What does colon hydrotherapy feel like?
It is similar to what you feel like when you have a bowel movement naturally. If you resist instead of relaxing it can be more uncomfortable. Colon hydrotherapist are skilled at helping you to relax. Through breathing and gentle palpation of the abdomen. Most people actually enjoy the session and are pleased with how they feel afterwards.I personally felt lighter and energetic afterwards.During a session, the colon muscles will contract considerably more than they would in one movement. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency. The body handles this process naturally with no need of pushing. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easy to tolerate.
How many times will I need to come?
Initially, you should have at least 2-4 sessions close in sequence. (usually several days in a row.)The first one helps to soften and loosen up the hardened fecal matter in the colon and the second through fourth visits help to move out impacted waste throughout the large intestine. Everyone is different. It is difficult to answer how many you will need. It depends on your personal commitment to wellbeing and what you are hoping to achieve from your colon hydrotherapy sessions. I personally started with 8 sessions. I did 8 consecutive weeks, one a week.
How long does a session last?
Will I be able to go back to work, shop, exercise afterwards? I always schedule an hour for sessions. This will leave time for any paperwork, discussing health history, and bathroom use. You will typically be on the exam table between 35-45 minutes and finish on the toilet until you feel settled. I would suggest light activity after a session. Especially after your first time. Many people do all of the activities listed above with no issue afterwards.
Can I eat the day of my colon hydrotherapy session?
Yes you can eat the day of your session prior to coming. I recommend a light diet that day and drinking lots of water.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use a FDA approved Dotolo Toxygen Model BSC-UV Colon Hydrotherapy closed system.
