Is this performed by practitioner or self-administered?

The Angel of Water unit is a gravity system. The tank itself holds 12 gallons of water of which the water is released in a controlled manner at about .50 PSI. When you sit on the unit you will self-insert the lubricated rectal nozzle about an inch into the rectum and then place the drape modestly over yourself. I come back into the treatment room and we start the colonic. You push a button which starts the water flow and if you need to stop the flow at any point you can control that. I monitor the entire colonic. The waste goes into a viewing tube that water is flushing through...that then goes into the plumbing in the building. This system is very high-tech and was designed for doing medical prep. I massage the abdomen and work it during the session between releases...I also may work colon acupressure points in the foot as you may be in a reclining position on the unit and your feet are easy for me to access. (if you don't mind) This system is fabuous, for many years I used the Dotolo Toxygen which is a closed system whereas the Angel of Water is an open system. With the closed system I found it wasn't ergonomic for the patient and the patient was always afraid of a blow-out or mess on the table. With the Angel of Water their is absolutely no odor in the room as it has a great filtering system built into it. On the closed (Dotolo) the patient would have to get off the table and go sit on a toilet if nothing (stool) was moving through the tube OR too gassy etc. With the Angel of Water the patient never has to get off the unit to go sit on a toilet as it is built into the unit. After working with both systems, hands down the Angel of Water through Lifestream is easier on the patient and the practitioner. My longtime patients having been on both system absolutely LOVE the Angel of Water. So the unit itself administers the water as do all colonic units but the practitioner facilitates the session. I'm a bit of a taskmaster having facilitated 1000's of colonics over 13 years and get a sense of your peristalsis and if I can help stimulate peristalsis do so, through abdomen massage or foot reflexology. Karina, if you have other questions, please advise. Hope to see you soon!! Dr. Deb
