Colon hydrotherapy is not a new science! It has been used for thousands of years to cleanse the body.
At The Good Life Clinic we have a modern, closed system, using technology which monitors your colons pressure making it very safe. By inserting a tube into your bottom, filtered, warmed, low pressure water is allowed into your colon providing a gentle, internal bath to cleanse.
Colon Hydrotherapy stimulates the colon and physically removes stored waste, expelling faeces, excess mucus and gas. This, then cleaner environment, is conducive to better growth of "good" bacteria, also known as the gut microbiome. This plays a very important part in many aspects of health with current studies revealing more and more. The 'good' bacteria have many functions including the break down of food into nutrients so they are in the right format to be used by the rest of the body. They help maintain the gut wall allowing efficient absorption of nutrients and water through the colon wall whilst protecting the blood stream from pathogens. A healthy effective colon makes good stools and therefore effective "waste disposal" of digestion.
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 is not in anyway intended as a 'cure' or medical treatment. It should not be seen as an alternative to seeing your GP if you have any health concerns. Neither is it intended to infer or imply symptoms of IBS or other bowel conditions will be solved.
Prior to your first treatment at The Good Life Clinic we will complete a confidential medical history form. This will then be discussed and an assessment made as to whether Colon Hydrotherapy is a suitable treatment for you.
Elaine will then discuss your history with you and explain the procedure in full ; this will take approximately 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 and give good hydration for all your body.
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.
