The Summer period is a time of holidays, relaxation and indulgence – particularly when it comes to food… However, eating so many different types of foods and such large quantities will increase the amount of harmful toxins and excess matter in our bodies; in fact, our colons, which make up 80% of the immune system, may carry up to 8lbs of excess matter! This can cause us to feel uncomfortable, bloated, constipated, fatigued and can even cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome – any of which may impact our mood and wellbeing during the festive season.

While it may sound daunting at first, Colon Hydrotherapy and Enema are the most effective treatments to safely detoxify the body. By hydrating the colon to break down old faecal matter using one of the most advanced Colonic machines in the industry, the Herrmann Hydromat, these treatments prioritise your comfort and safety while successfully flushing out waste to make you feel lighter and revitalised.

How Do Colonics and Enema Work?

Colon hydrotherapy is a quick and effective process that cleanses the colon of toxins that have built up over the years. It involves inserting a small tube into your colon – a quick and pain-free process that takes only a few seconds – that is connected to our state-of-the-art Colon Machine, which allows temperature-controlled, filtered water to flow through the colon at a safe and monitored rate.

When filled with water, your intestines will relax, which creates wave-like movements that move the contents forwards; waste and toxins, which may harm the body or impair bodily functions, are naturally expelled, and old substances and solid faeces are removed from the intestinal wall. During your treatment, which is tailored to your individual requirements, your therapist may alter the temperature of the water to help remove the impacted matter and encourage movement of waste. The waste is flushed out via a transparent pipe which allows the therapist to monitor what is being expelled from the body. The therapist may also gently massage your abdomen to help displace faecal matter to move the process along.

In removing these toxins, your bodily functions will improve, including your body’s ability to:

  • absorb nutrients and water;
  • digest food;
  • repair itself.

Therefore, your energy levels will increase, giving you a healthy glow; making you look and feel great from the inside, out!

What are the Benefits of a Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment?

Colon Hydrotherapy has a myriad of health benefits for the body, including:

  • Feeling lighter and revitalised;
  • Noticeably reduced bloating;
  • Weight loss as a result of the removal of old waste from the colon;
  • Increased energy;
  • Improved function of the digestive system.

Types of Enema Treatments

For added health benefits, enemas are usually infused with a natural solution, such as probiotics or coffee. Here is a guide to different types of enema treatments at The Greenwich Spa and the many benefits they provide.

Flush and Cleanse the Liver: Colon Hydrotherapy and Coffee Enema

Coffee Enemas involve inserting a mixture of purified water and caffeinated coffee into the colon. The coffee contains detoxifying antioxidants that restore the body’s chemical balance, while the caffeine stimulates the liver and expels toxins that have built up within your body.


  • Detoxifies the liver and gallbladder;
  • Boosts immunity;
  • Increases energy;
  • Stops yeast overgrowth;
  • Improves digestion and cleanse the colon;
  • Reduces IBS;
  • Relieves constipation.

Kill Parasites: Colon Hydrotherapy and Parasite Enema

Parasites that live in your intestines may cause several health issues, such as diarrhoea and abdominal pain, however, they may also reside within your body for years without causing any symptoms whatsoever. Therefore, not only do Parasite Enemas eliminate such symptoms, but they are also effective in eradicating intestinal parasites that you are unaware of.


  • Eliminates parasitic infections;
  • Reduces fatigue;
  • Alleviates symptoms such as: diarrhoea, abdominal pain and insomnia;

Relax and Sooth the Intestines: Colon Hydrotherapy and Calming Camomile Enema

When used in an enema, Chamomile, which is known for its calming properties, relaxes the colon.


  • reduces intestinal cramping caused by gut inflammation;
  • eases anxiety levels;
  • increases the amount of waste removed from the body during the treatment.

Improved Digestive Function: Colon Hydrotherapy and Probiotic Enema

Using probiotics in an enema solution will replenish the healthy bacteria in your gut, which will not only reduce gut inflammation, but will also speed up recovery following a course of antibiotics.


  • increased levels of healthy bacteria in your gut;
  • improved digestion;
  • faster recovery following infections that require antibiotics;
