West London Colonics

Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Start to 2015 from Julia Rhodes at West London Colonics

The ides of March:The freshly minted year full of promise moves into ithe end of its first quarter: Keep your motivation & action for healthful changeon the up & up.

Why not use the change of season as motivation to re-set your body to a higher standard of energy? Make the most of your Resolve & Resolutions ....

Why not Set up to have a Colonic ?

At West London Colonics ( www.westlondoncolonics.com ) we offer a modern, professional approach to one of the most ancient holistic health practices, combining state of the art technology with the natural cleansing process to help you achieve optimum wellbeing.

After all, as the Naturopathic Doctor, Gloria Gilbere, has said:

"The road to health is paved with good intestines."

If you are a prospective client looking at this page we imagine you have done your research, and know something about the theory of colon hydrotherapy.The immediate question you may want answered now is: Why should you trust your colon to West London Colonics, rather than another clinic?

We have our own ideas about this, however it’s much better to let our clients speak for us………

What our clients have said

At last count we had 88 feedback comments (mostly on this site, although 2 of them are not on Wahanda; and 6- that of Alison,Claire, Ang-Ang , LIq , Hannah & Barbara- are posted in this narrative section ).

This is a sufficient number to allow prospective clients to get a representative sense of our service ethos. Some stats: 53 of these reviews were posted in the last 12 months. 66 reviews are Five star reviews ; 19 are Four star, and 4 are Three star or lower. We now average around 4 client reviews a month. Fully 11 % of our total client base (of approx 800) have posted reviews.( In 2014, our reviwer rate was 15%). Also, unlike the reviews you will see for some other clinics, ALL client reviews for WLC relate solely to colon hydrotherapy services. If that's what you are looking for, then these reviews are 100% relevant .

[If you do look at the detailed reviews, and we hope you do, we apologise for one glitch . Some of my (Julias ) 'comments' have been duplicated numerous times, in error, for some of the earlier reviews. Unfortunately, editing fuctions are disabled once the item is sent, and we are unable to undo them. If you only view the more recent reviews this will not be an issue for you.

If reading reviews in detail is not for you, then you may like that we have paraphrased the gist of some of the detailed client feedback. You can then decide if you want to read it in full.

Note ,In some cases we have cited the review in full.

Paraphrased feedback

e mail from client 1/1/15: (Quoted in full):

"Hi Julia, Warm wishes for 2015. Before coming to you I had never experienced a colonics so had no expectations but I have been so impressed by the experience and definitely had noticed the difference in my well being, bowel movements and generally feel so much better. Thank you. See you soon. Regards," Barbara, first visit June 2014 - multiple visits ongoing client

e mail from client 12/12/14: (Quoted in full): "Hi Julia, Thank you for the email. I will keep these in mind. I think I might consider further treatment again next year sometime. I'm just a little busy at present with Xmas and house hunting. Hopefully things will settle down in 2015. I definitely felt the benefits from the session that I had. Charlie also feels the same way. Have a great Xmas and New Year". Hannah ; visited Sept 2014

e mail from client 1/9/14:(Quoted in full):"Thanks for your message. You are an excellent therapist but I just find those machines fill me with gas and I don't get a thorough colonic. I prefer open systems or gravity systems that are on the wall. Thanks though."- Claire ( visited 2013)

e mail from client 25/8/14: ( Quoted in full)" I have received your email and I'm sorry for not responding. I do not have a PC.I also have forgotten my sign in email for wahanda. I have a few email account and I tried to find my password but none if the emails I register with wahada are coming up registered. So I am writing my review here (below).

Directly quoted Review of WLC': "The place is quite small, comfortable though. I hadn't tried any thing like colonic irrigation before so I was very nervous as it was my first time. I had read a lot so my expectations were high. I don't feel anything happened during the session. I don't feel I benefitted much from it after either. So I felt I had wasted my money.Julia was nice and gave me an intro to how the colonic irrigation works. I do hope to do it once more in the future sometime just to see if it's any different to my first experience. I read a lot of post with positive feedback so I'm not sure where I had gone wrong'." - L.Iq , visited July 2014

E mail from client 30-6-14 /1-7-14:

Dear julia, I have just spent over an hour trying over and over at least 10 times to register (on Wahanda), log in without success. I just can't deal with these passwords, etc. I'm totally stressed out and have given up, so am sending you my review via email separately. I think the problem is more to do with me and computers not getting on - rather than the site
You have my permission to post my review anonymously -without my details. :Ang-Ang (not real name)

