La Verte Wellness Spa’s personal colon hydrotherapy method is a safe and effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened, loosened, and evacuated through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated several times during the session. Please see our FAQ section, below, for additonal information. Also, please view our disclaimer here: http://lavertewellness.com/?page_id=15
The Closed-In System Difference:
At La Verte, we use a Dotolo Toxygen closed-in system, a state of the art colon hydrotherapy device, which affords a comfortable procedure while maintaining the dignity of the client/patient. This system is therapist-assisted for effectiveness, comfort, and most importantly, safety. La Verte’s therapists implement specific abdominal massage, bodywork and/or Young Living therapeutic-grade aromatherapy oils to assist you in your cleanse. All sessions include one disposable speculum. If, for some unforeseen reason, your session requires two disposable speculums, there will be an additional $5 charge added to your bill. Additionally, La Verte does not cut corners when it comes to your health and comfort; we use all organic and therapeutic-grade oils, salves and soaps. The bedding is heated, using organic cotton sheets, and the soap we use to wash our linens is non-toxic and fragrance-free.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Also known as “colonic” or “colon irrigation”, colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of “waste material” by a repeated, gentle flushing with pure, triple-filtered water.
What is the purpose of having a colonic?
“Waste Material”, especially waste that has remained in the colon over some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, intestinal parasites) pose several problems. First, this material is toxic to the colon. These endotoxins, or internally produced toxins, can potentially reenter and circulate in the blood stream, which in turn, makes us feel tired and ill-feeling. Second, impacted waste impairs the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-producing vitamins. And finally, a build-up of waste on the colon wall may inhibit muscular contraction (peristalsis) causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation.
What are some common symptoms of a toxic colon?
Intestinal toxemia is very common, especially in the United States where we lack in good nutrition and consume large quantities of processed food. Symptoms include: gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, skin disorders, “brain fog”, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, and joint and muscle pain.
What are the benefits of having a series of colonics?
There are a multitude of benefits from receiving a series of colonics from a trained colon therapist. While the lungs, liver, skin, and kidneys serve our bodies in detoxification, the cleansing of the colon greatly reduces the stress to these organs and the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Hence, the benefits are: Toxins are expelled increasing absorption and elimination; also, increased energy, mental clarity, a feeling of “lightness” and general well-being, rejuvenated immune function, decreased sugar cravings, and vibrant clear skin; in addition, better sleep, better ability to cope with stress, less stress and anxiety, and body self-awareness.
Are colonics safe?
The answer is yes. A colonic is given using FDA-registered equipment with factory-sealed, disposable speculums (small tubes). Cleaning and sterilization is performed on all equipment and fresh, clean linens are given to every guest of the spa.
Does a colonic hurt?
No a colonic does not hurt. In fact, some people find it to be relaxing as the colon expels waste; however, as natural peristalsis (smooth muscle contraction) occurs, you may feel the urge to defecate with mild cramping due to the elimination of liquid and waste into the rectum. The feeling is usually well-tolerated and passes quickly. Your therapist will be with you to assist in a gentle massage of the abdomen to assist in expelling the waste quickly.
Is it embarrassing to have a colonic?
No. Your personal dignity is upheld at all times. You will be in a private, spa-like room with your therapist, who can appreciate the sensitivities of your treatment and will work to make you feel at ease. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you will be completely covered. In addition, there is a small hose that delivers purified water into the rectum and a waste hose that expels all the waste material in a gravity pressured system. Any mess or odors associated with an enema do not exist with a modern colonic.
What should I do to prepare for my colonic?
No special preparation is necessary, although it is recommended to eat and drink lightly the two hours preceding your colonic. Your first initial experience with colon hydrotherapy will reflect your current state of health; the state of hydration of the bowel and generally, the body’s efficiency at eliminating waste.
*Through experience, I find that my clients who are eating organic whole foods, juicing, supplementing and exercising, often have better results with their colonics. This is definitely a guideline, highly recommended, if you’re pursuing a holistic lifestyle and want to get the most benefit out of colon hydrotherapy.
Does a colonic flush out all my good intestinal flora?
No. In fact, expelling all the putrefied waste from the colon allows for the re-colonization of good bacteria in a clean environment. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment, which has been washed free of putrification and its accompanying bacteria. To start this process, we recommend a quality, therapeutic-grade probiotic supplement and the consumption of plain, organic yogurt or keifer.
What can I expect after my colonic?
After your colonic you will feel a sense of lightness and overall well-being. It can, quite actually, be life-changing for most people! Not infrequently, especially after your first few treatments, you may experience subsequent bowel movements over the next few hours, so you may want to be close to a bathroom. Other than that, your normal routine can resume.
* It is advisable to allow your body to rest after a colonic. This further assists the cleansing process.
