You can be sure that our standards are of the highest level as we are registered and inspected to ensure our clinic meets the rigorous standards of the Association & Register of Colonic Hydrotherapists.
clinic was started by Wendy Russell-Rayner BA(Hons)
BSc(Hons) ND MACH, a Registered Osteopath who realised
that many patients with musculoskeletal aches and pains
have bowel and digestive problems. These problems are
now recognised to be the underlying cause of toxicity
which can cause minor problems such skin blemishes,
bad breath or back pains, to more unpleasant conditions
such as uncomfortable bloating, irritable bowel and
inflammatory bowel conditions. We have a holistic approach
to health and are medically trained with access to
laboratory testing facilities. We can supply laboratory
tests for you by post if you wish.

or colon hydrotherapy,. We can design a treatment specifically
for your needs, whether it be an occasional colonic
hydrotherapy treatment or a more in depth investigation,
where colon hydrotherapy may be included as part of

Hydrotherapy for Detoxification or Rejuvenation
clients wish to have the occasional colonic hydrotherapy
treatment for rejuvination, well being, detoxification
or to springboard a diet. It is quite popular for a
colon hydrotherapy treatment to be bought as a gift.
You will enjoy our beautiful and comfortable treatment
room where you can listen to music if you wish. A friend
or partner can be present if you prefer, or we have
comfortable waiting facilities. We will have to take
a full medical history at your first treatment to find
out your aims for treatment and ensure that colonic
hydrotherapy is appropriate for your needs. If you
wish we can analyse your diet and give you nutritional
advice. We will be able to identify areas of your digestive
system which are not functioning to optimum capacity,
enabling you to make lifestyle and dietary changes
which will enhance energy levels, circulation and immunity
and limit the development of future problems.
Colon Hydrotherapy for a Specific Condition
Some clients have more long standing conditions such as
flatulence, irritable bowel, chronic constipation,
or conditions such as ulcerative colitis or candida.
In these cases we can devise a treatment programme
with you. Our aim is to retrain the colon and to bring
you back to optimum health.
Often our clients have suffered with uncomfortable
and difficult conditions for years. They have
exhausted medical investigations and been disappointed
with conventional medical treatment. This often
entails ever increasing prescription of laxative
medication or anti spasmodic drugs, which result
in the colon becoming sluggish and less likely
to return to full health.
We will be able to advise you about the cause of
your problem and if necessary have access to
laboratory facilities and testing, some of which
is far superior to that available in the UK at
this time (and not available through the National
Health Service). For example the NHS faecal stool
test is only 58% reliable in the detection of
colon cancer, whereas we can offer a test which
has 90% reliability. This is a non invasive stool
test and has the same accuracy as an unpleasant
and invasive colonoscopy.
We will analyse your diet and your nutrition to establish
whether you have any problems digesting carbohydrates,
fats or proteins. We will also analyse where in the
digestive process there may be difficulties and make
suggestions to help alleviate the situation. We can
suggest supplements to help your treatment and can
advise which laboratory tests may be appropriate for
You may make an appointment with us to discuss your situation
and for us to advise you as to what we would suggest
in your particular situation. We would always take
a full case history from you in order so that we understand
your needs.If necessary we can liaise with your GP
or medical specialist. Colon Hydrotherapy may form
part of your treatment and would benefit anybody, but
you can decide whether to just see us for a 45 minute
full consultation, without colon hydrotherapy.
Laboratory Tests Available
You do not have to attend our clinic to obtain these
tests. They can be ordered from us on-line and will
be sent out by post to you within 24 hours. Some
tests require stool samples, urine samples or breath
samples.These can be done in the comfort of your
own home. Some tests require blood samples, (which
if you are near to us we will take free of charge).
Otherwise you should be able to obtain them from
Laboratory tests provide evidence that can identify the cause
of your signs and symptoms. We can help you identify
the most appropriate tests for you. We are qualified
to take blood samples if required, but some tests require
hair, stool, breath or urine and may be conducted at
home.You may choose to order these tests to complete
at home, rather than having a consultation with us.
You may order the tests through us directly with the
laboratory. We will send you the results together with
our observations and you can choose to discuss this
with us at a later stage.
pollution, processed foods, stress and a busy lifestyle
it is easy for nutrition and the digestive system to
be out of sorts. Your health depends on bacterial balance
and your ability to properly absorb and synthesise
proteins, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins. If these
are not ideal you may well have symptoms of fatigue,
bloating, flatulence, constipation, diahorrhea, depression,
lack of energy, depression, mood swings, anxiety or
these tests are carried out by our professional, scientific
laboratory Genova Diagnostics. These are generally
considered to be the world leader in diagnostic testing.
This laboratory hold sole patent rights to some tests
which are unavailable anywhere else in the world. We
only use tests not available or easily available on
the NHS and would advise you if you should ask your
GP for NHS testing.
PLEASE SPEAK TO US IF YOU WISH OTHER TESTS NOT DESCRIBED HERE AS WE CAN PROVIDE LABORATORY TESTING FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF CONDITIONS INCLUDING MALE AND FEMALE FERTILITY
The colon forms the last part of the digestive tract.
The colon is also a major excretory organ whose additional
functions are to absorb water soluble nutrients plus
synthesise certain vitamins. Stress, pollution, poor
diet, food additives, alcohol and constipation lead
to faecal matter sticking to the colon wall, sometimes
forming little ‘pockets’. The average
amount of debris lodged in the colon is between 3-5lb.
This can lead to bowel conditions such as constipation,
irritable bowel or diverticulitis. Colon Hydrotherapy
or Colonic Irrigation is a gentle infusion of warm,
purified water that can help to gently cleanse the
bowel of mucus and old, toxic residues. This can
help to retrain the colon and improve its function.
treatment can also indicate the presence of parasites
or whether there is difficulty breaking down proteins,
carbohydrates or fats, or too much mucus production.
