Acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s 'qi', or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, an acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of qi to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Ear candling is a time honoured technique used to remove ear wax. This treatment draws wax and other impurities from the ear channel due to the partial vacuum created in the base of a tapered candle which is inserted into the ear opening. This is far more comfortable than conventional ear cleaning where water is forced into the ear, and is a gently effective remedy for hearing impairment due to ear wax build up.
