Schools with Colonic Therapy Programs: How to Choose

Colonic therapy training programs offer students basic and advanced courses in the practice of cleansing and detoxifying the large intestine, a process often referred to as colonic hydrotherapy. To find out where these programs are typically offered and the topics they cover, read on.

Colonic hydrotherapy training schools are often found in private clinics that offer colonic therapy services. Degree programs at traditional 4-year institutions in this area are rare; courses in the subject can sometimes be found in physical aide/therapy programs.

School Selection Criteria

Some things to consider when choosing a program or course dealing with colonic therapy:

  • Students may want to consider programs that have been recognized by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT), because these programs are taught by I-ACT certified instructors who have completed advanced training and students who complete training through an I-ACT-recognized school are eligible for I-ACT certifications.
  • Students should look for courses that cover the practical uses of the devices used in colonic cleansing, specifically the Lower Intestine Bottom Bowel Evacuation System, known as LIBBE, and they should also seek training on standard business practices, customer service, professional ethics and legalities involved in colonic therapy.
  • Course levels are important, too, and students who pass the I-ACT certification exam can continue their studies with more advanced courses, including instructor certification.

100-Hour Training Course

The 100-hour training course in colonic hydrotherapy offered by I-ACT-certified instructors prepares students to take the I-ACT Level 1 certification examination. This course offers hands-on training with colonic therapy equipment in a clinical setting. Some programs emphasize specific techniques designed to make the experience more comfortable for clients.

40-Hour Training Course

While most programs encourage students to complete the 100-hour course, some still offer an abbreviated 40-hour equipment-training course. Students purchasing colonic hydrotherapy equipment can enroll in this course at a fraction of the cost of the lengthier course. This program alone will not qualify an individual for I-ACT Level 1 certification.

Colonic therapy programs are rare and often available through private, for-profit schools. Students should verify that a colonic therapy program is recognized by the I-ACT and that the coursework is relevant to their career goals and certification needs before enrolling.
