Unlike other colonic treatments, we do a closed method of colonics.
You have the comfort and clinical support of having someone with you at all stages of the procedure.
There is no odour, you are covered up and can go back to your normal life after the colonic.
During your treatment you are lying on a Biomat which creates far infrared rays that penetrate 6-8 inches deep. This aids detoxfication, enhances immunity, kills bugs and reduces the stress hormone cortisol. During this process negative ions are also created by the molecules colliding and separating. Negative ions have an array of health benefits which include strength, energy and pain relief.
You also have the opportunity to hold the Powertube which use of 3 frequencies results in the rebalancing of the body creating wellness and balance of the molecular structure of blood which strongly enhances the human body’s ability to heal itself.
Colon Hydrotherapy / Irrigation Melbourne… A Forgotten Art

Common Questions And Answers
What is the purpose of getting a colonic?
Well, waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time, (i.e. impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.), poses several problems. First this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Second, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. And finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation.
How can I tell if I have toxic material in my colon?
This condition is prevalent in all civilized societies, and particularly in Australia.Common signs include: headaches, backaches, constipation, fatigue, bad breath, body odour, irritability, confusion, skin blemishes, abdominal gas, bloating, diarrhoea, sciatic pain, and so forth. As you can see, intestinal toxicity is part and parcel of many people’s everyday experience.
But the colon isn’t the only organ of elimination, what makes the colonic so important?
While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced throughout history that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and healed, the well being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colonic irrigation in Melbourne has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
Okay, it appears to be important to cleanse the colon, but why not use enemas, suppositories or laxatives instead?
Well, everything has its proper place, but those things really aren’t substitutes for colonics. Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum- the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon. Usually, one or two litres of water are used to do that. Suppositories are intended to accomplish the same task. Laxatives, particularly herbal laxatives are formulated for constipation, to build up the tone of the colon muscle, etc. But the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing with question is colonic irrigation in Melbourne.
What makes a colonic so special?
In a 30 to 45 minute session as much as 30 to 50litresof water is used to gently flush the colon. Through appropriate use of massage, pressure points, reflexology, breathing techniques, suggestion, etc., the colon therapist is able to work loose and eliminate far more toxic waste than any other short-term technique. Having an experienced colon therapist available as an assistant can be likened to having a professional mechanic repair your auto’s engine. The second, and subsequent colonics, will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives and the condition of your health.
What will colonic do to the colon?
Specifically, a colonic is used to accomplish the following: 1. Cleanse the colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even’ debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of irrigations. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to cooperate as it was meant to. In this very real sense a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment . 2. It exercises the colon muscles: The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material. 3. It reshapes the colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape, which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the colon therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of water and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state. 4. It stimulates reflex points: Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colonic irrigation stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way (similar to reflexology).
Does your colon now exhibit the signs of a well functioning colon?
If not, one or more sessions with a knowledgeable colon therapist may bring you great dividends.
Okay, it sounds like a colonic may be good for me, but will it be painful?
It rarely is. Usually, painful experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A professional colon therapist is skilled at putting you at ease and at minimizing discomfort. Most people actually enjoy colonic and especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean and clear afterward. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they occur, are brief and easily tolerated.
Is it embarrassing to get a colonic?
No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honoured. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out in a mildly pressured system. The mess and odour sometimes present during an enema simply does not exist with a colonic.
Is there anything I need to do to get ready for a colonic?
Since your abdomen will be massaged it is a good idea not to eat or drink 2 hours immediately preceding a colonic. We also give a three day diet for those that want a more effective colonic Also, emptying the rectum with a substantial bowel movement just prior to the colonic saves time and permits more to be accomplished.
And what can I expect afterwards?
Most likely, you’ll feel great. Probably you’ll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well being. Not infrequently, someone getting their first colonic will remark that it was one of the most wonderful experiences of their life. Any activity you would ordinarily be doing, such as work or exercise, is just fine to do. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won’t be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. More often you miss a day of bowel movements as your colon has to fill up again. It’s also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few minutes following a colonic. Some people feel tired as it triggers detoxification and pick up in a few hours.
I have been told that, to be beneficial, one needs to “take a series” of colonics. What does that mean, and is it true?
It’s important to be aware of your objective when working with a colon therapist. For example, if your objective is to quickly recover from the flu, or lower a fever, or eliminate a lower backache or headache, very possibly one or two colonics may be all that is needed. However, perhaps your objective is to overcome a lifelong habit of constipation, to learn to create multiple daily bowel movements and to achieve vital health. In addition to possible dietary, exercise and attitudinal changes, this may require regular colonics for some time. How many depends on the condition of your body and how well it responds to treatment. Having colonics regularly for a while, such as daily, weekly or multiple times per week, is what is referred to as a “series”. Many colon therapists believe that to obtain results of lasting benefit, a series of colonics must be undertaken. Again, this can only be properly considered once an objective has been identified.
