How Do I Prepare For My Treatment?

What Should I Expect During My Colonics Treatment?
At your first visit you will be asked to fill out a consultation form. Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete these forms. You and your colon therapist will then discuss you current health concerns and the goals of your colonics treatment. You will be guided through the colonics procedure. Step by step expectations will be given throughout the treatment. Your comfort and dignity are of upmost importance during your session.
Is It Safe?
Yes. Colon Hydrotherapy is safe, especially when the treatment is preformed by a certified Colon Therapist. The treatment room is sterilized between each client. All tubing and proctors are sterilized and individually wrapped for one time use. The water that enters the colon has previously gone through an effective filtration process, removing any harmful components.
Is It Painful?
No. Your colonic treatment is not painful. Individuals with an unhealthy colon may feel slight discomfort, but that will improve with each consecutive treatment. Most clients find that they feel a better sense of wellbeing after a colonics treatment.
Is Having A Colonic Embarrassing?
No. Your colon therapist understands your desire to keep your dignity intact. Your are covered at all times, and all waste matter is flowing out of the tubing and directly into a waste drain. There is no mess or odour.
