WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
“A bath on the insides”
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method of cleansing the colon by repeated gentle flushing with warm filtered water under very low pressure with a colonic irrigation machine. Using special massage techniques on the tummy area to stimulate release of impacted fecal matter.
The most common reason for ailments is not having regular bowel movement. With our modern lifestyles and unhealthy diets, this habit leads to huge amounts of toxic build up in our bodies. Our bodies are literally screaming for help by getting sick or feeling sluggish. If you require added benefits of tummy flattening and intensive detoxification, the Colonic should be perfect for you.
The irrigation of water facilitates peristalsis which is the coordinated movement of the muscles surrounding the colon, helping to remind the muscle how to work. It also removes stagnant fecal material from the colon wall. This stagnant fecal material may lead to Dysbiosis (an imbalance of intestinal bacteria), fermentation and putrefaction.
Besides removing fecal material, a colonic helps to remove bacterial toxins in the therapeutic system leading to the liver; decrease toxic burden; improve the immune system; and remove mucous, gas, parasites, cellular debris, and food allergens. The removal of mucous plugs and other impactions allows increased absorption of nutrients. It can also stimulate the gallbladder to release bile which expedites removal of toxins such as pesticides and heavy metals. Because the large intestine is responsible for water re-absorption, a colonic can also help re-hydrate a patient.
WHEN DO YOU NEED COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT?
You will know that your body is full of toxin when you experience the following symptoms:
Coated tongue, foul breath, sallow complexion, abnormal body odour, dark circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails and hair, sagging posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, chronic headaches, irritability, nervousness, nausea, depression, asthma, obesity and backaches.
CLOSED COLON HYDROTHERAPY SYSTEM
At Cocoon Medical Spa in Bali we use a closed system of colon hydrotherapy. It is completely closed, so there is no mess, no smells, no embarrassment. It is a very gentle system, it does not rely on pressure to create the result, instead it is all about your expert therapist manually and gently massaging your abdomen and releasing the tubes when needed.
Clients have loved this system as there is no fuss and no mess, it is very relaxing and you will feel completely cleansed after the treatment. The treatment lasts approx 30 to 40 minutes.

- Improve digestion
- Boost your immune system
- Alkalize your body
- Increase energy and mood

Before your session:
It’s a good idea to eat and drink light meals a few days before your treatment. Raw fruit, freshly extracted juices, salads, and pureed soup are recommended. Do not eat a heavy meal before your session.
3 days prior to your appointment:
- Take 35 grams of psyllium fibre per day, 1 tablespoon, 20 minutes prior to each meal.
- 8 – 12 glasses of water per day.
- Eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible to loosen things up in the colon.
- No solid meals, poultry or carbohydrates for the week when colon treatment is on.
- Take 2 tablets of probiotics per day, one tablet before meal.
During the session:
Allow for at least 60 to 90 minutes for your session. The actual procedure takes 45 minutes. A disposable speculum is gently introduced and only a controlled amount of water is allowed to enter the colon at any time. During the process of your treatment, your technician will apply special massage strokes to encourage the release of impacted fecal matter.
WHAT TO EXPECT OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
While some people report increased energy and digestion, many also find that their weight is reduced and they sleep better, with less migraines. It is generally expected that you will see immediate, positive results even after one treatment.
Some common reactions after colon therapy session:
- Light headed
POST TREATMENT CARE OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY
As soon as your session is finished, you may resume your daily routine. Sometimes, the session may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won’t be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. You may feel light-headed or chilled after the session, but again it’s all temporary and part of the cleansing process.
Several treatments may be necessary to attain best results, as the stored toxic waste in our bowels has been there for a long time. An assessment will be done after each treatment to determine your requirements. It is important to follow through with good health and lifestyle choices, including a high quality probiotic culture to repropagate the bowel flora.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is the difference between a colon cleanse and enema?
The colon is approximately five to six feet long. To clean out the lower part of the colon, enemas will suffice. But, that leaves about four feet of colon! Laxatives interfere with other digestive processes higher up in the Alimentary Tract and are not only irritants to the body, but the colon can become rather dependent upon them; when used, a thin, watery substance is produced that goes through the colon leaving behind impacted toxins and waste.
What can I expect after my colon hydrotherapy session?
Most people will feel lighter and less bloated immediately. Many people will feel an abundance of energy. You may feel the need to use the bathroom more often that day.
How often will I need to have colon hydrotherapy?
Most doctors will prescribe a series of cleanses from 3 to 12 times over a period of time, depending on your condition. We offer a variety of packages to give our patients discounts on multiple sessions. A great way to maintain a healthy system is to have at least 1-3 colon cleanses with every change of season.
This does not sound like fun. Honestly, how bad is it?
Great question. When you come in we will help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. You are never exposed to smells or mess with our closed system. Our trained colon hydrotherapist will assist you through the entire session. Most people review the procedure to be comfortable and relaxing. There should be no pain involved; only a slight discomfort like gas or constipation as the impacted colon contracts to eliminate. After this, sessions can be quite relaxing.
