The wellbeing challenges created by the global pandemic of 2020 are far ranging. There is only so much that doctors, therapists and other healthcare professionals can do to support the millions who are struggling through the anxiety created by lives thrown into chaos. If we, as a global community are to prevent ourselves from becoming unwell, what we must do is understand how to stay well. The gut is the source of wellness.

If we really care about our wellbeing, it is time to take ownership of that which is rightfully ours; of knowledge, emerging science, gut instinct and ancient wisdom. Because only in doing that might we reclaim our vitality, and learn to unlock the whole story, the incredible fascinating history described by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians when they documented treatments like colonic hydrotherapy, liver cleansing and eating a clean diet for a peaceful calm body inside and out. The story of gut health, colonic hydrotherapy, and nutritional therapy is not new. The practice of using water to naturally restore the body is not new. What is new is that we know now that when our gut is imbalanced, all systems are out of sync. Our bodies are made up of eighty percent water. Water has the power to revitalise us without disturbing the   delicate balance that exists inside us because we are water.


The Water Well Man of Co. Meath

Up until 1950s in Ireland, if you wanted to find water for a new well, you called the official county water diviner. Maybe it was to do with the forces and power of the ancient land of Tara Hill where he worked, or maybe it was the magnetic pull of his physical body but for over fifty years, that water diviner never could wear a watch without it stopping. During that time, he located wells for the hundreds of new farmers who came to Meath from the west of Ireland. He travelled far and wide on his bicycle meeting these new people and he heard of remedies passed down by word of mouth for centuries often in Gaelic. This man is the grandfather of Frances Flannery, founder of Vitality Centre clinics.

It is upon this family legacy and respect for water and its healing properties that Vitality Centre Dublin was forged and built over a decade ago in Ireland. With a flagship location now on Grafton Street, Vitality Centre Dublin is Irelands best loved gut health and body cleansing therapy clinic and the only globally recognised I-ACT training standard for colonic hydrotherapy in the land.

Thank you to all our clients, family and friends. Frances Flannery

Our Gut Health Treatments

At Vitality Centre, we provide self-improvement therapies for the body and mind. As well as advanced treatments such as gut health colonic hydrotherapy, direct probiotic implantation, liver coffee enemas, holistic therapies friendly probiotic skincare, and Smile White teeth whitening, our Grafton Street facility offers on-site training, one day educational classes, and wellbeing events in a Joycean building overlooking Grafton Street, and Trinity College. Our treatments, and training facilitate not only body, but also cognitive furtherance and refinement.


‘What are the qualifications of these therapists?’ ’Are they using the right equipment?’ ‘Is it disposable and clean?’ If you have found yourself wondering these things, Dublin Vitality Centre has some good news for you. In the USA gut cleansing colonic hydrotherapy is regulated by law. The qualification required to practise there is I-ACT level 1. To become a trainer of gut health colonic hydrotherapy, four levels of recognised I-ACT certification are required. An exam is taken, and the participant is placed in front of a board in the USA who include gastro-intestinal medical doctors among others, and rigorously questioned. I-ACT training is a post graduate programme. Before a therapist enters it, there must be a foundational health qualification. These standards ensure best practices, and are the very ones that are held by us. What this means is that not only are we qualified to provide gut health colonic hydrotherapy and other treatments, but we are qualified to teach these treatments to the standards accepted by law in the USA where the treatment is regulated. 

In fact, Vitality Centre is the I-ACT training school covering Ireland and the UK.  

Direct Gut Flora Probiotic Implantation

Today, there is much talk of stool testing, but since there is no such thing as a customised probiotic, such a test will only tell you what we already know, that everyone has imbalanced gut flora due to anti-biotics. If you have taken a gut health stool test, or if you just wish to restore imbalanced gut flora based on the scientific findings that we all have imbalanced gut flora, a probiotic implant is according to world leading gut health doctors, the most effective and best way to win the battle of imbalanced gut flora.



"When I fly or go on holidays, my bowel stops moving. All my hard dieting work and gym exercise seems futile. I am left feeling heavy and depressed and my clothes are uncomfortable. Weight loss has become more and more difficult for me."


"I didn't like the bathroom when I was in primary school and so I avoided using them, preferring to wait until I got home. I have carried this habit into adult life repeating this behaviour in college and then in my work life. I can put off going to the loo, until I really really have to. I suffer from constipation often. My bowel is sluggish and won't move by itself."


"I often experience cramping and bloating but I have not found a solid plan of action for this. I have been told I have IBS but I am unsure how to manage it. I find it hard to get up in the morning and I am sometimes late for work because of this.


