Colon Hydrotherapy Overview

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonics or colonic irrigation is a natural treatment that has been used to flush out large intestine. In recent years, this technique has become very popular for cleansing of the large bowel system. Colon hydrotherapy provides the benefit of how our colon works by cleaning it from accumulated toxins and waste products that interrupt the digestion.

Keep in mind that colonic hydrotherapy does not include any pharmaceuticals or invasive procedures to assist in bowel movement. It assists the way your gastrointestinal tract works in a natural way.

Colon Hydrotherapy vs Enema

Colon Hydrotherapy is different from enemas. While enemas can be done at home and usually is a one-time infusion with up to two liters of water, colonics are done through multiple infusions and must be done by a certified hydrotherapists using specific equipment. When a patient is given a colonic hydrotherapy, therapists use up to 16 gallons of triple-filtered warm water to ensure the full cleansing of the large intestine. The procedure takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and the full cleanse continues with increased bowel movements within the first few hours after the procedure is done. Sometimes, optional coffee or chlorophyll implant is used for better toxic removal and assisting a liver with a toxic load.

What are Types of Colon Hydrotherapies?

Currently, there are two officially recognized types of colonics – Gravity and Pressure (aka Machine) Colon Hydrotherapies. Both types of colon hydrotherapies are effective and provide a natural, gentle and relaxing experience of colon cleansing. In our wellness center we use “closed” techniques allowing waste materials go directly to a sewage line.

Colonics provided in our New York City Wellness Center assist the body ridding the colon of toxin build-up with the natural forces (gravity type) or pressure (machine) controlled (machine type). Both, gravity colon hydrotherapy and pressure colonics, are equally effective in eliminating toxins and waste. Some people prefer the gravity colonics method, while others prefer the machine method. Some have tried both and didn’t notice any advantage of one over the other. They switch back and forth for variety sake. After all, it really comes down to your personal connection with the therapist.

Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy

Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy uses the natural flow of water from the water tank under gravity into the body. Using the latest in water filtration technology, our custom-built treatment rooms use triple-ultra-purified water to dissolve and carry wastes away from the large intestine. Our technicians are certified and additionally trained in-house before joining our team.

Machine Colon Hydrotherapy

While Gravity Colonics was the original method for cleansing of a large intestine, Machine method was designed to automate the process. While both techniques apply the same principles while cleaning large intestine, machine has two advantages that Gravity colonics does not. In the machine method, water temperature is controlled by the machine, so a technician doesn’t have to check the temperature constantly. Water pressure flaw can be set slightly higher for those individuals who required to do so. But by the end of a day, the results are absolutely the same.
