Even though there may not be any pain in the feet there can still be subluxations that will disrupt the neurological information going to the brain and hence the smooth coordination of the rest of the body.

  • Foot jointAching feet

Reflexology is based on the principle that certain parts of the body reflect the whole. Reflex points, which relate to all parts of the body, can be found in the feet, hands, face and ears. Involving the application of pressure with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques, these points respond to pressure, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process. The body starts progressively clearing blockages, re-establishing energy flows and balancing itself, resulting in better health.

Ear candling is a non-invasive, relaxing treatment that takes about 30 minutes. The ear candle is lit on one end and the other end lightly sits in the ear, heat is not felt in the ear canal.

The negative charge of the herbal smoke and shape of the candle work together to stimulate the respiratory system and cleanse and release build up. The gentle vacuum effect of fire causes debris to be drawn up the candle toward the flame.

Negative feedback for Ear Candling is mostly due to the use of cheaply and poor made candles. The use of a high quality candle, another set of hands to perform the treatment and proper use of the candles is primary to get the best results. The candles can be misused and cause issues. So it is important to follow instructions when using.

Clients have found relief from vertigo, dizziness, allergies, headaches, and many other ailments.

ear_candleWhen used properly, the benefits of ear candling may include:

  • Built up wax & debris released from the ear canal
  • Relief of pressure from behind the eardrum
  • Improvement of  mental functions, vision, hearing, taste & colour perception
  • Relief of earache, headache & sinus pressure, and allergies

Keep in mind…

  • Chronic conditions may take multiple sessions, ideally spaced 7-10 days apart.
  • Ear candling is not a cure-all. While effective in many cases, it is best to be seen first by your doctor if you are experiencing specific medical problems.
  • Ear candling is not recommended for 1) People who have a hole in their eardrum. 2) If you’ve had tubes in your eardrums (Can be checked to see if they have healed shut before candling). 3) If you have difficulty breathing where small amounts of smoke is a threat. (ex. emphysema, etc.)
  • Excessive use is not wise or recommended.
