What Is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
You have been hearing about colonic hydrotherapy for quite some time. Friends might have tried it out, and they might be suggesting you try it for yourself—but what is a colonic? What does the hydrotherapeutic process entail?
Colonic hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation or colon therapy, is a therapeutic process that involves flushing out the colon with water. This process is often used as a way to cleanse the body of toxins and improve overall health.
At a health spa or clinic that offers colonic hydrotherapy, a certified professional will insert a small tube into the rectum and gently pump filtered water into the colon. The water helps to loosen and remove waste matter from the walls of the colon.
Remove Toxins, Boost Immune System
Colon hydrotherapy is a tested form of therapy, with evidence showing it is highly effective in treating many conditions. From stress relief to cramp relief, it can offer numerous benefits to people just like you.
A colon cleanse can often be used as preparation for a colonoscopy. It can also be performed on its own and provide relief from problems such as poor digestion, IBS, and arthritis. Through soaking up water through the colon, it flushes your digestive system, thereby removing waste and bad bacteria. Clients report numerous positive outcomes from colon cleanses.
People report all sorts of benefits after undergoing a cleanse. Some of these benefits include:
- Relieves pain related to or caused by IBS, chronic constipation, and diarrhea
- Lowers risk of hemorrhoids
- Increases the intestine's ability to absorb water and valuable nutrients
- Decreases production of unwanted gas
- More energy throughout the day

- And more
As you can see, you stand to gain a lot from a visit to a local health spa.
Preparations for Colon Cleansing Sessions
Like any procedure, there are things that you should do beforehand to ensure success. When it comes to colonic hydrotherapy, the To-Do list is not too extensive, but these few steps are all very important. There is no reason to be careless when it comes to your health.
There are a few things you should do to prepare for your colonic hydrotherapy session. First, you will need to empty your bowels before the procedure. For this reason, many practitioners recommend eating lighter foods in the 24 hours leading up to the procedure. To aid this process, we recommend drinking plenty of fluids alongside whatever your light and nutritious diet may be. During the procedure, you will be on your back on a table and a small tube will be inserted into your rectum, and water will be slowly pumped into your colon. There will only be minor discomfort during this process, don’t worry.
After the water has been flushed through your system, you will be given a final wash with plain water to remove any residual waste. You may feel lighter and more energetic after your session, and you may notice an improvement in your digestion. It won’t take long for you to notice other benefits, as well.
How Long Are Hydrotherapy Sessions?
The comprehensive and rejuvenating effects of colon hydrotherapy leave people thinking that a session might take all day. If not that, they think a session might leave them unable to go about their day afterward. In reality, colon cleanses take little time at all. What’s more, clients can go on with their days after undergoing a cleanse as well.
The process usually takes about 45 minutes, and most people report feeling lighter and refreshed afterward. Some also find that their digestion improves and they have more regular bowel movements. One thing is certain: you won’t have to reschedule too many appointments in your day to allow for a colonic hydrotherapy session.
