What does the treatment feel like?
If you are new to colon hydrotherapy, you may expect the treatment to be embarrassing, undignified and uncomfortable. Not at all. Relaxation is important and Linda will discuss your medical history prior to the treatment, and any anxieties and questions can be raised at that stage. There is no mess and no odour. All the waste passes directly through a closed system. Discretion and confidentiality is maintained at all times.
What happens during treatment?
Your first visit will involve the taking of a medical case history, explain the equipment and procedure, together with its benefits. Your individual requirements and aims will be discussed. In a 45 minute session, approximately 70 - 80 litres of warm, filtered water is introduced into the rectum via a speculum and specific abdominal massage techniques are used to assist in the release of faecal matter in congested areas of the colon. During the treatment, water temperature and pressure is monitored by Linda, and these can be varied to stimulate peristalsis of the colon.
The duration of each treatment is 30-45 minutes and a minimum of two treatments are recommended to achieve maximum cleansing benefits and an increase in health and well-being. Fees are £120 for the digestive health analysis and initial colonic hydrotherapy treatment, and follow-up treatments are £100. Any necessary herbal implants used during treatment are included in the fee. Advice on nutrition and lifestyle will be given, together with help and support for those individuals who would like to take cleansing a step further with liver/gall bladder cleanses, fasting etc.
