Colonic Hydrotherapy with Dominika Masnica
Colonic hydrotherapy session @ W3 Holistic is a hygienic and discreet procedure, during which the colon is repetetively gently filled with warm filtered water to encourage release of accumulated fecal matter, gas & mucus. This allows vital nutrients to be absorbed & leaves you feeling healthy & light. The treatment can also help re-tone & re-shape the colon.
The UK is the most constipated nation in the world – with 20,000 new cases of bowel cancer annually. Laxatives are the 2nd largest selling pharmaceuticals worldwide & antacids the 3rd. This situation is related to largely processed modern diet producing internal toxicity and widespread use of antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals that are detrimental to the condition of internal intestinal flora. Furthermore hectic and stressful lifestyles, that are a norm in today’s society, inhibit the function of internal organs and that of the nervous system, whose entire section ( the enteric nervous system), particularly the mood regulating components, is based in the gut .
Colonic hydrotherapy provides great symptomatic relief from discomforts associated with bowel disorders such as constipation or irritable bowel syndrome, but as any naturopathic procedure, the treatment aims to address root causes behind those symptoms and it is best used within a framework of dietary/ lifestyle adjustments and correct supplementation. The best thing about it is that colonics can be an invaluable diagnostic tool when it comes to pinpointing what is actually going on with your gut, as there is a number of cues in the released matter that a skilled therapist will be able to pick up on and identify. So whether you are seeking colonic irrigation for help with a specific digestive issue, or simply want to feel/ look better and have more energy in your life, you can be sure that combining the treatments with recommended adjustments will help you achieve your goals.
Some (but not all) benefits of colonic hydrotherapy include:
- Increased energy
- Improved circulation
- Clearer skin/eyes
- Enhanced mental clarity
- Weight balancing
- Better digestion
- Relief from bloating & heaviness
W3 Holistic provides colon hydrotherapy treatment using a closed gravity fed system and all the equipment used is disposable. I will adjust the temperature and pressure of filtered water flowing into your colon to ensure a comfortable experience. Abdominal massage will be performed throughout the treatment. Herbal or coffee enemas might be used as and when needed during the procedure.
Before your first treatment
Prior to your 1st treatment do not consume heavy foods (meat, cheese, fried foods, ice cream),fizzy drinks or large meals for 24-36 hours and drink plenty of water. The better you prepare the easier & more satisfying the session.
Anyone can benefit from a colonic as it is the most effective way of cleansing the body. However if you have been suffering from digestive complaints, you are likely to notice dramatic improvements. I will recommend a schedule of nutritional supplements to support the process according to the symptoms presented. Most people will benefit from a course of 3-12 colonics over a period of time, depending on individual requirement that can be assessed during the initial appointment. Discounts on courses of multiple treatments are available.

Colonics are not habit forming.
