Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy Session (45-60 mins)
One Colonic Session $140
HOW TO PREPARE
Here are some recommendations to help you get the most out of your session, not requirements.
Few days prior and right after your colonic session:
On the day of your session you should come on empty stomach, stop eating at least 3,5 hours leading up to your appointment and stop drinking about 1,5 hours before your appointment. You'll feel a lot more comfortable if you'll avoid a full stomach and bladder. It's important to stay hydrated pre and post colonic session.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long is the session?
One session takes about 45 mins to an hour, after that you will finish up on a toilet releasing the remaining water
How many sessions do I need?
Frequency depends on your intentions and health concerns. If you are in good health and are interested in colonic for detox and optimum health, the recommendation for colon hygiene is every change of a season - 3-4 times a year. If you have any digestive issues, issues with skin, weight, inflammation, low energy or if you are doing a Cleanse right now - you most likely will need a series of colonics - that could be once a week for 3-6 weeks, every 2 weeks or every month depending on the issue. I will be able to judge when is the best next time for you to come after our session. As you feel the results, you will not need to do colonics that often.
Does it hurt?
No, Gravity method colonics are known for being gentle on the body. As your body releases matter and gas you may feel some cramping or pressure for a few seconds, that might be uncomfortable but not painful. Most clients feel comfortable and at ease during the treatment. I highly recommend to prepare for your session, following the dietary suggestions I offer will help you to avoid any discomfort.
Will colonic wash out all my good bacteria?
NO, there is no evidence for that and it is a myth. I have been getting colonics regularly for over 6 years and have been seeing clients who have been doing colonics for over 20 years and still have healthy digestion and regular bowel movements, that would be impossible if the bacteria in the colon was “washed out”. Your heathy bacteria can only survive in a proper, clean, healthy environment and colonic combined with a healthy diet plays a huge role in it.
How do I feel after?
You feel lighter and brighter! Feel free to go about you day. You should feel empty, light, relieved, rejuvenated, energized, happy. Increased sense of sight is very common. Lower back pain, headaches, puffyness often relieved after one treatment. If you feel less than great (sluggish, sleepy, dizzy, headaches, etc.), this is a sign that there is more work to do and you need to come back for a follow-up session within a week and be careful with food choices.
Who should not come in for colonic?
Most people can benefit from colonic, but there are some contradictions. You should consul with your doctor if you have conditions listed below:
Acute Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, abdominal pain
Severe liver, kidney or heart disease conditions
Epilepsy or psychological disorders
Recent heat attack
Recent surgery (last 6 month)
Rectal or abdominal tumor
Can I just take a laxative?
Laxatives (like senna or cassia), are often marketed as being “natural”, but overtime, these types of laxatives damage the function of your intestinal walls and decrease the ability of your muscles to contract on their own. Too often I get clients in my practice who have been on laxatives for years and their colon is so weak and loose, it can not function anymore so now these people HAVE TO use something to have a bowel movement. Unlike laxatives, colonic is actually strengthening your colon muscle. During the session your colon hydrotherapist is massaging your colon in a specific way to stimulate your natural peristalsis, we call it “a gym for your colon”, overtime the muscle gets stronger and clients report more frequent easy-to-pass bowel movements. Thats the part of the “therapy” in colon hydrotherapy.