Directly quoted Review of WLC: "I discovered Andreas Moritz's ener-chi.com web-site where he describes a holistic approach to taking responsibility for one s health, and in particular - the AMAZING LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FLUSH -which has to be done in conjunction with colonics before and after each flush. After some research I found the WLC reviews from clients very helpful in making my choice of clinic and I liked the way Julia took the time to respond to every reviewer. I was nervous about having the colonics but Julia was reassuring and her warm, positive personality put me at ease. After the initial appointment she recommended a course of 10 sessions. She is very professional and takes pride and care in what she does and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone wanting to do colon hydrotherapy." Ang-Ang (not real name); Multiple visits April- July 2014 (continuing client)

Paraphrased: A newbie to Colonics, decided to trial West London Colonics based on previous client reviews. Booked a treatment at short notice. About Julia: she put me at my ease straightaway, explaining the whole procedure stage by stage. I felt totally comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. Benefit? After my session I definitely felt a difference and cleansed. Next step: will be booking a series of treatments to improve my well being for the future. Funkylady789, visited June 2014

Paraphrased : Regular visitor to WLC , since around June 2013. Reason for doing so? Bad IBS flare ups. Main problem is constipation and bloating with pain. About the treatments: Always delivered in a professional but caring way; a calm &understanding place to help my health issues About Julia: proactive advice with excellent ideas to improve my symptoms. “... I have been helped so much, …highly recommend West London Colonics to all fellow IBS sufferers, give it a try, you won' t be disappointed.” Ms A Stone, Review originally posted on WLCs FreeIndex page, June 2014 http://www.freeindex.co.uk/profile(west-london-colonics)_583694.html

Actual client quote:“ I had wanted to try hydrocolonic therapy for years so finally I did my research and found Julia at West London Colonic. When I first went for a treatment I was very nervous and unsure but I straight away felt relaxed as Julia is very friendly and trustworthy person and has great passion for her job.The treatment room was warm and cosy with relaxing music in the background. I felt I was in good hands all the time. I highly recommend WLC services. Thank you Julia” solla80; visited June 2014

Actual client quote:”My aim was and still is to get my body into balance, years of nutritional starvation, sleep deprivation, stress, emotional and physical abuse and everything else that goes with having fun in your youth started to take its toll on me in my early 30's, the importance of the Liver and Colon only came to my attention 2 years ago after reading several books. It all was leading to one thing, Colonics was the way forward, a very natural yet effective treatment which was quite common before the use of modern day antibiotics, I wanted to go back to basics, Julia listens to you, works with you on your goals, offers suggestions, advice and appointments at times to suit, the whole experience is pleasant, and I feel it's an integral part of achieving any health and fitness goal.:" back2basics; visited Dec2012 -last visit June2014 continuing client

Actual client quote: "I have been going to West London Colonics for about a year now following bad IBS flare ups. The treatments are always delivered in a professional but caring way. My main problem is constipation and bloating with pain. I have been helped so much, WLC gives me a calm and understanding place to help my health issues. Julia is proactive in offering me advice with excellent ideas to improve my symptoms.

Actual client quote: “As this was my first time, I felt very supported and in very good hands. Thank you Julia. I would definitely recommend this to a friend - in fact I already have! ;o)” Cheryl33; Visited April 2014 reviewed May2014

Paraphrased:I was a first timer to colonics, apprehensive, hesitant, somewhat influenced by negative comments about the procedure I had read BUT wanted to Judge the experience for myself. About Julia: I knew straight away I was in good hands, when she called me post-booking, with treatment particulars, very knowledgeable, and such a calming voice. About the Treatment: it is conducted in a purpose built area and felt like I was in a spa, very professional. It was relaxing, soothing and a great experience. So very different from my fears of embarrassment. I've already booked my next appointment and am looking forward to it so much! Book one now! - Mandykk; Visited April 2014

Paraphrased:First time colonics treatment, for me and my friend (we booked the couples deal ). About Julia: Exemplary communication before, during and after the appointment. She made treatment as relaxed and pleasant as she could. Making the appointment was very easy ,Julia was flexible with times and dates. My friend commends Julia's lovely nature and how she made you feel at ease during the treatment. After the treatment she said she felt really good, very light and better. About location: Nice, in a purpose built therapy room behind a residential bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac with some lovely local greenery. Plenty of off-street parking; felt quite safe. It is not a reflection on Julia/West London Colonic, however the actual colonic proved a stressful event for me, although my friend found the treatment really good and her experience was a lot more of a positive experience than mine. I have made some suggestions for WLC to consider based on my experience. Whilst I'm not going to have this treatment again, my friend liked the treatment and might do this again. -freddy1978; visited March 2014

