About Bowtech - Bowen Therapy
A gentle form of body work in which very subtle moves performed over muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing. This treatment is considered to be appropriate for anyone from pregnant women to newborn babies, the frail and the elderly. It can assist in the recovery of many conditions from traumatic injury to chronic illness.
What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Colonic Hydrotherapy (or Colonic irrigations) is a process that cleans out the colon, or large intestine, the final part of the body’s digestive tract. The colon is about five feet long.
A colonic irrigation involves gently filling the colon with warmed filtered water, and then releasing this water from the body through tubing and then out through the clinic’s sewage system - no mess and no odour. All this is done with the client lying comfortably on a bed.
To get the best results from this treatment it is recommended that you have a series of at least three or four treatments over the course of a week to ten days. It’s impossible to clean all five feet in only one or two treatments. Occasionally, five, six or even more treatments may be required - it all depends on the state of the bowel, and what comes out. Your therapist will be able to advise you of this during your treatments.
Why Colonic Hydrotherapy?
The colon’s job is to absorb water and essential vitamins from digested foods before it passes indigestible wastes out of the body via the rectum.
Waste that accumulates in the colon (because it adheres to the colon wall) or just gets “stuck” can become quite toxic. Toxins released from this waste can pass in to the bloodstream and circulate around the body. This may be the reason why people feel tired, lethargic, ill, weak, or just not “right”! Colonic Hydrotherapy assists the body to eliminate these accumulated wastes and therefore eliminates a toxic “reservoir”. The result is not only a healthier better functioning colon but an individual who is more energetic and full of the joys of life.
What does Colonic Hydrotherapy involve?
Please be assured that your personal dignity is maintained at all times. You will be in a private room with only the therapist (who remains present throughout the procedure).
A small tube is gently inserted into the rectum to which plastic tubing is attached. This tubing carries clean water into and waste out from the colon.
Each treatment session takes about 45 minutes. Many people find a colonic irrigation to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Occasionally, some people may experience slight cramping type sensations within the bowel. This is quite normal, and is an indication that the bowel is about to release waste material.
Following a Colonic Hydrotherapy session you may eat and drink as normal.

About Relaxation Massage
A one hour session where you are assisted to relax and unwind. Many clients end up drifting off to sleep, or falling into a very relaxed state.
About Ear Candling
An ancient American - Indian tradition where specially designed candles are gently inserted into the ear canal. The heat from the candle gently draws fluid and built up wax and other material from within the ear. The result is a wonderfully “clean” and light feeling within the ears.
