What is the purpose of getting a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment? 

Waste that lingers in the large intestines/colon over time poses several problems. Just like a pipe in your sink drain, your colon accumulates debris over the years. Examples of accumulated waste are impacted feces, accumulated mucous, dead cellular tissue, parasites and worms, etc. This toxic material can re-enter the blood stream causing you to feel ill, tired or weak. A buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action (peristalsis) causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation, thin, misshaped feces and many resulting disorders. The removal of stagnant waste material and hardened, impacted toxic residue could rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides in the intestines.

Is Colon Hydro-Therapy Safe?

Yes! Thousands of colonic sessions have been performed safely internationally. Colon Hydro-Therapy should be received by a certified therapist using disposable tubing. The water is filtered and pressure is low. The Colon Hydro-Therapist is always with you and will keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout the duration of the session.

What does the Colon do in the body?

The colon's job is to absorb electrolytes and water, synthesizes vitamin B & K via natural flora, and preparation and storage of fecal waste prior to elimination. The colon, skin, lungs, and kidneys are channels of elimination of toxins and waste. Irregular bowel movements lead to toxic build-up. These toxins have the potential to reabsorb into the bloodstream, ultimately being carried to other tissues and organs of the body. This cycle of events are largely the cause of more serious health issues. Death begins in the colon.

Will I be embarrassed?

Hear at Kinkamache', we strive to provide personal service to each of our clients by ensuring the modesty and respect. You, as a client, will be draped at all times. The Dotolo closed system means that the waste removal goes through the pipes that lead to the sewer system. There are no waste or odors to experience.

Do you take walk-ins?

Although same-day appointments are honored, Kinkamache' currently does not accept walk-ins. Appointments are needed to prepare for each client properly.
