You will wear a full-length cotton gown and lie on your left start. The clinician inserts a sterile cannula into the rectum. Attached to the instrument are two tubes: one allows body-temperature water into the colon and one allows outflow of water and waste. When the clinician closes the outflow tube, the instrument directs the water into the body. When you feel as if you have to eliminate, the clinician opens the outflow tube and the water and waste flow out through the outflow tube. It is a "closed system" which means all waste flows through tubing and directly into the building's main plumbing waste line. Several minutes into the procedure, the clinician will have you change position and lie on your back. The clinician may do gentle abdominal massage to facilitate the movement of trapped gas or waste while you are on your back until all five feet of large intestine have discharged waste at which point they will have you return to your left side. If things go as they should, you will then visit the rest room and expel anything still remaining in the colon, which is often little or nothing. You should leave our office feeling lighter, cleaner, clearer and free to walk the streets without the fear of needing a restroom. Often the client has no bowel movement the following day as they have eaten lightly the day before and day of the session and the colon is much clearer afterward so it may take a day for bowel activity to resume normal daily movement.
