What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a natural method using filtered water to decongest the colon (removing poisons and accumulation of fecal matter), subsequently decongesting the body as a whole. With waste removed, eliminatory channels (colon, kidneys, lungs, skin) can return to their optimal function helping restore overall health. The technique involves introducing purified water into the large intestine to flush out waste. This also meets the body’s need to cleanse itself. The water is gently and steadily injected into the colon through the rectum. This process allows for in-depth cleansing. Procedures are done in a private sanitary and relaxing environment by one of our certified colonic hygienists. We provide you with a gown, and your lower body is covered with a towel or shorts with a rear opening, depending on the situation and your preference. During the treatment, you lie comfortably on a special massage-table. The hygienist asks you to lie on your side or on your back – depending on the method most efficient for evacuating the feces. There is no discomfort and not internal pressure. Colon Hydrotherapy is not habit-forming. On the contrary, cleaning the colon allows the colon to rejuvenate itself helping it function as it should. Waste inhibits its proper functioning and exhausts it as it is constantly making effort to purge toxins. Colon Hydrotherapy coupled with cleansing, proper diet and exercise provides remarkable health benefits.

Before the treatment

Your health state is discussed with your therapist. The therapist will then explain the Colon Hydrotherapy process to you. Questions are encouraged throughout the treatment. At La Clinique l’Aube, we are aware of the intimate nature of this process and we will take the necessary time to establish a mutually respectful and trusting environment.

Preparation prior to hydrotherapy

At Clinique l’Aube, we recommend you have a consultation with one of our therapists prior to your first treatment. It is important to prepare the intestine to ensure effective treatment. The preparation should take place several days, or even several weeks prior to the treatment. Our therapist will prepare a diet plan for you and recommend eliminatory drinks that will help further increase benefits and efficiency of your Colonic Hydrotherapy.
