There is growing demand for professionally qualified colon therapists as more people turn to this form of treatment for a range of health benefits. Formal training not only allows you to practice safely it gives you the opportunity to enter the job market with a new skill set.
Colonic irrigation may not only help to maintain healthy bowel function, it may also help to maintain optimal holistic health while providing relief from a range of conditions. Qualified practitioners typically join an existing practice, establish their own or bring these new skills to an existing role. Graduates need to be certified as a colon hydrotherapist to be allowed to practice.
Colonic Irrigation Study Options
Training courses cater for those with no previous health training as well as existing practitioners, e.g. nurses, looking to advance their careers. Besides fast paced intensive courses, which are popular for time poor students there are also Certificate and Diploma level courses which run over longer time frames. Courses can be a mixture of distance learning and intensive training days comprised of workshops and seminars. More conventional campus based study will typically occur on a full time basis.
