What is colon hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as Colonic Irrigation, is a gentle natural procedure that clears the faecal waste matter from the gut, leaving you feeling light and clean with a feeling of overall well-being. It helps to promote good gut health and supports a healthy gut microbiome.
Warm temperature-controlled, filtered water is introduced into the colon (your large intestine, via the rectum) – similar to an enema. The water and waste matter are then eliminated via the tubing, and several cycles of refill and elimination are then carried out.
Why have a colonic
We need to remove this toxicity and restore our gut's balance, harmony and hydration.
Cleansing - Our Modern lifestyles are highly toxic to the human body. Our diet of highly processed food, full of sugar, animal proteins, pesticides, parabens, anti-biotics, E-numbers, caffeine, and alcohol means the body’s elimination system – liver, kidney, skin, lymph system and colon – is simply overwhelmed and overloaded allowing toxins to enter the bloodstream. We need to remove this toxicity and restore balance and harmony to our gut.
It is estimated that 90% of diseases can be attributed directly or indirectly to an unhealthy digestive system. It is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place. People suffer from malabsorption and auto-intoxication because of a gradual build-up of many layers of impacted mucoidal plaque in the intestinal tract. Removing the mucoidal plaque allows for a healthy gut microbiome to flourish and improves nutritional absorption.

Your privacy and modesty are protected at all times you will be made to feel relaxed and should feel lighter brighter cleansed and refreshed following the treatment.
This is a gentle treatment which involves warm purified water lightly cleansing the colon. You may feel an unfamiliar urge to use the bathroom at the beginning of the treatment, but this feeling quickly subsides as you become accustomed to the sensation. Most clients report the treatment to be ‘surprisingly soothing, rejuvenating and cleansing’. During the treatment gentle abdominal massage adds to your feelings of relaxation and comfort and will overall assist the effectiveness of the treatment.
Many clients report reduced bloating, a lighter feeling, and a flatter tummy following the treatment. However, it is important to note that weight loss primarily consists of the removal of waste not fat or Cellulite.
This varies from Client to Client just like with massages. Some Clients like to rest, others feel a surge of energy. Feelings of lightness and hunger are also reported, with some individuals not feeling inclined to eat for several hours afterwards.
