CONTRAINDICATIONS

Your health is very important to us - and you. That's why we are committed to delivering the highest standard of service and take precaution and care to screen each client. 


If any of the contraindications below apply to you, we would not be able to provide you with colonic detox hydrotherapy at the present time, unless you provide us with written prescription or permission from your MD or ND showing supervision over our services for the contraindication. 


If you have any of the contraindications below you may still be eligible to receive colon hydrotherapy once they have subsided or have been eliminated. Alternatively, massage, acupuncture, and dietary modifications can be extremely helpful with improving bowel regularity, reducing abdominal pain and addressing inflammation issues. 

We have massage therapy (RMT) at our location - please see Green Health Clinic for booking.
