This service is a safe, gentle and effective treatment used to cleanse toxic matter and tone the large intestine. The process works by introducing warm, filtered water into the colon to hydrate and loosen hard, impacted fecal matter.

The Experience

Colonics will then help with stimulating our colon’s muscles to work more efficiently, gets rid of lingering waste, hydrates the colon, increases cell integrity, reduces inflammation, and increases energy.

Unfortunately, a busy lifestyle and other imbalances can result in poor stimulation of the reflex to have a bowel movement and over time the bowel may lose its tone and shape, resulting in a number of ailments, most notably; poor bowel function.

Using double purified water, sterile equipment and mild abdominal massage we are able to stimulate a sluggish colon and rebuild the natural muscular contractions or “peristaltic squeeze” that should naturally occur in the body.

The treatment is roughly an hour in length. Most patients do a minimum of four treatments spaced out over a few weeks.
