What is colon hydrotherapy / colonic irrigation?
Colon Hydrotherapy, traditionally known as Colonic Irrigation, gently fills the colon with warm sterile filtered water through a small sterile rectal tube. When the water is flushed out, it carries with it any material that has built up in the large intestine(colon), waste matter, toxins and trapped gases.
I am considering my first irrigation. What can I expect?
You will be welcomed by an atmosphere of calming music and asked to fillout a form with your information. You will sit with Angela for the first half hour so she can better understand your needs and health status. Angela with then explain the colonic procedure and the implants she will use to help speed with the elimination of fecal matter. By now you will be ready for the irrigation You will be lying on a table with the lower part of your body covered by a big towel and an infrared hot lamp above your feet. You will be experiencing this throughout the entire next hour in a calming state. Assisted by Angela's experience with energy healing therapy, singing bowls and a hot rocks abdominal massage, along with aromatherapy will be used. She will continually guide you through the whole hour. At this point your body having received purified water through disposable tubes will start to eliminate easily. During the session a Chlorophyll and Aloe Vera implant will also be given to help the body purify and stimulate the process. A probiotic implant to rebuild the intestinal flora will follow at the end of irrigation through a small catheter.