Paraphrased:I visited the clinic recently, it is in a strange location, ( a separate facility at the back of a bungalow) but very nice and relaxing. I was very satisfied with the treatment and service, my only comment is I had all the additional extras, herbs, stomach massage etc so it worked out quite expensive, but well worth it. Anonymous, visited March 2014

Paraphrased: Seconding the majority of other reviews: Julia really does makes you feel at ease pre and during treatment - I was pleased with the colonic and would recommend to anyone to try a colonic at West London colonics. I had a really good experience at West London Colonics. Not having had this treatment before I was a little anxious however all of Julia's helpful information prior to the treatment was great and she made me feel very calm and relaxed during the treatment. I didn't feel too different after the session but Julia did say you sometimes need to build up the treatments. I would recommend a trip to West London Colonics

- samanthaaethorne, visited Feb 2014( posted review March 2014)

Paraphrased:My first colonics experience- really happy with all of it. Julia: welcoming & friendly; put me at ease. Clinic: warm, clean & very modern. Plenty of relevant info provided, on the phone and by e-mail, before treatment & after. It helped speaking with Julia on the phone before my treatment. Nice tiredness let me sleep well- noticed boost in energy thereafter. I found helpful: Information. Probiotics, Pre session massage, in–session herbs. Definitely recommend WLC. Lizzie1987, visited March 2014

A ‘wonderful experience’. (If driving, watch out for wrong instructions from the Satnav.) I ‘can’t wait for my next visit’. Found the earlier reviewers comments were ‘spot on and Julia is great’.Felt ‘very comfortable’, Julia gave ‘valuable aftercare advice’-' Lom004; 'Visited March 2014

paraphrased:My first colonic to support general detoxication to kick start healthier more mindful life. Other reviewers’ comments about Julia and her clinic are ‘true- relaxing atmosphere, professional treatment. I am a man and didn't feel uncomfortable at all.’ Amazing feeling post -colonic. Will definitely have more treatments. - ronin; Visited March 2014

Paraphrased:Centre is a specially built space in a residential garden. It is very clean and tidy, fully equipped.Julia is knowledgeable, professional very calming, easy to talk to. I got the stomach massage first, so relaxing, I was so much at ease I nearly fell asleep! Calming music in the background too. Colonic feels a bit strange at first but you get used to it and Julia was reassuring in her explanations. Session lasted 45mins / 1 hour. Felt amazingly full of energy straight afterwards. Yes, I did get tired about an hour afterwards and had a really good nights sleep. When I booked, Julia was very clear about the costs of the massage, colonic, herbs and probiotics so I knew upfront what the exact cost would be in advance (to take up any additional services). This information is also on the website. Easy and pleasant to deal with Julia at WLC; will definitively be repeating :) - eleda79; visited March 2014

Paraphrased:Both Colonics & Julia are brilliant. Julia is: Welcoming, professional and experienced, trustworthy, knowledgeable, appropriately conversational, cheerleader for my colon, generous spirited. This review is after having had 9 visits (though WLC is miles away from me). “Clinic is always warm, spotlessly clean and filled with relaxing music. ”Benefits? “Regular colonics definitely helped regulate my digestive system and I really do leave each time feeling lighter, freer and grateful….What’s not to like?! Book yourself in now, you’ll be in for a treat.” angel-a; 'Visited March 2014

Paraphrased: Report on my first ever-colonic hydrotherapy session:' I had it with West London Colonics …I am ‘now officially hooked!’ From booking an appointment right through to post treatment WLC ‘customer service and professionalism has been impressive’ … highly recommend them.

About Julias’ approach:' Julia did everything she could to ensure to target my session to best help me overcome the issues I face based on a real consideration of my past (medical history.

My experience and results:' While the session was mildly uncomfortable at times (given my severe constipation), results have been unbelievably positive… ‘Instantly felt lighter, more energetic and generally happier all over’. Experienced bounce- out -of bed energy levels next day… much reduced stomachaches after eating meals and reduction in constipation….

Further plans:' Intend to have further sessions to further enhance the benefits I experienced of my first session.

-Crystal90; visited Feb 2014

Paraphrased: My backstory:' At the beginning of Jan 2014 I started a ‘homegrown’ detox with herbs for recurrent eczema condition (‘skin is irritated as the body struggles to clear out toxins normally and comes through the skin)’. My "Detox" plan incorporates lifestyle & dietary changes. 'Colonic treatment:' Decided to incorporate colonics into my plan, initially intending to do just one colonic. However, based on results I have signed up to a course of 3 in addition to the first session. Julia is very professional and good with calming any anxieties. Can’t say its a comfortable experience, but ‘its all fine’ in the context of the treatment. Very informative. ‘I'm amazed at what your stools can reveal about the quality of your health … Do give it (colonics) a try... I guarantee you'll be in good hands with Julia’. Continuing positive changes:' I find myself generally more concerned with what I'm eating and water intake, (I now ‘drink around 2 litres of water daily (normally my liquid intake would be in the form of coffee and alcohol)’.

