FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
When you come to the Clinic either Nicole (our receptionist) or I will greet you, you will then be asked to fill in a confidential health questionnaire, when you have completed this I will go through your form with you and discuss any health issues that you may have and answer any questions. I will then explain the treatment to you, what the treatment involes and what you can expect etc. This is to ensure that you are completely happy to proceed with the treatment, if you are then I will ask you to go into the ensuite and change into a disposable hospitale type gown.The treatment itself take 30-45 minutes during which time water will be gently introduced into the colon via the rectum whilst I use special massage techniques to stimulate release of stored matter. Your modesty is preserved at all times by the gown and a towel. After the treatment is over I will discuss with you how the treatment went, whether I feel you would benefit from any further treatments,or anything else I feel you may benefit from and answer any questions you may have. At all times I will try my very best to make you feel at ease,and relaxed. No fasting or special measures are necessary prior to your first treatment, but colon cleansing herbs may be advised between treatments.
IS IT EMBARRASSING ?
No, at all times you will fully maintain your personal dignity. The treatment room is private with ensuite faciliand there will be only be the two of us present, I fully appreciate the sensitivity of the treatment and try my best to put you at ease.
During the treatment your abdomen will be massaged so it is not a good idea to eat a heavy meal prior to a treatment,also helpful, but not at all essential a bowel movement prior to the treatment will allow more time during the treatment to achieve a better result.
You will most likely feel great. You may feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well being. You can carry on your day as normal, you may have a bowel movement later that day you may not it very much depends on the individual.
ARE COLONICS DANGEROUS IN ANY WAY ?
Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic treatment. My intent is to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. Cleaning and sterilization of the necessary equipment is done as normal procedure and clean linen is used for each treatment.
