Frequently Asked Questions
IS COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY SAFE?
It is completely safe for most people. But if you have been diagnosed with certain medical conditions, treatment may be contraindicated. Your therapist will take a full medical history on your first visit and advise you accordingly, so please declare all conditions.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED A COLONIC?
It depends on your reasons for having the treatment. Your therapist will be able to give you a better indication after discussing your personal circumstances.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
No, you should feel no pain.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You will be provided with disposable gowns and underwear.
WILL I BE COVERED UP?
Yes. Your privacy and dignity will be respected, and your therapist will show discretion at all times.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A TREATMENT?
Treatment works best on an empty stomach, so please avoid food for two hours before your appointment. Drinking fluids is allowed (except for alcohol), but you will need to empty your bladder before your treatment begins.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
You will need an initial consultation before your first treatment (this will take about 15 minutes). The treatment itself takes between 40-50 minutes and we advise you to relax in the clinic for 5-10 minutes afterwards.
CAN I LEAVE THE CLINIC STRAIGHT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes you can.
IF I HAVE A COLONIC, WILL IT REMOVE FRIENDLY INTESTINAL FLORA FROM MY COLON?
Friendly bacteria thrives in a clean colon. Colonic hydrotherapy cleanses your colon, helping to bring the acid/alkaline ratio back into balance and allowing friendly flora to multiply. We advise you to take a probiotic after every treatment to encourage this process.
CAN I HAVE TREATMENT WHILE I AM MENSTRUATING?
Yes, if you feel comfortable. Please wear a tampon.
