Experience a lightness and cleansing of the body like never before. Colon Hydrotherapy utilizes sterile, disposable equipment to release a gentle flow of water into the colon through the rectum, which enables the removal of impacted waste and toxins.
What makes our colon hydrotherapy treatments different? At MWS we strongly believe in holistic medicine. As part of traditional alternative/holistic healing methods, our Colon Hydrotherapy is accompanied by reflexology massage at the colon pressure points. This massage speeds up the natural elimination process of the colon. We realize that this is a very personal treatment and as such, will remain with you throughout the entire treatment time to ensure your safety and comfort.
Ask yourselves: Am I clean inside? If the answer is “NO”, then you need an intestinal cleansing and you will avoid 90% of diseases. We all shower, brush our teeth and wash our hair on a daily basis, but we tend to ignore cleansing our insides until some form of diseases sends us on a wake up call.
The colon, which functions as the “sewer system” of our body, also requires regular cleansing. Constipation, parasites, gas, bloating, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, back pain, arthritis, overweight, allergies, sinus, depression, bad circulation, and digestive problems can all be signs of a toxic colon.

The colon, or large intestine, is located at the end of the human digestive tract. Its primary functions are to eliminate waste, conserve water and reabsorb electrolytes and minerals into the body. Waste materials that remain in the colon for extended period of time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites etc.) pose several health problems. These wastes can be reabsorbed into the blood stream, making us feel weak, tired, or ill. Impacted wastes can also impair the colon’s ability to absorb minerals and cause the overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast. A buildup of fecal material in the colon wall can also inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time, constipation and the results of these disorders. Colon hydrotherapy can greatly alleviate the congestion and build-up of unwanted toxic waste.
A Healthy Colon
The colon, or large intestine, is an important part of the digestive system. It is often referred to as the sewer system of the body. The human colon must handle the bulk of the food we eat. Its lining includes sensitive nerves and glands that aid in the assimilation of food - especially vitamins, enzymes and water. When the colon is working properly, its peristaltic (muscular, wave like) motions move food through the system and eliminate unassimilated substances in the form of waste within 16-24 hours of eating. A healthy individual, with a clean and healthy colon, will have two bowel movements per day. They should be large, well formed, buoyant and not accompanied by a foul odor.
Needless to say, a healthy colon is essential to a healthy body.
A Toxic Colon
Over time, your colon may become unhealthy and lose its ability to properly eliminate all the waste materials from your digestive tract. This is due to a combination of the following: Poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, drug intake, lifestyle and a variety of other factors.
When the human colon becomes less active, the body does not eliminate its waste materials as effectively. Therefore, when the elimination process is not functioning properly, deposits of waste matter build up along the wall of your colon or in the pockets of the colon.
Normally, your body pushes waste out of your colon in 16 to 24 hours. When you're not able to eliminate properly, these wastes remain in your body for days sometimes even weeks.
Even worse, if some of this waste material deposits along the colon wall, it may not leave for months or even years. Amazingly, these deposits of hardened fecal matter can get to be 2 or 3 inches thick and as hard as tire rubber.
The average healthy person who is not constipated will carry about 5-20 pounds of fecal matter in their intestines and colon at any one time. However, people who are constipated or irregular can be carrying up to 40 pounds or more of this toxic fecal matter, which is continually poisoning their body and organs.
A toxic bowel is the source of many health problems. Colon cleansing is a valuable procedure that activates the body's self healing process by washing down the old, toxic mucus lining of the bowel, thereby allowing a more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption.
Colon Hydrotherapy cleanses the colon: Toxic materials are broken down and removed so they can no longer harm the body or best pokies to play inhibit absorption and elimination. Even debris that has built up over a long period is gently removed through a series of Colon Hydrotherapy. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can function as it was meant to.
Colon Hydrotherapy exercises the colon muscles: The build-up of toxic debris weakens the colon muscles and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves the muscular contraction by which the colon naturally moves material. This will help speed up the transit time of fecal material once the colon muscles have been toned, strengthened and rejuvenated.
