Detox

What is Detoxification?

Detox is a systematic approach to assisting your body in removing excess toxins so that it can function effectively and efficiently. Excess can be attributed to exposure to environmental toxins (smoke, pollution, etc.), illness, poor diet, stress, emotional trauma, excesses of drugs and alcohol or even toxins generated within the body itself.

Type of Detox Description and Process
Colonics What is a Colonic? Fecal matter can accumulate and harden in the colon, leading to constipation, lack of absorption of water and nutrients, growth of harmful colon bacteria and yeast and increased absorption of toxins into the bloodstream. Colonics flush the colon in order to clean it and rid it of toxic buildup.

Duration: Lasts 45 minutes to an hour.

Process:

  1. Consultation: Fill out medical forms and have a consultation with the therapist
  2. Change: Change into a gown and lie face up on treatment table
  3. Insertion: Therapist inserts a disposable speculum connected to a hose from a hydrotherapy unit into the anus
  4. Irrigation: Warm, filtered water is slowly released into the colon, causing the muscles in the colon to contract, pushing waste out through the hose into a closed waste system
  5. Massage: While maintaining slow and steady irrigation, the therapist will often assist the process with reflexology and/or gentle abdominal massage to facilitate the process
  6. Bathroom: The therapist leaves the room, and you sit on a toilet to pass any residual water and stools
