Important information to digest.
Colonic Irrigation, Colonic Hydrotherapy, Colon Cleanse or simply Colonic are all terms used to describe what is fast becoming one of the most sought after health treatments in Europe.
If you’re looking to kick-start a healthier lifestyle, build your energy levels, boost your metabolism, improve skin tone or assist with a weight loss programme then these are just a few of the benefits of colonic hydrotherapy.
Our digestive system has a lot to do with the way we feel, how we look and our general well-being. Your digestive system can easily become imbalanced through poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, choice of drink and general lifestyle.
Food that isn’t digested fully ends up in the colon where it builds up over time. This causes the digestive system to slow down, be less efficient and back-up. A backed-up colon is also a breeding ground for unhealthy bacteria, causing a build up of toxins in the body. An average colon is 5 foot long, so imagine what could be backed-up
Did you know the average transit time of food through our bodies should be 24 hours? In Europe it is reported that an average transit time is closer to 60 – 70 hours.
Some of the more common side effects from an improperly functioning colon and poor digestion can be feeling bloated, bad breath, bad skin, constipation, fatigue, protruding abdomen, difficulty losing weight and disturbed sleep.

Is having a colonic safe?
YES. I am a fully trained and accredited Colonic Hydrotherapist. At THC we use state of the art equipment which is sterile and disposed of after every treatment.

Do I need more that one Colonic?
The number of treatments needed can vary as everyone is different. I will advise you of the recommended number of treatments during your free consultation. On average, 3 treatments are normal. Remember the colon is 5 feet long, so it usually will take more than one treatment to successfully clear the entire colon.

We normally recommend a course of three treatments and that they are carried out within a 10 day period, leaving it longer will reduce the treatments effectiveness.
After the treatment it would be six months before we see you again for a maintenance session.
