(Most of you will know this as ‘a colonic’)
So what is colon hydrotherapy ?
It is the introduction of warm filtered water into the colon. This along with gentle massage helps to soften and remove compacted faecal matter from the colon.
The majority of us have a healthy diet with regular bowel movements. Even the most healthy of us have hardened accumulations of waste which adhere to the wall of the colon and can prevent proper elimination of waste.
What happens during a treatment?
On your first visit we take a medical history and details of your diet and lifestyle. Once this is done you will have the opportunity to empty your bladder and then to put on a gown and to lie on a couch. Your modesty is preserved at all times, we use large towels to cover your abdomen area. A disposable speculum is gently inserted into your rectum, this is where the warm filtered water is introduced into your colon.
During the treatment the therapist may gently massage the abdomen to help to loosen compacted waste. The water and waste leave the colon via a disposable tube. See system used page for more information
How long does it take ?
Your first treatment would normally take around 90 minutes,
Subsequent treatments would take around 60 minutes.
It is possible to have a colonic in your lunch hour
How much does it cost?
What happens after the treatment ?
Following the treatment you can take your time to get yourself dressed in private.
You can then carry on with your normal routine straight after the treatment.
Is it safe ?
Yes - All the equipment used is pre-sterilised and disposable. The treatment room is cleaned after every treatment using approved disinfectant solutions which kill bacteria and viruses.
The equipment has regulators and restrictors to ensure that the water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure. The equipment also has a number of filters to ensure the water is filtered, softened and purified.
Do you require qualifications to administer colonics?
All our therapists have been trained at I-ACT (International Association of Colon Therapists) approved schools and have obtained I-ACT qualifications.

Mandy - 32 years old
Came to us wanting some help and advice. She had been prescribed laxatives by her GP since she was 12 year old. She struggled to go to the loo at all without taking any laxatives and had no control of her bowel.
She had 3 colonics over 5 days so that we could clear any blockages. We then agreed that she would stop taking laxatives and we did a further 2 colonics the following week. We agreed that she should increase her water intake to 2 litres a day and booked her next colonic for 2 weeks time.
Mandy followed a healthy eating regime and drank 2 litres of water every day. After 5 days she sent us a message to say that she had been to the loo without taking any laxatives.
We carried on with colonics every 3 weeks. After 4 more treatments we agreed that
Mandy was now in control of her bowel movements, she was very very happy to be off the laxatives and felt much healthier and happier.
Norman - 54 years old
Was brought in by his wife, she was fed up with him always being tired and not being able to lose weight. After a consultation we found out that he was insuline diabetic, but when we discussed his diet it was not at all what a diabetic should have.
We did a colonic treatment for him that day, and we had a long discussion about his eating habits (kebabs, chips, fizzy drinks, cakes, chocolate) and we talked about the danger he put onto his long term health if he didnt make any changes.
We agreed a few small changes to his diet, he was going to stop having fizzy drinks during the day and would replace them with water. And he would replace his normal bag of crisps and chocolate and sweets that he would normally eat when he was driving or watching the television - these were to be replaced with fruit and vegetable snacks like carrot sticks or some nuts and seeds.
After his first colonic his wife telephoned when he got home to say that he had lost 5 pounds in weight and 2 inches from his waistline, the biggest difference was that his blood sugars had stabilised and that he had to reduce his normal insuline intake by half.
Over the next few months we kept an eye on Norman, he started to follow a healthy eating plan and telephoned one monday morning to say that he had spent the whole of the previous day doing the gardening and it wasnt till he sat down at night that he realised he had not had an insuline injection, he checked his blood sugars and they were normal. Norman now only needs his insuline around once or twice a week if at all and his weight is reducing slowly. (His wife is very happy because he has lots more energy to do all the DIY jobs she wants him to do and to take the kids out to play more)
