What is Colon Irrigation?

Also known as colonics, colon hydrotherapy or colon lavage, colon irrigation is a natural method of removing waste material from the large intestine that has been accumulating for years. This accumulation may be causing physical problems such as toxicity or even disease. Through colon irrigation, toxic waste is flushed out so it does not reabsorb into the body and cause further problems.

Colon irrigation treatment sessions are performed by a colon hygienist who fills a client's colon with warm filtered water through a tube which is connected to a water source. The other end of the tube is inserted approximately 10cm into the client's rectum. Next, the colon therapist gives the client a gentle abdominal massage, which helps to contract the colon and expel waste.
