Colon Hydrotherapy

Take control of your gut health.

“Your gut is fundamental to your overall health.  Your body's totally dependent upon what you eat, digest, and absorb.  Correcting gut health while receiving colonics can help heal nearly every ailment.”

Dr. Mary Simon, ND

What's a colonic?

Colon hydrotherapy (a colonic) is a gentle and effective treatment to irrigate and cleanse the colon using purified water.  Colon health is fundamental to overall well-being! When the colon does not work properly, waste backs up and solidifies in the intestines, causing constipation, gas, and other symptoms throughout the entire body.


Your colon is designed to absorb water, concentrate and eliminate the stool by having a bowel movement, which should happen after every meal, or at least once daily. If this doesn't happen, toxins get reabsorbed into the bloodstream and wreak havoc system-wide-- symptoms result such as:

  • headaches

  • fatigue

  • brain fog

  • poor concentration/memory

  • skin issues- acne, rashes, eczema, etc

  • sinus congestion

  • indigestion

  • PMS

  • muscle/joint pain

  • edema/swelling

  • low sex drive

  • depression

  • bad breath

  • irritability

  • ... and so much more!


Colonics are an efficient way to cleanse the colon, encourage detoxification of the body, and feel better overall.

Colon Hydrotherapy with a Naturopathic Doctor

At Thrive, you can be assured that your initial colon hydrotherapy appointment will be with one of our Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine who have additional training and certification in colon hydrotherapy. We are the only facility within 90 miles that offers colonics with a naturopathic doctor! We do this to ensure quality medical advice and guidance with your first appointment and so that you have a clear plan moving forward.  


What’s included in the initial consult?

The initial colonic appointment is scheduled as a 75-minute appointment. This includes a consultation, colonic, and recommendations.  During the consultation, the colon hydrotherapist will go over the process as well as any health concerns or goals you may have. Next, you will receive your first colonic.  The duration of the treatment may vary, as each person’s experience is unique and afterward you will have time to use the restroom and continue to release what the session loosened up. Lastly, the colon hydrotherapist will make individualized lifestyle and supplement recommendations.

Do I need "down time" after the colonic?

You should be able to resume your normal day after the colonic.  In fact, we have many people who come on their lunch break and go right back to work afterward. 


What are the benefits of getting a colonic?

They say “all disease begins in the gut”. Healing the gut can be an effective way to prevent and sometimes even reverse unwanted symptoms and/or disease. Additionally, an overaccumulation of waste can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body. Ridding the body of this waste can stimulate detoxification, an essential mechanism for optimizing your health. Some common health concerns that colonics can help with include constipation relief, unwanted weight gain/loss, mental and emotional health, bacterial or yeast overgrowth, and overall detoxification. 


Does it hurt?

Prior to the session, our colon hydrotherapist will go over the process to ensure that you’re fully aware of what the process entails and that you’re comfortable with it. You are in good hands with our very experienced therapist! There is very minimal discomfort during the insertion. During the colonic, especially if it’s your first time, you may experience discomfort initially. Most often this is from the release of gas pressure built up in your colon over time. Once this subsides or is released, the process should be comfortable. 


What is the setup?

The colonic setup is a closed system and there is no mess involved. There is one section of the tubing that is luminated for the colon hydrotherapist to walk you through what she’s seeing, but it is optional to look. The water used in the colonic procedure is purified and kept at a comfortable temperature.

How many colonics will I need?

Typically, if you're doing colonics for anything other than health optimization... for example if you have digestive issues, the first colonic will just start to loosen up walls of gas a caked on fecal material.  You will most likely be recommended to schedule a series of 4 or 6 colonics while implementing a few supplement and dietary changes, for the most sustainable results.

Does any of this sound familiar?


  • “I went to the doctor and they told me to do a laxative purge… but it didn’t help.”

  • “I’ve tried so many over-the-counter medications, but pooping shouldn’t be this hard.”

  • “Even when I have a bowel movement, I don’t completely empty my bowels, it still feels like there’s more stuck in there.”

  • “I’m constantly uncomfortable because my stomach feels like a rock.”

  • "I just want to poop easily without having to strain."


  • “People think I look 5 months pregnant but I’m not.”

  • I’m so uncomfortable after eating, these gas pains are awful.”

  • “It’s so embarrassing being at work and having stinky gas, I’m mortified in front of my clients and coworkers.”

  • “I’m sick of having a food baby."

  • “It’s not fair to my family that I’m missing out on important moments because I feel absolutely miserable after eating."


  • “I’m ready for a cleanse, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.”

  • “I want to do an internal reset, a chance to clean up my diet and focus on healthy habits.”

  • “I just feel so ‘blah’ all the time, and I want to feel vibrant and alive.”

  • “I have all these pesky non-specific symptoms like headaches, joint aches, and acne, and I’d like to feel well.

  • “It’s time that I focus on myself with long-overdue self-care.”

You aren't alone. We can help.

Watch a colonic!

How many colonics will I need?

If you're like most of our clients and you suffer from digestive issues like constipation and bloating/gas, one colonic will just start to get things moving and will provide some instant relief. 


However, to get long-term sustainable relief you will be recommended to do a series of 4 or 6 colonics close together, while implementing some lifestyle and supplement recommendations. 


Your colon is about as long as you are tall, and every foot can hold about 10 pounds of waste.  Each colonic, when done close together, will allow the gentle warm water to enter further and soften/loosen caked on putrid fecal material. 


A series of colonics will give you the best results!

For overall health optimization/wellness for those who don't have gut issues, or after completing a series, monthly colonics are an amazing way to regularly cleanse, reset, and re-focus on your health.

Yesterday, I had a chance to experience a colon hydrotherapy session with Dr. Mary Simon. My experience was nothing short of AMAZING! I felt so relaxed and knew that I was in good hands during my session. The service was exceptional from the time that I booked my appointment until the end of my appointment. Dr. Simon took her time explaining the process and what to expect.
