At Towns we have discovered that adding a Castor oil pack for 10 to 15 minutes prior to the actual colonic greatly increases the ability for patients to relax and let go of their waste. Castor oil is massaged into the abdomen and moist heat is then applied. Castor oil is anti inflammatory and stimulates the bowel to release more fecal matter during your regular colonic treatment and will halt any possible cramping. Castor Oil packs are an excellent complement to your Colonic Hydrotherapy.
