Review ~ Temple Cleansing Studio
Review by Kate Toholka
Temple Cleansing Studio is located in the regional town of Leopold, VIC and offers colon cleansing, remedial massage, chi machine, foot detox and ear candling. Angelika Fritz is the delightful owner, who has a passion for holistic health and detoxing.
Last week I went along to try the colon cleansing. Now, I’ve never done one of these before and I must admit that I was quite nervous! Angelika did a wonderful job of calming my nerves.
The resident receptionist!
The aim of colon cleansing is to remove waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. It is ideal for those who suffer from such aliments as digestive disorders, acne, bloating, constipation and IBS.
The process involves a machine that uses an open-fed gravity system, meaning that the therapist does not need to attend for the full 45 minute session. A rectal tube is provided and Angelika provides you with thorough instructions on how to set yourself up. Then you are given the privacy to prepare yourself before Angelika returns to start the machine. The machine uses warm filtered water, and there are coffee and herbal irrigation options as well. There’s a handy little video on the website that takes you through the process, you can watch it here.
For a first timer, the experience was initially quite confronting. There was some slight discomfort in the first 10 minutes but as I got used to the experience, I became relaxed. So relaxed that I even felt like sleeping!
Excuse the poor iphone quality! A sneaky snap during the cleanse.
I left feeling not only relaxed, but much lighter and clear in body and mind. I have a history of stomach troubles, including perpetual bloating, and the colon cleansing definitely helped reduce the bloating and improve my overall sense of wellness.
Temple Cleansing offer a range of services, which you can read here.
