Colon Cleansing: Why You Should Do It!
You’ve heard about it and probably considered it, but there’s never been a better time to take action regarding your health than now! Tummy Temple offers colon cleansing to help you do just that. We provide a highly beneficial colonic therapy, also known as colon hydrotherapy, amongst many other health treatments to help you achieve optimal digestion and elimination.
Doctors worldwide have recognized the importance of gut health and bowel care for disease prevention. Significant health improvements have been seen in individuals doing regular colon cleansing.
Our signature spa-level colon cleanse session includes intake, 45 minutes of table time, the use of essential oil blends, and a therapist summary of the session. Colon hydrotherapy is provided using a closed system with a practitioner in the room at all times during the session.

Understanding The Colon Cleanse Procedure
There are numerous ways to clean the colon naturally through juicing, certain foods, enemas, and other at-home methods. However, undergoing colon hydrotherapy has proven to be very effective in achieving results over a shorter period of time and maintaining those results for longer.
During a colonic, a speculum is introduced into the colon via the rectum, and triple filtered water is gently introduced. This internal rinsing process lasts about 45 minutes, and the client can return to daily activities after that.
Types of Colon Hydrotherapy
At Tummy Temple, we currently offer closed colon hydrotherapy systems, and we are excited to announce that the open colon hydrotherapy treatment will be available in the late fall of 2022. Both are highly effective ways of cleansing the colon. Contact us today to help you choose which one is the best fit for you.
Closed Colonic System
This conventional method of colon cleansing is popular because it assists trained professionals who apply techniques to improve the efficacy of the treatment. All waste is contained via disposable tubing that includes a speculum that is gently inserted into the rectum by the practitioner.
Many clients prefer this method as they can relax while an expert practitioner listens to how they feel and adjusts their session as needed.
Your practitioner can provide abdominal manipulation to increase your comfort during the colon cleansing session, report what they are seeing, and give helpful suggestions to address any concerns.
People with more complicated digestive or detoxification health needs usually prefer this system.
Open Colonic System – Coming Soon!
The open system offers clients who need less consultation and assistance with their digestive health care concerns. The bed is form-fitting with a basin set into the middle upon which clients rest. It uses a pencil-thin tube that the client can comfortably insert themselves. Due to the way the open system colon cleansing works, the practitioner does not need to be in the room during the entire procedure but can safely monitor the session while offering the client more control and privacy during their experience. This is an excellent option for those utilizing colon hydrotherapy for preventative health reasons.