'About my skin:' ‘…the problem persists but I'm only 3 weeks in. Am confident I'm on the right track … - iPood, Visited Jan 2014

Paraphrased: “After comparing colon hydrotherapy reviews for WLC with that of other clinics, I booked with WLC. After 2 sessions with Julia, I say this: ‘If anyone is contemplating '(colonics) go for it, you wouldn’t be disappointed with Julia’'. She is ‘calm, friendly, reassuring gentle’, a trustworthy guide to have by ones side.'I topped up the basic introductory session with herbs, and a massage –it was worthwhile & ‘lovely‘.”

-cutiepie79, visited Dec 2013 & Jan 2014

Paraphrased: My first ever colonic was with WLC. Pleasantly surprised by it all. A very good experience: Julia was lovely and reassuring, giving clear explanations before, during, after treatment. The clinic is confidence-boostingly clean. 'So very pleased with the aftercare advice and whole process that I booked and paid for follow up session, there and then. I highly recommend West London Colonics to anyone.” AmyBumstead, first visit Oct 2013

Paraphrased:“My boyfriend and I visited WLC to kick start 2014. Julia was thorough & attentive, finding out about our health goals, tailoring the treatment for each of us. Clinic setting and ambience? Perfect, secluded, privacy guaranteed; spotless inside, scented with essential oils. Painless, comfortable treatment. Post-colonic: Definite improvements to our systems, even from just the one treatment. Personalised aftercare suggestions made, and followed up with emails. Will revisit for further treatments”. Anonymous, visited Jan 2014

I have these adjectives to describe her: incredibly friendly, discreet, professional, caring, efficient reassuring …I am a convert and advocate for the benefits of colon hydrotherapy from both remedial and preventative point of view… thoroughly recommend you try out coffee enemas in conjunction with colonics … do visit Julia at WLC” S3238D; visited multiple visits July2013 to January 2014

Julia is friendly & warm yet professional… she knows what she is doing ; the treatment is pleasant… I had some small niggles, however they might not be an issue for others.

OK ,THAT'S IT WITH THE SUMMARY REVIEWS

Enough information to make your booking? Great. I look forward to serving you. However, If you have read up to this point - and are wavering… Read on. You may feel strongly, intuitively that colonics are right for you, that they might work for you. But a part of you may be fearful as well– your imagination may be working at high speed (and most probably quite wrongly) about what the procedure entails. Don’t let your fears override your intuitions. A good principle in life– never mind this particular situation– is let nothing interfere with taking immediate action. Making a change that might fundamentally shift things for the better warrants no delay. Things won’t improve whilst you wait. Don’t make doing nothing an option. Really. It’s not a good one. Take some simple action at any rate.

  • Why not phone me to talk things through
  • Or e -mail me.
  • Or go to WLC website and look at the articles/ info pieces we have posted there. Get informed about the colonics point of view.
  • www.westlondoncolonics.com
  • http://www.westlondoncolonics.com/articles_info2.html
  • Dont postpone your action decision.If you say “ I will come back to this”, the sad reality is you may never do so. Take the action now so you can make an informed choice rather than a default decision based on fears not confronted. As the incomparable Susan Jeffers put it: (By all means)“ Feel the fear- and do it anyway” Most newbies to Colonics, after they have their first session with me, say “You know what, I wish I had done this a lot earlier!”

WHAT DOES PEAK PERFORMANCE EXPERT TONY ROBBINS SAY ABOUT FEAR?

(By the way he is a an advocate of colonics.) “If you look at what holds people back from expanding and deepening the quality of their lives, what prevents them from taking the actions that are necessary to transform their body, relationships, career, business : invariably, it’s fear – of failure, of success, of rejection, of pain and of the unknown.” -Tony Robbins

WE APPRECIATE OUR RATING BUT DON'T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED

As at Sept 2014, West London Colonics are amongst the top rated facilty listed on Wahanda for price & popularity for colon hydrotherapy services. No other listed colonics clinic has as many reviews relating solely to the colonics service. We have an averaged 4.6 out of 5 star rating based on 70 reviews, but more to the point we have an engaged clientele of reviewers, who care about giving high quality feedback to prospective users.

About professional association: ARCH and CNHC

The Association & Register of Colonic Hydrotherapists (ARCH) is the best established colonic association in Europe and has the largest number of members. I am a member in good standing. It’s generally acknowledged that it sets the bar in terms of standards and is the leading & authoritative voice for the profession in the UK.

