Warm filtered water is gently infused into the colon via the rectum using a gravity fed closed colonic system.There are different types of systems so ask your therapist. This infusion of warm water allows toxins and impacted faecal waste to be released gently out of the body into a tube and out into the closed waste outlet.
Colonic Hydrotherapy is a complementary therapy used alongside orthodox treatments. Whilst we see great results with the treatment, we do not claim to cure any diseases.
