Colon hydrotherapy is not a new science! It has been used for thousands of years to cleanse the body.
Today we use safe, closed system, modern technology. By inserting a tube into your bottom, filtered, warmed, low pressure water is allowed into your colon providing a safe, gentle, internal bath to cleanse the colon.
Colon Hydrotherapy physically removes stored waste from the colon, expelling hardened faeces, irritants, excess mucus and gas. This allows the rebalancing of the flora of "good" bacteria which ferment and break down nutrients, allowing both nutrients and water to be absorbed through the colon wall more efficiently. This helps in the making of good stools and therefore effective "waste disposal".
The treatment exercises the muscular colon wall, enhancing 'peristalsis' (muscular contractions). This stretches and reshapes the colon, removing pockets and bulges of hard material, allowing the natural shape to return and smoother, more complete elimination of faeces.
Colon Hydrotherapy helps remove the causes of many chronic problems.
It can be used to help people suffering from:
Constipation / Diarrhoea
Bloating / Flatulence
Existing Bowel Problems (such as IBS, Diverticular Disease)
Low Back Ache
Mild Haemorrhoids and Varicose Veins
Skin Conditions - Acne / Eczema / Psoriasis
Parasites and Worms
Headaches / Migraines
Ear, Nose and Throat problems
Mental Health Problems and Sleep disorders
By starting to cleanse your colon, you can expect a greater vitality and an increase in energy. A great kickstart to a diet, health regime or further cleansing of your body. Besides physically clearing the colon and improving existing chronic problems, your overall sense of well-being can improve.
DURING THE CURRENT COVID-19 PANDEMIC, HOW APPOINTMENTS RUN WILL VARY.
When you arrive at The Good Life Clinic for the first time, you will be asked to complete a confidential medical history form. Elaine will then discuss your history with you and explain the procedure; this will take around 30 minutes.
The colon treatment itself takes approximately 45 minutes. The Transcom Colon Hydrotherapy HC-2000 machine gently introduces warm, filtered water into your colon via your rectum and is then released. You are in control at all times and the therapist will be with you throughout.
During this time, special massage techniques together with the internal bath, will stimulate the elimination of stored faecal matter, mucus, gas and toxins. Several cycles of filling and emptying will provide the opportunity for your colon to begin to work more effectively.
A quick way to start your body cleansing!
During the treatment, Elaine will teach some deep breathing techniques, for relaxation and elimination, which will help enhance the treatment.
We will give you practical after-treatment advice and suggest ways of continuing to care and improve your colon and general health. The number of treatments needed depends greatly on each individual. Years of colon neglect may not be solved in one session. We will advise you on the day of your first visit, what follow up treatment may be necessary.
Your appointment will last around 1.5 to 2 hours.
