What is the Colon?
The colon is the last five feet of the intestine. It is a hollow, sausage-like organ made up layers of tissue that move digested food along in a wave like motion, known as peristalsis, to be eliminated.
What is Colon hydrotherapy?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is also referred to as Colonic Irrigation or a Colonic. Colonic Hydrotherapy uses gentle, filtered, temperature controlled water for inner cleansing of the colon, essentially ‘cleaning the pipes’. Over the years, with poor digestive function, the digestive system may not effectively eliminate waste resulting in an accumulation of faecal matter including bad bacteria, mould, yeast and parasites. If stored for too long it leads to an unhealthy digestive environment which may result in symptoms such as bloating, gas, headaches or skin conditions.
How does Colon hydrotherapy work?
Once you are comfortably positioned on the Colon Hydrotherapy system, a towel is placed over you to maintain your privacy. A sterile catheter is then inserted into the rectum; our therapist will start the procedure by turning on the switch allowing room temperature water to start gently flowing into the colon to stimulate the body’s own peristaltic motion.
This flow of water continues until light cramping is experienced. At this point you will release the water and the faecal matter is eliminated in a hygienic like manner. This process is repeated until the 8 gallons/42 litres (1 full tank) of water has been used. Each time you release the water, you are also releasing waste material from your digestive tract, which may not have been removed without the procedure. A registered nurse/Colon Hydrotherapist is always available to assist you with the procedure or answer any questions you may have.

How many colonics will I need?
