Closed Vs Open System Colonics

A short comparison of 'Closed' & 'Open' System Colonic Irrigation

Open System

The client lies on a specially designed fiber-glass table/bed.
After demonstrating to the client how to position themselves on the bed the therapist leaves the room, providing total privacy for the client whilst undressing.

The client gently inserts the small 'pencil thin' rectal nozzle just 1 inch into the rectum.

The device in designed to prevent further than necessary insertion.
The client then covers themselves with a modesty sheet, rings a bell for the therapist to enter and starts the therapy together.

The therapist starts with a gentle flow of gravity-fed, warm purified water through the rectal tube & into the clients colon.
When the client feels the sensation to have a bowel movement they simply push out in the position they are in.
The rectal nozzle automatically moves to one side within the rectum allowing the softened faecal matter to flow around the inserted nozzle.
The water and waste flow down a 1 meter clear viewing tube to the left of the client.

The therapist remains for a few bowel movements on the first session, or until they feel necessary for the client to relax and fully understand the procedure.  
Once the client becomes familiar with the Open System, the client can have total privacy during treatments.

Closed System

The client lies on a bench / massage table.
The client usually lies on their left hand side whilst the therapist lifts the right bum cheek to insert the speculum and helps the client back onto their back.  
The therapist always inserts the speculum into the client's rectum on this system.
The speculum used on a closed system is much larger than one used on an Open System.
It is usually the thickness of a 20 pence coin and 2 - 4 inches in length.

**See below pics of nozzle examples used on both systems**

A pressurised stream of water is then delivered through the attached hose & into the colon.  When the colon is filled & pressure reaches maximum levels the therapist manually drains the colon back through the same hose which is attached to the speculum inserted into the client.  The client can only pass waste big enough to pass through the 20 pence thickness speculum.
Water pressure & temperature within the colon must be monitored constantly to avoid leakage or perforation, requiring the constant attention of the therapist.  The therapist sometime massages the clients abdomen whilst manipulating the flow of water in and out of the client.
