FAQs

What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is a procedure that assists in eliminating waste that is trapped in your colon; waste that may have been trapped there for years. During colonic irrigation, distilled water gently flushes your colon.

What are the benefits of colon hydrotherapy?

The benefits of colon hydrotherapy include rejuvenating your colon through the removal of toxic material, so your colon can regain its ability to function properly. Through the filling and emptying of your colon with water, your colon is “exercising” which ultimately helps improve its natural ability to efficiently move material through the colon itself.

Is colon hydrotherapy safe?

Yes! There are strict FDA guidelines that we follow here at Scottsdale Hydrotherapy to ensure your safety. We use top of the line, FDA approved equipment. The system we use is the Angel of Water system.

Is it necessary to see my doctor prior to colon hydrotherapy?

If you wish to consult your doctor regarding colon hydrotherapy and if it is the right choice for you, please do so.

What symptoms does colon hydrotherapy address?

At Scottsdale Hydrotherapy we look at your symptoms and try to alleviate them, while addressing your body as a whole. We do not claim to be medical doctors, so if you have a true medical concern, please consult your doctor. With that in mind, the symptoms that colon hydrotherapy can address include:

Constipation, allergies, skin problems, headaches, weight struggles, tension, irritability, menstrual problems, bloating, flatulence, body odor, blood pressure problems, frequent colds, lethargy, mental fatigue, lower back pain, and more. Please give us a call, if you have a question regarding your specific issue.

Does colon hydrotherapy hurt?

You should not feel any pain during your session. Some individuals may feel gas or cramping, but your therapist is well-skilled to help make your experience a positive one where you leave feeling lighter and refreshed.

Is an enema, suppository, or laxative a good substitute for a colon cleanse?

There really is no substitute for a true colon cleanse. Other means may empty out part of the colon, such as the enema, or temporarily help with constipation, as it is with a laxative, but a true cleanse is done with colon hydrotherapy.

How long is each session?

The session is typically 45 minutes.

Is there a chance that nothing will come out during my first session?

There are many factors that go into how much material will come out during your first session. Dehydration and a low fiber diet may result in minimal material being expelled during the first session. But during that session, there will be an impact on your colon which should lead to future successful sessions.

Will the whole process be embarrassing?

Not at all! We always have your dignity and privacy in mind. After we give you simple instructions, we allow you to be in control of the insertion of the tubing, and we provide you with a sheet to keep yourself covered. While a therapist is always available for any assistance needed, you control the level of privacy during your session.

Is the session smelly?

There should not be any odor or mess during the session, due to our state of the art equipment.

How many treatments do I need and how often?

While this is a very popular question, and we would love to give you an exact number, the answer really varies. There are so many factors that come into play regarding the waste itself in your colon, and any conditions you may have. What we can tell you is that we will never recommend anything more than what would be best for each of our clients. After all, without trust, a relationship cannot thrive.

After colon hydrotherapy, when will my bowel movements return to normal?

Your normal schedule should resume in a couple of days. It is possible it may take longer than that if there is a large accumulation of waste in your colon.

If I have my menstrual period, is it ok to still come in for the colonic?

Yes, that is no problem at all.

Does the colonic flush out the friendly bacteria in the colon?

After the cleansing, it takes less than 36 hours to restore the normal bacteria population. And because of the cleanse, friendly colon bacteria will multiply much more easily going forward.
