Our Mission

It is our mission to make the the highest internationally recognised I-ACT accredited standard of colonic hydrotherapy training available in Europe so that the health benefits of natural gut health treatments like colonic hydrotherapy can be experienced by more people and so that doctors and professional medical personnel can feel confident about referring their patients to clinics that have the I-ACT accredited training because it demonstrates the same standard that is required to work in regions such as the USA where the profession of colonic hydrotherapy is standardised by I-ACT.

"Adding holistic gut health and treatments like colonic hydrotherapy into your wellbeing clinic is the best investment you will ever make for both you and your clients." Frances Flannery, Your Gut Friend, Founder of The International Institute of Colonic Hydrotherapy and The Irish Institute of Yoga.

"I wanted to introduce the type of standards that I myself would have wanted when I developed gut health problems and decided to seek a natural alternative. That is why I have worked for almost a decade to bring the I-ACT training standard to Europe. I believe that all natural wellbeing should begin with clearing, replanting and healing the gut." Frances Flannery, Your Gut Friend, Founder of The International Institute of Colonic Hydrotherapy and The Irish Institute of Yoga.

What Colonic Hydrotherapy Device Will I Train On?

We train using the advanced Harley Street Method or "open method". This system offers advanced privacy during the administration of colonic hydrotherapy and is ideal for those who find that privacy is a primary concern as tubes are substantially smaller than traditional closed methods. When you train with The International Institute of Colonic Hydrotherapy for I-ACT Foundation Level 1, you can offer whatever method of colonic hydrotherapy you wish using whatever device you choose regardless of whether it is an open or closed method. You will need to undergo device training from the manufacturer of your preferred system. If you chose to use The Harley Street Method, no further device training will be required as this is included in your 100 hour training course.
