EAR CANDLING

Hopi ear candling (also known as thermal-auricular therapy) is a safe and entirely natural therapy.

 

The benefits of this soothing and calming treatment include clearer hearing by removing excess wax, a sharpened sense of smell and taste, and improvement to inner ear balance (which is beneficial for post driving and post flight pressure).                                          

The origins of ear candling have been handed down through many civilisations starting with the Ancient Greeks over three thousand years ago, the Egyptians, Chinese, East Indians and Tibetans also used them for cleansing, purifying and healing both on a spiritual and practical level. More recently, the candles were used by the shaman healers of the Hopi Indian tribe, in medicinal ceremonies and initiations to clear negative energies from the head and aura.

MORE ABOUT EAR CANDLING

Your treatment starts with a relaxing acupressure massage to the head and face; this is very effective for lymphatic and sinus drainage. The ear candle is then lit and positioned gently inside your ear, just enough so a seal is made and it is comfortable. As the candle’s flame warms the air within the candle, it in turn warms the air inside the ear (this will be undetectable to you). Any impurities and excess ear wax are gently warmed and drawn up into the candle; similar to a chimney effect. Gentle vibrations act to softly massage the ear, and the rising air helps to regulate pressure. It is a very relaxing and therapeutic feeling.

At Zensations, only Biosun manufactured ear candles are used for your health and safety; these have been certified with the CE mark according to the European Medical Device Directive. They are handmade, using 100% natural ingredients such as cotton, beeswax, honey, sage, chamomile and St. John’s wort, true to the original Hopi Indian tradition.

    Jen Smith

  • If you want a little piece of Heaven, take a trip to see Sally at Zensations and try the Reflexology. I guarantee you will walk out after your session feeling like you are floating on air. Your feet will feel like cushions and you'll sleep like a baby. This is a very professional set up, with low lighting, soothing music, amazing scents and the warmest, comfiest treatment bed you'll ever find. I went as a one-off treat to myself and now I admit I'm hooked. I would recommend this treatment to anyone. Amazing!

    Janet Thompson

  • The lady with the magic fingertips that is my name for Sally. For some time I have been having trouble with my knee, dreading the thought of having a knee replacement. I was searching the web for answers when I came across Zensations, so I contacted them and I was assured that they could probably do something for me. My first visit I was given a very thorough assessment of my whole body and all my little niggles I was suffering from. So I decided to go ahead with the treatment which was fully explained to me, and believe me after one treatment on my knee I could walk a reasonable distance without a limp, with further improvements over the next four weeks. Sally has not only sorted out my knee but also all my other little niggles, amazing lady, I shall keep up treatments in the future.

    Terence Freeman

  • I immediately felt at ease when I visited for the first time. Sally is very skilled at remedial massage and acupuncture. She took a lot of time to understand the problem and give the treatment. I started to feel the benefits the next day and had further improvements after each session. I would thoroughly recommend Sally.

    Carol Leak

  • A fantastic experience from online booking through to the after service. Not only do you get one of the most robust, targeted and non-hurried massages going (I have the remedial sessions), but there's lots of science stuff to go with it. So when you have an ache, you don't just get a knot worked on, you get a proper explanation of what's going on with your posture to create it in the first place, a look at an iPad app with photos of posture and detailed background, then a massage focussed on that issue, as well as some exercises emailed home afterwards so that you try and fix what the issue was over the long term. Plus the room itself is really lovely, modern and relaxing, and Sally is a very welcoming, skilled practitioner. Can't think why you'd want to get a massage anywhere else!
