What physically happens during a colonic session?
How will I feel during a colonic session?
How long does a session last?
A colonic session usually takes between one hour to one and a half hours depending on the condition.
Is there any pain involved?
No. As your colon fills with water you may have some cramping. Your therapist uses this cue to empty your colon and assist you to release. Good communication with the therapist is what makes it a pain-free experience. When someone is experiencing discomfort, I will massage the belly, or slow the flow of water, or let them sit on the toilet. One of the main jobs of the client is to tell me when he or she feels full. At this point, I will let out the water that has been building up in the colon. With the release of water comes stool.
Will colonics help me lose weight?
Let me ask you, does feces have weight? The answer is yes so therefore, it depends on how much we release. Many people can carry between 10-50+ pounds of fecal matter in their bowels. After colonic sessions, clients report feeling lighter and less bloated. Results vary from person to person. If you carry a lot of fat, colonics cannot release fat. Fat has to be burned by adjusting diet and physical activity.
Will one session completely empty my colon?
Definitely not. In much of the literature it is written that many of us can carry ten or more pounds of impacted feces in our colon . This is hardened, rubbery material that has been baking in your 98 degree body for years and substantial work must be done to remove it. The number of recommended sessions will be determined by how you release. This depends a lot on your current situation, which should be discussed with your therapist.
How often should I have a colonic?
This depends on the desired results and severity of the issues(s). For most people, regular colon cleansing can be a very healthy and preventative choice. Your therapist will let you know approximately how many sessions you will need after your first session and this may change over time as the “plumbing” start to flow.
After a colonic will I need to be close to the toilet all day?
No, this is not a worry. When you go to the toilet after releasing your anus will shut off. The same thing happens after colonics.
How will I feel when I am finished?
Depends on the release. Most people feel relieved from gases and waste. Clients report feeling lighter, happier and sexier (men watch out!)
Is there any time I shouldn’t have colonics?
Yes! When you are afraid to feel good.
