What is Colonic Hydrotherapy or otherwise known as Colonic irrigation?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is both a body and an emotional release treatment. It’s a treatment that introduces 100 – 150 litres of water into the back passage, which often results in removal of wastes from the large intestine. It’s a treatment encompassing your physical, emotional and holistic needs. There are very few treatments that can treat the internal part of the large intestine so effectively. When the colon is out of balance, it is necessary to clean out the toxins that have accumulated as all health problems which affect our body originate from the colon.
Colonic Hydrotherapy is about promoting the wellbeing of clients, encouraging clients to improve their own lifestyle by more exercise, nutritional improvements, advice on supplements and other therapies plus emotional support.

How safe is the treatment?
Colonic Hydrotherapy is a safe, painless and effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.
Today’s sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this ancient cleansing practice. It’s a treatment that introduces between 100 – 150 liters of water into the back passage, which often results in removal of wastes from the large intestine.
How does it work?
When you arrive, you will fill out a health questionnaire and we’ll go over your health history with you, we will explain how the session works and answer your questions before your colonic. Your session is an hour long.
During your session, a small amount of filtered water is introduced into the colon by means of a lubricated disposable and sterile nozzle. After a series of fills and releases, the warm water begins to soften the fecal matter, relax the walls of the colon and eventually waste and water exit your colon through a tube. Everything is contained within the tubing; there is no odor or mess. You will be covered, and made comfortable.
How will I feel after a session?
You will feel energetic after a colonic hydrotherapy session. Because your body is going through changes after detoxification you may feel the need to go several times that day or it may take you 2 – 3 days before you have a bowel movement. It is important to give your body a rest after a colonic and to drink the recommended 3 liters of water per day. Please ask for our client aftercare advice.
How many sessions should I do?
Initially we recommend 3 consecutive colonic hydrotherapy sessions in 3 days, then twice weekly and once weekly. We will assess your consultation and inform you accordingly.
Additionally, some people do one or two sessions if they feel lethargic, feeling congested, constipated, after traveling and more. Colon Hydrotherapy is also becoming recognized as an effective prep for colonoscopies.