"I'm prone to hormonal breakouts on my chin, acne on my back and psoriasis even though I am an adult. I have tried every skin product, and every cream, but even the most expensive ones on the market dont seem to make a difference or clear the issue. Steroids suppress the issue but it comes back."


Over the past ten years, Vitality Centre Dublin has helped thousands and thousands of people like you. All have similar stories. Many of whom have experienced dramatic improvements to their life and wellbeing with a Vitality Gut Health Plan.

As the world returns to health, now is the perfect time to cleanse, replant and restore the gut and bowel using advanced I-ACT certified FDA approved colonic hydrotherapy and nutritional therapies. Because colonic hydrotherapy at Dublin Vitality Centre is carried out using only the most advanced Harley Street Method - a hands-off protocol - the treatment can be done whilst respecting social distancing at all times.


Vitality Centre Dublin clinics are designed to accommodate one person at a time. You should follow the Covid19 guidelines when visiting us by coming individually and leaving loved ones and children at home. Please ensure to book in advance via our website or telephone and bring your own PPE mask. Anti-bacterial hand solutions and gloves are provided in the clinics.

We provide everything needed for treatment. Please do not bring in towels or other items except any PPE that you wish to wear. You can rest assured that you will experience no loss of privacy or breach of social distancing at Vitality Centre Dublin due to the fact that the Harley Street Method of colonic hydrotherapy enables self-insertion of the speculum. Tubes are considerable smaller than those found in traditional methods of colonic hydrotherapy that you may have seen online whereby the therapist holds the tube in place.

As per I-ACT standards speculum tubes are strictly disposable. As per I-ACT standards, the cleansing and disinfection protocols which we adhere to have not changed. Because we are the only I-ACT globally recognised training school for colonic hydrotherapy in Ireland, we have always maintained the highest possible internationally cleansing standards known as ‘Universal Standards’ which are designed for universal considerations around disease control and prevention and follow guidelines to ensure optimal hygiene including the use of CDC a clinical hospital grade cleansing solution recommended universally for optimal disease, infection and virus control and prevention.

Why Have Colonic Hydrotherapy?

Colonic hydrotherapy may be the first step to better gut health because it may clear colonies of imbalanced, unfriendly gut flora like candida, SIBO and materials such as Alpha Synuclein, a toxin that resides in the appendix and which has been scientifically proven to be found in the bowel of those with Parkinsons Disease. Hippocrates, the father of all medicine said “All disease starts in the bowel” two thousand years ago. Now it seems like scientific evidence is connecting the dots, at last.

Gut Health Colonics and Friendly Microbiome Probiotic Implants

Ordinary everyday healthy people carry kilos of impacted faecal matter in their bowel which they are quite unaware of until they notice unpleasant side effects like poor digestion, bloating and unexplained smelly breath. Masses of impacted faecal matter is a breathing ground for bad gut flora, inflammation and toxicity. That is why it makes sense to clear the overgrowth of “gut weeds” before planting new seeds in the form of probiotics. Because probiotics are just seed of new gut flora for your bowel. They will not help to remove the overgrowths of unhealthy gut flora that are already there. Consider your gut to be a microscopic garden and then you get the picture. Any sensible gardener would always start by clearing away debris before planting new seeds. And that is why colonic hydrotherapy works in tandem with probiotics. It is not a case of one or the other. Very often, it is a case of both. First clear with colonics. Then replant with probiotics just as you would do in a real life garden situation.

The History of Gut Health

There are records that describe ancient forms of body cleansing. In the book of Essene, a book found in Israel in the 1940s, believed by some to be part of the original bible, there is a line that says. ‘Eat of your mother, if you wish to know your father,’ This means, eat food that comes from mother earth if you wish to increase your spiritual awareness and inner peace – the earth representing the mother; spirituality the father.

Incidentally, the same book outlines an ancient form of gut cleansing irrigation which again was undertaken by the Essenes for spiritual purity and enlightenment. Essene means peace and it is quite true that when we eat a diet rich in fresh plant based whole foods that are free of hormones, additives, preservatives and animal protein, we induce a feeling of peace and bring nutrients that the body recognises as food into every living cell of the body. Take a look at this fascinating short movie to learn more about ancient gut health practices.

