Watch “Hopi Ear Candle” on YouTube – my video on the benefits

I just love Hopi Ear candle treatment. There are so. Many wonderful healing benefits that go way beyond the physical.

My video on the benefits of this treatment are above. I am in the middle of designing a training course for this treatment. I have been qualified since about 2007 and it’s such a great treatment to both give and receive.

My kids have been getting this treatment since they were just 3 years old. When my daughter is one plane she used to scream so bad as her ears hurt when landing. If I give her hopi ear candle the night before we fly she has little pain. She also just loves this treatment. I know 3 years old sounds so young but if your child is able to lie down without too much wriggling then it’s a fab treatment for them.

Benefits include: ear wax removal, eases sinusitis and labrynthitis, tension and migraine headaches reduction in pain, relaxation and much more. Cleanse and detoxification.

You can purchase hopu Ear candles online but I wouldn’t advise doing this yourself as can be dangerous.

Sauna Blankets –Far Infra Red Heat

Some 12 years ago I purchased my first Sauna Blanket.  My reasons were purely for weightloss and detoxification.  I hadn’t read up too much about the other benefits so I was in for a great surprise when I realised that it was much more than simple weight loss product.

After a few years I bought another one to use in my salon to combine it with wrap treatments and used after/before some massage treatments.  I now use it daily just to keep clients cosy whilst they are getting treatments such a brows/reflexology/facials etc.

My sister also bought one and she uses her blanket about 3 times a week.  She suffers with fibromyalgia and says this is a god send for her pain.

Benefits of Sauna Blankets –

Improves Appearance Of Skin And Cellulite

The profuse sweating after just a few minutes in your Clearlight sauna increases blood circulation and has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. The sweating also carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. More… 

Reduces Stress And Fatigue

Relax in your Clearlight sauna as the stresses and tensions of every day life melt away! Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of your sauna and you’ll feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. It’s like having a day spa in your home. More…

Eases Arthritis, Joint Pain And Stiffness

Radiant heat has been effective in the treatment of arthritis, sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with ageing is reduced or eliminated. More…

Improves Cardiac Health and Lowers blood pressure

Research has shown that sauna therapy reduces systolic blood pressure because the heat dilates blood vessels and reduces the volume of the inner lining of the vessels, thus promoting healthy blood pressure. Anything you can do to keep your blood pressure in the healthy range reduces your chance of heart attack and stroke.

Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology
Reflexology applies pressure to a range of particular points on your hands and feet that correspond with all the organs, glands, tissues and muscles in your body. This helps improve circulation of blood, oxygen and ‘qi’ around the body, relieving stress and healing pain in other parts of the body.

What is reflexology?
We are all familiar with the classic ‘knee-jerk’ response – the doctor taps the patient below the knee, and his lower leg bounces up into the air – if you do something to one part of the body you can cause a reaction in another part.

Reflexology applies this response to the whole body. By applying pressure to points on your feet and hands, you can treat and heal problems elsewhere in the body.
Reflexology is based on similar principles to acupuncture and some types of massage – that our bodies are mapped by channels of energy, or “qi” (pronounced “chee’); we feel pain, or generally unwell, when the flow of that energy is blocked in some way. By putting pressure on one part of these channels, the reflexologist sends an impulse or message all the way along it, which unblocks it and encourages the energy to flow freely again.

This in turn brings us back into good health and a sense of balance and well-being, and stimulates our body’s own healing responses.

What is reflexology good for?
Many people go to see a reflexologist as they might go for a massage: to help with their general health, and to make them feel relaxed and calm. But because it is such a comprehensive treatment, reflexology can help you in many other ways, with anything from a trapped nerve to depression.
Reflexology is recommended by doctors for a variety of conditions, including:
back pain and muscle strain
sports injuries
stress
anxiety and depression
sleep and eating disorders
poor circulation
irritable bowel syndrome
migraine
pre-menstrual tension
symptoms of the menopause
breathing difficulties such as asthma

Before you go
It doesn’t really matter what you wear when you go for reflexology, as they will focus mainly on your feet, and then possibly hands. Out of courtesy and kindness of course, it is a good idea to make sure that your feet are clean and fragrant!

Precautions
You should always let your therapist know:
of any medical conditions you have, and treatment or medication you are receiving
if you are, or think you might be, pregnant
if you have recently had an operation or surgery
if you have had any injuries that might affect your treatment – such as a recently healed broken ankle
as this may affect the type of treatment you can have.
What to expect from reflexology
On the first visit, the reflexologist will chat with you about your general health and lifestyle.

Reflexology is not a foot massage. The reflexologist may massage your feet a little to relax you before they start, but the technique itself is about applying firm pressure to specific points on the foot.
The technique can feel a bit odd at first; it can also be a bit overwhelming. Imagine a pain you have had for years in your shoulder melting away in seconds as someone puts pressure on the ball of your foot! Tension can be released, and pain dissolved, very quickly.

A treatment session usually lasts for about an hour. You will probably get a lot out of a single session but you may want to have several more.

Afterwards

You are likely to feel very relaxed after a session; you may feel like having a snooze or a long bath, and luxuriating in the feeling a bit longer. On the other hand, depending on your treatment, you may feel really energised. Some people even feel tearful afterwards, just from the release of tension.

Your reaction is not always predictable but the likelihood is that you’ll feel much better when you come out than you did when you went in.
