Constipation and Diarrhoea
The disease known as toxic megacolon can be fatal.

Why do I need a colonic?

The colon is able to store anything from 2kg - 20kg of waste. The average person carries around 7 kg of waste at any particular time. The accumulation of waste materials, especially those which remain in the colon for some time (eg. impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, parasites and gas) is toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel tired, weak or sick. Impacted materials impair the colon's ability to absorb essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals and a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation.

Colon cleansing is not a new idea, in fact, it has been carried out for thousands of years.

An age-old treatment
The ancient Egyptians and Greeks practiced inner cleansing, as did traditional Chinese and Indian civilisations. Each of these cultures realised the many health and wellbeing benefits of this natural treatment, and the fact that it has endured for so long, and has spread so widely, is a testament to its effectiveness.

Around the turn of the 20th century, the first present day colonic equipment was developed. Up to the late 20’s many doctors had colonic systems in their surgeries and similar equipment was found in hospitals too. Articles dealing with colon health frequently appeared in prestigious medical and scientific journals until the early 1930’s. Today, hospitals have largely replaced colonics with cheaper purgatives and laxatives, although some people find these unpleasant and ineffective.

Modern Colon Hydrotherapy
While the treatment has taken many forms over the centuries, the essence of the therapy has remained the same – a gentle wash out of the colon or large intestine, using warm water to remove waste matter, rehydrate and exercise the bowel.

Today’s therapists use hygienic closed systems, with clean, filtered water to cleanse the colon quickly and easily, with no fuss, no mess and no smell, making modern Colon Hydrotherapy safer and more convenient than ever before.

This makes a modern Colon Hydrotherapy treatment as normal and natural as any other part of your regular health and wellbeing regime. Many of our clients have colonics on a regular basis, to complement other healthy lifestyle choices such as healthy eating, stress management and regular exercise.


Keep Your Gut in Working Order with Colonic Irrigation Hydrotherapy

If you suffer from irregular bowel movements or constipation resulting in bloating and discomfort, why not consider a colon cleanse? Otherwise known as colonic irrigation hydrotherapy, this waste removal process restores gut health so that you can go about your day feeling light on your feet.

Benefits of Colon and Gut Cleanse

Our lifestyle affects how our body processes the food we eat. What and how often we eat directly influences our feeling of physical wellbeing, and the relationship we have with food determines the quality of life we lead. These are just a few of the benefits of a hydro colon cleanse:

  • Improved digestion and bowel function. This procedure removes contaminants from your colon so that your digestive system can effectively absorb beneficial nutrients from the food you eat. It’s important to note that a colonic is only a part of creating a healthy environment. Other contributing factors responsible for gut health are eating nutrient-rich foods, staying hydrated, regular exercise, and proper rest/sleep.

  • Improved energy levels. Having a properly functioning colon ensures that the intestines absorb vitamins and minerals from food responsible for giving us energy. Although the purpose of mucus in the body is to line tissues to protect the colon and trap potential irritants, a surplus of this fluid could be an indication of inflammation in the body resulting in fatigue.

  • Improves mental clarity. The colonic also removes excess gas caused by processed foods and carbonated drinks. Despite the initial sugar rush from these types of foodstuffs, the after effects leaves you feeling depleted of physical and mental energy. To have the best results, we advise our clients to complement these healing sessions by adapting their diet to more wholesome foods.

The Difference Between Open and Closed System Colonics

We will advise you on what to expect during your session so that you are comfortable throughout the entire process.

  • Closed System. The therapist can massage your abdominal area while explaining the inner workings of your gut. This step is followed by a peristalsis stimulation and hot and cold treatment conducted to tone your colon. This process lasts for about 45 minutes; however, if your body is still releasing at the 45-minute mark, we will continue until it is safe for you to go to the bathroom. Your body governs how the appointment progresses. 

  • Release.During the procedure, waste such as mucus, gas, plaque, parasites and candida are evacuated from your gut. As the contents of your colon are being flushed out, the therapist identifies these and explains things that are problematic and how to make better lifestyle choices for digestive health.

  • Open System: The therapist explains to the client how to do their own insertion with the machine set for 45 minutes. You are left on your own but should you require assistance; the therapist is on standby to turn off the water if necessary.
