The colonic procedure takes around 45 minutes on the table to help flush away the accumulated waste that has been stored over the years. 

Colonics should not be painful, however depending on your levels of toxicity and blockages from waste in the colon you could experience some discomfort during the treatment.

These symptoms will ease each time you have a treatment as the toxic load will be lessened. You can also feel some nausea during the treatment at times whilst the body is releasing waste but once you have removed the waste that feeling should go immediately.

After a treatment you should feel a lightness and a lot clearer in the head and some people experience improved energy straight after.

We recommend a few simple steps to prepare for your colonic.

  • In the days leading to your appointment, increase your water intake. This will soften your stool and ensure a relaxed and comfortable colonic.
  • Follow a healthy diet on those days as well. Go for fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Avoid greasy and processed food. Food such as beans, broccoli, cabbage, onions, brussel sprouts and carbonated beverages can cause excess gas and make your procedure uncomfortable.
  • Get plenty of sleep so you are relaxed for your procedure.
  • Keep taking your usual medications.
  • Empty your bowels before the procedure and let us know if you are severely constipated.
  • Arrive 15 minutes before your procedure to allow time to fill in any forms and get relaxed.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing.

Unfortunately, you can’t claim colonics or Naturopathy on your health fund.

Everyone differs depending on their health issues. We always suggest between 4-6 treatments for a general cleanse. Your therapist will advise when they think you will need to come back for more.

Treatments are usually around one week apart unless doing a three or 5-day juice cleanse.

Colon Hydrotherapy (33)

Colon hydrotherapy is the method used to flush away accumulated waste from the colon and digestive tract. Using the closed system of colonics, a speculum is inserted into the rectum with tubes attached to the colonic machine. All speculum and tubing packs are once-use-only disposable equipment.

Warm filtered water is then introduced into the colon to gently massage the colon wall of the intestine and soak into the waste to bring it off the walls and away through the machine. The average person holds between 4kg and 10kg of waste in their body, and if regular cleansing is not done, it can lead to all sorts of bodily aches, pains and dis-ease.

Treatments last around 45 minutes and are gentle and pain-free. An experienced therapist will be with you throughout the process, do some abdomen massage, and teach breathing techniques to help encourage the release of waste. Essential oils and infusions are also used during the treatment to help with elimination.

Colonic irrigation can help with a large range of dis-ease, including bloating, constipation, IBS, headaches, brain fog, allergies, sensitivities, Inflammation, mucous, Coeliac disease, candida, weight loss, removal of parasites, skin conditions, arthritis, aches and pains, stress and many more.

Yes, colonics are a gentle way of flushing waste out of the body to give it the right conditions to heal.

Colonics help to strengthen the walls of the colon, allowing for better peristalsis and can be done on a regular basis.
We use state-of-the-art Hermann Hydromat closed colonic machines for your safety and ease of use for the therapist.

Speculums and tubing packs used are all disposable for one use only. Therapists are certified professionals highly trained and experienced in the technique.

The Hermann Hydromat has an inbuilt cleaning system that is used in between each client ensuring all treatments are sterilised and safe.

We suggest not eating for at least 2 hours before your treatment as it can help with any nausea that may come up during your colonic, and your body won’t be digesting food. Plenty of water is recommended as it helps with hydration and elimination whilst on the table.

Wear comfortable clothing where you can leave the upper half on. Some women wear a dress so they can lift up to have their upper half covered with the sheets and a blanket to cover the lower half if it’s cold.

No smell as the tube are all attached to the machine which is a closed system.

This normally never happens but sometimes the tubing can’t take the waste due to a large amount coming through and usually your therapist will know and let you off the table to release on the toilet near by.

The good and the bad bacteria are removed during your treatment. However, if you are overloaded with toxic matter and parasites which most people are if not having regular cleanses, the flushing out of the bad helps the good to replenish more easily and prolifically.

Also, taking a good probiotic after your treatment will help replenish the good bacteria needed to keep the colon happy. We provide probiotics after each treatment.

