Why choose an ARCH therapist?
ARCH is the UK’s oldest and largest association for colon hydrotherapists, with over 200 members across the UK, performing over 200,000 treatments per year. Choosing an ARCH member for your colon hydrotherapy treatment gives you the reassurance of the very highest standards of safety and service.
The leading industry association
ARCH has been setting the standards in our industry for over 25 years. We only accept members from approved schools, or who have extensive experience in a medical or other therapeutic profession. Furthermore, ARCH is the only colonic association recognised and regulated by the independent Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the only government-backed regulator in the industry.
ARCH is run by members, for members, creating a dynamic community of support, education, promotion and interaction that drives our industry forward. ARCH therapists are kept right up to date with the latest scientific and technical information, and continued professional development (CPD) is a prerequisite for membership renewal.
Maintaining the highest standards for Colon Hydrotherapy
All ARCH members sign up to our comprehensive code of practice which covers every aspect of your treatment, from the equipment used to the facilities available in the treatment room. Our members agree to maintain the highest standards of competency and care to ensure your safety, protect your dignity and provide a quality treatment experience.
ARCH conducts regular inspections to ensure that our members uphold the standards laid out in the code of practice, and there is a formal procedure in place to help any clinics that fail to make the grade.
