Colon Hydrotherapy FAQ's
Colon Hydrotherapy is often referred as to colonic irrigation, colonics, colon therapy, or high enemas. Colon Hydrotherapy uses safe filtered, temperature-controlled water for inner cleansing. A small thin tube is inserted about 1- 1.5 inches into the rectum which allows the water to gently enter the colon, softening and loosening the waste matter and toxins, which stimulates the body’s peristaltic action allowing the waste matter and toxins to be evacuated.
The Angel of Water’s advanced design now brings elegance, simplicity and dignity to colon hydrotherapy. The Angel of Water surround, a gravity-fed open design, is the premier colon hydrotherapy system and is the first choice for hospitals and clinics around the world. The Angel of Water is the safest, simplest and most effective solution for irrigating the colon.
The Angel of Water system of colon hydrotherapy allows you to become in tune with your own body and be in control of the water during your treatment. A fully qualified therapist will instruct you how to self-insert the small sterile tube. Once the treatment is underway the therapist does not require to be in the room with you throughout your entire treatment, which means a greater level of privacy. The therapist will check on you throughout the treatment for both your comfort and safety and you have access to them at any time by pressing a call button.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a great way to assist the body to eliminate accumulated waste and detox and is a great preventative measure. Many Colon Hydrotherapy clients report that they have an increase in energy, clearer skin and a flatter tummy. Colonics can also assist people with overcoming symptoms of constipation, diarrhoea, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, stress, over processed diet, headaches, migraines, back pain, haemorrhoids, parasites, skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, colitis, arthritis, diverticulosis, depression, intestinal distress and irregularity of bowel movements. By cleansing the colon we give the body the conditions it needs to allow the it to come back into homeostasis (balance) and therefore have the opportunity to correct the imbalance, whatever that may be.
At Coastal Cleanse, we pride ourselves on our high professional standards. Your dignity and privacy are respected and maintained throughout your treatment. Most Clients find Colon Hydrotherapy quite comfortable and relaxing, although some discomfort or cramping may be felt by some clients depending on the level of impaction of the colon. These cramps help to strengthen and tone the colon, kind of like a gym session for your bowel! Many people report that they find their colon hydrotherapy session both refreshing and relaxing.
Some clients consider it a good time to have a session since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will not interfere with the success of your session. However, some ladies prefer to wait until after their period is over to do a cleansing session.
This is a very common question. Colon Hydrotherapy will remove both beneficial and non-beneficial bacteria from the colon. Since most people have predominantly non beneficial bacteria in higher ratios in the gut, beneficial bacteria can be increased afterwards with the use of probiotics and a healthy diet containing fermented and probiotic foods. At the end of your session you will be offered a probiotic drink to begin the replenishment and growth of beneficial bacteria immediately after your session.
The colon is as long as you are tall and can store up to 5 kilos of impacted waste, so there is a large amount of area to cleanse!
Everyone has very different health needs, so it’s a great idea to take advantage of our no obligation free 15-minute consult so you discuss your personal health goals.
The Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy system we use at Coastal Cleanse is an open system of Colon Hydrotherapy. It is a modern, state of the art, gravity fed system. You will have your own private treatment room and the therapist will instruct you on how the Angel of Water system operates and how to self-insert the small rectal tube in privacy. Once treatment is underway, the therapist will check on you regularly during the session for your own safety and comfort and you have your own call button to call them in at any time.
The closed system is an older style colon hydrotherapy system, where a therapist is with you in the room throughout the entire treatment, inserts the larger rectal tube (speculum) for you, and is in control of the amount of water flowing into your colon. Whilst there are merits to both systems, our clients find the open Angel of Water system a far more comfortable treatment and feel that they can be more in tune with their own body throughout the treatment.
A Doctors referral is not necessary prior to your Colon Hydrotherapy treatment, however if you have health concerns and wish to discuss Colonics with your doctor, it is wise to do so. Colon Hydrotherapy is not recommended in conjunction with certain medications, if you have had recent surgery, or have been diagnosed with conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, anal fissures, acute liver failure, intestinal or rectal tumours, lupus, aneurysm, diverticulitis, abdominal hernia, or severe haemorrhoids.
Your treatment may be more comfortable if you refrain from eating at least 2 hours before your scheduled appointment time. For best results we suggest a diet of healthy fruits and vegetables and at least 2L or water per day in the few days prior to your treatment. Avoiding red meat, processed & fried foods, sugar, wheat, caffeine & alcohol can also be highly beneficial.
The most common responses from our clients are that they feel clean & light with increased energy and a feeling of wellbeing. However, depending on your current state of health and level of toxicity, some people can feel tired and lethargic after a treatment. Both responses are normal depending on what going on with your body at the time.
During your Colon Hydrotherapy session, you expel a large amount of waste, so it is completely normal not to have a bowel movement the next day. Once your digestive system has moved digested food through your system, bowel movement should return.
Please read our aftercare information for all information you will need for after your colon hydrotherapy session.

Oxy Chi Machine FAQ's
The Oxy Chi Machine produces a relaxing rhythmic motion throughout the body, alleviating stress and muscle tension while loosening the spinal column.
The rhythmic motion is core driven producing a balanced energy wave through the body. The motion replicates exercise in that it promotes the flow of lymphatic fluid and oxygenated blood to all areas of the body.
Energy and Detoxification are improved, oxygenation, enhanced lymphatic circulation and abdominal peristalsis.
- Improved Circulation and Oxygenation: The Oxy Chi’s wave like motion stimulates circulation, enhancing the oxygen carrying capacity of blood, delivering nutrients to where they are needed, activating cells and stimulating metabolism. Oxygen is essential to all organs of the body and promotes health and wellbeing.
- Healthy Joints and Muscles: The swaying motion of the Oxy Chi exercises and relieves tension in joints and muscles, especially the hips, back and neck. Many people experience relief of headaches, back pain and muscle tension.
- More Energy: Improvement in oxygen and nutrition to cells and removal of toxic wastes increases mitochondrial activity (energy production) within muscle and nerve cells.
- Relaxation: Using the Oxy Chi is a very relaxing experience, it is effortless and at the same time invigorating.
- Lymphatic Drainage and Detoxification: Improved circulation and oxygen absorption assist the removal of acids in the body. Lymphatic drainage aids detoxification and stimulates the immune system.

- Spinal and Nerve Balance: The Oxy Chi helps strengthen and relax the muscles around the spine, promoting a natural realignment and movement of the vertebrae resulting in healthy nerve impulses to all internal organs.
- Weight Loss: Many people report weight loss while using the Oxy Chi. This may be due to a number of factors, including improvements in fluid balance (via circulation and lymphatic drainage) as well as the gentle aerobic effect which improves metabolism and fat burning.
