The Process

Colonic Irrigation incorporates a 6-step process in one treatment. Three to six colonics, depending on the system of colon cleansing used is recommended to successfully clean the 1.5 to 2 metres of Large Intestine (bowel or colon). This successfully supports your body and liver to bring forward toxins, thus distributing them within the colon ready for elimination by irrigation. Once the impacted material is removed off the colon wall, your colon can begin again to function as it was meant to.


1st Step

A colonic will cleanse the colon, by removing toxic material after it is broken down by the water. Assisted by a full abdominal massage, which is done manually by the therapists hands, the therapist can feel where the impacted matter and blockages are and enable the movement of mass towards the elimination canal (the rectum).


2nd Step

A colonic will exercise your colon muscles. Over time throughout your life, toxic debris builds up on the wall of the colon consequently weakening the colon muscles and impairing its function. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves the peristaltic action (your own muscle contraction), this will enable you to speed up your own transit time of faecal material during elimination once the colon muscles have been toned, strengthened, and rejuvenated.


3rd Step

It reshapes the colon. No one person has a perfect shape colon, one exception could be a newborn baby. When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape and structure. The gentle action of the water accompanied with the massage techniques and experience of the colon therapist, help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste. Over time this can result causing narrowed spastic constrictions. Fortunately removal of this waste can enable the colon to resume its natural state once again.


4th Step

Stimulation of Reflex points within the body. Every organ system and organ is connected to the colon by reflex points.The colonic stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues, and glands in a beneficial way (similar to Reflexology).


5th Step

The colonic hydrates your entire body. As you probably know by now our body is made up of 60-70% of water. With the use of filtered water during the colonic, our body is better able to absorb much needed water to hydrate each cell of the body. In turn these cells function at a higher rate as well as diluting the toxins already present within the body.


6th Step

Last but not least by far, 70-80% of our lymphatic system is located in the colon. The cleansing process also allows this system to function as it was meant to, optimising our immune system responses.


After each colonic treatment you will notice the skin as well as other organs of elimination like the lungs, kidneys, liver, skin and colon, functioning efficiently in eliminating skin problems like eczema, acne, and psoriasis. You will also notice clear, brighter eyes, not forgetting to mention a flatter stomach region and my favorite one of all a clear mind and head. A clean body will promote a clear mind, good thoughts and actions, attracting like-minded people to you.


Stress is alleviated in our daily life. We are able to function a lot better with our daily routines and complete our day with better sleeping patterns and our priorities are clearly set aside. This is ideal for the change of lifestyle and philosophy that you have chosen in deciding to strengthen your immune system and lengthen your life.
