How Can Colonic Irrigation Benefit Me?
Colonic Irrigation can be extremely beneficial in treating ailments such as acid reflux (heartburn), bloating, candida Albicans, constipation, diarrhea, halitosis (bad breath), IBS, indigestion, leaky gut and so much more.
Colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation releases faecal matter, gas, and toxins from your body by gently bathing the colon in purified water.
- Boosts Energy:
People who have had a colonic cleanse tend to experience a boost in energy and get a better night’s sleep. This is because your body is no longer using energy to force waste through the intestines; providing relief from lethargy and fatigue.
- Regulates the Digestive System & Prevents Constipation:
When the colon is cleansed, it allows waste to pass through your system and allows good nutrients to be absorbed into the colon once again. Colonic hydrotherapy also hydrates the bowels and helps to eliminate built up waste, preventing constipation.
- Reduces the Risk of Bowel/Colon Cancer.
Every year more than 16,000 people die of bowel cancer in the UK. In fact, it is the leading cause of cancer death in non-smokers in the western world. Colon cleansing forces all the toxins out of these organs and decreases the risk of cancer developing in the colon and gastrointestinal tract.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What happens during a colonic?
A case history is taken, and the procedure is explained on your first appointment. The appointment lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes and the treatment lasts up to 60 minutes. A disposable speculum is inserted into the rectum which is connected to a plastic hose and warm filtered water is gently introduced into the colon from a gravity system. The system is incredibly gentle, there is the regulation of both temperature and pressure during the whole treatment. Abdominal massage is used to stimulate the release of stored matter and herbal tinctures and probiotic implants. Your modesty is preserved at all times.
Is it painful?
No. Sometimes during a colonic the colon will contract and expel large amounts of matter causing cramping and a feeling of urgency, these sensations are tolerable and brief. Many people enjoy the sensation and feel relieved, cleaner and lighter afterward.
Is it safe?
Not only is it safe but also beneficial. All equipment is either disposed or sterilised using an ARCH approved sterilising solution. The water is filtered and introduced under low pressure; there is no danger of bowel perforation.
How will I benefit?
The colon is the waste bin of the digestive tract and few people clear it regularly, ideally two to three times per day. Irregular emptying can lead to decay, stagnation, and the formation of bad bacteria. It can also lead to high toxin levels within the body, halitosis, (bad breath) irritability, low energy levels, and low mood. Colonic irrigation helps unload the toxins and cleanses the colon.
How is a colonic helpful?
During colonic irrigation the muscle action improves, the pockets are emptied, and the colon begins to exercise and work efficiently. It allows this large muscle to return to its original form. The transit time of waste matter improves, and nutrients are readily and naturally absorbed through the bowel wall.
How many treatments will I need?
Your therapist will assess and advise you after your initial treatment on frequency and follow-up to maintain a healthy state.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe if I am menstruating?
Colon Hydrotherapy is perfectly safe during this time and may help to alleviate pain from the cramps and bloating accompanying menstruation.
What do I need to do before the cleanse?
There are no special precautions/procedures that need to be followed before your session. Fasting before you come is not necessary. You can take any medications that you have been prescribed as per normal and exercise as per normal.
Before and After Care
Hydrate the bowel one day prior to the colonic treatment by drinking 2 liters of water.
After treatment, take it easy. The colonic effects can be felt days after and some experience headaches and feeling tired but these symptoms soon disappear.
