What is Colon Irrigation?

Colon irrigation is a type of complementary therapy that uses a gentle stream of warm, filtered water to cleanse the colon and eliminate faecal matter, mucus, gas and other toxins that cause a myriad of health problems. A colonic machine releases the purified water through the tubing attached to the rectum via a speculum. During a treatment session, you may also get some gentle abdominal massage from the therapist to aid movement of your bowel.
