What is colon hydrotherapy or colonics?
Colon hydrotherapy is a natural, non-evasive water therapy where temperature controlled filtered water gently enters through the rectum and travels through the entire colon where it softens faecal matter. This helps cleanse the colon by flushing out old toxins such as candida, parasites, mucus and undigested food particles whilst also eliminating gas. The average person can carry several kilos of old matter in their colon which can have been accumulated from weeks, months days or even years.
A build-up of toxins can be linked to numerous diseases and health issues from leaky-gut and inflammation to more serious issues such as auto-immune disorders and cancer.
Unlike enemas which do not reach the entire colon, colon hydrotherapy uses multiple flushes in a controlled, relaxing and gentle environment causing faecal matter sitting further up the colon to be released with ease.
Benefits of colon hydrotherapy include:
- Increases peristalsis

Colon hydrotherapy can be a great way to rehydrate after a long flight or alleviate symptoms of constipation. Whether you’re seeking a simple detox or dealing with more chronic health issues, preparing for your session is key. Stay mindful and ensure that you are well hydrated leading up to your appointment. It’s also advisable to reduce your consumption of fizzy drinks and red meat a few days prior.
At Wonder a way of being, we prioritise your wellbeing and aim to provide the best care possible.
During your session at Wonder a way of being, our skilled therapist will guide you into the treatment room and ensure your comfort. You’ll have a moment to undress from the waist down and settle onto the treatment bed, with a soft towel discreetly covering the area below your waist.
As the session begins, lasting approximately 45 minutes, rest assured that your wellbeing is our top priority. Our expert therapist will gently fill and empty your colon, promoting gentle elimination and optimal results. Additionally, your stomach will be skilfully massaged, further aiding in the process of elimination. Trust in our dedicated therapist to provide you with the best possible experience and results.
After your treatment, you can have a moment in the private bathroom if needed. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
To aid in a smooth recovery, it is recommended to avoid heavy foods initially and instead opt for light options like steamed vegetables, salads, bone broth, or soup-based meals for the next 1-2 days. Be cautious with raw vegetables as they may cause bloating and discomfort.
To support your gut health, consider incorporating a high-quality probiotic supplement. This will create a foundation for a healthier gut flora, enabling better nutrient absorption due to the cleansed and clearer colon.
Including fiber-rich foods, especially leafy greens, in your diet is highly recommended maintaining a healthy bowel movement.
Finally, indulge in a soothing post-treatment experience by taking a warm Epsom salts bath. This will boost your magnesium absorption and enhance the detoxification process.
What our clients say about us
Frequently Asked Questions about colon hydrotherapy
What machine we use?
We use HydroSans for its quality and precise temperature and water control.
Are the therapists qualified?
Yes. Our therapists are all fully trained in colon hydrotherapy and are also practising naturopaths with many years of experience.
Is the procedure uncomfortable?
No. You will feel the colon being gently filled with water and when your bowel is ready to remove the waste you will feel the need to release just like you would on the toilet. Each time you empty the bowel during the session you will feel a feeling of relief and lightness.
Is the equipment disposable?
Yes. Our equipment is completely sterile and only used on you before being disposed. High hygiene standards are followed throughout the procedure.
How many sessions will I require?
For any individual who is new to colon hydrotherapy we recommend a minimum of three to six sessions to fully clear the colon and allow for maximum benefits. Since the length of the entire digestive tract can be up to 9 metres tall, these sessions spaced within a short space of time can fully allow the colon to be cleared in its entirety.
Does colon hydrotherapy wipe out all the good bacteria?
Colon cleansing does not wash away all the beneficial microflora since they are safely nestled in the mucosal lining. Most people’s colons are quite toxic which means the colon is quite overburdened with bad bacteria. By cleansing the colon with hydro-therapy we promote the elimination of yeasts, parasites, stubborn faecal material which then promotes a healthy microflora balance.
When is it not suitable to have a colonic?
If you suffer from the following then we advise that you do not have a treatment:
- Uncontrolled high blood pressure
