Colon Hydrotherapy Equipment
The LIBBE Colonic Equipment is a “State of the Art" Colon Hydrotherapy System. It is very safe. The equipment is from the United States and has US Government Food & Drug Administration’s [FDA] Approval for safe use with the public. Thus it meets the highest health, hygienic & safety standards in the western world.
The LIBBE Colonic experience is generally very comfortable and relaxing. Privacy & Dignity is always maintained.
The treatment is Odourless, as all odour is removed by the in-built extraction fans.
The rectal tube is Pencil Thin and is supplied as a single use, sterile, disposable item.
Water for Colonic Irrigation passes through a UV light filter and then it’s passed through an Ultra Carbon filter. These filters will remove 99.9% of all the micro-organism from our city’s water supply. So the water for irrigating the colon is highly purified and is regarded as safe by the United States Government’s Food & Drug Administration or US-FDA Committee!
The water temperature range is between 35 to 40 degrees celsius. This can be under your total control, if you desire and can be adjusted to meet your personal temperature preference. The average body temperature is around 38 Degrees Celsius. The LIBBE system is equipped with a temperature cut off mechanism to ensure safety.
The pressure of the water is very gentle, as it is gravity fed and hardly more than a continual trickle.
You can also view the waste being eliminated via the perspex Viewing Tube. We will explain and help you to understand what’s happening inside your body and bowel through analysing and viewing the waste passing through the View Tube.
What Happens During A Colonic Hydrotherapy Session?
After completing your health questionnaire and having a brief discussion with your therapist, you are taken to the therapy room and the system is explained to you fully. During your session, you lie in complete comfort, on your back, on a semi reclined, customised and cushioned, LIBBE colonic bench.
Your privacy and dignity is always maintained throughout the session. You will be left alone to prepare. Clothing remains on the top half of the body, while the lower half of the body will be kept covered by a blanket. So, ladies, it is best to wear two separate pieces, rather than a dress for your session. As the LIBBE Colonic equipment utilises the superior open system, only a small, pencil thin nozzle is required. You can gently and easily self insert this tube just 2-3cm into the rectum in private before calling the therapist back into the room. They will then knock on the door and re-enter the room. The blanket stays covering you throughout the treatment session.
Once you are on the system, there is never any need to get up from the LIBBE bench to go and use the bathroom. The LIBBE is essentially a toilet and so there is no need to move from your relaxed position. The bench itself is sloped, so there will be no mess, all waste is contained and controlled. You can remain semi reclined and relaxed throughout your entire session.
The aim of the colonic water is to irrigate and dissolve away any dehydrated, impacted and toxic waste inside the bowel. As the water increases in volume in the bowel it stimulates the bowel muscles to contract and you will then release the water, along with the toxins and waste at regular intervals. This regular stimulation to the colon muscles to eliminate throughout the session exercises, tones and strengthens these muscles to support your long term ability to maintain good bowel regularity.
When the water is being released, it will also carry with it any dissolved mucous, plaque lining the bowel walls, parasites, negative bacteria, dead cells, used metabolites and any other toxic waste that has accumulated in the bowel over a lifetime. Both the water & waste drop down into a well where it then runs along a clear perspex tube (you can look if you want to) and out to the city sewage system.
For personal comfort, you can regulate the water temperature and flow during your session or, if you prefer, this can be controlled and monitored by your therapist.
Your therapist is there mainly to comfort, guide, inform, relax, and support you throughout the sessions. They can show you how to massage the abdomen and large intestine in order to stimulate bowel movement. This will help you get the best results from your session.
Your therapist will happily answer any questions you may have. They will explain to you, how to visually analyse the waste and what affect this waste has on your body, mind and wellbeing. While we cannot diagnose any health issues, there is much that can be deducted about your health from both discussion with you, and observation of what is eliminated.
