Colonic Hydrotherapy (irrigation) Treatment
Why choose a Colonic?
Colonic hydrotherapy (irrigation) is a safe and gentle treatment that supports the cleansing of the body via the large intestine (colon).
People use colonics as a systemic detox programme, or to help provide them with much needed relief from functional bowel problems like constipation, IBS, bloating and diarrhoea. It is suitable for either gender and for anyone aged between 18 and 80+!
I also see clients who recognise the value of a colonic on a deeper level. They use this treatment as a way of ‘drawing a line’ after a challenging episode of life, viewing it as way to add closure by ‘letting it go.’ How our bodies hold on to emotions is well documented, and having a colonic is a great way to move through difficult feelings and experiences.
There are some conditions contra-indicated for treatment and these will be discussed during your consultation, but if there is something you’d like to check out first, just email me hello@ or read our FAQs about colonics.
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.
What are the Benefits of Colonics?
The benefits of colonic treatments are far-reaching. Those clients who present with bowel-related symptoms are often amazed to find that seemingly unrelated problems are also resolved.
As no two people are the same, it is impossible to predict how you might feel following a course of treatment, but generally clients report the following improvements:
Testimonials from Colonic Clients
“Having had a number of number of treatments with Katherine, I can honestly say that they have helped so much. I no longer get headaches, I have more energy and my skin, nails and hair are also in a better condition.””
“A colonic with Katherine is a complete treat. She is so comforting and relaxing that we chat away about all sorts of subjects and I am genuinely sad when it’s over. The colonic itself helps me think straight and feel sorted and I value that greatly.”
“The experience leaves you feeling clean, light and invigorated, and perhaps a little hungry, and Katherine’s delightful ‘bedside manner’ helps you to maintain your dignity, your privacy and your sense of humour.”

Frequently Asked Questions about Colonic Treatments
Is it a painful procedure?
No, it is not painful. Some clients experience a slight cramping sensation when waste or gas has accumulated but this is only mild discomfort and passes after a few seconds.
How much does it cost?
Information on charges and availability can be found on the Appointments page.
Will I be okay to drive home afterwards?
Absolutely. You should be able to resume your normal day, but if you’ve never had a colonic before, it would be ideal if you can plan your first appointment on a day when you can take it easy afterwards.
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on your presenting condition and general health but it is generally recommended to have a minimum course of three colonics.
Is it a safe procedure?
Yes. All speculums and equipment are single-use and disposable. There are a few health conditions which are contra-indicated for colonics and this will all be covered during your consultation. If you’re really concerned, you can drop Katherine an email in advance of your appointment for clarification.
Are there any negative side effects?
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.
Can I have a colonic if I have my period?
What should I eat before and after I have my treatment?
What do I have to wear?
Please just wear your normal clothing. You will be given a fleece to cover your body during the procedure to help keep you warm and maintain your dignity.
