Who are colonics for?

Almost anyone can benefit from a colon hydrotherapy treatment, whether they are currently experiencing digestive problems or not. An ARCH survey found that around 53% of our clients choose colonics for digestive problems, while the rest have the therapy for general health and wellbeing reasons. Of those surveyed, over 90% would recommend treatment.

Nicola is fully trained and registered with ARCH  (Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists). Training with to the highest standards with ARCH and Experience has shown Nicola that colonics can provide relief from the symptoms of a wide range of digestive disorders, including IBS, constipation, bloating and wind. Many of Nicolas clients find that colonics offer help where modern medicine has failed, especially where symptoms have been dismissed under the catch-all diagnosis of IBS.

However, colon hydrotherapy is not just for digestive problems, it can also work to keep your bowels healthy, in the same way that visiting the gym can help keep you fit.

Young or old, male or female, healthy or suffering, colon hydrotherapy is for almost everyone from all walks of life. However, there are a few circumstances in which the treatment is not recommended which are listed below.
