Colon Hydrotherapy

General Overview

Hydrotherapy is a mild treatment of warm soothing UV purified water gently instilled into the colon; via the rectum, with a small sterile disposable nozzle. The inflow of water hydrates and assists your body in removing waste contents of the colon. The system is designed to evacuate and irrigate without depleting the colon of nutrients thereby producing no toxicity. Colonics stimulate the colons essential actions to secrete and release what is naturally produced by your body. The water pressure, temperature and flow is adjustable to your personal preference. Great treatment for balancing and maintaining the health, detoxification, regulation, pre and post medical procedures, colonoscopy preparation and various other health choice options. Human history has recorded colon therapy as early as the 14 century when Ebers Papryus explained the health benefits in a basic form of enema. Many cultures have continued to practice colon health and healing therapy for centuries.

Effects: A procedure removing fecal material from the colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine. Possible therapeutic effects of colon hydrotherapy are improved muscle tone; which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients from the cecum and the ascending colon, while minimizing the absorption toxic wastes. The cleansing affects reported with colon hydrotherapy reduces stagnation and subsequent bacterial proliferation in the colon and maintains harmony of intestinal flora in promoting optimal colon health.

Session Overview

Our professional caring board certified I-ACT therapist will provide the highest level of personal treatment using the most technologically advanced sanitary and comfortable system in the world. During your session you release water, waste, bacteria, microbes, mucus, debris, undigested food/pills and gas. You will be able to view your releases during the session in a view tube. Some individuals experience some cramping similar to a bowel movement sensation. Many people find the sessions enjoyable and relaxing and report feeling cleaner and lighter.  Some may experience more discomfort than others who are in general good health due to possible illness or toxins.

You will be covered at all times for privacy and warmth. Nur’ish offers unique optional items included during your session such as, heating pads, back cushions support & other enhancements to make your session as pleasant as possible. Your therapist will discuss the options during your first appointment.  Allow 1-2 hours for appointment depending on your needs. NEW Clients must schedule 2 Sessions. These 2 sessions must be scheduled 2-days in a row & a 3rd session is recommended within the same week for maximum benefit of therapy. Even physicians & colon hydrotherapy pros must schedule the required 2 sessions. Please trust our expertise and years of experience. This is for your best interest.

You will insert the sterile, disposable rectal nozzle inside your rectum. The nozzle is about the diameter of a pencil and curved to fit naturally inside your rectum. Approximately 2” inches inside your rectum and you should not feel the nozzle in place. There should be no pain during the session. Water that is UV sterilized and Carbon Filtered, is gently infused into the colon. The colon receives water and when you feel the need the colon will contract and start to release waste, water and debris out and around the nozzle. The fecal matter and body waste is released into the table basin and out through a viewing tube you will see on the side with a mirror and a low light.

Your bum should always remain in place on the table base; this is to avoid any unnecessary mess. The nozzle remains in place in your rectum during the session and when you release your waste will exit around the nozzle and down the drain basin. You are able to move your legs and sit up if you feel more comfortable, just remember to keep your bum in place on the table. The nozzle will not come out until you end the session. The only time your bum moves on the table is at the beginning when you insert the nozzle and at the end when you slide back off the nozzle at the end of your session.

A natural rhythm of water in and released out occurs during your session many times. The Colon Care System works with your body and its own natural elimination system. This process takes place for an average of 45-90 minutes, we give personal attention to colon needs and discuss timing with each individual as needed. Some people need less time and some need more. We allow plenty of time for each person to meet their intestinal cleansing needs. Your best interests are our top priority. (Please allow ample time for your appointment) You will get the therapist’s undivided attention.

When your session is finished you will drain for 5-15 min depending on your anatomy. In privacy you will gently come off the nozzle and spend a few minutes making sure you have completely drained & eliminated the colon. You will then rinse off with sprayer hose & dress. Aftercare is discussed with your therapist in a beautiful garden with your choice of refreshment after session.

Can I do intestinal cleansing on my period?

Yes, this is a great time for colon care and cleansing. Please remember to remove any feminine products prior to session and dispose in the trash or toilet not in the system. ONLY fecal waste, liquid and urine are disposed in the system.

Can I do intestinal cleansing if I am pregnant?


Can I do intestinal cleansing if I have had a Colonoscopy or Intestinal Surgery or Intestinal Procedures in the last 6 weeks?


Is intestinal cleansing painful?

Colon hydrotherapy should NOT be painful. Sometimes during the session the muscles of the colon contract suddenly, expelling considerable liquid, gas and waste into the rectum. Some clients feel cramps or gas in the rectum or lower abdomen and is alleviated when you release, cease flow of water or when session is complete.

Can I go to work afterwards?

Yes, most often people return to work or go about their every day activities. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity, eating healthy and gentle care for optimal results.

Will I need to stay close to a bathroom after the session?

No, most people do NOT need to stay close to a bathroom. Proper draining at the end of the session will empty the colon and most do not feel the need to use the toilet.

Can I bring my children or pets during my session?

We love children; however, we are not equipped to properly care for them at our facility during your treatment. Our facility is NOT child safe and we have no space or toys for them to play. Our staff focuses all of our attention on serving each client and cannot watch children or animals. The sessions work best for our clients if they are focused on their session and only themselves.
