Colon cleansing therapy is thought to date back as far as ancient Egyptian times. Archeologists have found evidence in papyrus writings indicating methods for cleansing the colon. Cleansing the colon has been around for centuries.
Today, modern research also shows that cleansing years of built-up waste from your colon can be helpful, and even prescribed by your provider, in certain situations. Rock Solid Health uses sophisticated and modern equipment, and in the office we use what’s known as the Angel of Water Device, considered one of the best Open System Devices in the country, known for its safety, sophistication, and sterilization. These attributes make your cleansing a super easy and safe process!
Colon Hydrotherapy is beneficial for a number of reasons. Colon Hydrotherapy is a recommended cleansing protocol when preparing a patient for a radiological or endoscopic procedure, for an impacted colon, severe constipation, and it has additional benefits that come along with the cleansing that are good for your overall body.
Safety and Side Effects
Colon hydrotherapy is offered upon a visit with your provider and a valid prescription. We then take that prescription and make sure you are seen quickly and efficiently.
As with many therapies, some side effects are possible. However, at Rock Solid Health, side effects are minimized with the help of professionally trained staff, superior equipment, and following perfected protocols. Such quality services ensure a safe and beneficial cleansing experience.
Very rarely, a client may encounter mild dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, discomfort, and cramps. All of our staff here at Rock Solid Health are regularly trained on advising our clients when this occurs and we are here to help.
Rock Solid Health is dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality of Colon Hydrotherapy services using the Angel of Water Premier Open System Device! Colon Hydrotherapy also known as colon cleanse and colonic is a gentle cleansing of the large intestine eliminating the contents of the bowel.
Our Angel of Water Premier Open System is an FDA-cleared medical device. Our system can be used before an endoscope examination. It is alternative to the traditional oral prep before a colonoscopy.
The traditional way to prepare for a colonoscopy is no fun. Being chained to your bathroom for two days can be inconvenient and exhausting. That’s why Rock Solid Health in Round Rock and Harker Heights is pleased to provide an alternative method, where patients can experience a simpler and easier bowel prep on the same day as their colonoscopy. Our process has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively clean the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water, and with a proper physician prescription, we an work you in at a time that’s convenient for you. This method allows patients to forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient and uncomfortable. With no need to constantly run to the toilet, you can get a good night’s sleep and achieve excellent outcomes.
Each session is conducted in a private environment, utilizing purified water, disposable nozzles, and sterilized equipment.
You will be given instructions at the same time you schedule your appointment. A few days prior to your scheduled visit you will receive a call to review the instructions. These may include taking some gentle laxatives and going on a clear liquid diet prior to your colonoscopy.
When you arrive for your prep, our trained technician will lead you to your private room and introduce you to the Prep System. Once you have been seated on the sanitized basin, the Prep tech will instruct you on how to introduce a sterile disposable nozzle into the rectum.
Once inserted, a gentle stream of warm water will flow into the bowel, loosening stool.
Water continues to flow, allowing you to comfortably and discreetly evacuate your colon. Your technician will determine when your colon has been fully cleaned. The process typically takes less than an hour. When complete, you will rinse, wipe, towel dry, and dress.

Ionic Bath Therapy has origins stemming back 5000 years to the Eastern Indian traditions of Ayur Vedic medicine. This system of healing used concentrated sea salt baths to assist the body in drawing out impurities. This type of therapy was also practiced in Roman times in conjunction with the use of public baths. In both cases, impurities were drawn away from the body, from lower concentrations (in the body) to higher concentrations (in terms of salt) in the surrounding water, through both osmosis and diffusion.
The use of ionization, where water (in the confines of a foot bath) is charged with both positive and negative ions (acting then in a similar way to concentrated salt in water), is a new idea, but it is founded on the same historical principle. However, the results of using ionization are much more dramatic and noted in shorter periods of time.
