What's a Colonic?:
A colonic, (or colon hydrotherapy, colonic irrigation, high
enema) is a safe, effective way to cleanse the colon of waste material
by repeated, gentle flushing with water.
You will be asked your recent
health history to clear any potential contraindications before beginning
the session. Contraindications are health conditions or recent surgery
that would make it undesirable to have a colonic treatment. Please call
if you think you might have a condition that would contraindicate colon
hydrotherapy. We will be happy to answer your questions.
In a 45-minute
session, approximately 15 gallons of water is used to gently flush the
colon several times. Through the appropriate use of palpation of the
belly, reflexology pressure points and breath work colon hydrotherapy
helps to loosen and eliminate more waste safely and easily than any
other short-term technique.
A colon hydrotherapy instrument provides
filtered, ultra-violet light-treated water which is warmed to
approximately body temperature. We use a closed system at Mana Kai,
which means the water is delivered through disposable plastic tubing and
speculum, and the waste exits through another disposable tube.
hydrotherapy is gentle and effective, and most often quite comfortable.
Special care is taken to put you at ease, including answering all your
questions and protecting your privacy at all times.
