The benefits of Colonic Hydrotherapy are far reaching. Most people present with bowel related symptoms and are amazed to find that often seemingly unrelated problems are also resolved.

Improved and regular bowel function
Much more energy
Positive mental attitude
Clarity of thought and vision
Smooth and toned skin
Pain free periods
Feelings of lightness and ease
Greater comfort day to day
With toxic load diminished and elimination improved, a greater sense of well being and lightness is experienced
What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, accumulated faecal matter and mucous deposits. Using a single use disposable speculum, filtered water is gently introduced into the rectum which progressively softens and expels faecal matter and compacted deposits. Unlike an enema, water is not retained. There is a steady flow in and out which stimulates the colon helping to regain the natural tone, shape and peristaltic action.
The colon, or large intestine, is an important part of the digestive system, some five feet in length and two and half inches in diameter. It completes our digestive process and handles food waste and much other bodily waste. It is normally populated by billions of friendly bacteria which assist to detoxify waste, synthesise certain vitamins and help us guard against infection.
What is involved?
The procedure involves the gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the rectum. The abdomen is massaged at stages throughout the colonic, which can help loosen impacted faeces and mucous which is then piped away in the wastewater. There is no physical exposure to the waste product by either the client or the therapist during the procedure. It is not painful and only slight cramping may occur when gas or waste has accumulated.
The number of treatments required will vary according to the individual and the condition being treated, and this is the sort of thing that would be discussed during your consultation.
Is it safe?
Yes. Speculums are single use and all other equipment is sterilised using approved sterilisation solutions, which kill all prevalent bacteria, viruses and fungi in minutes. Countless thousands of colonics have been given safely. The water pressure is very low, so there is no danger of bowel perforation and the water used is pre-filtered.
Unlike regular use of laxatives, which encourage bowel laziness and have many negative side effects, colonic hydrotherapy is not habit forming and in fact, improves muscle tone.
