    How does a colon hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema?
    An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with colon hydrotherapy the entire length of the colon is reached and it is many more times effective.
  4. ?

    Is there any possibility of bacterial or viral contamination from prior use of the colon hydrotherapy equipment?
    The Angel of Water® system uses single-use, sterile rectal nozzles. The use of sterile disposables coupled with the implementation of the Angel of Water®’s multi-stage sanitation protocol with EPA registered disinfectants leaves no danger of contamination.

    What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy cleansing?
    Refrain from eating about 2 hours before the cleansing, be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.
  6. ?

    Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
    Usually not, but everyone is different. Some report a slight feeling of tiredness, but this is similar to the feeling you have after exercising vigorously. After a session, sipping warm liquids is usually very soothing. If you have concerns, consult with your colon hydrotherapist.
  7. ?

    Is colon hydrotherapy embarrassing?
    No, you are completely covered during the entire procedure, reclined and resting comfortably on the hydrotherapy device. The trained therapist helps to insure the individual maintains the utmost dignity during the session. It is a very relaxing experience.

    What is colon hydrotherapy?
    Colon hydrotherapy, also known as Colonics, is the gentle infusion of water into the colon to cleanse it of accumulated waste material, gas, mucus, undigested foods and other toxins. It helps improve muscle tone, facilitating the natural peristaltic action necessary for efficient removal of waste and absorption of nutrients. Toxic waste buildup can be the root of a variety of different health concerns. A colonic is a more gentle way of elimination than an enema. This is due to a controlled, lower water pressure. All waste is removed through a tube, which makes a colonic cleaner as well. It is safer to use than laxatives since no drugs are involved and there no potential harmful side effects. We use FDA registered equipment with disposable, sealed speculum kits.

    How is a session given?
    Sessions take place in a private room with a certified colon hydrotherapist. The client lies/reclines comfortably on a table, fully draped during the course of the session. The client self-inserts or with guidance a disposable, hygienic speculum/nozzle into the rectum. Water is then gently introduced into the colon via a small tube, and the waste is removed via a large evacuation tube or channel. These are directly connected to the sewer system. There is no odor, no mess, and no embraseement. A series of water “fills” and “releases” take place during the treatment. The therapist remains in the room throughout the procedure, working with the client on various breathing and massage techniques to enhance the process.
  10. ?

    Will a treatment completely empty out the colon?
    No. A mild cleanse will take 2-3 sessions, over the course of one week, depending on the client. Since we are constantly eating and drinking, the colon never becomes completely empty. The goal of colonics is to remove the fecal plaque and other toxins which have accumulated over time, not to try and completely empty the colon of normal, everyday waste.

    Is the water filtered?
    Yes! Angel of Water® colonic system equipped with a three stage, patented, water filtration system for particle removal, chlorine reduction, and bacteria and virus reduction.
