Our colon hydrotherapists are highly qualified and thoroughly trained in operating The Angel of Water colonic device. The Angel of Water is a state of the Art, top of the line FDA approved Type 2 medical device. It gently delivers purified, double filtrated water through a client inserted rectal nozzle. Colon cleansing is safe, comfortable, and an effective means of hydrating and evacuating the bowel’s contents.
Colon hydrotherapy is an alternating cycle of gently filling and then draining the colon with water. Each client is assured a private, comfortable experience throughout the session. The usual colonic irrigation lasts 35-60 minutes. During the session you are covered at all times. There is no pain, smell, or mess. We thoroughly explain how to insert the pencil sized, disposable, (single use), sterilized nozzle and leave the room during positioning on the Angel of Water device.
Throughout history colon cleansing has met the medical needs of people everywhere. Colon cleansing has been recorded as early as 1500 B.C. in an Egyptian document called ”Eber Pabvrus”.
A toxic bowel is the source of many health problems. Colon cleansing activates the body’s self-healing processes thereby allowing more efficient waste elimination and nutrient absorption. Both are essential to a lasting rejuvenation process. This is also the first step toward normalizing the colon so friendly bacteria can return keeping the colon safe from putrefaction. It is a time for deep healing and restoration!
Anyone experiencing constipation or diarrhea, food allergies, skin conditions, weight gain, fatigue, bloating, or needs to prep prior to a colonoscopy procedure, may benefit from a colonic. Please feel free to call with any questions or clarifications that you may have regarding our colonic treatments.
Colonics are a gift for your body, mind and soul. Many people feel rejuvenated after a colonic…you deserve it!

What is the benefit of colon hydrotherapy?
People receive colon hydrotherapy for a variety of personal and holistic wellness reasons. Some of the most common benefits of colon hydrotherapy are ridding the body of excess waste material. Toxins from this waste buildup re-enter and circulate in the blood stream leaving an individual feeling ill, tired or weak. Impacted materials impair the colons ability to assimilate minerals and good bacteria. Additionally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation. The colon is an important organ of elimination and vital in detoxifying the body as a whole.
What should I expect, physically, from my colon hydrotherapy session?
Each individual may experience slightly different reactions physically. The level of toxins an individual carries is based upon a variety of factors both internal and external. Most individuals report feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after a session. Other individuals experience the session more like a workout at the gym. It is important to remember that colon hydrotherapy is just that, a workout for the large intestine’s muscles. Once your muscles recover from the workout, the resulting feelings are often positive and energizing.
How long does a colon hydrotherapy session last?
Each session will vary based on the individual. The goal is detoxifying the body which is performed by responding to the body’s natural responses. Once situated on the device, a session lasts anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes. Each session is adjusted to the individual and the duration is ultimately determined by the body. It is recommended the client be prepared to spend 90 to 120 minutes at the center on their first visit to ensure enough time for a thorough consultation, health history, and a question and answer session.
Will I experience pain during my session?
Most commonly, people do not describe colon hydrotherapy as painful. An individual may experience cramping or nausea associated with toxic releases, however these symptoms pass quickly. Clients are provided with a warm flax seed bag to place upon the abdomen that helps to eliminate or alleviate any associated cramping that could be experienced. Most often people will describe feeling refreshed, revived and full of energy once they have completed the session.
What should I expect after the session?
Following a colon hydrotherapy session you may carry on your daily activities. However, it is important you follow the directions and recommendations of your therapists; allowing your body enough time to drain completely of excess water. Once the colon rids itself of excess water, most people report feeling energized and lighter.
What is the recommended diet following a colon hydrotherapy session?
Following your session you may eat meals as your body prescribes. Some individuals experience hunger afterwards. You may eat as closely following your session choosing whatever foods you wish. However, it is encouraged you choose a lighter diet for the next 24 hours. This diet consists of foods such as soups, broths, cooked vegetables, and fruits or juices. After that initial 24 hours it is appropriate to start reintroducing lean proteins such as chicken, fish and eggs back into the diet. Immediately following the colon hydrotherapy session, the colon does not need excess fiber rich foods so cooked vegetables are often preferred over raw vegetables.
