how does it work?

This is unique to the ‘LIBBE’ state of the art colonic hydrotherapy systems and provides more comfort than traditional machines. Our qualified therapist can assist you through the whole process, or if you prefer, you can choose to be left in solitude. The soft lighting and music creates a restful ambience for complete relaxation as you cleanse.
how many treatments do I need?
A number of treatments are normally required to thoroughly cleanse the six feet of the colon. Your colonic hydrotherapist will design a personal program for you during your first visit.
frequently asked questions
To put you at ease below you will find the answers to many of the questions that people who are new to colonic hydrotherapy ask:
is colonic hydrotherapy embarrassing?
It’s actually a very relaxing experience and there is no mess, fuss or odour. A tube is gently inserted one inch into your bottom you are completely covered during the entire procedure.
is the procedure painful?
Very rarely. Sometimes during the procedure, the muscles of the colon contract suddenly, expelling considerable liquid and waste into the rectum. This pressure in the rectum may feel like cramping or gas. Most of the process is mild and gentle that leaves you with a wonderfully light and empty feeling afterwards.
will one cleansing completely empty the colon?
Almost never. Many of us may have up to 12 kilos or more of hardened faeces in our colon so substantial work needs to be done to remove it. One cleansing will remove some, the second, more. The number of colonics you wish to have is completely determined by your personal objectives.
does colonic hydrotherapy wash away all bacteria, even the good?
If your bowel is toxic, it means you have little or not good intestinal flora to begin with. And just like gardening, if you don’t prepare the soil and fertilise the ground, plants can’t live and thrive.
While helpful bacteria can only live in an acidic environment, harmful ones thrive in an alkaline environment. Due to years of improper eating, lack of exercise and poor elimination, most people have an alkaline colon. The cleansing program changes your colon environment from alkaline to acid. Here bifidophilus and acidophilus cultures (the good bacteria) will populate.
Removing toxic material and gases is the first step. Replenishing good bacteria can be accomplished with oral suppliments, bifidophilus and acidophilus after your colonic treatment.
what other benefits may I expect from colonic hydrotherapy?
Colonic hydrotherapy is not a cure. It’s a valuable procedure used to help a wide variety of colon-related conditions. By toning your bowel wall and improving your colon functions, your entire body functions more efficiently.
common benefits in addition to those mentioned above include:
- sinus drainage
- loosening of mucous in the lungs
- clearing up acne and skin conditions
- remove sources of disease
- reduce the burden on other organs and lymphatic system.
will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same results?
By using an enema, you miss some of the colon. During a colonic cleanse, the water goes all the way through the colon or bowel to the ileocecal valve (this is where the small and large intestine meet). However, if you don’t have access to a colonic, an enema can be a good option for immediately removing toxins.
Laxatives are an irritant that cause your body to produce a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon. Laxatives can also become very habit forming.
can I become dependent on it? could my colon stop functioning on its own?
Colonic hydrotherapy retrains the muscle of your bowel to regain strength. The bowel muscle is forced to work against the water, much like a weight provides resistance against a muscle in bodybuilding. After your bowel has regained its strength, it works better on its own. Colonics are like “colon aerobics.”
is the procedure safe and sanitary?
Lily room only use high-tech disposable apparatus, and out equipment is made “new” every session. For you this means total hygienic safety, superior even to sterilisation.
what healing benefits can it offer?
- improve skin tone
- assists with weight loss
- improve energy levels
- reduced stress

Recent studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. Our sauna uses safe, natural infrared rays to remove these lifelong accumulated toxins and heavy metals by producing more sweat than in a traditional sauna without the need for high temperatures.
With a built-in TV and DVD system, Lily room infrared sauna offers the perfect way to relax and unwind as a reward on its own, or before a relaxing massage or body treatment.
