The Colon, bowel or large intestine is situated in the abdomen, and forms the last part of the digestive tract. It is 5ft in length and 2 and half inches in diameter- that’s a lot of waste! It is responsible for eliminating food and other body wastes, as well as protecting from infection and disease.
Your visit to myself will involve the completion of a confidential questionnaire followed by an explanation of the procedure. The colonic itself will take 30-45 minutes during which time warm purified water will be gently introduced via the rectum whilst I massage your abdomen area to stimulate the release of stored matter and gas. The treatment starts with you lying on your side and then we progress to you lying on your back where most of the treatment takes place. During the treatment, your modesty is preserved at all times. For your first visit you should allow an hour and a half and thereafter one hour. No preparation is required for your Colonic session. But it is advisable to avoid eating a heavy meal just before the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required always depends upon your individual case and prevailing conditions. Often the waste is so hard and compact in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this accumulated faecal waste. Therefore the number required may vary from only one treatment to a number spread out over a period of time, after which preventative or maintenance treatment may be continued.
Is it safe?
The water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure, so there is no danger of bowel perforation. All of my equipment is disposable.
Colonic hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxatives, is not habit forming and can actually improve the tone of the colon.
