Colonic Irrigation is essentially the infusion of ultra filtered warmed water into the colon. Gravity fed water, gently flushes any impacted solids or wastes that may build up over time.
Due to the length of the colon, which is approximately 1.5 to 1.7 metres in length depending upon your height, we recommend at least 3 irrigations. These are normally carried out by having one on the first day, followed by another within 24 to 48 hours, and a third within 4 to 5 days after the second.
During each irrigation the therapist will provide progress feedback and indicate whether or not you require any further treatments.
All new clients undergo a consultation and education as to how the system actually works and you will be required to complete a full medical history questionnaire and consent form to identify any contra-indications.
The treatment lasts 45 minutes, and you will be required on the first visit for at least 1 and half hours, each subsequent treatment lasts for one hour.
After completing the initial cleanse, you may wish to consider the next stage of the irrigation process, that being Liver detoxification. This is carried out by means of a herbal infusion into the colon, effectively causing the liver to dump toxins that may have built up over time. Generally we recommend at least 3 – 4 treatments carried out on a weekly basis until completed.
The final stage of the colonic cleanse program is maintenance, by this we suggest only 1 irrigation at intervals of about 4 – 5 weeks.
