Marie Dauphin is an experienced colonic therapist, certified by the wood hygienic institute.
Colon Hydrotherapy, or Colonics, is a colonic irrigation used to eliminate waste, gas, and toxins using warm, filtered water to cleanse and empty the colon. Alivio Wellness offers The Woods Gravity Method for all colonics. This method uses gravity instead of machines to control the water pressure entering the gut for a more gentle and effective experience. It is a closed system, meaning the water and waste that exit your body will leave through a tube. And, most importantly, you will have a certified Colon Hydrotherapist with you throughout the entire session. Sessions are typically about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Your Colon Hydrotherapist will be monitoring the flow of water entering and exiting your colon and will perform abdominal massage techniques to help aid in elimination.
There is nothing quite like that after-colonic feeling. The benefits are truly endless and include:
Eliminating constipation: Receiving a colonic is like going to the gym for the bowels. During a session, we activate and exercise the internal muscles of the digestive system resulting in improved frequency and a reset to restore the system to a healthy schedule.
Eliminating bloat: We will clear excess waste and toxins built up in the colon to prevent bloating and distention. Doing this will also result in optimal nutritional absorption from the foods we eat.
Glowing skin: The skin is our largest detoxification organ. When we hold excess waste in the intestines, it begins to circulate out toward the skin, resulting in acne, blemishes, and rashes. Releasing the burden of retained waste allows the skin to clear up and glow.
In preparation for your treatment, please stop eating 3 hours before your session and stop drinking liquids 1 hours prior.
For extra prep (optional), have 16-32 oz of raw vegetable juice daily and accompany each meal with a large green salad for 1-2 days prior to your appointment. This should be done on an empty stomach, preferably in the morning. If possible, please also avoid dairy, refined starches and heavy meat dishes.

Following your session, you want to slowly activate your colon by starting with water and ideally moving on to raw vegetable juice for the first 1-2 hours. The first solid food should be plant based, not over cooked or processed and after giving your body that 2 hour break. This will allow your body a moment to integrate the benefits of the treatment and continue the cleansing process. From there on you should be ok to eat your normal meals again.