Users of colon hydrotherapy services provided by ARCH members have the reassurance of knowing that their therapist must have been trained as either a medical doctor, nurse or has had 2 years in a substantial complementary therapy (in addition to their training as a colon hydro therapy in an approved school) before they qualify for membership.

ARCH has always been at the forefront of progress in the profession and has pushed for links with other related bodies.

For instance it became a member of the General Naturopathic Council (GNC) in 2004. All ARCH members are Naturopathic Colonic Hydrotherapists.

ARCH are also associated with the IBS network. http://www.theibsnetwork.org/

I am also voluntarily a personal member of CNHC. CNHC is a government funded body which exists to offer public accountability of the complementary therapists that it registers. You can find me on http://www.cnhcregister.org.uk/newsearch/index.cfm

A very pleasant experience, my first and not my last I have book three more treatments. at West London Colonics.

I would recommend the abdominal massage to everyone, it really relaxed me before the colonic irrigation.

Julia was lovely! It was my first time having Colon Hydrotherapy today and was a lot more relaxed and comfortable than I'd first imagined. Cozy bathroom too! =)

Every client review and rating has a story associated with it, and is wholly understandable in context.
This client review is short on detail, so I have checked out the context , primarily to establish what if anything I could learn from it.
The client arrived late for the appointment ( her first colonic too) and whilst she had a quite reasonable result from the treatment, obviously it impacted on her subjective experience.
She did not however express any dissatisfaction at the time.
I do try and reduce pre-session stress factors by giving clear travel instructions, pre session preparation , mobile phone contact details, journey planner instructions on the web site ( which is also mobile ph enabled).

I had a colonic yesterday with West London Colonic, it was my first experience, and to be honest I was a bit nervous, but after meeting Julia all of my worries went away. I had previously emailed her back the completed health questionnaire, which meant that our consultation was not as long therefor allowing more treatment time, which is a bonus. Julia explained everything, in detail and was very professional and friendly. At different points she explained what was happening to the colon and provided lots of interesting information. Julia's main objective was that I should be comfortable, which was reassuring, and meant that I had some control with this treatment. The premises are purpose built, and very clean and comfortable, the treatment room also had a bathroom which you need immediately after the treatment, which was reassuring!! After the treatment, Julia gives advice about what changes in your diet might be helpful in regards to digestion, and she provides water and a couple of probiotics to help you on your way. It was a different experience and one I will definitely have again. Look forward to seeing you again soon, Julia. Many Thanks.

Pleasantly surprised!!! I came for a Colonic Hydrotherapy session. Julia is very welcoming & friendly and her little 'room' at the bottom of her garden is rather charming. You don't have the feeling that you're in some formal clinic, with a receptionist and a waiting area!! She appears to know her stuff (which helps!) & explains the procedure from start to finish. Whilst some may find it unappealing to actually see the 'bad stuff' that comes out of your body, I found it therapeutic as I felt the toxins flush away!! I am a petite 42yr & my weight for years has been around 7st 3. Over the past year or so, i have felt bloated and seen my weight rise to around the 7st 5 mark. Not alot some of you may think but for my build it is and i can feel it!!
I am not 'regular' in my bathroom activites, even though i have a healthy, blanced diet. I walk alot, gave up meat nearly 3yrs ago (because its cruel) & am generally active. As this has always been a bit of a problem, i have had one or two colonics several years ago. I knew it was time for another... I scoured the internet for deals as the sessions can be costly. I came across West London Colonics and called her straight away as i had a free day. Fortunately for me she could fit me in the next moring & she offered an attractive intro offer... I read her reviews and felt it was worth a go - and it was!!! To my delight, since the session almost 3wks ago my weight is back to 7st 3.5, I have been taking Probiotic pills three times a day also & have been going more or less to the loo every morning. Such a relief!! I will be going back for another session just to sustain this. If your'e thinking of going, do it. I actually enjoyed it, especially now the results are so positive... Good luck!!!

I first visited West London Colonics in December 2012 when the practice was based in Alperton and have continued as a client after the relocation to new premises in Northolt because the service is outstanding! My most recent treatment was yesterday as I wanted to kick start a healthy living regime and undo some of the excesses of the Christmas period and a stressful few months at work.

Julia is a wonderful practioner, she always puts me at ease at all stages of the treatment and is happy to answer any questions about the treatment and ways that I can improve my health and support the goals of the treatment. I am always exceptionally happy with the results of the treatment, my skin looks fresher and brighter within a few hours and I have the most wonderful feeling of total well being afterwards.

The clinic opening hours are really convenient for someone that works full time and the location is fantastic - very private and discreet (with a lovely picturesque 10 minute walk from the nearest tube station!)

