Colon Hydrotherapy is also referred to as Colonics or colon irrigation.
Colon Hydrotherapy is an important complementary therapy in overall healthcare. Colon Hydrotherapy not only removes impaction, parasites, intestinal gas, and cellular debris, recent European studies indicate it also cleanses and rejuvenates the immune system that resides in the intestinal tract, provides cellular and tubular drainage outwardly from the rectum, and inwardly via the portal and mesenteric lymphatic system.
A soothing flow of purified warm water is instilled gently into the colon through a small disposable rectal nozzle. The nozzle is easily inserted to cleanse (evacuate) the contents of your lower colon.
My first time in Penny’s office was pretty scary. I had never done anything like this before but I’d been having terrible problems evacuating and and my doctor suggested I try it.
Boy was I surprised. It was painless and I felt such relief throughout and after the whole process.
Now I go on a regular basis just to keep myself free of toxins and running smoothly!

Professional Colon Hydrotherapy Devices have systems whereby the pressure, temperature, and flow of water, are all safely regulated throughout the session. The techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of water and the release of waste is repeated multiple times.
During the session, upper clothing may be kept on and a gown is provided in addition to a drape, always ensuring your modesty and dignity is maintained. And, there is no odor! Odor is whisked away thru the enclosed drain pipe.
How Many Colon Hydrotherapy Sessions Does One Need?
Of course, the number of sessions desired will depend on the individual and/or Physician requirements.
Many Physicians, such as Dr. Kellogg, Dr. Wiltsie, Dr. Waddington suggest first timers and severe cases to have twelve sessions over a ten week period, two **back-to-back, first week, two back-to-back, second week and one a week for eight weeks.
**Back-to-back referring to 1 today & 1 tomorrow
Often, once is enough!
How long is the session?
Your actual time using the equipment is 35 – 45 minutes. However, please expect to be at our center for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.
Does it hurt?
It does not physically hurt. If you come in with pain, there may be some discomfort until the cause of pain is able to be released from the body. Some cramping may occur and is usually caused by accumulated gas in the colon. Our therapist is sensitive to this and provide the privacy and reassurance needed.
