Please note that I do NOT have EFTPOS facilities at Aroha Health Spa, so please bring the appropriate amount in cash or cheque to your session. Thank you!
For optimum results, 3 consecutive sessions within a week or two are recommended. For chronic ailments a series of 10 colonics is recommended with 1 or 2 sessions per week. As a preventative measure having 1 session a month is a good maintenance routine. During cleansing or fasting programs a series of 3 to 6 colonics is recommended to gain the most benefit from your cleanse.

How should I prepare for my Colonic?
Eat as many water content foods as possible over the few days prior to your colonic. Examples: raw and cooked green leafy vegetables, raw vegetable drinks and whole grains. This will start moistening up the colon for better elimination.
Try to cut down on all processed foods. Examples: white flour products, cheese, dried foods, greasy foods and sugar. These foods dehydrate the colon and make elimination tougher.
Stop drinking liquids 1 hour before. You don't want your bladder full before a colonic.
No diuretics prior to colonic. This would be coffee, tea or soda. This also makes your bladder full.
No foods about 2 hours before your colonic. No fasting is necessary prior to a treatment, and the few dietary adjustments we recommend will greatly enhance the results. We believe these are very important and we encourage you to follow them in order to get the maximum benefits from your treatments.
What should I do immediately before a session? It is advisable to refrain from eating or drinking (except water) anything two hours prior to your scheduled appointment. This is to avoid feelings of nausea, as well as ensuring maximum comfort during your Colon Hydrotherapy session.
What kind of diet should I follow immediately after a Colon Hydrotherapy session? Following a cleansing of the large intestinal, the body may feel weary or relaxed or energized. This is simply your body working out and processing through this cleansing period; proper rest is important at this time to give your body time to rejuvenate.
Immediately after receiving Colon Hydrotherapy, it is important to:
Drink plenty of liquids (purified water, juices, herb teas, pro-biotic drinks, and electrolyte liquids).
Eat a healthy vegetable soup within the next couple of hours.
Avoid eating raw vegetables straight after the treatment. Steamed vegetables and raw fruit are sufficient (to be chewed very thoroughly).
Reduce meat and dairy consumption (especially beef, pork as well as chicken), alcohol, caffeine and sugar intake.
