Frequently Asked Questions
What is colonic hydrotherapy?
Does colonic hydrotherapy hurt?
No. It's quite common for people to feel like they need to go to the toilet, but it's not at all painful.
Does colonic hydrotherapy smell?
No. I use a completely sealed system, so there are no odours whatsoever.
Is colonic hydrotherapy safe?
Yes! Modern advances in technology, equipment, and training mean that colonic hydrotherapy is completely safe. The equipment maintains the water temperature and pressure within safe limits and I use single use, disposable speculums to adhere to the strictest hygiene standards.
How many treatments do I need?
There's no minimum requirement and you may just book in for a single colonic. However, I generally suggest a course of three colonics over three weeks to start off. If you wish to continue with regular treatments, I recommend once every three months.
Can I have a colonic on my period?
Yes. Being on your period does not have any impact on the treatment, so as long as you're comfortable, it's absolutely fine. However, I do recommend bringing a spare tampon or sanitary towel for after the treatment.
Can having a colonic help me lose weight?
Colonic hydrotherapy isn't a weight loss treatment, but it's quite common for people to feel lighter and lose a few pounds. This is down to the amount of waste that is cleansed from the colon, rather than fat or cellulite.
Is it embarrassing?
No, not at all.
What happens during the appointment?
Once you've changed into the treatment gown, you'll be asked to lie down on your side while I insert the speculum.
What is a herbal implant?
A herbal implant is a type of enema. Herbs are mixed with water to create an infusion, which is taken rectally and travels into the liver and bloodstream.
What herbs do you work with?
I will use a blend of any of the following herbs, depending on whether there is a specific issue you would like treating:
What's the difference between an enema and colonic hydrotherapy?
Although both procedures aim to cleanse the colon with water, there are some key differences. With an enema, the water is held in the rectum and only works on the lower colon, whereas with a colonic, the water is flushed through the entire colon.
What are the benefits of enemas?
Perhaps most obviously, relief from stomach and digestive issues, such as constipation, gas, and cramps.
Do you only do coffee enemas?
Coffee enemas are the most popular type of enema, but I do offer others. If you'd like to know more, please email email@example.com or call 07966 137 539.
Where are you located?
My clinic is situated within Aspire North Wales Clinic.
Is there parking?
Unfortunately, there isn't a car park at. However, there are plenty of nearby car parks and on-street parking. If you're unsure about where you're going, please mention to me when booking and I'll give you as much information as possible.
Are you a qualified practitioner?
Yes, I'm a fully qualified RICTAT and GCCRT colonic hydrotherapist. I have also completed additional training on enemas and implants.
