Do you suffer from regular bouts of constipation? Are you feeling bloated or have indigestion? You may benefit from a colonic, or colon cleanse. Dr. Lora Hurley at Hurley Wellness & Hyperbaric Center in Kannapolis, North Carolina, offers colonics to improve health and wellness. Call the office today, or use the online booking button to schedule your colonic.

What is a colonic?

A colonic cleanses your colon to improve health. Your colon, also referred to as your large intestines, is a hollow tube that absorbs water from food waste, and it holds until you have a bowel movement.

Like many people, you may think that having one bowel movement a day is normal. However, when stool sits in your bowel, your colon may be overexposed to the toxic substances it’s trying to get rid of. A toxic colon can lead to a number of health problems.

Ideally, you should have a bowel movement as many times a day as you eat to prevent your toxic stool from sitting too long and creating health issues. 

Why would I need a colonic?

Dr. Hurley may suggest a colonic after you come in for a consultation. A toxic colon not only causes bowel pain and indigestion but may also cause other symptoms, such as:

  • Frequent headaches or backaches
  • Skin problems
  • Lowered resistance to infection
  • Fatigue, insomnia, or irritability
  • Edema or swelling
  • Low sex drive
  • Loss of memory or depression
  • Food allergies
  • Weight issues, such as overweight or underweight
  • Body aches and pains
  • Frequent yeast infections, athlete's foot, or jock itch
  • Lack of energy 

Just like it takes time for these symptoms to develop, it also takes time to reverse the damage. To improve your health and wellness, Dr. Hurley may suggest a series of colonics to help restore balance.

What can I expect during a colonic?

Hurley Wellness & Hyperbaric Center uses Colenz®, a revolutionary FDA-approved colon cleansing system that’s both safe and gentle, and gives you the privacy you need. Your colonic may take about 30 minutes.

To perform the cleanse, you, the patient will administer your own tube, no bigger than a pencil, in your rectum, and then run water through the system and into your colon. The insertion process is extremely easy and our staff is here to assist if needed. Dr. Hurley reviews how to use Colenz and, when you’re comfortable with the process, has you conduct your own colonic. The instructions for how to use Colenz are clearly posted too, so there’s no need to worry if you forget a step.

The Colenz is equipped with a water fan spray from both sides of the basin, which continually washes away your feces as it collects at the bottom of the basin. Once you’ve completed your colonic, the feces is inspected and may be tested for parasites or bacteria.

What is the Colenz Unit?


The Colenz® colon cleansing device is a FDA Class I non-prescriptive system. 

The client receives a very effective cleanse on this device because the person is lying virtually flat, allowing the water to flow around the entire colon without the counter forces of gravity. During a 30 minute session the client will be flushed with up to 15 gallons of water. Dr. Bernard Jensen was involved in the design of the angle of the table and the rate of water flow. 

To schedule your colonic, call Hurley Wellness & Hyperbaric Center, or schedule an appointment using the online booking button.



    The Colenz® is a gravity-fed device. The water gently hydrates the colon through a flexible rectal nozzle that is ¼” in diameter. There is a one-way check valve between the nozzle and the water tubing to prevent the back flow from the nozzle. The Colenz® has both a warm (98° to 102°) and a cool reservoir. There is no temperature control valve or gauge on the device but water from the two reservoirs can be mixed to reduce the temperature of the water from body temperature to a cooler flow as the client desires. 

The Colenz® is an open device allowing the body to evacuate naturally.

Larger solid pieces can be eliminated without having to fit through a speculum.

The rectal nozzle is locked in place and moves to the side when the client eliminates the waste matter.

The nozzle cannot be over-inserted into the colon because it is locked into the scoop on the catch basin. 




The unique design of the Colenz® allows the elimination of odor with a fan that forces the smell down the sewer without a separate venting system. The entire procedure is virtually odorless

The water temperature is regulated by a thermo control valve (equipped with back-flow valves) that is mounted on the wall close to the device. This is not part of the enema system. Once the water temperature is set, the client does not have access to adjust the temperature. Warm and cool water are delivered to the device with flexible stainless hoses.

The Colenz® is the most comfortable and effective device available.
