Ear Candling
This ancient, simple and relaxing treatment is excellent for treating sinusitis, rhinitis, glue-ear, tinnitus, colds, influenza, headaches, migraines. It also helps with the lymph system, metabolism and stimulates blood circulation. It can help to make hearing clearer and is particularly useful to reduce any pain when flying or diving.

The candles are made from linen and dipped in honey, beeswax and various herbs known for their therapeutic qualities. The burning action infuses the herbs into a vapour which is drawn into the auditory canal. This can have a massaging affect as well as softening any impurities.

The treatment is performed with the client lying on their side and the candle is gently inserted into the ear. Once the candle is lit, the client will experience a gentle crackling sound as the heat flow intensifies. The air through the candle will gently massage the ear drum. Most people find this a deeply relaxing treatment.

Although ear candling is a safe treatment, there are cases where ear candling should not be used. These are:

Infection or inflammation of the ear
Surgery on the ear within the last 3 months
Perforation of the ear drum
Lack of ear drum
Auricular cysts
Grommets, drains or ventilation tubes fitted
Allergies to the candle contents - honey, beeswax, sage, St John's Wort, camomile, beta-carotene or organically grown flax.

I only use candles that contain filters to prevent the debris from the candle dropping into the ear.

A treatment will last approx 30 minutes and will include a facial massage and consultation.

Crystal Healing
This is the laying of crystals in conjunction with the body's energy fields - the aura, chakras and meridians, to bring balance to the body. It is a non-intrusive treatment.

Crystals are natural and come from deep within the earth and each crystal has its own healing properties from the minerals it is derived from. Crystals can amplify, diffuse, absorb, focus and transmit energy and can be very effective when combined with Reiki. Crystals used during a session are selected for their particular healing properties that will be most beneficial to the clients' needs.

During a treatment, crystals are placed on or around the body to surround the body with healing energy and to resonate with the body's energies, to bring balance and relaxation to the body's physical and subtle bodies. Crystals can also promote relaxation, help release stress, relieve insomnia, release negative patterns and remove blockages. A single crystal may be used or a certain layout of crystals can be used depending on what the therapist feels the client will need. Therapists will generally choose the crystals intuitively or by pendulum dowsing in order to find the right crystals to use during the treatment. The treatment will usually last 1 hour which will include a consultation.
