An introduction to Colon Hydrotherapy and Colonic Irrigation.
(If you are interested in Colonic Massage instead, please visit my blog or contact me)
I am a highly experienced therapist having performed thousands of colonic hydrotherapy treatments. Colonic hydrotherapy and colonic irrigation are the same. It is just a different term to describe the treatment that is used for cleansing the colon, (bowel.)
Modern colon hydrotherapy is an effective method of bowel cleansing. It is a gentle, effective method for stimulating the bowel to remove waste matter involving warm purified water. Colonic hydrotherapy uses warm water to gently stimulate your colon to empty itself using your body’s natural peristaltic action.
Normally, when you feel you want to go to the toilet to empty your colon, which is the last part of your bowel, (also referred to as the large intestine or large bowel,) it’s caused by the colon being full enough to create a certain amount of pressure against the colon wall from the contents within. This triggers nerve receptors to recognise it’s full and the colon muscles contract to empty out waste material when you go to the toilet. This muscular contraction is known as peristalsis. One of the primary functions of your colon is to absorb fluid, which includes lots of water. During an colonic treatment, we use water to gently stimulate the same peristalsis response.
People often perceive with an colonic we are able to ‘suck, remove or pump out’ waste material from your colonic, but we don’t. We only stimulate your colon to do it’s own job. What comes out depends upon what might be in there and what your body releases. We therefore can’t guarantee we can empty it out.
A colonic treatment can also incorporate a coffee enema and I use coffee that is specifically roasted for enema use. (See price page.)
Have a look around the website for FAQ’s and other information regarding bowel and digestive health problems.
Cleansing is something practiced by people all over the world, so it is reasonable that a part of that will involve some means of bowel cleansing.
It is often seen as a modern treatment made popular by celebrities in recent times, but in fact cleansing of the digestive system dates back to Egyptian times, is referred to in the bible and promoted by Hippocrates.
I moved to RICTAT colonic association some years ago and became a board member to continue my interests in the wider aspects of the colon hydrotherapy profession. I have spent many years working as a mentor and provide ongoing training for colonic therapists.
I was Chairman of ARCH, the Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists for 3 years and served as a committee member for many years. I provide personalised colonic hydrotherapy services for clients in Stourbridge, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Wolverhampton and across the Midlands.
Please note: Colonic Hydrotherapy is not in any way 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.
