It’s a bath for your insides! In a private room, you’ll lie on a reclining toilet while filtered, body temperature water is introduced via a (tiny!) nozzle up your rear flushing out your colon. Alleged benefits include improved digestion and, uh, better memory. Here’s where to do it.
They’re all business here. Aside from a quick briefing, you’ll be left in total privacy, and sent packing with a simple nod and a probiotic. No fuss. They almost always have deals on Groupon too. 4/424 Church St, Richmond. $85 per session or three for $230.
BHH Doubles as a naturopathy clinic, so you’ll start with magnesium to relax, potent probiotics to finish, and they’ll usually have a chat to find out what’s making your insides tick. 22 Tripovich St, Brunswick. $80 per session or $220 for 3.
They use the whimsically named "Angel of Water Surround ®" open system here. You’ll start with a consultation, but after that it’s private – just you and the angels. 26 Clyde Rd, Berwick. $85 per session, or $235 for three.
Vanessa Ireland uses a closed system. That means she’s in the room operating the machine and massaging your abdomen, but everything goes in and out through a tube so its silent, smell-free and you’re covered by a sheet. Phew! 2/19 Hollsmoor Rd, Camberwell. $115 per session.
They’re all about holistic cleansing here, and also offer a hydrotherapy package that includes three FIR saunas whereby infrared waves penetrate your molecules, vibrating them to release toxins. Scienctific!
589 Hampton Street, Hampton. $95 per session or $249 intro package.
