About Colon Hydrotherapy(Colon cleansing)

Colon Hydrotherapy is a therapy in which a large amount of precisely controlled sterile warm water is directed to the back of the intestine, where it massages the depths of the intestine and removes feces and other impurities.
Colon Hydrotherapy practiced at, Tsushima Ruriko Women's Life Clinic, has superior benefits to enemas and other home use treatments.
There is also a training effect that restores the "body's own work" which cannot be done with enemas at home,
eliminating the feeling of stagnation of the abdomen and gas accumulation and discomfort. In addition, since vital functions are restored, health, beauty and stress relief can be greatly improved.

Colon Hydrotherapy was used by the late princess Diana and today is used by many supermodels.
It has recently attracted attention as a pretreatment for colonoscopies. Maintain a beautiful intestinal environment and restore your health and beautiful healthy skin.

Main Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy

Decreased in Constipation and Diarrhea
  • Large amount of hot water directly stimulates the large intestine, thereby activating the slow-moving intestine.
  • The burden on internal organs is decreased because waste products and built up feces which has been stuck in the intestine for a long time are removed.
  • The accumulated gas is also excreted by the massage during Colon Hydrotherapy (Colon cleansing).
  • The inside of the intestine, which may have been hardened by regular use of laxatives, is softened again.
  • So called, “bad bacteria,” which proliferated, in the colon are washed away, allowing for an improved colon environment where good bacteria can grow easily.
Improvement of Rough Skin and Dullness
  • As the metabolism improves, it reduces troubles such as skin spots, acne, rough skin and other skin irritations. It also helps to decrease the effects of aging.
Recovery from Fatigue/ Improvement of Physical Condition
  • Colon Hydrotherapy (Colon cleansing) may help to reduce the incidences of colon cancer and breast cancer, which are believed to be closely linked to excessive constipation.
Weight Control and Diet
  • Improves constipation that occurs from diets with restrictive food requirements.
    Colon Hydrotherapy (Colon cleansing) can help in an effective diet.
