Colon Hydrotherapy is a very safe, non-invasive procedure that cleanses the colon to reduce and/or
remove parasites and toxins. This procedure is done by using large amounts of water through the rectum.
There are two types of systems: Open & Closed; Each system operates in a different way, which is important to understand when searching for Colonics — at Gentle Wellness Center, we use a CLOSED system only. A closed system requires the Colon Hydrotherapist to insert a speculum into the rectum (via the anus) which allows water to flow inside through a disposable tube that is then attached to the equipment. For precautions and the purpose of a closed system, the Colon Hydrotherapist MUST be in the room at all times.
