Colon Hydrotherapy (Colonics)

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy (colonics) is a gentle method of cleansing the colon of accumulated faecal matter, mucus, harmful toxins and bacteria that has accumulated over weeks/months/years.

How does a colon hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema?

An enema only reaches the lower part of the rectum whereas with colon hydrotherapy the entire length of the large colon is reached. Colon hydrotherapy, utilizing lower pressures and carefully controlled temperatures, is many times more effective. One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas

Is Colon Hydrotherapy a Cure?

Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure at all, but it can be a valuable treatment for a wide variety of different conditions.

What can I expect from a Colon Hydrotherapy Sessions?

Colon Hydrotherapy is clean and relaxing. It involves the gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the rectum. No chemicals or drugs are used. During a session, clients lie comfortably on a treatment table. Clients need to undress only from the waist down, and they remain covered throughout the procedure.

A soothing flow of warm water is gently introduced into the colon. The water temperature and flow is always under the direct control of the Colon Hydro Therapist. The water flows into the colon and the client evacuates the impacted faeces and mucous when they feel the urge. As the water flows out of the colon, the Colon Hydro Therapist gently massage the abdomen to help the colon release its contents.

Colon therapy cleanses the entire colon with minimal stress. Waste material is eliminated through specialized equipment to a drain line, thereby avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual. What is eliminated is visible through a sealed, clear viewing tube. Clients may see mucous, parasites, undigested food, and very old fecal matter. This visual impact can assist with healthy eating habits/lifestyle and therefor re- educates the owner of the bowel to start a healthy lifestyle.

What happens on the first visit?

On your first visit you will be asked to fill out a personal health questionnaire and sign the consent form. At this time you and your therapist will discuss your goals and what you hope to accomplish from colon hydrotherapy. The therapist will explain the therapy procedure, and answer any questions you may have.

How long is the treatment?

The session is about 35-45 minutes.

What to Wear?

Wear comfortable clothes, as you will be naked from waist down during the session but appropriately covered with a towel. Bring something warm to wear for example a pair of warm socks. Your body temperature might be slightly lower after the treatment.

Are the treatments painful?

An impacted colon may cause some discomfort and cramping. This is no different than the cramping one feels when experiencing severe diarrhea. This generally occurs as the colon contracts to expel waste due to impaction. Once the major impaction is removed, many people report relief of problems. Their vitality and energy levels are restored and they report the sessions to be relaxing and pleasant.

How many colonics will I need?

Everyone is unique and our digestive systems are different, it all depends on how dehydrated you are and how well your digestive system is functioning.

We tailor your colonic treatment according to your bowel condition. We aim to clean 6 feet of large intestine from the caecum to the rectum.

When you take into consideration a lifetime of abuse in which you recount back to early childhood all of the food and drink that you have consumed over your lifetime it will make complete sense that it will take more than one treatment to detoxify your body and re-educate your bowel to work more efficiently.

We encourage a series of two back to back sessions within a two week period to kick the detox process off which will support an intense clearing of the bowel.

For maintenance you may choose to have one session every 3 months for ongoing cleansing and toning.

A series of treatments helps eliminate protruding pockets and spastic constrictions, gradually allowing the colon to resume its natural shape and function.

What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy cleansing?

Refrain from eating two hours before the cleansing, be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude. Be well hydrated. Do not eat any gas forming food for 48 hours before the treatment. Have a light meal 2 hours before the treatment. For example: yogurt and fruit.

What about hygiene?

All contact equipment is disposable and is opened in front of the client.  The room and equipment is cleaned to a high standard after each client. Our equipment is TGA approved.

After care

One can anticipate feeling more peaceful, lighter, cleaner and more energised after a colonic.

On occasion, if there has been a longstanding condition/several health problems, a slight headache or fatigue may be experienced with the first or second colonic. If so, a short rest restore one’s equilibrium. In some cases you might feel slightly bloated for a few hours after the colonic, as trapped gas makes its way to exit. If this is the case, have a cup of peppermint tea or a mild vegetable broth and lie down with a hot water bottle for a while.

In very rare cases, tiredness persists for a few days as the body continues to detoxify itself. In these cases we recommend having another colonic treatment to accelerate the process. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.

Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take on the average one to four days before it fills up again and normal bowel movement resumed.

Some water is absorbed through the colon wall during a colonic, and one may notice and increased need to urinate for few hours afterwards.
