Tips & Advices
How many colonic irrigation sessions are usually needed?
The number of colonic irrigation sessions needed will depend on the overall health of the colon, as well as one's overall health goals. If there is a short-term goal, such as relieving constipation, a therapist may be able to provide an idea of how many sessions it will take to achieve the desired result. If there is a broader goal, such as boosting overall health and vitality, it might be helpful to make monthly or bi-monthly colonic irrigation sessions a part of one's routine.
How long does each colonic irrigation session take?
On its own, a round of colonic irrigation typically takes about 45 minutes. But plan on at least an hour total to account for getting undressed and other preparation. The first session could last as long as 90 minutes, since the therapist will need to complete an intake procedure to assess the client’s medical history.
