What is Colonic Irrigation?
Colon irrigation (also known as colon hydrotherapy or colonics) exercises colon muscles that have been weakened by the build-up of toxic debris. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon during the treatment improves the peristaltic activity (muscular contraction) that moves material. This in turn helps speed up the transit time of faecal material once the muscles have been toned, strengthened and rejuvenated.The gentle action of the water also helps eliminate pockets of waste, returning the colon to its natural state. The colon or large intestine is the end portion of the human digestive tract. It eliminates waste, conserves water and absorbs electrolytes and minerals. Waste material (impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, chemical residue, etc) that has remained there for some time can pose health problems. These poisons can enter the blood stream, making us feel weak, tired or ill.
Impacted materials can also impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and cause an abundance of bad bacteria and yeast. A build-up of material on the large intestine wall can also inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time and Constipation. Colon irrigation, Colon Hydrotherapy, Colonics can greatly alleviate this congestion and is a safe, effective method for ridding the system of waste.
Colonic irrigation is a relaxing, gentle experience which includes highest quality products and sanitary standards are incorporated. Filtered temperature regulated water is introduced into the colon through a disposable speculum after the waste material of the colon is softened and loosened it is evacuated through a flexible plastic hose that connects the speculum to the colon hydrotherapy device. There are no offensive smells or mess to worry about. It is very safe as the water is introduced at low pressure so there is no danger of bowel perforation. The treatment usually lasts around an hour and your modesty is preserved at all times.
Colon hydrotherapy requires safe, reliable and efficient machines which have been designed for that purpose. At our Revive Colon Hydrotherapy Clinic we use the Colon Hydromat, which is manufactured by Hermann Apparatebau GmbH, in Germany, and is considered by many to be the best possible. There are certain contra indications to colonic including some bowel conditions, pregnancy and heart problems. A detailed medical history is taken during the first consultation so necessary information is known.

The colon is also called the large intestine or the bowl. It is 1.5 metres in length and is a hollow, tube-like organ that is situated at the end of the alimentary canal. This is where the final stages of digestion, absorption and elimination take place. The colon carries out a number of vital functions including:
– absorption of water-soluble vitamins and the synthesising of valuable nutrients, such as Vitamin K
– storage of waste, bacteria and intestinal gas
– excretion of poisons and waste products
A normal colonic treatement can take between 45 minutes to 1 hour. The facial treatments will vary between 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the treatment booked.