If colonics are good, why haven’t I heard about them before?
In a way, the answer to that is a commentary on our present-day lifestyle. Historically, artifacts and records show that people have regularly purified their bodies, including cleansing the colon. Around the turn of the 20th century, the present-day colonic machine was developed, providing a significantly improved method of accomplishing colon cleansing. Up to the late 1920’s many medical doctors had colonic machines in their offices, and machines were found in hospitals as well. Articles dealing with colon health frequently appeared in prestigious medical and scientific journals until the early 1930s. At that time modern man began a 50-year love affair with drugs and surgery. These seemed to offer relatively instant relief for body ailments, resulting in purification and prevention techniques becoming less attractive. Recently, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in using natural approaches for healing the body, and colonics have rapidly been regaining the respectability they have already earned.
Are colonics dangerous in any way?
Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic. Skilled therapists will exercise extra care with an elderly person who is severely constipated. Also, colonics are never performed on a person with currently active ulcerative colitis, or following recent colon surgery. Our 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 colonic as well. All tubing and rectal tubes are disposable.
I am a woman. What if I’m having my period?
No problem – it’s perfectly safe and beneficial to have a colonic during your period. In fact, some women find having a colonic on the day of their period starts reduces the amount of menstrual discomfort experienced. While we’re on the subject, many women have noticed that after completing a cleansing program (also known as detoxification) that menstrual discomfort has been eliminated or substantially reduced from that time on.
I’m worried that I could become dependent on colonics. If I get too many, the colon may stop functioning on its own. Are colonics habit forming?
The colonic is a tool intended to be used to create a clean and healthy colon A colon therapist who is dedicated to your health will encourage you to set a goal of having a well-functioning colon. Our fulfillment comes from assisting you in healing your colon, not in making you dependent upon colonics. Actually, one of its better features is that a colonic can be used to tone the colon muscle so that the colon doesn’t perform so sluggishly. Many people have sluggish colons. It may take days for bowel movements to return after a good colonic. This is when people think they are becoming “dependent” on colonics. One good colonic is worth 20 to 30 regular bowel movements, so it may take some time for faecal material to build up in the colon once again if one has a sluggish colon. When the colon is sluggish and bowel movements do not return for a few days after one colonic, it is an indication that extensive colon work is needed to remove the debris that the bowel has built up over the years. This build up of faecal material has decreased the muscular action in the colon. Once a series of colonics is completed, the colon will begin to function more like Mother Nature had intended. Colonics give you a feeling of being lighter, cleaner and healthier with a sense of well-being. Cleansing and building programs offer preventive measures so that you can be in control of your own health. Dietary changes are usually necessary to ensure long lasting and vital health. We also work with Herbal Medicine and Nutrition. If necessary we carry out various tests on saliva, urine and faeces to determine gut function and imbalances.
Will a colonic make me constipated or give me diarrhoea?
The most frequent post-colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes, if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowl movement for several days following a colonic. However, this is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the colon, and should be interpreted as an indication that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Very infrequently diarrhoea or loose bowels may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of toxic waste. If this should occur, it is of very short duration. However, since severe diarrhoea dehydrates the body, it must be carefully monitored.
Suppose I have been suffering from constipation for a long time, will colonics help?
We want to state that constipation can be successfully treated with natural, harmless techniques, including the use of colonics. Constipation is one of what may be termed “civilized man’s diseases.” While a typical Canadian has 5 or 6 bowel movements per week, it is not unusual for a rural African to have 3 a day. There are four factors involved in having a well functioning colon: diet, hydration, exercise and attitude. All four must be in balance for the colon to function well. Often, however, because the colon has been sluggish for so long, it has become severely weakened due to being constantly bathed in toxic waste, stretched from holding excessive stool, and frequently, constricted by chronic tension in the colon. The process of colonic irrigation is excellent for cleansing and healing the colon sufficiently so that changes in diet, exercise and attitude are then able to produce their effects. Many people find the relief provided by colonics stimulates the motivation and enthusiasm to institute positive changes in their lifestyle.
Some people say that colonics wash out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients. Is this so?
