At UP Wellness Spa, we believe in the harmony of beauty and wellness. Our med spa in University Place, WA offers a holistic approach to rejuvenation, including gentle and effective colon hydrotherapy sessions.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is a safe and proven method of cleansing the colon. It involves the gentle infusion of purified water into the colon to flush out accumulated waste, toxins, and impurities. This centuries-old practice has been embraced by modern medicine for its numerous health benefits.

At UP Wellness Spa, we go beyond aesthetic services and offer treatments to boost your health and inner beauty. Our colon hydrotherapists are highly qualified certified specialists. The Libbe is an FDA-approved medical open colon hydrotherapy device. It gently delivers purified, filtered water through a client-inserted rectal nozzle. The sterile nozzle is inserted 1”- 1.5” and is immediately disposed of after the session. Colon cleansing was first developed in the 1500s. It is a safe and effective way to eliminate waste matter while hydrating the colon.



Each client is assured a private room and a comfortable, relaxing experience throughout the session. There is no smell or mess because of Libbe’s ventilation design and the interior design of each room. The usual colonic irrigation lasts 30-45 minutes. During the session, you are always covered for your privacy.


We provide detailed instructions on inserting the rectal nozzle, and all questions and concerns are answered.


A toxic bowel or leaky gut is the source of many health problems. Colon cleansing activates the body’s self-healing processes, thereby allowing more efficient waste elimination and nutrient absorption.





Both are essential to a lasting rejuvenation process. This is also the first step toward normalizing the colon, so friendly bacteria can return, keeping the colon safe and healthy.

Hydrotherapy removes excess waste material and toxins that have built up in the colon. This waste buildup causes unhealthy toxins to re-enter the bloodstream and lymphatic system. This can cause one to feel fatigued, weak, and ill. A leaky gut can cause inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a precursor to many ailments and health conditions. Cleansing the colon allows normal muscular contraction and the return of normal gut bacteria. The colon is an essential organ of elimination and vital in detoxifying the body as a whole.

The Colon Hydrotherapy session will cleanse the entire five feet of the large intestines through water integration that softens and releases buildup on the intestinal wall. Traditional enemas will only clean the colon’s lower portion, including the descending and sigmoid colon regions. Laxatives often encourage muscular contractions, which help the body eliminate waste. However, they do not soften or effectively remove buildup from the intestinal wall and can have short- or long-term side effects.

Libbe is an FDA medically approved device with numerous safety features such as regulated temperature and pressure controls as well as multiple sterilizations of the water via carbon and sediment filters and UV light filters. Additionally, all disposable items used for each individual session are one-time use, sterilized materials that are discarded appropriately following a hydrotherapy session. The equipment and room are cleaned with the manufacturer-required sanitizers and disinfectants.

Colon hydrotherapy eliminates all bacteria from the colon, including both beneficial and harmful bacteria. However, it also creates an environment that encourages the reestablishment of good bacteria that will replenish safely and quickly. Consuming proper foods or a probiotic will foster the growth of good bacteria while deterring the bad bacteria from growing.

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective preparation for a routine Colonoscopy. Most commonly, it is recommended that two colon hydrotherapy sessions be completed on back-to-back days and as close to the Colonoscopy as possible. It is always encouraged that you speak with your physician about this method of preparation for your procedure prior to.








The colon hydrotherapy session is fairly low maintenance with little required preparation. It is recommended that you avoid eating two hours prior to the appointment time. This allows for most of the previously consumed food to pass from the stomach to the small intestines, where the excess pressure on the abdomen will no longer create nausea or discomfort. 

Each individual may experience slightly different reactions physically. The level of toxins an individual carries is based upon a variety of factors, both internal and external. Most individuals report feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after a session. Other individuals experience the session more like a workout at the gym. It is important to remember that colon hydrotherapy is just that, a workout for the large intestine’s muscles. Once your muscles recover from the workout, the resulting feelings are often positive and energizing.

Each session will vary based on the individual. The goal is detoxifying the body which is performed by responding to the body’s natural responses. Once situated on the device, a session lasts anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Each session is adjusted to the individual and the duration is ultimately determined by the body. It is recommended the client be prepared to spend 60-90 minutes at the wellness spa on their first visit to ensure enough time for a thorough consultation, health history, and a question-and-answer session.

Most commonly, people do not describe colon hydrotherapy as painful. An individual may experience cramping or nausea associated with toxic releases. However, these symptoms pass quickly. Clients are provided the scent of lavender or peppermint oil and instructions for self-abdominal massage. Most often, people will describe feeling refreshed, revived, and energized once they have completed the session. 

Following a colon hydrotherapy session, you may carry on your daily activities, although it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise. However, it is important you follow the directions and recommendations of your therapists, allowing your body enough time to drain completely of excess water. Once the colon rids itself of excess water, most people report feeling energized and lighter. 

After a colon hydrotherapy session, it’s important to be mindful of what you eat to support the healing process. It’s recommended to consume easily digestible foods such as steamed vegetables, soups, and broths. You may also want to incorporate probiotics into your diet to support gut health. It’s important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and herbal teas to flush out any remaining toxins. Your doctor can provide more detailed information specific to your needs.

Once you have completed a colon hydrotherapy session, it is important to follow some recommendations and guidelines to ensure optimized results.


You have just treated your body to a wonderful, healthy detox, and now we want to make sure that you feel your best over the next few days and maintain your results as long as possible.


Drink plenty of fluids such as pure water, juices, herbal teas, and electrolyte liquids. It is also suggested you drink Kefir products to restore your intestinal flora.


Stick to this suggested diet: Eat healthy soups for up to 24 hours after your appointment. For up to 3 days after the appointment, limit your overall meat intake and only eat easy-to-digest foods such as cooked vegetables and soft fruits (banana, mango, etc.). It is recommended you supplement your diet with a Probiotic. We offer a variety of Probiotics in our HerbalLife store!


If this is your first colonic, it’s recommended you receive another one within a week and optimally two times in two weeks to jumpstart your detox goals.
