What is Colon Irrigation

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is the infusion of ultra filtered warm water into the colon via the rectum. Gentle flushing of the colon softens faecal waste and impacted solids that may have collected over time and washes them away. Our specially designed equipment uses gravity-fed water flow and is very safe. Our colon hydrotherapists assist clients as required, ensuring comfort, safety and highest standards of hygiene.

History of Colon Hydrotherapy 

It is interesting to note that this procedure has been practiced in different cultures throughout the world for over 3,500 years. Colonic irrigation is now becoming widely accepted and sought after by people who value the benefits achieved by this highly effective form of detoxification.
