The Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment and Procedure

A Therapeutic Effect is one of the few centers in the Greater Lancaster County and York County areas that offers closed-system Colon Hydrotherapy treatments.  We use FDA “cleared” equipment that is safe, hygienic, and thorough.  
  • Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your first scheduled appointment to fill out a comprehensive medical history.
  • Please allow an hour and a half for your first visit and one hour for each subsequent visit.
  • Your therapist will take you back to the treatment room to review your medical history and carefully go over pertinent details of your history.
  • Your therapist will then go over in detail the colon hydrotherapy procedure and therapeutic application.
  • Treatment time on the table lasts around 30-45 minutes depending on your body’s response to treatment.
  • After treatment, please feel free to continue with your regular day.  You may notice an increase in urination throughout the day due to your colon’s absorption of water during treatment.  You may not have a bowel movement for several days due to the thoroughness of the treatment.
