Frequently Asked Questions

What Will A Session Be Like?

Care and consideration is taken for comfort and privacy at all times. A small hygienic and disposable tube (called a speculum) is placed only about 2 inches into the rectum. The waste hose and the purified water tube are then connected. Clients lay comfortably on their backs for most of the session, and water gently flows in and out at a pace they control. The therapist monitors and operates the equipment, supporting the client throughout the session. Gas and waste flow through the evacuation hose directly into the sewer system so there is no odour or mess.

How Long Will It Take, What Can I Expect?

Allow an extra ½ hour for your first session as it includes a health questionnaire and consultation. Each treatment takes about an hour and includes a series of gentle cleansing water fills and releases, along with abdominal massage and deep breathing suggestions.

Will It Be Painful Or Embarrasing?

No. At the most, some people may feel a slight cramping as the colon contracts with the gentle flow of purified water. Most people can feel the speculum, but it is not painful. Clients have the choice of being fully clothed on the top, and either wearing a gown or a pair of flannel pyjama bottoms, and are draped with a towel for modesty. The room is kept warm to ensure your comfort, and the procedure is descreet and respectul.

How Many Sessions Should I Have?

The number of sessions can vary from person to person, depending on your goals and state of health, level of toxicity, etc. Usually 3-10 colonic sessions in conjuction with suppliments and dietary protocol will completely clear the colon. Based on your initial consultation and your first session, we can offer suggestions that will support you to make the optimum choice. One session will not completely empty the colon, as it takes time to rehydrate and soften any dried and layered fecal matter (mucoid plaque) until it is loosened enough to be released.

Can a Person Become Dependent On Colonics?

No. Colon hydrotherapy strenghtens the muscle tone of the colon by giving it a workout as the colon contracts and pushes the water out. The better your peristalsis (muscle contraction) the better the elimination, and the healthier the body.

I have been coming to ‘Inner Garden’ for a number of months now and intend to continue making this a part of my yearly treatment for my ‘well-being’. I have found that even though i felt fine when I first started; I feel much better balance now.
