Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle, safe and effective method of cleansing the large intestine of waste materials by applying gentle flushing with filtered warm water.
Why have a colonic?
If you are thinking “I really feel that I want to get my body cleansed. I haven’t been eating well or looking after myself. I am feeling sluggish, constipated and bloated. I want a fresh start with a healthy diet after I cleanse my body”
If you live a lifestyle in which you have high stress, eat refined and processed food and are not doing much exercise, having a colonic is for you! This unhealthy modern lifestyle can upset the natural way your digestive system works, leading to a range of negative impacts on your health, from digestive issues to tiredness and headaches.
Combined with cleansing diets & programmes, this is the best time to have a colonic as the waste materials become easier to remove from the colon.
How a colonic can help?
Colonic works with your body, helping to balance your digestive system into a more natural, healthy state.
The introduction of water through the rectum into the colon helps clean out waste matter and gas in the colon and stimulate the natural nerve and muscle action of the bowel to encourage proper bowel function.
Combined with abdominal massage, it can reach the full length of the large intestine, ensuring a thorough cleanse and the maximum benefit.
What are the benefits?
Many people experience a sense of overall well-being and energy. It often gives you the inspiration for a healthier diet and lifestyle.
As your digestive system is closely connected with the rest of your bodily function, a colonic may also help with various symptoms such as headaches, allergies, acne and feeling of sluggishness. As your large intestine gets cleaner, you feel good on the inside as well as it shows on the outside, bringing out your natural beauty through clearer skin and brighter eyes.
What Happens in Your Colonic Session?
A session involves the taking of your full case history, questions about your diet and lifestyle followed by an explanation of the procedure. The initial consultation and session takes approximately 60 minutes. Further colonic sessions also take about 60 minutes, including brief dietary advice depending on the result of the session.
At the beginning of the session, you will be asked to go to the toilet to empty your bladder, put on a gown and lie on your side or back on the couch. A new disposable speculum is inserted into your rectum, which will remain in place during the entire session. It is then attached to the silicone piping which allows warm water to flow into and out of the colon.
Special massage techniques will be applied during the treatment in order for the therapist to assist in stimulating the release of stored faecal matter. Herbal implants and coffee can be used during the colonic session in specific cases. Then, the water and waste products leave the colon via an enclosed system which is piped directly into the drainage system.
At the end of the session, simple dietary changes and suitable supplements may be advised to further enhance your session.
