What Is Colonic Irrigation?

Colonic irrigation consists of slowly introducing warm purified water into the colon via a small tube. When the colon is filled, the water is allowed to flow out, bringing with it any loose waste. This process is carried out a number of times during the treatment, which lasts for approximately 30-45 minutes. This process is coupled with special abdominal massage techniques resulting in the gentle flushing of the colon, and loosening of old waste matter. This allows the colon to hydrate, cleanse, detoxify and tone internally. The treatment is gentle, safe hygienic and very effective, there are many benefits of colonic irrigation, why choose colonic irrigation?

Before your treatment commences you will be asked to complete a consultation form, this allows the nurse to assess what you are looking to achieve from the treatment and also to make her aware of any medical problems you may have.

Most individuals are able to have colonic irrigation but there are some medical conditions which prevent us from carrying out the treatment these restrictions are listed on the form and also here on the website; so if you are under a doctor's care for any medical condition please check our contraindications to treatment page contraindications. If you are concerned about any of these or have any other medical condition you think we should be aware of please call the centre in Newcastle and one of the nurses will advise you if we can carry out the treatment. We also carry out colonic algimud treatment and colonic inchloss treatment, treatments can also include colonic implants and enemas.

All treatments are carried out in a private, specifically designed treatment room and the client is covered at all times; comfort and privacy is of utmost importance and always respected. The highest levels of professionalism and hygiene are observed at all times with the utilisation of single use disposable supplies for all procedures.

Surfaces are all cleaned with antibacterial spray between clients the whole procedure is both clean and odourless.

Colonic irrigation is non habit forming, helping to improve the tone and function of the colon and enhancing good health. The nurse will advise you on how many treatments are required depending on your case history, given at the first consultation and what you wish to achieve from the treatment. During a consultation your medical history, diet and all related matters of health are discussed and a plan of your treatment and goals are agreed upon. The treatment plan is designed to give you a healthier lifestyle. The treatment regime is discussed after the first session and this may vary from a one off treatment to a series of treatments over a period of weeks or months. Each client is assessed individually and at each subsequent treatment by the nurse who will discuss any diet and lifestyle changes as well as suggesting any nutritional supplements which will be of benefit.

We offer all of our clients a complimentary probiotic supplement with a glass of water after the colonic.

You are able to leave the centre straight after your treatment but are very welcome to sit and relax in our comfortable waiting area with a magazine and a cup of herbal tea for as long as you wish.

At Central Healthcare we use a gravity fed system for colonic irrigation. This is our preferred method as the filtered water is naturally gravity fed into the colon and it provides greater control of the treatment. We do not use electronic pumped systems, therefore you will receive a controlled, gentle and comfortable treatment from the nurse not a machine. Most clients also receive colon massage throughout the treatment. This allows the nurse to feel for any particular areas of tension, bloating or impaction and helps the colon to release waste and relax the client.
