Discover the benefits of

Colon Hydrotherapy

At Pure Beauty & Wellness Spa (formerly San Miguel Wellness Center) we focus on supporting your goals for digestive health, detoxing and cleansing, as well as addressing health issues that may be caused by toxicity. Colon Hydrotherapy is the most natural and effective way to flush the colon. Warm purified water hydrates the colon wall while it softens and loosens compacted waste allowing it to leave your system gently. Cleaning and hydrating the colon wall allows the cells to heal and rejuvenate. The treatment itself will also tone and train your colon to work more effectively.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Did you know that we should be eliminating 3 to 4 times a day? One meal in, one meal out. Toxins in our air, water and diet, cosmetic products and even stress can cause illness and disease, and they increase the magnitude of our health challenges and slow down our digestive system. The health of our organs and our overall well-being depends on how well our elimination functions work. Poor elimination leads to the impaction of toxic waste in our colon which in turn can cause toxicity in the entire body. The colon also functions as the final absorption of Vitamins B and K, water and other nutrients as well as the location of important receptors for serotonin. Poor colon health will disrupt all of these functions.

about our Cryotherapy Treatments

Colon Hydrotherapy, using an insured and registered FDA medical device, is a safe and effective method to remove decaying, impacted fecal matter from the large intestine using warm purified water and without the use of drugs, laxatives or chemicals. The closed system features state of the art sanitation, water purification, pressure control and temperature controls using disposable sanitized products. 

Colon Hydrotherapy is the gentle process of infusing warm, purified water to cleanse and balance the colon. During the session a highly trained professional gently and slowly administers the warm water into the colon. This technique gently stimulates the colon's natural peristalsis to release softened, impacted waste. Clients relax on a custom treatment table, fully covered, while the treatment hydrates, detoxifies and heals, helping to achieve optimal health. Dignity is maintained at all times. 

Pure Beauty & Wellness Studio practices the Slo Fil method developed by Cathy Shea which helps hydrate, nourish, heal, tone, and train the colon to eliminate more effectively. The wonderful thing about the Slo Fil method is that we focus on relaxation and hydration. Studies have shown that the more we relax, the more we release. In order for the treatment to be as comfortable and effective as possible and for you to stay relaxed while the warm purified water hydrates the colon, we only introduce one cup of water at a time.

1. Will it hurt?​
No, it will not hurt. We work very gently using a Slo-filsm method of introducing water into the colon. There is a small plastic piece called a speculum that is gently inserted into the rectum. The speculum is lubricated so that it slides in easily and with no discomfort.

2. What is a session like?
Very warm water is slowly introduced into the anus. You are always in control, if at any time you are feeling uncomfortable, you can stop. If your body is able, more small slow fills will be made introducing about 1 cup of water at a time into the colon. Then when you feel you are full, you just say empty and the water is allowed to empty taking any fecal matter or undigested food along with it. If you feel that you can take another fill, the process can be repeated. Each time you are trying to allow water deeper and deeper into the colon to cleanse it gently. Some abdominal massage may be given to help move the water along past any blockages such as gas bubbles or large fecal matter. Everything that is done is done slowly and gently. Your safety and comfort are the number one priority.

3. How long will a session be?
The first session will take about 1hour and 30 minutes. Joanna will sit down and discuss your health history as well as any health issues that you are currently dealing with. She will need to know about any medications that you are taking and will talk a little about your eating habits. The actual treatment usually lasts about 45 minutes and everything that is being done will be explained to you.

4. Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my treatment?
It’s best to stop eating and drinking 2 hours before your session. This allows your colon to rest and be ready for relaxation.

5. Is one treatment enough or will I have to come back for more treatments?
It’s best to receive a series of three treatments in a row when you first begin. This way you can be somewhat assured of reaching far up into the colon and really doing a good job of cleaning. After the initial series it is really up to you and your therapist to determine what would be a good protocol for you. If you eat well and take good care of yourself, it may only be necessary to have a series once per quarter. However, if your eating habits are somewhat poor or you are having digestive issues, it may be beneficial to have treatments on a monthly basis. Each person is different. We want to coach you to use colon hydrotherapy regularly as part of your wellness program. Like changing the oil in your car to keep it running well!

6. Do I need to fast or do a colon cleanse before the colonics?
No, it helps to drink more filtered water and avoid dairy and wheat as preparation. We also suggest a supplemental magnesium product called Oxy – Powder. Take 2 before bed each night to help draw water into the colon and promote the muscle activity.​

7. Why do prepaid packages not have a refund policy? What if I don’t like the treatment and only want one?
We accept your payment after your first session so you’ll know whether or not you want to return.

8. What will happen after the treatment and can I work, will I leak?
It’s best to arrange to go home after your first session. That way you can relax and take it easy. Most of us have strong enough muscles to heed the call and get to the toilet without leaking. After cleansing, do not trust your gas…it could be wet.

9. Why so many treatments?
Most people are dehydrated and overwhelmed. This procedure is about relaxation and hydration. It may take several months or even years for us to re-pattern old habits ad cleanse the entire 30’ of tubing from mouth to anus.

10. If I go three times a day why do I need colon hydrotherapy?
If we eat, drink and breathe, we are processing toxins. A typical colon hydrotherapy session may help release several quarts of fecal matter, quite a lot more than we release in a day.

11. I have not had a BM for several days. Will this solve my problem?
We’d need to know more. It certainly will help if there is a long term back up. We’ll talk about the causes and what you can do to help prevent this from happening.

12. If I do an oral colon cleanse why do I need a colonic?
Cleansing by taking oral products can be very harsh and irritating to the gastric lining. We usually discourage the ingestion of herbal and over the counter products that will force the waste through too quickly; creating dehydration and cramping. They also work when they want to, without any warning sometimes. The colon hydrotherapysession is a gentle, relaxing experience of warm, filtered water soothing and relaxing the colon as it tones the muscles. Very big difference.

