At The International Institute of Colon Hydrotherapy, it is possible to become a registered I-act qualified colon hydro therapist. I-act is the only training programme which is accepted by US Federal Law and which enables a colon hydro therapist to practice legally in the United States. In the USA, colonic hydrotherapy is a highly regulated profession. That means that anyone who wishes to practice as a colon hydro therapist must hold certain qualifications. That qualification is the I-act training.

Instructors are certified by I-act and ARCH and are qualified to teach both open and closed methods. However, training is currently offered on the LIBBE FDA certified open method system. This is also know as “The Harley Street Method”.

I-ACT is the largest organisation in the world for colon hydrotherapy with over 3000 members throughout the world. I-ACT is the governing body for the regulation of colon hydrotherapist in the USA. This means that anyone who now wishes to practice as colon hydrotherapist in the USA is obliged by law to be trained by I-ACT. I-ACT colon hydrotherapists practices are found all over the world including Ireland, Denmark, Singapore, China, Australia, UK and throughout the USA. I-ACT is recognised as the world leader in the provision of professional training and standards in the field of colon hydrotherapy.

I-ACT recommends the use of currently registered FDA equipment and disposable rectal nozzles/speculae. Additionally, I-ACT recommends that each therapist not using equipment currently registered with the FDA, consider upgrading their equipment to FDA registered equipment in the very near future.

Colonic Hydrotherapy may become regulated by law in Europe, in time. This is a very positive thing for I-act trained colon hydro therapists because it means that those who do not meet the standards of training and who have not undertaken a recognized training program or hold the I-act will no longer be able to practice legally.

It is very likely that the EU will seek the same standards of training as those currently required by US law. What this means is that anyone holding I-act qualifications may automatically meet the standards of regulation should they be deployed in Europe.
