Why have a Colonic?

Impacted faecal matter can impair the colon’s ability to absorb nutrients and assimilate them into useful elements the body can use. The build-up of matter can inhibit the movement through the bowel which can cause constipation, IBS and other associated problems.

Waste material that is stuck in the colon can cause many problems. It can be quite toxic, and these toxins enter the blood stream making us feel ill, tired or weak.

Before the treatment
If you have never received a colonic treatment before, we strongly recommend a course of approximately 3- 6 treatments.
Initial treatments can vary, however it is common for the first treatment to be more about hydrating the colon rather than eliminating impacted faecal matter.
For best results we would advise not eating for a couple of hours before the treatment.

During the treatment
Your colonic treatment will begin with a consultation to determine your lifestyle habits, elimination regularity and desired outcomes. Clients then lie on a couch with their head resting on a comfortable pillow and are allowed to relax whilst a small single use speculum is lubricated and then carefully inserted into the colon through the rectum.
Filtered water at a carefully regulated temperature is introduced under gentle pressure through the rectum using a small tube into the colon. The water cleanses the colon of faecal matter, parasites and old deposits, which are piped away with the waste water.
Your therapist may vary the temperature of the water and use abdominal massages during the treatment to improve the breakdown and elimination of waste.
All equipment used is disposable, used only once and hygienically prepared just before your treatment to ensure 100% cleanliness.

Aftercare Advice
It is very normal to feel lighter, brighter and more refreshed and energised. At least a few pounds of waste will have left the body.
Your body will have absorbed a lot of water so you may notice an increased need to urinate, which is a good sign as your body will be fully hydrated and flushed of toxins. Continue the treatment with a good water intake to continue to detoxification process.
Occasionally results may mean clients experience a headache or feelings of mild illness. Although not pleasant, this is a good sign that negative toxins are being removed. Headaches are a sign toxins have come to the surface ready to leave the body and so continue to drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol and toxic foods and book in for your next colonic treatment as soon as you can to further remove all toxins.

Following a course of treatment your bowel will be functioning at optimum and you will be glowing with health from the inside out – be prepared for compliments!