The truth is that washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine, which is only partially reached in any colon irrigation increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment, which has been washed free of putrefaction and its accompanying harmful bacteria. That is why the intestines of a newborn born baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying garbage and make a better environment for the flora, they start to multiply immediately, in their natural media. It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can better be absorbed in clean environment than in a putrefied Environment. You are given bowel flora at the end of each session and if necessary it will be prescribed usually for a month or so.
With all this talk of bacteria, I wonder what effect colonic irrigation has on our immune system?
The removal of stagnant waster material and hardened impacted toxic residue could rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides in the intestines. Recent European studies speculate that 80% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. This is much higher than previously thought and makes it logical to believe that this type of therapy could influence such immune deficiency diseases as cancer and A.I.D.S. Colon hydrotherapy / irrigation in Melbourne is not a cure-all, but an important adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the patient.
How long does a colonic take?
Probably 90% of all colonics take between 30 and 45 minutes. It could also be shorter or longer than that, based upon the judgment of the therapist and sometimes, the wishes of the patient. There will also be about 15 minutes required for changing and a Deep Intestinal Massage For your first colonic you should be prepared to spend about an hour and a half at the clinic.
Is there a special kind of water used for colonic irrigation?
The best type of water to use for colonics is filtered energised water which we use. This kind of water is capable of absorbing and flushing more toxins out of the colon because it’s drawing effect on solid particles, chemicals and particular matter. Tap water already has numerous chemicals and inorganic substances present.
I’m wondering what will be okay to eat after getting a colonic?
What we suggest is that you eat a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn’t make any sense to get your car washed and then drive it immediately through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after getting a colonic isn’t an intelligent choice. Salads, vegetable soups, vegetable broth, fruit, fruit and vegetable juices are the best choice.
Will one colonic completely empty the colon?
Almost never – first of all, many of us have a considerable amount of impacted faeces in our colon. This is hardened, rubbery or wallpaper-like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Second, there is a subtle learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen and as your body learns to allow the cleansing experience,your are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will remove some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives and your health.
How will I know when the colon is empty?
It will probably never be completely empty, as it is an organ in continuous use. As more of the old, impacted material is released you will actually feel the water enter higher regions of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective ought not to be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.
Will a colonic clear up my skin?
Your skin actually “breathes” and is an important organ of elimination of waste material. Sometimes, if the colon, liver or kidneys are functioning poorly, the skin will be required to make up the difference. Surface eruptions on the skin of various sorts may occur due to toxins being released. Cleansing and healing the colon diminishes the burden placed upon the skin as well as on the other organs of elimination: lungs, liver and kidneys. As elimination is accomplished through its proper channels, the skin will very often clear up.

Colonic Preparation – What do I do before the first treatment?
The following diet is recommended to start the cleansing process, and give you value for money. If you are diabetic, or on a special diet, adjust the diet accordingly. Organic food is advised. If this is too harsh for you just do your best. The week before your colonics:
- Increase vegetables, fruit, brown rice and whole foods.
- Decrease stimulants like coffee, additives, tinned and packaged food.
- Drink plenty of water away from meals.
- Brown rice
- Vegetables in any form – e.g. soups, salads, steamed vegetables, juices – preferably vegetable – e.g. carrot, beetroot, celery, ginger
2 days before the colonic:
The same, but omit brown rice.If you are hungry make the veggie soups thick by adding pumpkin and potato.
1 day before:
Fluids only – e.g. soups, juices, herbal teas
On the Day:
Nothing to eat or drink 2 hours before the treatment (a full bladder is uncomfortable) Depending on the time of the treatment you may have a healthy breakfast – e.g. yogurt and fruit. You may want to bring something light to eat afterwards – e.g. a piece of fruit.
Procedure for First Colonic Irrigation
You will be asked certain medical and a health question to make sure that it is not dangerous to receive colonic irrigations. Also, your objective for receiving colon irrigations will be discussed. Any questions or concerns may be answered for your comfort at this time as well. Following this procedure you will be instructed to prepare for a colonic and to alleviate any bladder or bowel pressure at that time.
Next, you will enter the colon irrigation room. First a Deep Intestinal Massage will take place if applicable. Instructions will be given how to lie on the table while gentle insertion of the rectal tube is accomplished.
Filling and flushing of water into and out of the colon is the next process. Waste material can be viewed by the patient with a specially designed, tilted mirror. Cleansing of the colon lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes depending on the judgment of the colon therapist. You will be asked to turn on your side and back during a colonic so that the water can reach as much of your colon as possible.
When your colonic is completed, gentle withdrawal of the rectal tube is performed and instructions to relieve possible remaining water and waste material are given. After this is done the colonic irrigation is completed and you can resume you normal duties of the day.
