The Power of Colon Hydrotherapy!

Our Colon Hydrotherapy page offers information on making appointments, individual and package costs, FAQ's, our Health Questionnaire and more so that you may have an excellent colon hydrotherapy session.

Colon Hydrotherapy Preparation for

We now offer you Colonoscopy Preparation using Colon Hydrotherapy. More hospitals and doctor's offices around the country are offering colon hydrotherapy for colonoscopy preparation. Please see my Colon Hydrotherapy page for the protocol.

“A major deterrent to patients receiving a potentially life-saving colonoscopy is the difficult pre-procedure preparation. Colon hydrotherapy is not only gentler, it is as good or better at cleaning the colon than traditional methods.”

"As an alternative to some of the intolerable bowel preps for colonoscopies, Barton Health purchased a colon hydrotherapy system in March. Colon hydrotherapy is a method of cleansing the entire colon using warm, filtered water. Hydrotherapy has shown to be more effective and better tolerated than the standard methods of bowel prep for colonoscopy."

“The procedure is quite easy and painless for patients,” said Barton's G.I. nurse. “All of the patients who have experienced colon hydrotherapy have been very pleased with the procedure.”
Barton’s GI nurse has performed more than 2,000 colon hydrotherapy procedures throughout her career."

The purpose of the course is to inform students of the central role the gut plays in overall health and how dysfunction in the gut leads to Metabolic Syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome is a worldwide pandemic and students learn causation and solution. We present new research on the structure and function of the gut and related viscera.

Specific conditions associated with Metabolic Syndrome such as obesity, eating disorders and autoimmune disorders are examined so that the student is more clinically effective with clients. The role of the endocrine and nervous systems, inflammation and the microbiome are explored.

The manual therapy teaching is a balance of Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) massage and craniosacral therapy. Contact with acupressure points are blended with contact on cardiovascular and fascial structures. As a long-standing colon hydrotherapist, Sheila demonstrates her foundational abdominal massage. Techniques and protocols are demonstrated to immediately integrate into clinical practice.

Cost: $595 for both courses

Location: Sheraton 5151 East Grant Rd Tucson AZ 85712 520-323-6262