How do I prepare for a session?
The colon hydrotherapy session is fairly low maintenance with little required preparation. It is recommended that you avoid eating two hours prior to the appointment time. This allows for the majority of previously consumed food to pass from the stomach to the small intestines, where the excess pressure on the abdomen will no longer create nausea or discomfort.
Is the process embarrassing?
Your entire session and consultation at Serenity Health & Wellness Center is conducted within the privacy or you and your therapists. You will be provided with the level of privacy you request while always having a therapist moments from you. Our atmosphere provides a safe and comfortable setting for the entire service time to uphold each client’s dignity and eliminate any feelings of embarrassment or unease.
How big is the rectal nozzle?
The one time use, sterile, self-inserted rectal nozzle is approximately the size of a pencil. Each client is given specific instructions on methods to insert the nozzle gently and effectively. With the ergonomic design of the nozzle, it is only necessary to insert approximately 1” to 1.5” to complete the session.
What is the difference between colon hydrotherapy and an enema or a laxative?
The Colon Hydrotherapy session will clean and cleanse the entire five feet of the large intestines through water integration that softens and releases build up on the intestinal wall. Traditional enemas will only clean the lower portion of the colon including the descending and sigmoid colon regions. Laxatives often encourage muscular contractions which help the body to eliminate waste, but do not soften or effectively remove build up from the intestinal wall.
How often should I have colon hydrotherapy?
Each person will experience a different result from an individual colon hydrotherapy session or a group of sessions. The Colon Hydrotherapist will make recommendations regarding follow up sessions based on the results from the initial session and each clients self reported goals.
The Naturopathic approach recommends two sessions on back-to-back days, followed by a week long break and ending with two more back-to-back days of sessions. Following this initial detoxification one session per week is recommended for following eight weeks. This consists of a total of 12 sessions over ten weeks.
Knowing that not everyone is capable of this intense of a detoxification program, we offer individual sessions, multi-session packages and VIP memberships consisting of 12 sessions over a 12 month time period. This allows for an ease into the process both physically and financially.
Is colon hydrotherapy safe and sterile?
Serenity Health & Wellness Center is one of three locations in Ohio to have the only FDA approved, medical grade Angel of Water Device. This device is FDA approved due to its increased safety features such as temperature and pressure controls as well as the double sterilization of the water via carbon and sediment filter and UV light filters. Additionally, all disposable items used for each individual session are one time use, sterilized materials that are discarded appropriately following a hydrotherapy session.
I’ve heard Colon Hydrotherapy flushes out necessary good bacteria from the intestines. Is this safe ?
Colon hydrotherapy eliminates all bad and good bacteria from the colon. However, it also creates an environment that encourages reestablishment of good bacteria that will replenish safely and quickly the consumption of food or a probiotic while eliminated bad bacteria that often results in illness or discomfort.
Can colon hydrotherapy be used to prepare for a Colonoscopy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective preparation for a Colonoscopy. Most commonly it is recommended that two colon hydrotherapy sessions be completed on back-to-back days and as closely to the Colonoscopy as possible. It is always encouraged that you speak with your physician about this method of preparation for your procedure prior to.
Can I just drink excess water to achieve the same results I will get from colon hydrotherapy?
The object of colon hydrotherapy is to over hydrate the large intestines to the point in which excess water will build up, soften, and release toxic wastes from the intestinal wall. Though an increase in water intake will keep the body hydrated as necessary, it likely will not produce the over hydration necessary for the desired result of waste buildup elimination. As an example, if excess water intake produced the same result then we would find physicians prescribing it as preparation for Colonoscopy procedures rather than prescribing a drinkable substance to result in the complete cleansing of the colon.
