This is the fourth section of our Six Human Needs blog, in which we discuss what motivates people to come and seek support from colon hydrotherapy and colon hydrotherapists.
We have covered security, spontaneity and significance. The next very important need that we 'll talk about is the need for love and connection. Usually this means the importance of being part of a family, having friends, enjoying club or gym membership, i.e of having relationships with like-minded people or sharing your life with someone you love. Intimacy and touch also fall into this category.
So how does it translate into the reasons why people book colon hydrotherapy treatments?
Do you sometimes see clients, who are mature or elderly, often widowed or single, coming for treatments 2-3 times a year, may be a little bit more often? They don't talk too much, don't give you much feedback, you are not sure whether they have enjoyed the colon therapy treatment or what part of it they have benefited from, but they keep coming back, they are reliable and they never cancel....Then one day, a couple of years down the line, they stop coming and you don't notice until some time has passed. Life goes on and you get new clients, and usually you get someone else who is very similar.
These are the people who come for the human touch. They enjoy the abdominal massage, the smooth silky hydration of the colonic, the quiet conversation, the background music, the silence, and the ability to feel that someone, for that short hour, is there just for them. They come to you for the treatment, but what they are really looking for is human connection, both physical and emotional.
I can always feel their loneliness and quiet desperation and I am not quite sure what to say or not to say, so usuallly I keep conversation to a minimum, do a lot of gentle massage, treat gently and respectfully and, if appropriate, throw in a big warm hug or two. I am sure you do the same.
