    Can I ask if anyone has any experience of colonics? :eek: I am wondering about having one at the end of LL to clear out any remaining 'rubbish' from my system. Or would it be better to have one early on rather than waiting?

    Sorry to ask such a personal question, but I have this opportunity to book one but it is a total unknown to me and I would love some advice.

    :confused:

    If you do a search I'm sure someone on here has had one. I've been meaning to book one for aaages, and have just emailed the hydrotherapist who 'does' them, on the strength of your post, so thank you for inadvertently being the kick up the backside I needed. if i have it next week will let you know :)

    I had one a couple of years ago. Although quite fascinating in a gruesome kind of way I found it very uncomfortable and ended up not being able to complete it.

    Didn't really make me feel any different after. Knowing me though I'd probably give it another go!

    I've had a couple and finished one (fely healthy, euphoric and generally great after - slightly high & slept like a baby). The second one was a "we can fit you in due to a calncellation" so was quite rushed and I was tired. Unlike the first this one was uncomfortable and I only managed 1/2 hr. If you've ever had IBS it can feel like a long attack of IBS and can be uncomfortable. The actual "insertion" isnt embarassing and I have a lovely Indian doctor who does mine in Cardiff and is the sole of discretion - drapes a towel of you and peeks so you feel less embarassed IYKWIM! I would def recc them as you do feel cleaned when you have one - just donet do it if youre tired hormonal or not prepared emotionally because it is a tiring process.
    Hope that helps - feel free to pm me if you have more intimate ? you would prefer to be asked off board! Let us know how you get on!

    I've just found a clinic around the corner from my LL group in Chester, that means I have to book one now!!

    Had one last year and had a nice "empty" feeling afterwards!! Not at all uncomfortable.............

    Day 17 on LL - at least one stone lighter and I feel brill!!

    There is a clinic about 5 mins from where I work, but not the kind of thing you pop out to do over lunchtime really ;)

    If I can find out prices I will share these, as I have heard that there can be a great variance in prices. The treatment I am planning to have in June costs £65, but that includes cellulite treatment too.

    Thanks for all the replies!!
