The Healthy Gut Centre is currently Darwin’s only colon hydrotherapy centre where the closed method of colonics is used. This means that a qualified practitioner is with you during your session and will be guiding your session for you.


Historians tell us that the practice of bowel cleansing was first used by the Egyptians as a cleansing ritual. In our modern day our bodies are under strain trying to detoxify from every stresses of life and lack of quality food and this is why colon hydrotherapy has become such a popular treatment. At The Healthy Gut Centre, we can help you maintain good digestion and bowel health, find inner balance and assist in the detoxification and cleansing process of your body. Allow your body to cleanse physically, mentally and emotionally through a colon hydrotherapy treatment.


What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a relaxing, rejuvenating and highly effective method of cleansing the colon (also known as the bowel or large intestine). This involves the safe, gentle infusion of water into the colon via the rectum. Colon Hydrotherapy works with your body to allow it to cleanse and remove stubborn waste that has built up over time. The Healthy Gut Centre uses only disposable equipment and no chemicals or drugs are used during your treatment. Most people regain a sense of inner balance and wellbeing and the entire treatment is relaxing, effective and detoxifying for the body.

  • Increase metabolism, decrease abdominal discomfort and maintain healthy movement of wastes.


It is almost unavoidable in our modern age not to be exposed to both air and nutritional pollution. The colon is the sewerage system of the body and if wastes are allowed to build up they begin to putrefy and ferment over time causing toxicity in the body. The digestive system is affected causing you to become distressed and bloated and unable to properly digest and absorb nutrients from your food. These toxins also pollute the blood, contributing to unhealthy skin, bad breath and body odour, leaky gut and a range of digestive disorders.


Preparation and After Care

Depending on your lifestyle and what you aim to get from your colonic your preparation can be as relaxed or dedicated as you like. Some like to juice cleanse or fast while having their treatments and others just attend during their lunch hour with little or no preparation.


As a general guide, we would recommend to eat lighter around the time of your colonic, be reasonably hydrated on the day and allow at least two hours before your last meal.
