What to expect

Your first visit
On your first visit, a detailed case history will be taken to discuss any health issues that you may have. The practitioner will explain how the colonic will work, and answer any questions you may have prior to the treatment.

Your consultation my include modalities such as an iridology assessment and/or nail and tongue diagnosis.

The therapist will leave the room to allow you to undress from the waist down and lie face up on the table, with a towel draped over your lower half to protect your modesty.

The treatment itself
When the therapist returns to the room, she will ask you to roll over onto your side to allow her to gently insert a lubricated, single use speculum into your rectum. It is quick and gentle!

You will roll gently back to begin the treatment.

During the treatment your therapist will introduce warm, filtered water into your bowel/large intestine. The water works its way around the large intestine and you will feel a gradual feeling of light pressure. Only around ½ to 1 liter of water is introduced at a time.

The water will then be released and allowed to pass out through a waste tube, through the machine, and into the waste water system. The machine is designed to contain the waste and gas; therefore there are no embarrassing sounds or smells with this system!

Gentle abdominal massage is applied throughout the treatment to help facilitate the release of gasses and waste matter.

The treatment will last approximately 40 – 45 minutes with the therapist staying by your side and operating the machine throughout the treatment.

After your treatment
Following your colonic treatment you will be able to go to the bathroom to evacuate any left over water or waste.

After your treatment, a treatment plan can be discussed. It is usually recommended that you do a minimum of 3 colonics, spaced over 3 – 6 weeks, depending on your requirements.