Through my training I have learned the importance of nutrition. Cooking methods, processed food, chemicals and hormones have all affected our diets and our toxicity levels. Pure Beauty & Wellness Studio is committed to helping clients understand their personal nutritional needs which is why complementary nutritional counseling is offered with all Colon Hydrotherapy Treatments. Our goal is to help our clients achieve optimal health and vitality.
During your appointment we will discuss what foods you are ingesting and in some cases make suggestions where you can improve your diet so that your digestion will function better. There are also many simple and natural tricks that you can do to help your body function better, for example adding fresh lemon to your water can help to balance your PH levels.
Rather than only focusing on flushing toxins out it is also important to realize what toxins are going into your system. To achieve ultimate health it is a balance of both giving your body what it needs and removing what it doesn't. The combination of good diet and regular cleansing will give you a huge positive shift in how you feel and function.

If you are hoping to cleanse we will choose the most appropriate cleanse based on your needs and goals. You will receive full daily support guiding you through each day on what to eat, drink and results to expect and avoid re - toxifying and becoming overwhelmed so that you achieve maximum results.

As you detox your organs release toxins into your gut for exit out your body, however toxins slow your GI tract and if your colon is already slow or compacted it is likely you will get more constipated and compacted leading to the possibility of re-toxifying, as the released toxins are now trapped.As 80% of your immune system is in your gut, a compromised colon can lead to lowering your immunity and many people discover there health becomes is far worse after a cleanse. In addition constipation and compaction will also affect the bacteria balance in your gut, leading to gas and bloating. Our mood enhancers are all made in your gut so your your serotonin levels and therefore your mood can be effected which is why some cleanses if not properly prepared can be very overwhelming.Re-toxifying is something that every person cleansing should be very conscious of and the key to avoiding it is choosing the right cleanse for you and making very sure that your colon keeps moving and doest get stuck.

We are here to help gently guide you through your cleanse so you get the most effective and positive results, leaving you feeling healthy and rejuvenated with the right direction for continuing your diet in a more productive nutritional balance. ​

If the client has no major symptoms or history of chronic constipation, by all means, they may use this protocol to prepare them for the colonoscopy procedure.  The usual oral prep will not be necessary when this protocol is followed.

NO CARBONATED BEVERAGES, CAFFIENE DRINKS OR ALCOHOL during this protocol!

We schedule our clients for colon hydrotherapy once per day for the three (3) consecutive days prior to the colonoscopy procedure with their medical doctor.  Ideally, the third session is set for first thing in the morning just prior to the colonoscopy on DAY THREE as described below:

DAY ONE: Upon rising, drink 1 quart of warm, filtered water with juice of one half lemon.  Take 2 Oxy Powder capsules available from our office…call the number below. Proceed with first colon hydrotherapy session.
Eat small snacks throughout the day consisting of meat free, dairy free, wheat free foods including:
Pureed soups, mashed potato, mashed sweet potato, mixed salads, avocado, smoothies made with fruit and greens like apple/spinach, pear/chard, romaine/papaya in blender with water.  Add 1 tablespoon ground golden flax meal to smoothies and sprinkle on salads and soups. 
Mid-day, take 2 more Oxy Powder capsules on an empty stomach with warm lemon water.
Drink a minimum of 2 quarts of filtered water per day at room temperature, adding fresh lemon will be helpful.
Before retiring, take 4 Oxy Powder capsules with warm lemon water.

DAY TWO: Upon rising, drink 1 quart of warm filtered water with juice of one half lemon.  If bowel release is not runny and large, take 5 Oxy Powder capsules.   If it is like a big diarrhea that fills the toilet bowl, take only 2.  In either case, proceed to second colonic session. REMEMBER, we are also moving waste from the small intestine down into the large intestine for removal.  There’s always more!
ONLY clear liquids all day:  herbal tea and clear broth made from vegetables or clear chicken broth, ok to drink Emergen-C powder in water to keep electrolytes in balance and energy even. 
Drink a minimum of 2 quarts of filtered water per day at room temperature, adding fresh lemon will be helpful.
Mid-day take 2 Oxy Powder capsules with warm lemon water.
Before retiring take 4 Oxy Powder capsules unless the diarrhea is uncontrollable.  In this case, just take 2 more.

DAY THREE:​ Schedule final colon hydrotherapy session for first thing in the morning then travel directly to doctor for colonoscopy procedure.
It is vitally important to be very gentle with the bowel after the colonoscopy.  This is an invasive procedure. We suggest you return to the DAY ONE program of soft foods for at least 2 days so that the bowel may return to normal function.  If there has been no bowel movement for 48 hours after the colonoscopy, we recommend another colon hydrotherapy session to normalize bowel function and help cleanse the anesthesia from the body.

Detoxification of the Colon allows all of the cells throughout the body to restore, leading to improved nutrient absorption. This strengthens the immune system and permits other organs of elimination (skin, lungs, liver and kidneys) to operate more effectively. Colon Hydrotherapy is highly recommended for anyone looking to feel and live healthier. Flushing toxins out of your body combined with better nutrition, hydration and exercise can be a life changing experience. Colon hydrotherapy can help hit the reset button and get you back to feeling great! 

Diet and herbal cleanses are a great way to release toxins from your organs into your digestive tract for elimination, however these toxins can also block the colon preventing elimination and causing you to re-toxify so those toxins leak back into your system and go right back to the organs that just released them. Flushing the colon is key to lowering your toxicity level and the most effective way to cleanse your entire body and allow it to thrive. Once your digestive tract is flushed all your other organs will naturally start to release the toxins they are holding, making your cleanse even more effective.
