What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

“Colon Hydrotherapy, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered, temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.

Colon hydrotherapy is best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.”

International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy

How does it work?

Your first appointment will be an hour and a half.

When you arrive, you’ll fill out a health questionnaire and we’ll go over your health history with you, we’ll explain how the session works and answer your questions before your colonic. Your follow up sessions will be about an hour.

During a session, a small amount of warm filtered water is introduced into the colon by means of a lubricated disposable and sterile nozzle. After a series of fills and releases, the warm water begins to soften the fecal matter, relax the walls of the colon and eventually waste and water exit your colon through a tube. Everything is contained within the tubing, there is no odor or mess. You will be covered, warm, and comfortable.

At the Art of Health we are committed to creating
a nurturing space where you can relax and let go.

Session Room

How many sessions should I do?

If you would like guidance with a cleansing program to optimize your colonics, you can schedule a consultation where together, we can assess what may work best for you given your objective, state of health, previous cleansing experience and what you feel ready for.

In general, we find it is optimum to receive at least five sessions in a two to three week period if it is your first time cleansing or first time cleansing in a long while. Otherwise, many find it beneficial to do "The 3 in 3": three colonics over three consecutive days three to four times a year, especially with the change of seasons. We invite you to inquire about the number of sessions that is ideal for you.

Additionally, some people do one or two sessions after travel or holidays, during a cold or if they are feeling congested or constipated. Colon hydrotherapy is also becoming recognized as an effective prep for colonoscopies.*

*Please check with your primary doctor or gastroenterologist about this option.

How do I prepare?

It is ideal to begin a cleansing diet at least  3 to 5 days before your first colonic. A cleansing diet varies from person to person. For some, eliminating white sugar and white flour is cleansing. For others, green smoothie or juice fasting is an appropriate cleanse. Some like to do a raw food diet, others prefer to eat just fruits and veggies both cooked and raw. Overall, it is recommended to avoid all processed, refined and artificial foods, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and sugar for the duration of the cleanse.

Schedule a consultation with Jeannette and she will be happy to support you in finding a cleansing program that works for you.

It is recommended to refrain from eating two hours before the appointment and from liquids one hour before.
DO drink a lot of water during your overall cleanse!

Make sure you can relax before and after your appointment. Give yourself plenty of time to get to our office and even if you get stuck in traffic, please arrive relaxed and/or ready to relax! Schedule a massage before the colonic so you are even more relaxed and ready to LET GO.

How will I feel after the session?

Generally, there is no need to eliminate the rest of the day.

Most feel energetic after a colonic but we recommend you take it easy! Honor your digestive system that works so hard. Honor yourself by giving yourself space to rest and integrate your new lightness, especially after your first session.

Have a cup of a soothing herbal tea. Enjoy some miso soup or veggie broth. Have your meal be a simple easily digestible one and chew well. Remember that we eat to nourish our body, so really nourish yourself.

How do I maintain my health after the cleanse?

Many take on great health during the cleanse but after, they find they need some support and guidance to honor, maintain and enjoy their renewed relationship to their health. We offer a Six Month Whole Health Coaching Program that begins with a series of five colon hydrotherapy sessions and then moves into creating and integrating healthy choices as a way of life. This is a powerful path to take! Go to our Whole Health Coaching page for more information.
