Colonic hydrotherapy (or irrigation) is a gentle internal bath using warm, purified water that can help eliminate stored faecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances from the colon. Colon hydrotherapy dates back to 1500 B.C from the Egyptians. It is a natural and holistic way of cleansing the body. Colon Hydrotherapy has so much more than just cleansing; the additional benefits can be watching the change in the body from inside and out, with clearer eyes, skin, hair, nails, more energy and mental being, fewer headaches, improvement in weight problems, circulatory and immune system and so much more.
Colon Hydrotherapy makes you look at the inner you, helping you make those changes in your life and lifestyle, with help from your therapist you will understand that changes are possible to make you feel good inside and out. Colon Hydrotherapy can help re-educate and reshape the colon for a better healthier you. ?
First of all you will be ask to relax in the seating area in The Retreat and ask to fill out consultation notes which involves taking case history followed by the therapists explanation of the procedure. The actual treatment will take about 30 to 45 minutes during which time warm water will be gently introduced into the colon via the rectum whilst your therapist uses special massage techniques to stimulate the release of stored matter. ?
Each individual is different and the reasons why there are having Colon Hydrotherapy in the first place, the therapist will be able to advise the client after the first initial treatment what course of treatments will best suit there health needs. At Eternal Being, each treatment is tailor made to address each client’s health. ?
No, not at all, with the advanced training that our therapist have the clients will find their Colon Hydrotherapy treatments are a revitalising and pleasant experience.
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with colon hydrotherapy, the entire length of the colon (the large intestinal tract approximately 5 to 5½ feet in length) is reached. Colon hydrotherapy is many more times effective.
According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker,“One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas.”

Colon Hydrotherapy is a fantastic tool which can give you the head start or the kick start that is needed for a better health and lifestyle, helping you to want to improve your diet, lifestyle and exercise routine. Making you feel better and improve your body image and feel younger, fitter and more energetic. Helping you to look after yourself for the long-term, if you don’t want that and you only want to achieve short-term improvement then it will only be short-term improvement. If you do not want to asess the food you’re eating, exercise your taking and the lifestyle you lead then it will work for short term, just like a car if it has been serviced for its MOT in the short term it will work fine, however if you fail to maintain and care for the car it gets rusted, you put the wrong fuel in, it will break down and not work the way you want it to. The same applies with the human body with Colon Hydrotherapy it is the whole picture looking at the whole person. ?
Usually not, however since the treatment will stir up a lot of old faecial matter and toxins, you might experience some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to rest and apply a hot water bottle to the abdomen. A peppermint tea or peppermint capsules can usually be soothing at this time. ?
YES, in fact it is usually a good time to receive Colon Hydrotherapy since your body is already cleansing and the treatment may help relieve cramping associated with menstruation. Your menstrual flow will not interfere with the success of the treatment. The flushing of the colon will also reduce abdominal pressure associated with menstrual cycles. Please can we ask is that you remove your tampon or towel before the treatment starts. ?
We would not recommend colonics during pregnancy unless it is recommended and performed by a qualified medical practitioner specializing in pregnancy. ?
After regular childbirth we suggest 10-12 weeks, unless you had complications or a caesarean. You need to decide for yourself whether your body has recovered enough from the shock of the childbirth. Make sure your stitches have healed fully, talk to your doctor or nurse if in doubt. You can have a colonic while you are breast feeding.
Yes most people do not find it difficult to drive back after their colonic treatment.
We use the Aqua-Clinic, the newest colon hydrotherapy gravity device, manufactured in the UK to comply fully with UK water board and health and safety requirements.
The equipment we use is incredibly gentle there is regulation of both temperature and pressure during the whole treatment.
We use triple filtration for incoming water : carbon, particle and hi-flow UV disinfectant that make sure the water we use on you is as fresh and clean as possible.
All equipment is pre sterilised and disposable. Surrounding areas are disinfected using hospital-approved disinfecting solutions, which kill all viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Colon Hydrotherapy, unlike the use of laxatives, is not habit forming and actually improves the tone of the colon.
Fully disposable kits are used with our systems.
Everyone is different & everyone comes for colonic’s for all different reasons. If you eat less, increase your fibre, exercise, drink water, chew and think about the food that you are putting into your mouth, you will achieve weight loss. ?
Your modesty is preserved at all times. During the treatment itself you will be fully covered using a gown, a blanket will also be placed over you to maintain your dignity. All medical details obtained from the consultation are strictly confidential. ?
You certainly don’t need to worry, it is a client lead treatment, and the treatment is about making you feel good. We use disposable kits: water line, speculum and undergarments. You are covered all the time. The toilet and changing rooms are to ensure your complete privacy. ?
Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take one or two days before it fills up again and normal bowel movements are resumed. Some water is absorbed through the colon wall during a colonic, and one may notice an increased need to urinate for a few hours afterwards. This beneficial effect of flushing the kidneys may also be enhanced by drinking a few glasses of water with the juice of half a lemon added to each glass. ?
We recommend Probiotic supplements to give a head start to the good bacteria that populate our bowel and to ensure absorption by the body of nutrients and vitamins from our food. Although irrigating the colon does not remove all of the intestinal bacteria, it is still helpful to take probiotic’s to maintain bacterial balance. Live yoghurt with acidophilus is also advised because it is an active cleanser that also adds vital forces to the colon. We will also recommend other health supplements if the person is of need.
Eternal Being has your aftercare treatment at heart, we cater for each client individually and have supplements on site to suit each individual.
