Chantal David, Colon Hydrotherapist
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle and effective method of cleansing and restoring the colon to promote overall health. In fact, various forms of colon hydrotherapy have been practiced and documented through-out history as far back as 1500 B.C. In our modern culture you may have heard the therapy being referred to as colonics, colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation. Although the idea and goals are the same; to achieve wellness through bowel
cleansing, the equipment and administration have certainly evolved beyond using a reed in a river ! Today a professionally trained therapist uses a specialized machine to infuse clean, filtered, pressure and temperature regulated water into the colon via the rectum for the purpose of clearing the colon. The treatment is both therapeutic and hydrating.
Why it Works:
Colon hydrotherapy removes unwanted waste material which improves the function of the colon and as a result the wellness of the entire body. Light massage during the therapy restores the original colon shape improving conditions such as constipation and even diarrhea without the use of prescription drugs. By relieving localized toxins, pressure is taken off of the surrounding organs often even reducing symptoms of conditions like cystitis, dysmenorrhea and challenges affecting the heart, liver and lungs. Intestinal parasites can be flushed out as part of the process.
Colon hydrotherapy benefits the hips and lumbar areas by improving their mobility, improving venous return and improving abdominal muscle tone. By activating and restoring normal elimination, the body releases toxins, improving both immune system and metabolism, often weight loss follows.
The colon, just like the feet, hands and ears also have reflexology points along the organ. By stretching the colon it stimulates reflexology points and benefits the organs being stimulated in a positive way.
