At Oasis Life Spa, we believe that true beauty, total well-being and vibrant health are derived from how we maintain our internal environment.

Oasis Life Spa brings a reassuring approach to the ancient practice of colon hydrotherapy (once known as colonic irrigation). We merge this natural approach to cleansing and detoxifying with the state of the art technology and professional therapists who genuinely care and respect your individual needs.

We work alongside traditional and alternative health practitioners, sport coaches and fitness trainers who understand that by detoxifying the body using a course of colon hydrotherapy, other complementary therapies tend to have much better efficiency. We devise the best cleansing program depending on the needs of the individual.

Understanding how precious and rare relaxation time is, Oasis Life Spa’s serene and tranquil ambiance was specifically created to ensure our clients the utmost privacy and total comfort.

When the body is in balance, every part works in harmony and supports the whole being to live more.

Unfortunately, most of us today lead hectic lifestyles where we are constantly inundated with the daily demands, stresses and pressures of work life and home life, combined with lengthy working hours, lack of rest, low water intake, not enough exercise… often it seems we are even too busy to go to the bathroom! Yet we take these daily occurrences for granted and live with them through the years without giving the effect on our bodies a second thought. To this we add travel to exotic destinations, where we expose our bodies to foreign foods and all that comes with it…. Not surprisingly, toxins begin to build up affecting our tissues and cells.

When the body needs rebalancing, the accumulated toxicity often manifests itself through one or more of the following parts of the body:

  • colon: resulting in constipation, diarrhea, spastic colon, atonic colon, sluggishness, flatulence, hemorrhoids, abdominal bloating, intestinal Candida, various parasites
  • other elimination organs
  • lungs: causing asthma, halitosis (foul breath)
  • skin: provoking eczema, psoriasis, sallow complexion and other skin problems, e.g. acne
  • liver and kidneys: increased toxicity, sluggishness, pain

Pathologies of congestive origin can also be linked to toxicity (headache, migraine, ear, nose and throat blockages, sinus problems, as well as allergies), where the body no longer tolerates certain substances.

Emotional toxicity as well as physical toxicity can manifest itself in various ways: the solar plexus is the emotional centre of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left uncompleted, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus, which affects all organs in the area, including the colon. This on-going tightening of the colon muscle results in diminished movement of fecal material through the colon, which is known as constipation: This can result in: depression, lethargy, anxiety and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

A course of colon hydrotherapy treatments combined with sensible eating allows the body to detox thereby achieving the following positive benefits:

1. Cleansing of the colon and other elimination organs, thereby relieving symptoms associated with toxicity

2. Exercising of the colon muscles: Because of the continuous inflow of water and subsequent release during the treatment, the body naturally uses the colon muscles to evacuate waste matter, providing a more gentle release. At the same time, the peristalsis (action of the muscles of the colon) is greatly stimulated and this acts as an excellent workout for the colon, therefore providing relief from constipation, spastic colon, and/or atonic colon.

3. Reshaping of the colon: An abnormally shaped colon regains its natural state through the gentle action of the water, coupled with the therapist’s massage techniques;

More specific conditions, like bloating, linked to period pains and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may also be relieved through colon hydrotherapy.

Allergies are often a manifestation of internal imbalance. Colon hydrotherapy combined with good nutrition and exercise can greatly help to relieve these symptoms.

Colon hydrotherapy may additionally prove beneficial in the rehabilitative treatment of drug (prescription and narcotic) and other addictions, via the periodic flushing of the chemical toxins out of the body, combined with a properly devised addiction recovery plan.

The recognition of rebalancing your system is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Once the internal system is in balance, most of our clients experience a renewed sense of vitality and a remarkable feeling of joy and elation which many may not have enjoyed for a long time...

“Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the intestinal system. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and the tissues. It is the intestinal system that has to be cared for before any effective healing can take place.” - Dr. Bernard Jensen


Your colon is at the core of your wellness. Hydration (water), minerals and some nutrients are all absorbed through the colon wall and fed to your body. It is also one of the biggest eliminators of waste that our body has (along with lungs, skin, etc). Therefore if the colon is not at optimal level (or functioning properly) and you are not assimilating and eliminating efficiently, your body is not functioning at optimal level. When our bodies are no at their optimal level, you will find a decrease in your immune system, dis-ease, health problems etc. It would be like saying "how important is the engine in a car?"

Most clients remark on how comfortable it really is. You are in a quiet, dimly lit room. You have a privacy drape. The insertion is passive. The elimination of waste feels like a bowel movement…at the worst it may feel like an urgent bowel movement.


It is best to wear a separate top and bottom. So that you just remove the bottom piece to be covered with a drape. Always wear something comfortable.

Leading up to the colonic, drink water, eat fibrous food and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Abstain from drinking to much water right before the colonic…so you will not have to go to the bathroom during the colonic.


Nearly all therapies and wellness activities are complementary to colon hydrotherapy and amplify their benefits. From Lymphatic Drainage, Massage Cupping and Body Sculpting, Massage, Reiki, NIA and/or Yoga...just to name a few.

The physical side:

  • De-tox of impurities and waste build up
  • Cleansing of the blood and other organs
  • Removal of the thick layer of mucosal plaque
  • Possible weight loss
  • Hydrated skin, nails and hair (yes, less wrinkles)
  • Improved colon muscle tone
  • These are just a few examples
Emotional perspective:
They say that your emotional trauma is held in your cellular structure (meaning your tissues and organs). Ever heard the saying "issues in my tissues"? Colon hydrotherapy assists in the cleansing of impurity build-up in your body, i.e. organs and tissues. Thus cleansing of your body, through colon hydrotherapy, could lead to cleansing of old trauma and stored negative emotions

Spiritual perspective:
When the body is clear of all it physical and emotional toxicity, the spirit is truly free.
