What is involved?
Your visit to a registered colonic hydrotherapy clinic will involve the taking of your case history followed by an explanation of the procedure. The colonic itself will take 30-45 minutes during which time water will be gently introduced into the colon via the rectum whilst your therapist uses special massage techniques to stimulate the release of stored matter. Your modesty is preserved at all times. Herbal and probiotic implants may be used and your practitioner may advise beneficial dietary changes to further enhance your treatment. No fasting or special measures are necessary prior to a first treatment but colon cleansing programmes may be advised between sessions.
How many treatments are needed?
This depends upon the individual case and advice will be given at the first consultation at the colonic hydrotherapty clinic. This 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?
Yes. The water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure, so there is no danger of bowel perforation. All equipment is either disposable or disinfected using hospital approved disinfecting solutions, which kill all viruses, bacteria and fungi. Colonic hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxatives, is not habit forming and actually improves the tone of the colon.
The Colon Hydrotherapist
You may visit a Registered Colon Hydrotherapist with confidence. To be registered, a therapist must either have been trained and experienced in orthodox medicine (e.g. doctor, dentist or nurse), or have satisfactory training in anatomy and physiology and considerable training and experience in a body based therapy. Subsequently they will have been trained at one of the approved (and inspected) Colonic Hydrotherapy training colleges. The premises of therapists are inspected prior to their admission to the Register and these are periodically re-inspected.
