What makes Colon Hydrotherapy at NSM different?
Comprehensive Initial Intake & Vital Functions Assessment
For those clients who are new to colon hydrotherapy, our therapists understand that the first time may seem intimidating, and that clients may have some anxiety before their first session. We understand that the client's safety and comfort is of the utmost importance, and thus we are available to answer any questions or concerns potential clients may have before their first session. In addition, our therapists/ staff conduct a comprehensive initial intake and vital functions assessment to ensure that each candidate does not report any contraindications that would preclude him/ her from safely proceeding with a session.
For those who need a little extra reassurance, our therapists work closely alongside Dr. Fong, our in-house naturopathic doctor, for consultation as needed or for more complex cases. For clients who are existing patients, Dr. Fong may provide a prescription and specific recommendations to the practitioner to enhance their current treatment program and further personalize the colon hydrotherapy session. This synergistic relationship between the doctor and practitioner enables the team to provide a collaborative effort toward holistic healing.
Mind Body Connection & Restorative Atmosphere
The therapists' approach and understanding of the mind-body connection, the unique atmosphere, and integrative elements truly make colon hydrotherapy a one-of-a-kind experience at NaturalStart Medicine. Our practitioner truly attends to the client's comfort and strives to provide an atmosphere of relaxation and rejuvenation with ambient lighting, soothing music, guided meditation, a compassionate, safe space to release emotionally as well as physically, essential oil aromatherapy and application, and soothing and comforting bodywork. Some clients even report that receiving a colon hydrotherapy body rejuvenation session at NaturalStart Medicine is "the most relaxing part of their day."
Our therapists stay attuned to each client, using bodywork in areas that need attention. By working the body meridians and reflexology points, it can help to stimulate the bodily functions to work in conjunction with the colonic session, opening the gates for more release.
Amethyst Crystal BioMat/ BioBelt
In addition, the session is enhanced with the use of an amethyst crystal BioMat and BioBelt, which is a combination of far infrared rays, negative ions, and the conductive properties of amethyst channels; this helps to relax the muscles and increase local circulation...and on cold days, the heat simply feels divine. The negative ions delivered through the mat may help to combat the detrimental effects of positive ions by repelling the positive ions and breaking up congestion within the lymphatic system.

Other potential benefits as indicated by the Richway International manufacturer include: pain relief, immune system boost, reduced stress & fatigue, hormonal balance, removal of toxins, and rejuvenated skin cellular functions.

Implants & Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage Add-On
For clients who are candidates and who desire an add-on service or implant to optimize the effectiveness of the colonic session, bio-electric lymphatic drainage (BELD) therapy and/or implants are also available.*
*Please understand that any added services or implants are done at the request and discretion of the client, and that Adrienne is not a physician or licensed practitioner who prescribes such services and/ or implants. For clients who are not patients of Dr. Fong, implants can be done with a prescription from your doctor.
Although there are no symptoms as a direct result of colon hydrotherapy, colon cleansing can sometimes stimulate the release of toxins from the body, which can result in detoxification symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and/ or fatigue. However, every experience varies from client to client. Some clients report less constipation, more regular bowel movements, an emotional release in conjunction with their physical release, and/ or an increased sense of well-being and overall health. For all clients receiving services, we recommend hydrating well after sessions to help aid in the detoxification process.
