Colon Hydro Therapy

TREATMENTS

Colon Hydro Therapy

The colon hydro-therapy is a procedure in which the large intestine is freed from stool blockages. The main aim of colon hydrotherapy from a naturopathic point of view is to purify the intestine in a natural way, especially from older faeces residues, while rinsing out harmful bacteria and yeasts.

 

Colon hydrotherapy gives the intestine a chance to start afresh. Once the toxins have been removed, the intestines can recover and regenerate. For us it is a powerful ally of the detoxification measures.

 

It is a clean and odourless intestinal flush. Through a plastic tube, tempered water (without pressure) is passed into the intestine. A closed system dissipates the dissolved intestinal contents.

 

With the help of a gentle abdominal massage, the therapist can direct the water into previously-diagnosed problem areas. This enables intensive cleansing of the large intestine, in order to enable regulated intestinal peristalsis. The closed system prevents the release of any unpleasant odours.
