All you need to know practically speaking is given below but there are always plenty of questions that occur to people when they are about to have something like a colonic; like "Want to know about farting?" "Wondering where the poo goes?" Please do contact me should any of your questions not be answered below. I would be delighted to hear from you.
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 a mild discomfort and passes after a few seconds.
How much does it cost?
Information on charges and availability can be found on the Location & Booking place.
Will I be okay to drive home afterwards?
Absolutely. You should be able to resume your normal day.
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on your presenting condition and general health, however, it is generally recommended to have a minimum course of three colonics.
Is it a safe procedure?
Yes. Speculums are single use and any other equipment is sterilised using approved sterilisation solutions which kill all prevalent bacteria, viruses and fungi in minutes. The water pressure is very low, so there is no danger of bowel perforation and the water used is pre-filtered.
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?
Yes, it is absolutely fine to have a colonic whilst having your period. In fact, it can often help greatly to reduce period cramps and discomfort.
What should I eat before and after I have my treatment?
You would be advised not to have a large meal before or after your colonic but do eat something. Try to avoid rich, fatty meals and alcohol after your treatment.
What do I have to wear?
Please just wear your normal clothing. You will be given a towel or a gown to use during the procedure to maintain your dignity.
