Colonic FAQ’s

How clean is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is very clean the whole area and toilet facilities are disinfected following each client. The tubing used are all disposable. Under no circumstances will any disposable equipment to re-used!!



Does it hurt?

Colon hydrotherapy is comfortable therapeutic and can be a wonderful experience. The biggest concern seems to be the tube entering the rectum, but please let me reassure you that this is not painful or even uncomfortable what so ever! The tube is small and fully lubricated and is only placed within the first part of the rectum. Most people are surprised as they don’t realise the tube is in place before being asked to lay on their back ready for the treatment. Most people will pass much bigger motions than the size of the tube with no effort at all.

Are you a registered Colon Hydrotherapist?

Yes!! There are many colon hydrotherapist that are not registered or even recognized by one of the few registering bodies/guilds. You can find your therapists details on the IACT(international association for colon hydrotherapist) register. We are also a member of RICTAT  which is an organisation for all Colon Hydrotherapists.

Will my visit be confidential?

Yes of course! Your colon hydrotherapist is extremely professional meaning that your privacy and confidentiality will be taken very seriously. Nobody else visiting the salon will even be aware of the reason for your visit.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe?

The colon hydrotherapy procedure is a very safe method. The water that is used in this procedure enters the rectum at a very low pressure that is then considered much more lower than the pressure that comes from your stool being exerted.

How many treatments of Colon Hydrotherapy should I have?

This all is purely determined on your condition and your end results of your first colon session. People who have been suffering from certain conditions for a long period of time, it is improbable that your condition will be gone entirely. However, after your very first session, it has been proven that many people can already start to feel the benefits of the colon. It is highly recommended that each individual, invest in the colon hydrotherapy courses that are available. The reason for this, is that, the colon therapist will also be able to help and guide you on what changes you may be required to adapt in your everyday lifestyle, such as; diet, exercise etc. Please note that not all people may be required to enlist any modifications upon their lifestyle.

For example, a person who may consume a lot of food that is not good for them such as takeaways, and hardly drink any water and maintain regular exercise, they will need to inflict changes upon their lifestyle. This would require them to have quite a few colon sessions over a regular period of time. The reason for this, is it will prevent them from feeling bloated and constipated and introducing your five a day and eating healthy meals and drinking plenty of water, will eventually result in you not being required to have as many colon sessions. This is because your body will be able to aid the normal function of the bowel.

Colon Hydrotherapy is nothing like a laxative and has a high success rate of improving the tone of the colon.

Will I lose weight from Colon Hydrotherapy?

It has been said that people may have a slight decrease in their weight when they’ve had a colonic. Please note that in a colon session you only lose waste and not any fat. It is suggested that if you start to consume less food that you increase the amount of fibre in your diet and partake in regular exercise and drink plenty of water.
