The colon acts as your own sewage works within the body, but if waste is left to break down and rot in your colon, the colonic membrane begins to re-absorb the waste back into your body. Making your body toxic and causing you problems.
Toxin in the blood system can build up over the years causing a range of symptoms from acne, thrush, constipations, I.B.S. (irritable bowel syndrome), early onset arthritis, joint pain, back pain and much more.
The water treatment stimulates bowel activity by using the body’s natural nerve and muscular response mechanisms which may help to tone and exercise the bowel (or colon), through gently cleansing the colon using filtered body temperature water to soften and remove waste material from intestinal tract, aiding the evacuation of waste both during and after treatment. The water flushes out of waste materials it can help to balance both physical and emotional conditions…just ring or come in for a chat with one of our Holistic Colonic Therapists to see if it can help you.
A full consultation to ascertain your full medical history (allow 15mins to fill form in) is carried out prior to your Colonic Hydrotherapy but let us know at time of booking if you are under your Doctor’s or specialist supervision or have any ongoing health conditions. We will explain the process fully. Do not hesitate to ask us any questions…even if you feel they may be embarrassing.
Pure water is introduced to the colon for 30 to 45mins as an internal bath, which actively stimulates the peristaltic movements of the bowel aiding in better digestion and absorption of food and nutrients, reducing many digestive related problems and making you generally feel better. Rest assured your comfort, modesty and confidentiality will be maintained at all times.
Spa Satori offers a HOLISTIC Colonic Hydrotherapy as it starts with a 15min Zen Chi Massager to relax and get things moving, during the treatment stimulating stomach and relaxing foot massage is helpful too. Music is played and a warming heat pack is placed on your tummy. Aftercare advice is given during the treatment that will hopefully help you…help yourself in the future.
Most clients find the procedure relaxing; as the treatment is gentle. Sometimes the client may feel a little discomfort – a bit like an upset stomach but this passes with closing of eyes and deep breathing. As professional therapists we are used to people feeling nervous especially before the first treatment. The therapist’s job is to put you at ease and ensure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment.
Clients have noticed different health improvements such as:
Improved weight control
Improved skin condition
Balancing of mood swings
Decrease in heartburn and indigestion
Regular and improved bowel movements
We recommend you have initial Colonic treatment and our expert holistic therapists will advise on an individual basis how many more and how often you will require treatments. Most people benefit from a follow up treatment within 1 month and then once or twice a year following this for maintenance. If you don’t have a bowel movement every day a course of several treatments may be beneficial to help regulate. Colonic Hydrotherapy treatments are available 7 days a week so will fit in with your busy lifestyle or if you need a treatment urgently!