There are several package options available which are well worth exploring to save a bit of money, I have signed up for one of the Detox Packages (5 sessions) and have complete flexibility in how frequently I schedule the appointments. I also love the fact that even though I have booked a package, I am at liberty to customise each treatment with optional extras such as abdominal massage, herbs or additional time if needed etc (nb. there is an additional charge for these extras).

I will certainly be recommending West London Colonics to all my friends and family, I don't think the treatment can get better than this!

As a naturally skeptical person I was pleasantly surprised by a wonderful experience 6 months ago. I waited this long to review to ensure that the treatment I received lived up to longer term expectations and it did. I had been suffering from gastrointestinal/stomach/bacterial imblance for months and after a session and some pro-biotics it fixed the problem. I returned to Julia again because she put me at ease over location, payment, and during the procedure all for a reasonable price. I had my second visit last weekend for a fresh start following an overindulgent Christmas period and I'm looking forward to healthy living this year.

I already have 2 sections. I have had a long time constipation and it takes time to get over it, but by doing the colonics and do Julia's recommendation, my situation is getting better and I feel more ease and comfort. Julia is very kind and in full control of process , so you shouldn't be worry about anything ! The place is very tidy and give you confidence to let it go. The only problem is you should fill the forms and details information about yourself at beginning that although it is necessary but very time consuming!

As a man deciding to undertake his first colonic, I was understandably somewhat nervous however, Julia was welcoming and immediately put me at ease from my first contact with her. One of the best thing about WLC it is small and private no worry about being embarrassed sitting around in a waiting room, so if you are thinking about taking your first colonic then I would highly recommend WLC for this reason and also that Julia puts you a ease from the moment you walk through the door. She is very informative all the way through the treatment by explaining everything and answering my questions.

My first colonic was a better experience than I expected. Julia is very kind, calm and supportive. The abdominal massage was fantastic. The hydrotherapy was just a little bit uncomfortable when she put the tube in. I felt weird only a little and I give credit to Julia for making me comfortable by explaining everything and answering my questions. I liked that it was only me there, no waiting with others and after I could use the ensuite toilet. I didn't feel embarrassed at all.
Overall the experience was ok, although I was surprised that nothing much came out. I didn't know I have to do it at least 3 times to have the first results. It was only my ignorance, but this was my only disappointment. Also Julia is very flexible. I have a crazy lifestyle and she was open to be flexible with scheduling. And I also cancelled my first appointment on a very short notice and she was very understanding and flexible. I recommend this clinic to anyone who wants to do colonic.

As a guy choosing to undertake his first colonic, I was understandably somewhat apprehensive; however, Julia was welcoming and immediately put me at ease. The facility and ambiance were relaxing, and Julia took pains to explain each step of the procedure so that I was aware of what was happening at all times. I was very pleased with the result -- though a little tired in the end! -- and I have already booked my next appointment. I would recommend West London Colonics without hesitation.

I had my first treatment with Julia yesterday. Julia was really nice and made me feel at ease at all times throughout the treatment. She advised me what she was doing at each stage and was very pleasent to be around.
The treatment was not uncomfortable and I'm pleased to say I feel much better since having it, albeit a little tired which can be a side effect. Nonetheless I have booked another treatment in a few weeks and look forward to it!
I wod definately recommend this clinic to anyone thinking of having treatment .

I had my first colonic with Julia (the therapist at West London Colonics) not long ago and I have to say has been a very good cleansing experience. The clinic is situated about 10 minutes walk from the tube, it's is very private and consists is one treatment room and its adjacent private bathroom. I walked in and after an initial consultation I was asked to undress from the waist down and wear a full length hospital style gown. Once on the treatment couch Julia explained everything in depth and made the whole experience very comfortable and surprisingly relaxing. I left feeling lighter and once my tummy settled (one can experience some bloating right after the first session), the next day I felt better and my skin was more radiant too! I will definitely return to West London Colonics and recommend it to all my friends!

Being my first colonic, I really had little idea what to expect and I had chosen West London Colonics purely based on the reviews. They definitely lived up to their reputation. Julia calmly sits with you the whole time reassuring you throughout the process. I'm not sure I'm personally madly keen on the process but if you're going to do it, I couldn't think of a better place nor person for the experience.

I went to West London Colonics for my second such experience, the first being 5 years earlier in Thailand, and I'm pleased to say that it was a much more relaxing experience. Everything had been thought of and prepared for. Julia was extremely professional and attentive, ensuring my comfort, and explaining the process as the session went on.

