Also known as Colonic Hydrotherapy or Colon Therapy, this practice was reputedly used in Ancient Egypt, China and India. However, the method common in the West today has its origins in 19th Century European spas.
What to Expect
A treatment will begin with a detailed case study, and an explanation of the procedure. The client is then asked to remove all clothing and wear a gown provided by the therapist. The client then lies down on a treatment table and warm, purified water is introduced into the colon via the rectum, the therapist will use special massage techniques during the procedure to stimulate the release of stored faecal matter. The colonic will take between 30-45 minutes. Herbal and probiotic implants may be used and advice will also be given on dietary changes to enhance the treatment. Advice will also be given on how many sessions will be necessary, and a colon cleansing programme may be recommended to support the treatment.
