Q – Are there any circumstances when a colonic treatment cannot be performed?

Yes, there are conditions where a colonic treatment would not be undertaken.

These include conditions such as active infections, active inflammation (for example, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, etc) a painful fissure or painful hemorrhoids.

In such cases treatment cannot be carried out until they are healed or in remission.

Some diseases such as congestive heart disease, severe uncontrolled hypertension, severe anaemia, liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, severe hemorrhaging and colorectal carcinoma are absolute contraindications to treatment as are some physical conditions such as severe abdominal or inguinal hernias which cannot be easily reduced.

If you as a client, or our therapists, are in any doubt, we will refer you to your G.P for advice.
Treatments are also not performed during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, and not at all during complicated pregnancies.

We always take a full case history before commencing a treatment. If there is any doubt we will refer you to your G.P.
