What to expect
A Colon Hydrotherapy session is a restorative, painless procedure that is both relaxing and effective. During your appointment, your modesty and personal well-being are always maintained, and your questions are welcome.
The procedure begins with you lying comfortably on a custom treatment table. A small speculum is gently inserted into the rectum, and your therapist monitors the temperature and gentle flow of warm, highly filtered water into and out of your large intestine through a disposable, sanitized tube. Unlike other methods, no pressure or force is ever used. Instead, patients sometimes describe a "sensation of movement," and your therapist may encourage energy flow by lightly massaging key reflex points on your abdomen.
As your body continues to relax and the water begins to flow out, it carries with it built up waste matter, toxins, and trapped gasses through a completely closed system, with no fear of exposure to you or your therapist.
Appointments are approximately one hour from start to finish, and you may ask to stop the session at any point for any reason.
The PURE Method: The Woods Gravity Technique
The PURE Colonics team focus on the healing and strengthening of the bowel rather than just filling the colon to capacity with water and emptying it (a stressful cycle which actually weakens colon muscle tone, elasticity, and is uncomfortable for the client).
The Woods Gravity Method focuses on using gravity for the flow of the water, which the therapist closely controls while simultaneously performing abdominal massage, to stimulate additional release. Some of the key elements of this method are its gentleness and ability to individualize the colonic to each patient's unique needs and health conditions, increased massage time and effective, comfortable releases. The emphasis is on rehabilitating and toning the colon through the use of hydrotherapy so that the client does not become dependent. The therapist uses the water therapeutically to gently "exercise" the colon and stimulate its natural peristalsis which is also one of the foundations of a healthy digestive system - an integral role in your overall health and immunity due to the presence of lymphatic tissue throughout the digestive tract. This makes the cleansing, detoxification and toning of the digestive system important aspects of holistic health care.
