Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle and effective procedure which has been used to cleanse the colon of built up waste, relieve symptoms of constipation and help restore ideal colon function. Proper bowel function can often be restored, in time, by the regular use of colonics accompanied by proper eating habits, consumption of sufficient amounts of water, regular exercise and the use of the right nutritional supplements.
We use the gentle gravity method developed by Dr. Woods, the Father of colon hydrotherapy. Dr. Woods pioneered the field of colon hydrotherapy and his time tested method is still considered to be the most beneficial, natural and gentlest method of hydrotherapy, and which is prefered worldwide..
We start by having you fill out a health history. We will briefly discuss your goals for your health and any pertinent health issues before beginning the colonic. Recommendations regarding lifestyle and eating habits may be made depending upon the need. You will then go into the bathroom and be allowed to change into a hospital gown. Then you will start by reclining comfortably on a softly padded and heated table. The speculum will be inserted. We use only freshly filtered water and disposable specula for the colonics. The speculum allows for the introduction of warm, body temperature water into the colon, as is done with an enema. A larger waste line is also connected to the speculum which carries away the excess water and fecal waste. We will by start alternately introducing water slowly and gently, and then releasing the water and waste as we work our way around the descending, transverse and ascending sections of the colon. Your abdomen will be gently massaged at times during the colonic to help relax the muscles, move gas pockets and gently stimulate peristalsis, which helps the colon to empty. The sensations although unfamiliar are not usually uncomfortable. The entire procedure usually lasts forty five minutes to an hour for a healthy colon.
When the colonic is complete, you will return to the restroom and use the toilet to release any remaining waste. When you are finished you will change back into your clothing. We will then go over any recommendations based on my observations and you will have the opportunity to purchase supplements such as fiber and probiotics if they are necessary. You will be attended by Christine Williams who has been a colon therapist for 31 years in Asheville, NC.

Michele Torino Hower reviewed Health & Wellness Naturally — 5 star January 21, 2017 · Having used colonics to assist in cleansing over the past 10 years, I found Christine to be knowledgeable and professional, caring and calm. Her hands seemed to know just where to massage on my belly to help everything move as it needed. The bed was warm and the room was clean. Because the colonic was good and complete - and because I felt at ease with Christine, I plan to see her again when my gut needs assistance.
Kimberly Brittain Wilson recommends Health & Wellness Naturally— 5 star- October 20 · Excellent hydrotherapy session.. if you have gut issues Christine is great. Hydrotherapy has done more to benefit me in 3 months than almost 2 years of seeing doctors, gastroenterologist, tests etc. I feel amazing and have dropped about 15 pounds just from the sessions (2) alone.
Jackie Cole reviewed Health & Wellness Naturally — 5 star February 26 · Knowing a colonic would help my 93 yr young mother get rid of quite a bit of mucus after she had a stomach virus and help a sluggish colon, I called with 1 hrs notice and Christine was more than willing to fit us in. Christine was very accommodating and gave my mother a very thorough colonic. I would highly recommend her!
