PROTOCOL FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THE ASSOCIATION & REGISTER OF COLON HYDROTHERAPISTS.

There are three categories of paying membership: Probationary, Full and Associate.

Preamble: At present Colon Hydrotherapy is taught in courses of short duration as an adjunctive therapy with only the relevant anatomical, physiological and practical tuition necessary to carry out the therapy itself. The courses presented do not include wider anatomy and physiology tuition, the focus is on the digestive system and circulatory system of the body. The style and techniques vary from different courses that are available and one should seek to what is appropriate for them either using a closed system colonic machine or an open system colonic procedure. The focus is to become a good therapist and not just a technician. Furthermore, on the premise that practice makes perfect, experience in the therapy is all-important. There are therefore three mandatory requirements for membership of all categories.

1) A recognized training course in Colon Hydrotherapy should have been successfully completed and a pass certificate held. The course should be registered within Australia to be able to gain recognition with the Insurance companies and comply with health department standards.

2) A course of at least two years duration (full or part-time) in a body-based therapy including in-depth anatomy and physiology should have been successfully completed and a pass certificate held along side with their colon hydrotherapy certificate.

3) The premises should reach prescribed standards upon inspection by the Health Department and nearest Councils. Or out of Sydney if members are not sure if they meet the requirements a representative of the A.C.H.A can become available for any assistance in meeting with the requirements.

• Completion of a recognized course does NOT confer automatic membership of the A.C.H.A. Membership Committee assesses all applications for membership.
