It has been said that the United Kingdom is one of the most consitipated nation in the word, where one in three people consulting their GP's have a bowel problem.

The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us rather not think about and most of us don’t until our health becomes poor or we become constipated or get diarrhoea Colon cancer is believed to be the second leading cancer killer in the United Kingdom.

Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of detoxifying your body by removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened; resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis (wavelike movement). The Colonic lasts approximately 35 - 45 minutes and is best used in combination with good nutrients and fluid intake as well as exercise. Using state of the art equipment we provide a high quality service which will speak for itself. For more information please refer to the FAQ

Will Laxatives or Enemas Achieve the Same Results?
Laxatives and enemas are not substitutes for colonic irrigation. Laxatives act as a chemical irritant and stimulate the muscular walls to abnormally contract to expel the irritating substances.Administrating them orally can also interfere higher up the alimentary tract where important digestion takes place.

Enemas are helpful to clean out the lowest 25 to 30cm of colon, but you are missing out approximately the last 1.2meters. Therefore, laxatives & enemas do not clean the whole Colon the same as Colon Hydrotherapy.
