Hopi Ear Candles
£28 (30 mins)
Ear candling – or thermo-auricular therapy is an ancient, non-invasive complementary therapy designed to help treat conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat.
The treatment involves a specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the secretion flow is gently stimulated while the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits, often referred to as the ‘chimney’ effect. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and also helps to regulate ear pressure. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas. The removal of excess wax and impurities also helps to clear the inner ear and sinuses, regulating ear pressure and bringing a light, clear sensation in the head and ears.
It is ideal for all ages, from children through to the elderly giving a safe and pleasant alternative to medical treatments such as syringing which some find ineffective or uncomfortable.
This treatment also includes a lovely facial drainage massage to support the clearing of the sinuses.

"Reiki" (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy', a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of well being and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts of the body. It is also possible to receive Reiki at a distance.
Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers, who have trained in the tradition passed on, in person, from Master to student. Students go through a process of initiation/attunement to the Reiki energy. They are then able to treat themselves and others, not only from a personal and emotional perspective, but also as an aid to individual development and spiritual growth.

Reflexology is a thumb pressure technique that stimulates pressure points on the feet. Sensitive trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances. Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Some practitioners may also include work on points found in the face and ears. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
During a typical reflexology session, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks.
In this deeply relaxing treatment we also include a luxurious massage of the lower legs, supporting circulation further enhancing your treatment.
Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapist’s expert touch will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of well being.

I had a Hopi ear candling treatment following a bout of vertigo. I've never had the treatment before so I was a little bit wary. Amita put me totally at ease whilst she worked on my ears and then followed this with a relaxing head and face massage. Such a lovely treatment and it's definitely made a positive difference to how I feel. Fabulous, thank you.
