How to prepare for your session
We find that our clients have better results the better hydrated they are. If you know yourself to be chronically de-hydrated, most of our clients have reported that drinking as much as a gallon the day before their session, gives the body time to absorb and assimilate the water. Do not wait to drink all of your water until the day of the session, because if your bladder becomes full during your session, you may experience discomfort.
Please be sure to eat something nourishing the day of a session (unless you are under a doctor’s care and/or fasting). Eating a meal 2 – 4 hours before your session is ideal. Do not eat or drink anything within two hours of your session.
48-hour Cancellation Policy
Payment is expected at time of service. Appointments not canceled at least 48-hours prior to scheduled time will automatically be charged to your credit card and/or subtracted from your package series if you choose to purchase a package. We cannot proceed with your colonic session if you are more than 15 minutes late, and you are financially responsible for that “missed” appointment.
We ask our clients to honor our therapist’s time and not dispute our cancellation policy. If your schedule is unreliable and you know there is a possibility of you not keeping an appointment with us, please do not make the appointment. We suggest you call us for last minute availability to avoid being charged for a missed appointment.
We generally call to confirm your appointments two to three days in advance to give you an opportunity to cancel before the 48-hour period. If for any reason, you do not receive a confirmation call, you are still responsible for the appointment you made. Our confirmation call to you is meant as a courtesy call only.
Cleanse Chicago and our Associates do not prescribe (order for use as medicine) for you at any time. Colon hydrotherapy is only for the removal of waste from the colon and has no scientifically proven medical benefits. The therapist is simply helping you with natural hygiene at your request, and is not diagnosing nor treating disease, nor practicing, nor prescribing any form of medicine. Cleanse Chicago does not claim that colon cleansing, nor supplemental material that we provide or speak of, will cure any condition or that its purpose is to treat and/or prevent any condition.
All clients of Cleanse Chicago agree to fully and honestly disclose their health history, and therefore take full responsibility for their health, and will alert their therapist if their health status changes.
All information you provide us is private & confidential. We do not share your personal information without your explicit and written permission.
If you are currently taking medication for any condition, prescription or not, you may want to check with your doctor before using any colon cleansing device. If you have ever been diagnosed with any intestinal condition or have taken any medication that can weaken the intestinal walls you should check with your Primary Health Care Provider before colon cleansing.

If you are not sure if ear candling is safe for you and your specific symptoms, seek out an Otolaryngologist to receive a proper diagnosis.
New Client Information
All new clients must arrive 30-minutes before their appointment time to fill out their initial paperwork. It would be irresponsible for us to proceed with any session without a full disclosure of your health history.
Cleanse Chicago authorizes a valid credit card to hold initial client’s appointment. Company policy does not allow anyone to reserve our therapist’s time without a credit card.The authorization is a verification there are funds in the account, in the event that the client fails to show up for their initial appointment. The verified funds will then be post-authorized and the charge will be completed. An authorization of a debit card freezes the funds in your account. Due to the lack of access to these funds, we suggest you use a credit card instead of a debit card. Once an authorization has been processed, it cannot be reversed. The funds are held at the discretion of your bank. The authorization can be held from two to four weeks depending on your banking institution.
Do not eat anything raw (such as a sushi or salad), spicy, or rich (heavy sauces) after a colonic. You want to pamper your system with light and easy to digest food. Good examples would be grilled or steamed vegetables, light proteins such as chicken or fish, or soups (no cream bases). Avoid alcohol the day of a session.
What to Expect
Most people report feeling energized and lighter after a colon hydrotherapy session. On very rare occasions, it is possible to get a headache or feel tired. There is no reason for alarm, sometimes drinking more water and taking a nap will help alleviating these symptoms.
It is perfectly reasonable to go about your day in a normal fashion after a colon hydrotherapy session. Some people attend a yoga class. They find they can move more freely and unencumbered after a session. If it is your very first session, we recommend you stay close to a restroom. If nothing happens after fifteen minutes, you should be fine for the rest of the day.
The administration of a colon hydrotherapy session reaches the entire 5-6 foot length of your colon. Because of this, it may take 2-3 days after your session for you to eliminate on your own. Certain body types may eliminate prior to that time period.
The promotional value of all colonic packages expire 3 months from your last appointment. We do not recommend package purchases if you do not plan to receive colonic sessions on a seasonal basis. Package refunds are available within 30 days minus a $25.00 processing fee. Package refunds will not be given after 30 days from date of purchase.
