Q: When should somebody consider Colonics?
A: If you suffer from digestive problems or are interested in cleansing and improving your digestive system then this treatment is ideal. Colonic Irrigation helps the body release toxins and reduces fluid retention and bloating. Colonic Irrigation is helpful to anybody with an interest in improving their health both immediately as a ‘kick start’ and for long-term health issues.
Q: What do you do to prepare for a Colonic Hydrotherapy session?
A: It is ideal to drink plenty of water a few days before. Avoid red meats, alcohol, processed or overly heavy/rich foods. You should leave 2 hours space between eating and you’re colonic. Clients are fine to work as normal and to eat normally with the above advice followed.
Q: How many Colonic Hydrotherapy sessions are ideal?
A: Between 4 and 6 are usually recommended, 6 is ideal to detox the body appropriately and release toxins stored within the colon and bodily tissue. A gap of 1 to 4 weeks between treatments is normal depending how quickly clients want to move through the program. In cases of Constipation, and sluggish bowels rehabilitating the colon muscles and nerve fibres can take a little longer (6 to 8 sessions) and with gaps of no longer than 2 weeks. The Liver, Colon, Bowel, Skin, Lungs and reproductive organs are all areas of elimination and need support in their daily detoxing if we want to feel good and prevent health problems.
Q:Does Colonic Hydrotherapy feel uncomfortable?
Often client do not experience any discomfort. Every client will experience the sensation of going to the toilet as the water triggers muscular activity. As the water created muscle release gas and stool are eliminated. These sensations happen regularly throughout the treatment approx 45-50mins. If a client is very bloated and has a lot of trapped gas they may well experience cramping and some abdominal pains that are of an acute nature. Often people get goose bumps and might feel like they have diarrhoea momentarily. Literally every Client I have ever seen Says its "not half as bad as they thought it was going to be".
"Claire's massage is very deep and does hurt if I have particular knot and tight tissue but it doesn't take long for that to ease and for me to feel much better. There is a nice balance of relaxing within each treatment and I do love my head being done".TK
"Q:Will Massage help a chronic back problem, even if it is a really old injury?
Yes certainly. Massage is hands on healing, a soon as the muscles in the back are relieved of muscular tension, through gentle pressure and movements, then the clients pain can be released and the healing can take place.
Q:Will Massage just be relaxing? Or will it hurt?
Massage can be extremely relaxing but if Clients have a lot of muscular tension then it can feel very painful in spots. Deep tissue massage is necessary when areas of the body are tight and painful, the pressure is deep and will be felt but with time this really easies. During a treatment there will be a mix or relaxation and deep tissue work. Within the first weeks treatment a significant difference in levels of pain and movement is experience by clients. Individuals feel much more comfortable and more flexible.
Q:Do I have to have lots Massage treatment to see results?
Chronic back problems will require a number of treatment usually with a weekly then fortnightly gap between (approx 4 treatments) until the muscular tension has been more deeply released, then a maintenance treatment every month or three months is suggested.
