Thank you for considering Alder Healing Center for your Colon Hydrotherapy services. Colon Hydrotherapy (also called colonic irrigation, or colon cleansing) is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine. By introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This restorative process is intended to cleanse trapped impurities.
I trust you will find your time here educational and that you experience being well cared for. The method we use is a closed system which means the therapist is in the room with you the whole time. After reviewing and discussing your health history information and review how the session is going to go it is then time for us to get started. Once you are set up and ready, the water filling part of the session begins, you will experience a very gentle continuous filling and then releasing. During this time we cover any additional questions, conversations and possibly watching a couple of videos that are educational and inspiring.
What to know and be prepared for:
- No eating 1 to 2 hours before your appointment. You may maintain your normal daily activities before and after your session.
- Be sure you are sipping your water throughout the day.
- Most guests experience a sense of lightness and energy after their session; there is a small percentage that might find they are a little tired after their experience. This is all normal and natural. Everyone comes in with different goals, concerns and issues so everyone’s experiences will vary.
- Again, after you’re colonic you should be able to resume your regular activities.
Muscle Testing/Applied Kinesiology
Based on the concept of internal energy fundamental to traditional Chinese medicine, muscle testing is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body’s responses to herbs and other remedies.
Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet, hands and head utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques with or without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.
The benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium.
Reiki is the combining of universal energy with individual energy to open pathways of healing. This healing method involves placing the hands on or just above the body in order to align and bring healing energy to organs and glands. The Reiki treatment does not interfere with religious belief. Shellie is a Christian and believes it is God’s energy that works through her.
Healing Touch is an “energy therapy” that uses gentle hand techniques thought to help re-pattern the clients energy field and accelerate healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
Healing Touch is based on the belief that human beings are fields of energy that are in constant interaction with others and the environment. The goal of Healing Touch is to purposefully use the energetic interaction between the Healing Touch practitioner and the client to restore harmony to the client’s energy system.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
EFT is a simple yet remarkable healing system that reduces the stress that underlies much disease. It has proven itself successful in many scientific studies. It works on a variety of health issues, psychological problems, and performance issues, even those that have been resistant to other methods. EFT works by tapping on designated meridian points to relieve physical and cellular memory.
Meditation is a beautiful way to gain access and insight into learning and knowing who you really are; body, mind and spirit. It’s an amazing way to be enveloped in a sacred space of unconditional love and to get connected to all parts of who you are. You will learn and experience limitless expansion and growth; bringing balance and connection to yourself.
There are many ways to experience mediation. Most of our meditations are not experienced quietly; we may incorporate sound, voice, visuals, and experience scent, indoors or outside. Meditation is a wonderful way to assist you in becoming free from stress, anxiety and pain; leaving you in a place of peace, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.
Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body’s predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.
House Blessing & Cleansing
It is the act of using various energetic and spiritual means to work with, raise, clear or release energy from a physical place to create an environment that is refreshed, safe and pleasant. Energy can be felt. It is sometimes referred to as “vibe” or “atmosphere”. Cleansing and blessing a physical space can bring it into alignment with the intention you have for it, will make it feel better, be more comfortable, and improve the quality of your life in that space.
It is especially useful if you are buying or selling a home or are starting something new. It doesn’t matter whether you personally work with energy consciously or not, the “atmosphere” of a place will be felt regardless. What you are intending to create and experience can be effected not only by what you are physically doing but by the “flavor” of the surrounding or residing energy.
Blessing and cleansing can also help bring the energy of a place back to it’s original essence, letting the land’s own natural power flow.
