Yes. No pressure is used and the client is free to get off the table whenever they choose.
How many sessions would I need?
A treatment plan will vary from individual to individual. The practitioner (Philomena or Diane) will discuss the client's goals and needs with them during and after their first colonic and work with what is best for them.
Do the treatments hurt?
No. The client is never asked to"hold water" or "tell me when you feel full."
Hence, the colon is never stretched and blown out. The client is in control all the time and the session can be stopped whenever they choose.

The night prior to your scheduled appointment, try to stay away from eating heavy, dense meals and alcohol. We recommend you do NOT eat or drink at least one hour prior to your session.
Will I experience any discomfort or fatigue after the session?
Usually not, but since the cleansing will stir up alot of old debris and toxins, you might experience some minor fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. A mild vegetable broth or peppermint tea is soothing. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
