Colonic Hydropathy Education

Dr Wood Gravity System of Colon Hydrotherapy® Training

Natural Method of Gravity of Colonic Hydrotherapy
Dr. Wood Natural Gravity Method is natural and gentle because the flows (of water inlet and waste exit) occur by natural dynamics:
gravity and pressure level in case of water inlet, and rhythms of
natural colon saturation for expulsions.
All this makes the Dr. Wood Natural Gravity Method very comfortable, practical and natural.

Requirement prior to taking the Course

  In order to take the Practice Clinician in Colon Hydropathy Course students must take first the Therapist in Colon Hydropathy Course.

  Please be advised: The School is aware of "courses" being offered which claim to make you a "Therapist" in around and around "1 to 2 weeks", this is wishful thinking, those courses after looking at their syllabus and reading material can make an individual a Colon Hygienist not a Therapist.

  Please Note: If you have taken a Colon Hydrotherapy "course" else where, we need to see the syllabus and training material/course manual first, along with the number
  of classroom hours, and clinical practice hours, in order to assess if you have been given the very basic level skills needed in which we can build up.

       Course objectives

As a Colon Hydropathy Therapist or Practitioner, your clients could include individuals wanting to improve their general health and wellbeing, as well as those with certain health conditions who want some relief from their symptoms.

Colon Hydropathy Therapists and Practitioners start a session by taking details from the patient about their Health History, lifestyle, diet, and any symptoms or areas of concern. They also then discuss an appropriate treatment programme with the client.

During treatment:

- Insert a speculum tube filled with filtered water (warmed to body temperature) into the client's body;

- Repeatedly flush the tube with water to cleanse the colon and rid the body of any waste products;

- You may massage the client's abdomen and other pressure points.

When the treatment is finished, you must follow health and safety procedures to dispose of any body solids and fluids, and prepare the clinical room and sterilise all equipment ready for your next client. Your work may also include giving advice to patients about ways to further improve their health, diet and lifestyle. You may need to refer some clients on to other suitable health care professionals such as Hydropathy Practitioners, Osteopaths or Chiropractors.

Clinical Skills & Knowledge

Colonic training can be a powerful therapeutic tool in any health clinic settings, in addition to other health care treatment clinics, health spas and massage therapy centres or practices. On average a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment session usually lasts 45 minutes to an hour. Typically, the colon is rinsed using 25 to 75 litres of clean filtered and warm water. A separate tube removes the water along with any debris. In addition, the Colon Hydrotherapy Hygienist, Therapist or Practitioner may use other treatment methods such as abdominal massage or relaxation techniques, and may administer any enemas or probiotics, or others.