Gut Health to Boost Mood

You may have heard from someone you know who had colonic irrigation that they felt surprisingly great afterwards. Its certainly a treatment that celebrities swear by and we at Vitality Centre have helped a few Hollywood A-Listers to feel better. Because we are globally recognised school, they get referrals from their local practitioners in LA or New York. But you don’t have to be an A-List celebrity to benefit or to feel better by caring for your bowel. One theory for why there is an almost universal feeling of increased wellbeing is that colonic irrigation removes impaction and increases peristaltic action of the gut. This likely kick-starts the production of serotonin there (remember up to 95% of the feel good hormone is produced in the bowel). Most people would agree that cleansing away years of impaction from the bowel with colonic irrigation seems like a good idea, a little like clearing lime scale off the pipes of your home plumbing system is a good idea or changing the oil in your car. It’s a no brainer and it just makes sense. And that brings us nicely to the next question. So if its so great, why is everybody in the world not doing it as part of their wellness strategy. The answer to that is very simple. People just don’t like the idea of it because they are unaware of the ‘hands off” non-contact version called the Harley Street Method that we offer at Vitality Centre Dublin. Lets face it. Nobody wants to have someone put a large tube into their rectum. That is why we have introduced a newer method that allows self-insertion of an incredibly small tube that only goes into the body about an inch.


If you always wanted to try colonic irrigation or colonic hydrotherapy (its other name) but were put off by the loss of privacy, Vitality Centre Dublin has good news for you. The Harley Street Method is an advanced FDA approved Med II method whereby it is possible to undergo colonic irrigation in absolute privacy. Tubes are considerably smaller than traditional methods (approximately the size of the tip of a pen and only inserted about 1 inch into the body). It is designed for self insertion of the tube and the system is equipped with a mini personal shower, automatic odour vacuum and many other features which make colonic hydrotherapy accessible to those who are challenged by the idea of a loss of privacy. Forget everything you ever thought you knew about colonic irrigation and try The Harley Street Method today. You wont look back. Vitality Centre Dublin is an I-ACT internationally certified school of training for colonic hydrotherapy. I-ACT is the only qualification accepted in the USA where the the profession of colonic hydrotherapy is regulated by law.


When considering gut health colonic hydrotherapy, it is important to consider a course of at least 3 treatments. That is because the first will often loosen built up impacted matter. The second will often start the removal of it and the third will complete the job. That’s the situation for someone who is chronically impacted and sadly most people with digestion, bloating, skin congestion and gut health issues usually are. After a course of treatments its usual to feel:

  • Happier
  • Less Bloating
  • Less Cravings
  • Improved Symptoms of IBS
  • Less Constipation
  • Less Diarrhoea
  • Calmer
  • Clearer Skin
  • Eyes Sparkle
  • Clearer Mind
  • Reduced Anxiety
  • Lighter
  • Motivated to eat healthier
  • Flatter Tummy
  • More Regular Bowel Movement
  • Reduced Cramping & Digestive Issues
  • Less Irritation of Skin
  • Fresh Breath
  • Overall Increased Vitality and Wellbeing

The number one reason that we see for people choosing to have gut health restoring colonics is to kickstart a healthy living routine and especially when weight-loss has come to a grinding halt for no apparent reason. The good news is that clients averagely report weight dropping by 3 LBs after they undergo the treatment. At Vitality Centre, we are all about making your experience pleasant because we understand so well the benefits and so well that you are nervous. And we are here to make it easy and pleasant for you. That is really what we are all about at Vitality Centre Dublin.


Vitality Centres Gut Health Plans are different from any other diet, skincare or lifestyle programmes because they include advanced deep body detoxification gut health colonic hydrotherapy, liver coffee enemas, and direct probiotic implantation of friendly microbiome so they work at the root - the gut - to cleanse, restore, and replant. In other words, Vitality Gut Health Plans work on the inside, as well as on the outside. And that is why they are so powerful and often effective when all else has failed.

Kickstart weightloss and bowel function with a total cleanse which includes 3 weekly sessions of colonic hydrotherapy and one coffee enema as well as a mind body holistic therapy session .

Plan B



Many skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and eczema orginate in the gut. That is why no topical product can sometimes help. The 90 minute treatment offers the opportunity to rebalance your skin from the inside out. When all else has failed, when no skin care product is working to clear the dermis, it is time to look to the gut for the answers. By clearing the underlying problem and using a gut friendly skin care routine, there is a an opportunity for the skin to heal from deep inside.

Plan C



When its time for a total body vitality boost, if you have already undergone a food intolerance test, or if you feel that you are lacking vitamins and want to offer your body a total cleanse, plus the right nutrients to boost energy, and vitality, then this is the plan for you.
