Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?
During the treatment you will be resting on a massage table on your back. Your therapist will correctly insert a small syringe into the rectum so it remains comfortable and secure during the treatment. The syringe has 2 tubes, one that delivers purified water into the colon, and another to carry away the waste. This is called a CLOSED system treatment. Your therapist will be by your side during the treatment, massaging your tummy, explaining the procedure and ensuring you have a thorough and rewarding treatment experience.
HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE AND IS IT UNCOMFORTABLE?
Your appointment time is one hour. The treatment itself should only take 30 minutes. When you are relaxed and comfortable the bowel will relax, so we focus on keeping you relaxed and supported throughout the treatment to minimise any discomfort.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER A TREATMENT?
Most people remark how lite and clean they feel immediately after their treatment. You are able to carry on with the rest of your day with no downtime. That is part of the reason why so many people find time for a treatment in their busy lives.
ARE COLONICS SAFE?
Colon hydrotherapy uses filtered water to gently soften and dislodge compacted, hardened and congested faecal loading. This is toxic waste that can recirculate in the bloodstream and provide an ideal environment for pathogenic organisms like batches, parasites, funguses yeast. Removing this waste can greatly improve health and vitality. By using purified water there are no allergic or unexpected reactions, and your therapist ensures the treatment is carried out safely and comfortably.
WILL ALL MY GOOD BACTERIA? WILL IT BE WASHED AWAY?
This is not possible. In fact we have more bacteria in our digestive system than we do cells that make up our body. Our microcosm of bacteria play a very important role in our health and wellbeing. Flushing stagnant matter from the large intestine is crucial for building friendly gut bacteria and reducing unfriendly pathogens. Colonic irrigation instantly improves overgrowths of bacteria, parasites and fungi and provides and environment where beneficial organisms can then multiply and thrive.
