.  I followed the instructions exactly in his book and was amazed how painless it is.   I didn't even expect any stones to come out and was just doing it to clean my liver and as a preventative measure. I’m amazed that I’ve released over 2000 stones since I started the flushes in 2008. I plan to continue flushing until I have two consecutive flushes with nine or less stones. Once I achieve that I’ll go on the suggested maintenance program that the author recommends.

The results that I’ve received from the flushes are a clear mind, clear skin, my aches and pains are gone, blood pressure and cholesterol readings are normal and my energy level has improved enormously.