My digestive issues are a Work -in-progress, I know that I must be patient, and keep doing the things I find helpful. There's always more to do. But it’s do-able , if I do it one thing at a time, as a process. Since February of this year, one action I have been committed to is Colon Hydrotherapy treatments. I started them initially to support my special GAPS diet.

I decided to do a series of treatments, as the first treatment did a lot of good. I felt better, with more energy immediately afterwards, and then late at night and the next day, felt very tired, not weak, but simply tired, like my body wanted to have extra rest. I actually overslept on Monday morning, and got late to work! lol

I then did a session 2 weeks after the first, thinking that this is when I needed the most support, so I could detox more quickly and move forward fast and symptom free through the GAPS diet. ( Its recommended to have a reasonably regular series of colonics while on the GAPS protocol).

I wanted also to deal with candida. (Julia pointed out the tell-tale signs , i.e. small gas bubbles released in colonic ). My gut bacteria was not in balance, the bad types were in higher numbers than the good ones, so Julia recommended a long term course of probiotics to be taken as long as there was any evidence of dysbiosis. (I have been on antibiotics several times - a clear reason for continuing with probiotics). I now have had 10 colonic treatments and as time passes I realise more and more that they are having a very positive effect on me. I plan to continue doing colonics on a monthly for some time, while I continue working on rebalancing my gut flora.

I would definitely recommend colonics to anyone on the GAPS protocol as these greatly aid the detox process. Julia is also great, she somehow makes an comfortable experience for what would otherwise be a very unpleasant one! I am glad I found her, and would certainly recommend her services. She is very knowledgeable, has an innovative approach, and is committed to my progress, a very good support.

I had my first ever colonic at WLC last week. I read online beforehand to know what to expect however still felt rather nervous about the whole procedure. I was a little bit late and was welcomed by Julia on my arrival. I was made feel comfortable and at ease. Julia explained the whole procedure after initial health check chat. As it was my first ever colonic and it can be bit embarrassing i felt tense through the procedure. It was pleasant experience in end and i felt better afterwards. I noticed the day after that my skin looks better and i feel more energetic. Great customer service!

Response from West london Colonics(1)

Thank you Justyna,
I am pleased that you did your own reading up about the treatment. Its always better to be an ‘informed client’, and to see the range of information that is available on-line.
For instance not every one knows that there are around 250000 treatments undertaken ever year by colon hydro therapists in the UK ( Source: Assoc of Registered colon hydro therapists-ARCH).
Of course it’s understandable to be nervous. The first time is new territory, so one is extending ones comfort zone.
Feeling a little embarrassed at the start also is an understandable response, and for most folk that quickly goes away as the treatment gets underway, and things start happening.
You noted that in the end it was quite “a pleasant experience in the end and you felt better”…That is the purpose of the treatments in that people do it to increase their sense of Wellbeing. My experience (from having worked with over 750 clients & undertaken over 2500 treatments) is that most clients experience that sense of Wellbeing, usually right from the first treatment, and those who undertake a series of treatments typically encounter deeper levels of Wellbeing & benefits over time.

About the skin: yes, colonic treatments do help!
Princess Di used to have regular colonics.
As did the 1950s icon Mae West (who incidentally lived to be an active, vital 87 years old). She never needed much persuading to show off her baby soft skin even in advanced age. Her secret? She said it was her focus on maintaining a clean colon. She believed internal beauty came before external beauty. Apparently she had a colonic treatment more or less weekly for many years. When sceptics objected that medical experts frowned on such a schedule, Mae smiled knowingly and quipped: "Well they would, wouldn’t they? If you never get sick, how are they gonna earn any money?” Of course the art & science of treatments, (including quality of modern day equipment & implants), has evolved and the frequency with which she had colonics would not be recommended long term these days. Still by all accounts, Mae wasn’t harmed by it, but rather appeared to thrive!

More Energy: I am glad you experienced this. It’s fairly typical in many peoples’ experience. Some encounter it immediately, others within a few days.
I appreciate your comment about “ great customer service”.
We work hard to deliver this to clients, and are gratified when we succeed against the criteria important to our clients.
I do look forward to serving you again.
Best wishes. Julia

Thank you Miss,
Good to see you at the weekend for your first colonic with WLC, albeit you've had others before. i am glad you had a useful session. I feel privileged to be able to support you in what you need to do for yourself at this point.
I hope to see you next weekend, to contextualise the completion of the physical cleanse & to symbolise new beginnings, of Body , Mind & Spirit.
Be kind to yourself.
Keep the physical changes you introduce ( lemon water, reduced carb items/ sweet items,increase in low GI fruits , increase in physical activity , increase in water intake) all set at levels that you can definitely succeed at.
You might want to note down in a journal what you will start doing & when, and make it really easy to succeed.
Condition your goals one by one.
Allow yourself to reflect safely on areas of your life where you are making changes, e.g. the detox, the colonic treatments and the like.
I do look forward to serving you again.
Best Julia

