Colon Hydrotherapy is a completely natural treatment that is enjoyed by thousands of people every day, from celebrities and film stars to ordinary people of all ages, from all walks of life.
It may seem a little strange at first, but the more you learn about its many benefits, the more you'll see that it is a normal and natural way to take care of your health and wellbeing.
Warm filtered water is introduced into your colon through a small tube called a speculum that is gently inserted about an inch and a half into the rectum. As the warm water enters, you'll feel a fullness as your colon fills up, then a relaxing feeling as it empties. This process is repeated several times and massage is applied to your abdomen. The water pressure and temperature are carefully controlled and all waste is drained away discreetly in a closed system with absolutely no mess or odours. Colon Hydrotherapy has been around for thousands of years and there are Aramaic texts that describe the process of colon cleansing in biblical times. Thankfully, our equipment and sterilization procedures have progressed significantly since then.
People have colonics for lots of reasons. Some are looking for relief from the symptoms of IBS and other gastro-intestinal problems such as bloating, constipation or diarrhoea, while others simply want to maintain and improve their digestive health and enjoy the fresh, light feeling and enhanced energy levels that often comes from the treatment.
Your first appointment will usually last about an hour and a half and will include a consultation, medical questionnaire and a full explanation of the equipment and procedure. The therapy itself takes up to 45 minutes.
There are four main professional organisations concerned with Colon Hydrotherapy and these are: ARCH, RICTAT, IPCH and I-ACT. Training requirements may differ between each organisation but please ensure your practitioner is appropriately trained and fully insured.
When you have little or no knowledge in an area, how do you choose a suitable therapist? There will be several criteria that need to be met, and these will differ from person to person. Lots of people use geography to decide and choose a local clinic, some may use price, some availability that will fit in with their commitments. Whatever your method, please ensure that the person you choose is fully qualified and properly insured, and ask them about their training. They should be happy to discuss this with you and answer any questions you might have. Ideally your practitioner will either have a degree in a body based therapy incorporating anatomy and physiology, or have a doctor's or nurse's qualification. The length of time a person has been qualified is no indication of their success or expertise, so ask about their client base, or how many clients they see per week. Do you feel comfortable with your practitioner? You are about to reveal yourself in an unfamiliar and potentially embarrassing way so the more comfortable and relaxed you are, the more comfortable and effective your treatment will be. Because of my experience and background, I would always choose a place where Colon Hydrotherapy is celebrated as a means of improving health and wellbeing, as opposed to being a purely cosmetic procedure.
