An Introduction to Colon Hydrotherapy

If you haven’t experienced Colon Hydrotherapy before and feel inquisitive or nervous about the procedure, then do watch these two short videos from The Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists, which demonstrates that the procedure is safe and gentle.

You will notice that one is performed on a Pressure Regulated Machine system and the other on a ‘Gravity’ System. They are both closed systems supervised by ARCH Therapists and achieve the same results.

This video shows a ‘Gravity’ System treatment.

The treatment in this video is the Pressure Regulated Machine system:


Colon Hydrotherapy was still used in hospitals up until the 1970’s when it was replaced by strong purgatives which are used for emptying the bowel before procedures or for treating faecal impaction.

So what is the difference?

* The colonic treatment stimulates bowel activity by using the body’s natural nerve and muscular response mechanisms, so it is essentially a natural treatment.

* Laxatives are used to initiate a response by acting in different ways, such as by irritation or reversing the osmotic gradient.

* By using the body’s natural nerve and muscular activity colonic hydrotherapy may help to tone and exercise the bowel, so helping waste evacuation during and after treatment.

"I met Fiona at a networking event about two years ago where she was giving a talk on Colon Hydrotherapy, and was immediately impressed with her knowledge and quiet, calm manner. I have been seeing Fiona for nutritional advice and regular colon hydrotherapy treatments ever since and highly recommend her. (I had been looking for someone to go to for colonics for years, and was very happy to finally find someone I felt comfortable with). Fiona gives regular talks to groups and offers her excellent treatments in Tunbridge Wells, Battle and Hastings.  She works to a very high professional standard and is gentle, caring and sensitive. I recommend her to many of my own clients as I feel that nutrition and colon hydrotherapy is so key to overall health and well being - certainly critical to skin condition!"
