Colon Hydrotherapy is a completely natural treatment that is enjoyed by thousands of people every day, from celebrities and film stars to ordinary people of all ages, from all walks of life. It may seem a little strange at first, but the more you learn about the treatment and its many benefits, the more you’ll see that it is a very normal and natural way to take care of your health and wellbeing.
As Colon Hydro-therapists, we understand that you’ll naturally have some reservations and concerns, and we’re here to put your mind at rest and reassure you that, thanks to the high standards set by Citycare, you are in the safest possible hands.
What will happen at your appointment?
Your first appointment will usually last about an hour and a half and will include a consultation, medical questionnaire and a full explanation of the equipment and procedure.
Citycare have a friendly, open-minded, listening approach that helps us consider some of the possible causes of your digestive problems, and suggest some positive changes you need to bring your lifestyle back into a natural balance with your body.
Following your consultation, the therapy itself takes around 45 minutes, during which modern, hygienic equipment gently cleanses your colon using warm filtered water, in a simple, dignified procedure.
How does colon hydrotherapy work?
Warm filtered water is introduced into your colon through a small tube called a speculum that is gently inserted about an inch and a half into your rectum. As the warm water enters, you’ll feel a fullness as your colon fills up, then a relaxing feeling as it empties. The water pressure and temperature are carefully controlled and all waste is drained away discreetly in a closed system with absolutely no mess or odors.
This filling and emptying is repeated several times and massage is applied to your abdomen. Unlike an enema, colonic hydrotherapy reaches the whole length of your large intestine, with the massage from your therapist helping to ensure you benefit from an effective cleanse.
Your complete discretion is assured
There’s no need to be concerned about the treatment as your therapist understands the sensitivity of the therapy and will work to preserve your dignity at all times. You’ll be given privacy to change and have access to private toilet facilities. You will only be exposed for a few seconds for the insertion of the speculum, and after that you’ll remain covered throughout the treatment.
Our therapists appreciate that you’ll feel a little embarrassed by such a personal procedure and they’ll do all they can to put you at your ease.