Colon Hydrotherapy reshapes the colon: When impacted fecal matter exists in the colon, they alter the shape and structure of the colon. The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques, help eliminate pockets of waste, finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
Colon Hydrotherapy hydrates the body: Our bodies are made of 65-75% water and with the use of casino the pure water in the Colon Hydrotherapy process. Our bodies are able to absorb much needed clean and pure water to hydrate our cells, from the inside out.

You may indulge in other vegetables that are not gas producing and combine them with a starch or a protein.
PLEASE TRY NOT TO COMBINE STARCH AND PROTEINS TOGETHER.
DONT EAT 2 HOURS BEFORE & DON’T DRINK 1 HOUR BEFORE APPT.
It is recommended that you DO NOT eat 2 hour prior to the colonic. It is always a good idea to eat healthy, drink a lot of water and try to avoid any foods that constipating or can lead to gassiness at least for 24 hours prior to your treatment.
You will feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well being, clarity and mental alertness. You will be able to perform your regular activities. For some, Colon Hydrotherapy may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for a few hours after the treatment. Normally there is no uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. In some instances, individuals may experience fatigue, headaches or discomfort after the treatment. Sometimes our bodies react to the healing process by giving us temporary symptoms. Please contact your therapist so they can advice you on next steps.
In order to obtain lasting benefits, all clients should commit to a series of treatments. A ‘series’ is described as a treatment occurring weekly or several times a week. In chronic cases, a therapist will work on hydrating the system and loosening the hard fecal matter before the impacted matter can actually start to release. How many session each individual needs, varies from person to person.
No, Colon Hydrotherapy is not dangerous in any way. The elimination of fecal matter is an essential natural process and because of this there is virtually no danger associated with Colon Hydrotherapy. When you are under the care of a Licensed and Certified therapist, your safety is their primary concern. Our intent is to provide a safe and healthy service.
The most frequent post-colonic experience reported is a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following the colonic. This is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the muscles in the colon. This indicates that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Infrequent diarrhea or loose bowels may be experienced. This is due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of toxic waste. It is nothing to be concerned with, and in fact is a good thing.
There are 3 factors involved in having a well functioning colon: diet, exercise and attitude. All three must be in balance for a colon to function well. Often, the colon has been severely weakened due to stationary toxic waste, stretching from holding excessive stool and being constricted by chronic tension. The process of Colon Hydrotherapy is an important step in healing the colon so that changes in diet, exercise and attitude can produce beneficial effects. Many people are motivated to make positive changes in their lifestyle after a series of Colon Hydrotherapy treatments. It can truly be a life changing experience.
On the contrary, washing out of putrefied material in the colon, increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment. That is why the intestines of a newborn baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. In a clean environment, the intestinal flora flourishes and starts multiplying immediately in their natural state. This is why it’s important to take Probiotic. Each capsule delivers millions and millions good bacteria into the colon resulting in a healthy colon ecosystem.
The removal of stagnant waste material and hardened, impacted toxic residue helps rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides inside the intestines. Recent European studies show that 90% of immune tissues reside inside the intestines. It is a fact that 80% of all illnesses start in the large intestines. Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but a critical adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of our clients.
We suggest eating a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Using common sense is the best approach. Eating a meal or foods that are known to cause trouble in your abdomen or cause excessive gas directly following a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment is not an intelligent choice. Foods such as green leafy salads, vegetable soups, fruits and unrefined foods are recommended. Drinking plenty of fluids is also highly recommended after a treatment. This can come in the form of vegetable and fruit juices, but distilled or purified water is preferred.
Although result will vary, the following have been experienced after colon hydrotherapy:
Immediate abdominal relief
Improved clarity of mind and overall well being
Increased bowel function and improved digestion
Reduced bloating and discomfort
