Wellness Center: Integrative Medicine: Colonic Hydrotherapy in San Diego
Colon Hydrotherapy San Diego | San Diego Colonic Hydrotherapist
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle and effective method of flushing out toxic waste that involves the infusion of filtered water into the colon (large intestine) through the rectum. No chemicals or drugs involved, the therapy session is both relaxing and effective. We use only state of the art FDA approved equipment with disposable hoses and speculums. A skilled colon hydro therapist will use several fills of water as well as an light abdominal massage to dislodge toxic waste.
Colon hydrotherapy is beneficial for people who desire better health. Some of the benefits may include the following:
Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Fecal debris built up over a long period is gently removed over a series of irrigations. Once this impacted material is removed, your colon can again begin its normal elimination function. A colon hydrotherapy session may be considered a rejuvenation treatment for your body.
The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its function. Gentle filling and emptying of the colon can improve peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity, which aids efficient removal of waste material.
Over time, the natural shape of a problematic colon will become distorted, causing even more problems. The gentle water action and massage techniques of the therapist will help eliminate protruding pockets of waste and narrow, spastic constrictions. After a series of colon hydrotherapy treatments, the colon gradually begins to resume its natural shape.
Stimulation of Reflex Points
Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colon hydrotherapy session stimulates these reflex points, thereby effecting the corresponding body parts, in a beneficial way similar to reflexology.
