Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle and effective way of removing accumulated waste from the large intestine. By introducing a small amount of water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.
A colon hydrotherapy usually lasts about an hour. At Hertfordshire Colonics, we have a built-in multi-stage water filtration system, a state-of-the-art ultraviolet steriliser, one micron solid block carbon filter, individual disposables that eliminate any possible contamination to the client from a previous treatment and a lighted viewing chamber. All waste is discretely transported into the sewage without any offensive odour and without compromising the dignity of the client. After each colon hydrotherapy session, the unit is thoroughly cleaned and sterilised using hospital standard disinfectant in preparation for future use.
The warm purified water is let into the colon very slowly, when a slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water is gently released along with waste matter from the colon.
The process of filling water and releasing is typically repeated 3 to 5 times during the treatment. The therapist will also massage the abdominal area which will help in eliminating the waste through the colon.
Just one colon hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to having 20 or 30 regular bowel movements. Eliminations during subsequent therapy sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted faeces are dislodged from the colon walls.
The colon hydrotherapist will then see if you require additional sessions. After the session you could feel more energetic and vitalised.
