Colonic Irrigation is the practice that involves cleansing the entire colon using filtered and temperature-regulated warm water which enters and exits the colon through tubes connected to rectal catheter.
If equipment is not sterile and infection control procedures are not followed, then the potential for transmission of bowel infections and blood-borne viruses is high.
Under the Public Health and Wellebing Act, Colonic irrigation establishments are required to be registered with their local Council. Please refer to the Registered Premises webpage for more information.
