Perfect before colonoscopy
Why have a colonic?
Colon hydrotherapy helps you restore and maintain health by targeting its very root: the digestive system.
After years of exposure to unbalanced diet, industrial foods and environmental pollution, the colon (large intestine) can get gradually clogged and weakened by unwanted waste.
This in turn can cause multiple health problems, ranging from simple loss of energy to more concerning health conditions.
Colon hydrotherapy consists in gently washing the colon using warm water to flush out accumulated waste, rehydrate, and exercise the bowel.
It's combined with a soothing abdominal massage to reach the colon along its full length.
Hygienic equipment, disposable supplies and filtered water are used to cleanse the colon with no fuss and no mess.
And everyone enjoys the fresh, light feeling and enhanced energy levels they experience after treatment.

Has your doctor ordered a colonoscopy? A colonic is the best, most trouble-free way to prepare for it. Contact us to make an appointment.
1. What does a colonic feel like?
You may feel varying sensations of fullness and movement as water gently flows in your abdomen during treatment.
2. Does it hurt?
Not at all. Your therapist closely monitors the process to ensure that you remain comfortable at all times.
The colon may occasionally contract during treatment, producing a mild tightening sensation which passes quickly.
3. Is it safe?
Completely. Modern equipment constantly maintains water temperature and pressure within safe limits. CCHCC standards also require that a single-use, disposable speculum be used for each treatment.
Your therapist will also ask if you have one of the rare pre-exisiting conditions for which colon hydrotherapy is contraindicated.
4. How many treatments do I need?
That all depends on your health condition, current diet, specific objectives and response to treatment.
A typical program involves a personalized consultation and three colonics, with clients returning twice a year (or more) for maintenance and enjoyment.
Your therapist will help you determine the course of treatment most suited to your needs.
5. Does a colonic wash away 'good bacteria'?
The amount of good bacteria that remains in today's average, polluted bowel is actually quite low, compared to a healthy bowel.
By 'cleaning up' one's internal environment, a colonic works precisely to create the conditions whereby the intestinal flora and healthy bacteria can restore themselves to their optimal state and number.
Your therapist will provide nutritional advice and post-treatment probiotic supplements to help promptly restore your flora to its best possible condition.
6. How do I prepare for a colonic?
Proper preparation is very important to get the most benefits from your colonic. It's recommended that you avoid heavy, fatty or processed foods prior to treatment. Eat light, favoring fibre-rich foods such as fresh greens and fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Your therapist will ask about your diet and give you more detailed advice and tips for preparation.
