Unstuck: Day Spa Promotes Colonic Detox


One spa has found a useful way of treating skin conditions from the inside out. 

The Mornington Day Spa, in Victoria, Australia, uses colonic hydrotherapy along with other medical supervised spa treatments, day spa retreats and medical skin therapies as part of its holistic four pillars of health program tailored to meet client requests.

Another Way to Cleanse 

“When waste material has accumulated in the colon over a long period of time, it can break down and become toxic," said Sally Shaw, M.D., owner of The Wellness Manor. "The body responds by slowing down other functions, causing constipation and sluggish bowel movement and this can affect all the other systems of the body."

Shaw continued: “The process of aging and disease involves the body becoming more toxic and more acidic with time. When the blood stream is overloaded with toxic waste, the body will function on a lower level and the process of ageing and disease will increase. A colon cleanse is an effective way to remedy toxic build up in the body."

According to Shaw, colonic irrigation involves the safe introduction of warm water into the colon via the rectum. Colon hydrotherapy should not be painful, though an impacted colon can cause discomfort with some cramping as the colon contracts to expel waste, she said. “Once the major impaction is removed, the sensation can even be pleasant.”

The benefits of colon hydrotherapy include: detoxify and remove toxins increase energy levels assist in weight loss Increase hydration of the colon improve skin conditions. These sessions usually last approximately 40 minutes.