After the first trimester, it is considered safe and a lot of women do have colonics whilst pregnant with great results. Colonics can help to benefit the health of the baby as well as the mother the less toxic waste the mother holds.

Yes, it is a great time to come for your colonics as the body is already cleansing and makes for a more effective colonic. Colonics at this time can also help with PMS, bloating, headaches etc.

Colonic waste contains old food waste, undigested food, seeds, mucous, candida, and parasites. This waste can slow the natural peristaltic action of the colon.

The colonic procedure takes around 45 minutes on the table to help flush away the accumulated waste stored over the years.

Yes, you may have some emotional releases during your Colonic Hydrotherapy procedure. This varies from person to person.

During your treatment, you may get a little emotional whilst releasing stored-up toxins. This can be in the form of being a bit teary, angry or even laughing. The colon does not only hold toxins but old stored emotions from stress-related issues during your lifetime that tend to be pushed away.

This is always a positive experience, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time.

Coffee is infused during your colonic, which helps to stimulate the bile ducts in the liver and release toxins. The coffee is released into the colon at the beginning of your procedure and is held for 15 minutes before being released.

Why would I have a coffee colonic?

The coffee infusion intensifies and encourages your liver to draw more toxins out of your blood. This is a much better way to detoxify your bloodstream at a faster rate and provides a quicker healing time for those with chronic health conditions.

The average person holds between 4kg and 10kg of waste in their body, and if regular cleansing is not done, it can lead to all sorts of bodily aches, pains and dis-ease.

Tummy Massage encourages the removal of waste from the colon and helps with muscular action.

Circular motions are used over the top of the sheet covering your lower half. The clinic has Wooden Belly Balls available to help with your own personal belly massage at home. These belly balls act as a self-help aid to be used daily for continuing bowel care.

The bowel muscle can connect to the bouncing rhythm and start releasing waste and gas.

Essential oils are used on the tummy as your colonic hydrotherapy treatment starts to help move digestion. Other essential oils may be used during the treatment to help with anxiety, stress, the release of waste, and to help you to relax and have an enjoyable experience.

Probiotics are used during and at the end of your Colonic Hydrotherapy to feed the gut with healthy bacteria. Probiotics are live organisms that can proliferate and restore the vital microflora of the gut and digestive system to support optimal health and vitality.

Colonics should feel fine during the treatment. Sometimes, you may get a little pain like period pain or diarrhoea whilst waste is being removed, but generally, it is not painful. You should feel lighter, clearer and have more energy after your treatment.

Laxatives are an irritant to the lining of the bowel and can cause harm if taken regularly and make the bowel lazy.

Colonics help to stimulate the action of the bowel and make the peristaltic muscle-like action stronger, whereas laxatives will make it weaker over time, making you have to use more to get your bowel moving.

Laxatives only remove some waste and can dehydrate the body whereas colonics will hydrate the body.

Colonics cleanse the whole bowel, and enemas only clean the lower part of the colon, leaving behind stored-up waste.

Detoxification (2)

Detoxification is the process that aims to eliminate toxins and impurities from the body. It can be done through various methods, colonic irrigation, fasting, juice cleanses, detoxifying herbs, sauna therapy, dietary changes, and exercise.

One common approach to detoxification is dietary changes by avoiding processed foods, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole foods. Drinking plenty of filtered water is also essential for flushing out toxins. Some people will choose to do juice cleanses, or fasts for a specific period of time to give their digestive system a break from all the food they consume.

Exercising on a regular basis can help stimulate circulation and promote sweating, which aids in the elimination of toxins through the skin.

Sauna therapy, steam rooms are known to induce sweating which helps in detoxification bt releasing toxins through the skin pores. Spending time in a sauna can also have a relaxing effect on the body and mind.

Detoxifying Herbs

Some herbs and supplements may help the detoxification process. Common examples include, milk thistle, dandelion root, ginger, turmeric, and aloe vera.

Skin Brushing

Factors that can affect gut health include, diet, stress, medication, and environmental factors.
