Colonic Hydrotherapy is a modern and efficient technique used to provide a comfortable and harmless solution to an age old problem of eliminating toxins. The treatment involves a gentle internal bath using warm, purified water that can help to eliminate stored faecal matter, gas and mucus from the colon.
What are the benefits?
In recent years there has been a renewed interest in natural therapies, which colonic hydrotherapy is clearly linked. By assisting the body’s own mechanism stimulating the nerves of the colon and helping to improve muscle tone.
Dating back to 1500BC the Egyptians recorded colon cleansing and the use of enemas and purgatives.
Today regular clients who select this treatment include those with long term bowel conditions along with individuals who are now questioning the efficiency of the use of long term pharmaceutical intervention in treating malabsorption caused by stress, constipation, bloating, recurrent yeast infections, clysbosis and general intestinal issues.
How does it work?
Your visit to a registered colonic therapist will involve the taking of your case history followed by an explanation of the procedure. The colonic itself will take approximately 45 minutes, during which time water will be gently introduced into the colon via the rectum, whilst your therapist uses special massage techniques to stimulate release of stored matter.
Herbal and bacterial implants may be used and your practitioner will also advise you on diet and certain cleansing and naturopathic techniques to further enhance your treatment.
Following your treatment, information sheets will be given and key areas will be discussed in relation to your health lifestyle.
How many treatments should you have?
This is dependant upon you as an individual and advice will be given at the first consultation. It may vary from one treatment to a number spread out over a period of time.
During treatment, the client’s lower half is kept covered and the process itself is not painful or discomforting. Practitioners will sometimes recommend changes to the client’s diet. Treatment should always be undertaken by a trained and qualified practitioner who will remain with you throughout the procedure.
