Colonic Hydrotherapy / Colonic Irrigation Melbourne

Gentle, natural and highly effective detoxification

Colonic hydrotherapy (also called colonic irrigation) is a gentle, natural and highly effective method of detoxification.


After a detailed introduction, you can relax and enjoy your 'internal bath' in complete privacy and relaxation. The colonic hydrotherapy is completely self administered in a sterile yet soothing environment. If you need assistance our friendly staff are nearby ready to help.


How does Colonic Hydrotherapy work?


Warm, filtered water is infused into the colon to cleanse the body of accumulated wastes, acting as a kind of internal bath. Your body then naturally expels the water while you relax. By washing away the toxins that clog your insides, your body is able to function optimally.


Colonic Hydrotherapy is an excellent therapy for digestive complaints, skin problems, headaches, fatigue and lack of energy - all of which may relate to toxic overload. After a series of treatments you will notice:


  • Improved Digestive Function
  • Increased Energy
  • Glowing Skin & Clear Eyes
  • Easier Weight Management
  • Improved Circulation
  • Enhanced Immunity
  • A Generally Positive & Relaxed Mental State

Why have Colonic Hydrotherapy (Colonic Irrigation)?


Colonic Hydrotherapy is a procedure that has been practised for thousands of years, and has recently regained attention as a natural and highly effective method of detoxification.


In the modern world we are exposed to many toxins. Our body's systems of elimination are often overburdened, and therefore unable to function properly.


The colon is the prime eliminator of wastes in our body, essentially acting as our sewerage system, but also performing other important functions such as the absorption of water, assimilation of minerals and the synthesis of vitamins. Over time wastes can accumulate in our "sewerage pipes", leading to a variety of digestive diseases such as constipation, IBS, colitis, yeast infection (candida overgrowth), diarrhoea, abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence.


Accumulated toxins in the colon can also leech back into the bloodstream, resulting in systemic signs of toxicity such as fatigue, headaches, moodiness, food sensitivites and skin disorders.


Over time this gradual poisoning of the system can result in more serious diseases, depending on which tissues the toxins settle in. Arthritis, chronic fatigue and cancer have all been linked to a toxic colon, and many natural therapists believe that "all disease begins in the colon".


By gently cleaning out wastes that have accumulated in the colon, the body's toxic burden is alleviated, and the digestive system is able to function more effectively. Reported benefits of colonic hydrotherapy include: improved digestion, increased energy, glowing skin and clear eyes, easier weight management, a positive and relaxed mental state, improved circulation, and enhanced immunity.


Colonic hydrotherapy may also protect against colon cancer, which is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia.


The procedure helps to flush out debris, toxins and parasites, but also serves to exercise the bowel. During the procedure the patient feels warm water filling the colon, then will naturally get the urge to expel it. This contraction of the muscles of the colon is repeated many times during the 45 minute session, which helps to strengthen and improve the tone of the bowel. After a colonic hydrotherapy session, both electrolytes and good bacteria are replenished, hence the procedure involves both cleaning, exercising and "feeding" the bowel, all of which contributes to the long term health of the colon.


At Brunswick Holistic Health we use the latest TGA approved medical facility that ensures patient dignity is preserved. Sessions are held in private, the patient is covered at all times, and the rectal tube is self inserted. It is a single-use, soft plastic tube, about the width of a pencil that is inserted about 7cm into the rectum. Lubricant and disposable gloves are provided, and no pain is experienced.


The patient lies down during the treatment, and reading matter is provided. Some patients find the treatment quite soothing and relaxing.


There is an exhaust fan incorporated into the treatment bed and all the wastes are promptly flushed away, so odours are kept to a minimum. Beside the treatment bed is an illuminated viewing tube, which can be quite fasciniating, often reinforcing your decision to have colonic hydrotherapy!


Initial sessions commence with introductory information, then you are left in private for the duration of the hydrotherapy. If you need assistance at any stage during the treatment, staff are nearby ready to help.


After colonic hydrotherapy normal daily activities can be resumed.


The procedure is entirely safe, and all materials used are disposable. After each patient the machine is cleaned with hospital grade cleaning agents, so there is no risk of infection or cross contamination.


Colonic hydrotherapy should be considered as a treatment for digestive disorders, skin issues, general  detoxification, rejuvenation and improved health. Because when we remove the wastes from the body, it can function properly!
