FAQ

Colon Hydrotherapy

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is the gradual and gentle introduction of filtered water into the colon. We use the closed system, FDA registered HYDRO-SAN equipment, ultraviolet and oxygenated filtered water.

What can be expected from a colonic?
Many clients have reported: more energy; a feeling of ease; clearer skin and eyes; a mental clearing of sharpness or ability to focus more easily; increased elimination through kidney, skin and bowel;  relief from gas and bloating; and a toned, better working bowel, which as a result, upgrades our general feeling of good health.

Why should I use colon hydrotherapy?
The colon’s main function is the elimination of body waste. We experience health when the colon is clear and normal.

What is a colonic session like?
First and foremost, our clients’ modesty and dignity are maintained at all times. During a session, most clothing can be kept on, and the client is draped or may wear a gown. Our rooms are completely private and clean. The therapist begins by massaging the abdominal area to encourage the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release waste. The slow inflow of warm, filtered water through sterile disposable tubing begins. Then, through the client’s breathing, the waste is released through the tubing without smell or mess. This process is repeated several times without discomfort.

How many colonic sessions does one need?
Of course, how many one needs depends upon the individual, and every individual is different. The colon therapist will be able to assess what is suited for one’s needs during the initial visit, which is the consultation.

How do I prepare Colon Hydrotherapy?
Our clients have found that optimal results are achieved when following a particular dietary regime prior to their appointment.

The day before and the day of Colon Hydrotherapy:

AVOID:
Legumes, including hummus, lentils, or other beans and nuts. Carbonated beverages, including soda or mineral water. Gaseous foods, including eggplant, cabbage, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Fried or oily foods, including fried chicken and Chinese stir fry. Alcoholic drinks, meat, cheeses, and white flour products.

ADD:
Steamed vegetables and brown rice. Raw salads and fruit. Soups; including miso, chicken, and vegetable.
It is important to increase water (8 – 10oz. glasses) the day before. Consume less the day of the appointment. DO NOT EAT TWO HOURS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT.
If possible, it is suggested to schedule a reflexology or massage appointment the day before or the day of the colonic appointment to aid the body in relaxation and help with the release of toxins during the colonic appointment.


Medical Esthetics

How does Botox work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften.

How is a Botox Procedure done?
Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.

How Long Does a Botox Injection Last?
The effects from Botox will last three to four months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.


Your Wellness Experience

How do I practice Mindful Silence?
Our wellness center is a healing environment of tranquility and relaxation, so please respect yourself and others’ right to peace and quiet. Kindly turn off your cell phone. Keep conversation to a minimum. Come to the present and be mindful that this is our time to relax and renew in this sacred healing space.

How do I practice spa courtesy?
To ensure that you enjoy the maximum benefits of your experience here at Hudavi, please arrive ten to fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. Arriving late will shorten your treatment, cheating you of your precious minutes of relaxation. If you do arrive late, your appointment will be charged full price and end on time in order to ensure the next appointment isn’t delayed.

What do I wear?
For Thai Massage and Reflexology treatments, it is recommended that you wear loose comfortable clothing and slippers. During other spa treatments, our practitioners are trained to drape you discreetly while being mindful of protecting your privacy, so clothing is optional under the sheet for massage and skin care treatments. Of course, you may wear undergarments if that allows for a more comfortable experience.

What preparation do I need before I wax?
Allow 3-4 weeks between waxing treatments or until hair is at least a quarter of an inch long. This is required for bikini, legs and underarms. For bikini waxes, including Brazilian, hair longer than an inch should be trimmed so that waxing is more comfortable. Female clients may experience heightened sensitivity to waxing during or just prior to their menstrual cycle.

What if I have a medical conditions or allergies?
When booking an appointment, please notify our Spa Coordinators about any physical or medical conditions including allergies to allow us to further personalize your treatment if possible. Special conditions such as pregnancy, heart conditions or physical injuries should be mentioned.

What If I'm a Moms-to-be?
It is very common and beneficial for new moms to visit our spa for treatments during their pregnancy. For your safety, we ask that you please wait until you are at least 13 weeks into your pregnancy before receiving any full body massages. Thai Massage and Deep Tissue massage should be avoided due to the deep pressure. Please notify our Spa Coordinators of the great news to ensure that you have the ideally customized experience at Hudavi. As always, please consult your doctor for any other questions or concerns.

How do I prepare for Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a branch of ancient Chinese medicine that treats many conditions including diseases, drug or alcohol addiction and sinus problems by stimulation of needles to directly manipulate a network along 12 major pathways or energetic meridians, connecting specific internal organs with energetic points on the network. Acupuncture regulates, or disperses Ki (also referred to as Chee, Chi, Ki, Qi and Qui), the vital life energy that animates all living organisms and results in a correcting and rebalancing of Ki to relieve pain and restore health.

How do I prepare for Eastern Medicine
Eastern Medicine is a broad term for Oriental, Indian, Tibetan, Japanese, and Chinese medicine, all of which share philosophies about the energy system of the human body and the necessity of balance and harmony. Practitioners are trained to use a variety of ancient and modern techniques for diagnosis and treatments.

How do I prepare for Herbal Therapy or Botanical Therapy?
