Colon Hydrotherapy Information

Colonic Irrigation, or Colon Hydrotherapy, has been used in the Western world since the 1800s, its roots steam from ancient Egypt, Greece and India. Our belief is that toxins built up in the bowel which may be responsible for many health problems and the goal is, therefore, to flush them from the colon.

This form of colon hydrotherapy, Brunelle Method is a closed system which uses purified filtered oxygenated water, which washes the faecal matter from the large intestine. This does not go into the small intestine. When slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water is released flowing out through an enclosed tube. As this is a completely closed system there is no fear of any spillage.
The physical goals of each session are to hydrate the system, remove waste, stimulate peristalsis, rehabilitate the nerves, muscles, glands, circulatory and immune systems that form the components of the digestive system, and to reposition the intestines. Which leads to an improvement in digestion and enhanced elimination pathways, leaving you felling more energized, clearer thoughts, and a different perspective on life.

What is involved?
You do not need to make any special changes to your diet or lifestyle before a treatment, however many people choose to have a treatment when embarking upon a new health regime.
As registered, professional therapists, we are used to people feeling nervous, especially before a first treatment. Part of our job is to put you at ease and ensure you are comfortable having your treatment.
At your first appointment your therapist will take a full medical case history, and will explain the procedure and treatment process to you. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.
A brief rectal exam must be carried out and then the speculum is gently introduced 1.5 inches (4cm) into the rectum. This procedure should not be painful. If you feel any pain or discomfort please inform your therapist.
An inlet and outlet tube are attached to the outside of the speculum to provide a through-flow of water going in and water and waste going out. The waste is piped away, and since the whole system is closed, there is no odour.
After lying on your left side to allow the speculum to be gently inserted, your therapist will ask you to turn onto your back. To assist elimination of waste and gas pockets your therapist may use gentle abdominal massage techniques.
Sometimes herbal infusions are used during a colonic treatment and a probiotic (friendly bacteria) implant may be given afterwards if indicated. Again your therapist will discuss your treatment with you during the session.
