The Colon

The colon large intestine or bowel is situated in the abdominal region and forms the last part of the digestive tract. The colon is involved in the absorption of water, assimilation of nutrients and minerals, as well as the synthesis of vitamins. A major part of the excretory system, the colon eliminates food residue, drugs, heavy metals and other body wastes. This is supported by the billions of friendly bacteria which inhabit the colon and make up some 40 per cent of the dry weight of our faecal matter. This internal system is easily disturbed by stress, pollution, poor diet, medications, smoking and alcohol.

The Session

Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe and gentle internal bath which allows warm filtered water into the colon using the Angel of water system. Please view a brief 45 second video animation on our home page. This Angel of water, state of the art system, makes it possible to simultaneously bring purified water into the colon and carry waste out. This process is carried out throughout the session, which lasts from 40 to 50 minutes. The result is a gentle flushing of the colon, and a loosening of old fecal debris.

Colonic irrigation can effectively cleanse years of excess waste, pollutants and toxic substances. This process can also help rebalance the bowel flora by facilitating re-population of the stock of friendly bacteria. We recommend taking a good probiotic everyday to help build up and maintain healthy bacteria. We sell affordable, superior probiotics, but can also suggest good ones that you can purchase on your own.

Hygienic and odorless, the session is carried out in a clean, private and relaxing environment.

The session will begin with your therapist taking a full case history, which will be confidential. We encourage you to fill these* in take forms out prior to your appointment, taking them in with you to your appointment.

Unlike laxatives, colonic hydrotherapy is non-habit forming and actually improves the tone of the colon.

Your therapist will advise you on how many sessions are needed, depending on the outcome of your case history and your own particular requirements. This may vary from one treatment to a series of treatments over a period of months. It is also often useful to continue with maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 weeks in order to maintain the benefits achieved from your initial course of treatments.