Julie welcomed my husband and I with a genuine smile and firm handshake (this says a lot about someone in my books). This wasn't my first time having this treatment done so I knew what to expect but my husband was apprehensive and Julie took the time to explain the procedure thoroughly and put his mind at ease which I was very grateful for.
I needed a herb enema to move my sluggish colon along - I was in control at all times because Julie's rule was that we should always be comfortable. Believe me you will be grateful for the location and privacy once you have to use the bathroom after! My husband and myself left feeling lighter and cleaner (inside) , we purchased some probiotics - not the sugar filled types bought in the supermarket. I would recommend having Colon Hydrotherapy done if you want to kick start a healthier you myself and my husband will visit again - Thanks for having us Julie see you again soon

Thank you Tania,
I really appreciate it that you have taken the time & consideration to post your review so speedily, and in such relevant detail.
It’s the detail that really helps other readers establish (firstly) if Colonic treatments are right for them and (secondly) if West London Colonics are the right clinic for them.
I am using these comments to offer some amplificatory thoughts.
I love it when couples’ support each other in their health objectives. Its’ a tangible evidence of the marriage vows “ in sickness & in health…” There’s much folk can do together with a coherent, sensible plan which is flexible & forgiving enough to generate initial success. That then builds momentum.
I like acronyms, being well known for bringing one out at the drop of a hat.
Here’s one I use for setting quality objectives.
SAFE, meaning
• S specific, simple, solution centred, SMART
• A attainable (by you, and for you)
• F forgiving (not based on ‘all or nothing’; rather based on broad consistency over time, do-able over time)
• E each of us is different, so allow room for individualisation of approaches.

Response from WestLondonColonics (2) contd from above

Kick starting health requires a strategic approach, that is based on sound behavioural science. Colon hydro therapy is a behaviourally smart health-based intervention, because it is multi faceted:
• It works locally on restoring the tone of the colon
• It works on the neurologically rich tissue in colon ( ie 2nd brain)
• It works on the immune system elements (eg Peyers patch)
• It works on the emotional system, changing mood ( e.g folk often feel calmer, clearer, more positive)
• It works on correcting dysbiosis by flushing out (disproportionately) high numbers of “bad” bacteria that might have taken up gut-space .
• It works to release stagnant energy in the abdominal space, and may have a knock on positive effect on other abdominal organs.
• It reduces stress and pressure in the body-mind system
• It can be a useful adjunct strategy for weight loss
• A series of treatments can provide a reference point for individualising outcomes to each clients specific objectives (ie “Every one is different”)

Response from WestLondonColonics (3) contd from above

Your comment about needing “ a herb enema to move your sluggish colon along” is a case in point both about individualisation & about delivering relevant value.
To make the first introductory treatment tremendous value for money (Dimples’ review below says it’s a ‘bargain price), we only charge for enema herbs when they are needed.
I have worked hard to create a modular pricing system that allows colonic treatments to be accessible to folk with different objectives & needs.
I sometimes call this the ‘pizza’ model (ie “basic”, plus “toppings”).

Response from WestLondonColonics (4) contd from above

As for your comment about being “in control at all times”, its an important observation, because colon hydrotherapy isn’t about a procedure that’s done to you; rather it’s an experience that’s co created with the client. Its not an entirely passive experience, but rather one that’s engaging, involving and stimulating. My objective always is to demonstrate that one can re-establish communication with an out-of-control colon (e.g. whether indicated by constipation, griping, IBS, bloating or whatever.) A colonic is a mode for neurological communication, and “control” is re-established by co-opting the gut brain into the equation! Reducing the possibilities for psychological discomfort reduces the chances of physical discomfort.
“Privacy & location” isn’t something new clients always consider when they think of their criteria for treatments. Even some high end clinics don’t have en-suite toilet & changing areas (we do).
As for location, as you know, our clinic is a specialist purpose built facility, entirely dedicated to colon hydro therapy treatments.
As for probiotics, it represents one of the most exciting areas of research.
Unsurprisingly the mass consumer companies have jumped on the bandwagon offering products that first of all aren’t well targeted (ie one-size-fits-all mentality), are commercially driven, introduce unuseful fillers (sugar and sweeteners, for Gods sake!) and generates false security.
People think they are improving their health with the supermarket probiotics, they’re generally not.
Taking probiotics is a therapeutic intervention.
It requires thoughtful experimentation along a treatment trajectory, its not ad-hoc.
Thanks again Tania.
I look forward to seeing M. and you again shortly.
Best
Julia
