What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Cleansing the bowel is an ancient therapy that dates back to 1500 B.C in Egypt. It is an effective, safe and gentle process using purified warm water to bathe the large intestine using no chemicals or drugs. The treatment is absolutely painless and is experienced as being pleasant and relaxing. The warm water is infused very slowly into the colon to soften and remove impacted faecal matter. The client relaxes on a massage table while the therapist begins to infuse filtered water into the colon under controlled temperature and pressure. The old feculent material that may be lying in the patient’s colon for years is loosened and removed. The treatment lasts between 45 to 50 minutes. It is an enclosed system with no odours or exposure to bacterial waste. There is a viewing tube that allows the therapist to evaluate the faeces and make recommendations to the client after the treatment is complete.
Who can benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy?
Everyone can benefit from the treatment. We live in a busy world with ongoing lifestyle changes, for all of us who have been eating processed and nutrient depleted foods for decades, the colon becomes overloaded with toxic waste. Colon Hydrotherapy helps in reducing toxin levels and improves metabolic efficiency.
People with symptoms of intestinal distress can also benefit from the treatment e.g. constipation, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, haemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, skin conditions, difficult weight loss and more.
Another group of people to benefit are those experiencing abdominal pain, continuous headaches, and migraines.
What are the benefits and effects of the treatment?
Cleanse and Rejuvenates the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body. Even debris built up over a long period is gently removed in a series of treatments allowing your colon to function as it was intended.
Exercises the Colon Muscles
The build up of toxic substance weakens and impairs the colon. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon with purified water helps to improve the muscular contraction by which the colon naturally moves waste material.
Reshapes the colon
When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter the shape that in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water along with massage techniques that your therapist will use can help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes – the water is pre-filtered and enters the body under very low pressure. The temperature and pressure of the water is controlled at all times by your therapist, so it is a very gentle and safe procedure.
All the equipment is disposable and after every client the machine is thoroughly cleaned using hospital approved disinfecting solutions.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments will depend of the individual needs of the client. Most people on a standard diet will initially need a series of three to six treatments spread over a period of time to receive a thorough cleansing of the colon. However, overcoming lifelong intestine problems and achieving vital health may require treatments for some time. It has taken years to create your current body condition. After your first treatment the therapist will be able to advise you on how many treatments are required to maintain a healthy colon.
How long does the treatment take and what is the cost?
The initial consultation and treatment lasts approximately one hour and thirty minutes. Follow up treatments last about one hour.
