Colonic Hydrotherapy (sometimes called Colonic Irrigation) totally cleanses and detoxifies the body, an essential requirement for total well-being and promotion of healing.
The colon is a major part of the excretory system and is responsible for eliminating food and other body wastes, as well as protecting us from infection and disease. In a normal functioning colon, all this is achieved with the help of billions of friendly bacteria which inhabit the colon and make up some 70% of the dry weight of our faecal waste.
However, the delicate balance of your internal ecosystem can very easily be disturbed by a number of factors including stress, pollution, poor food and drink choices, certain drugs, smoking and exposure to toxic substances.
Colonic Hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath using warm, purified water that can help to eliminate stored faecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances from the colon.
On your first visit, I will take your case history to ensure that there are no medical reasons (there are very few) why you should not undergo the treatment, and then explain the procedure. The colonic itself will take 30-45 minutes: water will be gently introduced into your colon via the rectum, while at the same time special massage techniques will stimulate the release of stored matter.
The cost of a single session of Colonic Hydrotherapy, performed on an one-to-one basis in comfort and complete privacy, is £75.
It is not just we that recognise the importance of a clean colon. Nature knows that too - see this Hatha Yoga account of the ibis.
