Colon hydrotherapy is a form of cleaning the bowels which frees the rectum from burdens. Our bowels have to fight continuously with the environmental influences associated with our modern lifestyle. This can lead to problems.
The colon hydrotherapy is comparable to an enema, but with greater intensity as the treatment involves the whole of the large intestinal tract. The treatment process is supported by an abdominal massage. Body temperature water is slowly introduced into the rectum via an intestinal tube which is part of a closed hose system. The procedure is carried out with low pressure, controlled congestions and it is continuously accompanied by an abdominal massage so that the treatment is comfortable. Subsequently the water and the flushed contents of the bowels are emptied through a discharge hose. The colon hydrotherapy effectively removes accumulated stagnated stool and rotted material from the walls of the intestines. The functional surface of the intestines is increased und its detoxification capability improved.
During the treatment you lie relaxed on the bed. You will receive a gentle abdominal massage from our therapists as they seek problem zones to be treated. Through this stimulation the intestines begin to work harder again and the intestinal activity is improved. In this way the colon hydrotherapy has an effect on the stool regulation which goes far beyond the treatment per se. This type of cleaning the bowels has multiple applications:
- Food intolerances
- Liver diseases, concomitant therapy during cleaning of the liver
- Chronic inflammation of the intestines
- Fungi in the gastrointestinal tract
- Chronic infections
- Abdominal disorders and discomforts, constipation, flatulence
