Colon hydrotherapy is a completely natural treatment that is enjoyed by thousands of people every day, from celebrities and film stars to ordinary people of all ages, from all walks of life. It may seem a little strange at first, but the more you learn about the treatment and its many benefits, the more you’ll see that it is a very normal and natural way to take care of your health and wellbeing.
Colon cleansing is not a new idea; in fact, it has been carried out for thousands of years by people across the world who have enjoyed the health benefits of the treatment. Today, the treatment is safer and simpler than ever.
The ancient Egyptians and Greeks practiced inner cleansing, as did traditional Chinese and Indian civilisations. Each of these cultures realised the many health and wellbeing benefits of this natural treatment, and the fact that it has endured for so long, and has spread so widely, is a testament to its effectiveness.
Around the turn of the 20th century, the first present day colonic equipment was developed. Up to the late 20’s many doctors had colonic systems in their surgeries and similar equipment was found in hospitals too. Articles dealing with colon health frequently appeared in prestigious medical and scientific journals until the early 1930’s. Today, hospitals have largely replaced colonics with cheaper purgatives and laxatives, although some people find these unpleasant and ineffective.

Modern Colon Hydrotherapy
While the treatment has taken many forms over the centuries, the essence of the therapy has remained the same – a gentle wash out of the colon or large intestine, using warm water to remove waste matter, rehydrate and exercise the bowel.
Today’s therapists use hygienic closed systems, with clean, filtered water to cleanse the colon quickly and easily, with no fuss, no mess and no smell, making modern colon hydrotherapy safer and more convenient than ever before.
This makes a modern colon hydrotherapy treatment as normal and natural as any other part of your regular health and wellbeing regime. Many of our clients have colonics on a regular basis, to complement other healthy lifestyle choices such as healthy eating, stress management and regular exercise.
People have colon hydrotherapy for a wide range of reasons. Some are looking for relief from the symptoms of IBS and other gastro-intestinal problems such as bloating, constipation or diarrhoea, while others simply want to maintain and improve their digestive health and enjoy the fresh, light feeling and enhanced energy levels that often comes from the treatment.
Even with the best will in the world, few of us eat as healthily as we should, or take enough exercise. Unfortunately, our bodies simply aren’t designed for this sedentary lifestyle fuelled by processed and refined foods full of chemically synthesised ingredients. Inevitably, this upsets the natural way your digestive system works, leading to a range of negative effects on your health, from digestion and bowel problems, to lethargy and headaches.
The complex way food affects our everyday lives is an emerging area and diagnosing the cause of symptoms which seem to be ‘unexplained’ is often difficult.
How A Colonic Can Help
Colon hydrotherapy works with your body, helping to return your digestive system to a more natural, healthy state. The gentle flow of water works in two ways: firstly it cleans out waste matter in the colon, and secondly it stimulates the natural nerve and muscle action of the bowels to encourage proper bowel function.
Unlike an enema, colon hydrotherapy, combined with gentle abdominal massage from your therapist, can reach the full length of the large intestine, ensuring a thorough cleanse and the maximum benefit.
Colon Hydrotherapy gives many people a sensation of overall well-being and energy and it’s often the inspiration for a healthier diet and lifestyle all round.
What’s more, since your digestive system is closely linked with the rest of your body’s functions, the therapy may also help you with headaches, allergies and acne, and improve mental and physical sluggishness. And when you feel good on the inside, it shows on the outside, bringing out your natural beauty through clearer skin and brighter eyes.
Almost anyone can benefit from a colon hydrotherapy treatment, whether they are currently experiencing digestive problems or not.
Experience shows us that colonics can provide relief from the symptoms of a wide range of digestive disorders, including IBS, constipation, bloating and wind. Many of our clients find that colonics offer help where modern medicine has failed, especially where symptoms have been dismissed under the catch-all diagnosis of IBS.
However, colon hydrotherapy is not just for digestive problems, it can also work to keep your bowels healthy, in the same way that visiting the gym can help keep you fit.
Young or old, male or female, healthy or suffering, colon hydrotherapy is for almost everyone from all walks of life. However, there are some circumstances in which the treatment is not recommended.
