Colonic Hydrotherapy

Single session 60-00

Colonic Hydrotherapy or “Colonic Irrigation” is a simple and gentle procedure which is hygienic and odourless. It is a detoxification process and constipation remedy based on the theory that fecal matter may become impacted and cling to the wall of the colon where it can affect the colon’s ability to process nutrients and allow toxins to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Colon toxicity can be the underlying cause of many of these commonly reported health problems and may indicate the need for colonic hydrotherapy… Constipation, Headaches, Haemorrhoids, Backache, Arthritis, Allergies, Diarrhoea, Distended Abdomen, Bad breath/Halitosis, Skin Problems, Chronic Fatigue, Asthma, Irritability, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Depression, Prostate Trouble, Difficult Weight Loss, Frequent Colds, Hypoglycaemia, Insomnia, Food Cravings, Abdominal Gas, Hypertension, Foul Body Odour, Menstrual Problems.

The colon (also known as the large intestine or bowel) carries out many functions which are essential for keeping us healthy. As part of the digestive process it absorbs water soluble nutrients and vitamins, and eliminates waste from the body.

The delicate workings of the colon and the bacteria inside can easily be disturbed by stress, pollution, poor diet, some drugs, smoking and exposure to toxic substances. Although you may go to the toilet regularly, some waste can collect in little pockets lining the colon and does not pass through you. The build up of waste also weakens the muscle of the colon causing it to become congested. The result is a build up of toxins which make you feel ill. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, colonic hydrotherapy can help improve both your physical health and mental well-being: Bloated abdomen Gas/Wind (excessive or smelly) Diarrhoea Constipation IBS Haemorrhoids Tiredness/Fatigue Lower back pain Depression Bad breath/Body odour Skin Problems (eczema, acne or psoriasis) Allergies MS Candida ,Headaches, Haemorrhoids, Arthritis, Diarrhoea, Asthma, Irritability, Prostate Trouble, Difficult Weight Loss, Frequent Colds, Hypoglycaemia, Insomnia, Food Cravings, Hypertension, Foul Body Odour,Menstrual Problems.   Preparation We recommend that you eat and drink lightly for 2 hours before treatment as the abdomen will be massaged to assist the cleansing process. Consultation The first appointment lasts 1½ hours consisting of a free ½ hour consultation and 1 hours treatment. Subsequent appointments last 1 hour. The therapist will take detailed notes of your lifestyle and any symptoms or conditions from which you suffer. They will also explain the procedure in detail. You will be asked to remove your lower garments and will be provided with a gown to wear. We ensure that your modesty is maintained at all times. The Procedure A small sterile speculum is inserted into your rectum. This is attached to a tube, which carries the water into and the waste out of your colon. The tube is totally enclosed so there is no odour. The therapist is able to examine the waste being flushed out through a window in the tube. Warm filtered water is introduced under gentle gravitational pressure. This, together with gentle massage techniques, helps the faeces and impacted waste to soften and flow out of the colon.

After the Treatment

Once the therapy has completed, you can carry on your normal daily routine. You may feel the benefits of the procedure immediately, which include a feeling of lightness and well-being. You may need to go to the toilet a little more frequently than usual, but you won't experience any uncontrollable urgency. The colon is lined with bacteria which help keep it in good health. During the therapy some of these bacteria are washed out along with the waste. Many more will remain deep in the colon lining and soon regenerate. Depending on your existing conditions, and the symptoms you have been experiencing, your therapist may recommend you take supplements to replenish the bacteria that have been lost.
