During the treatment, pauses of several minutes are important to allow the body to absorb and respond to the moves.

After Two treatments and advise about exercise, I have no more pain!"

Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi ear candling is a very safe therapy and its popularity is growing as more people become aware of its positive benefits.
The process of Hopi ear candling involves specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the suction that is formed draws the impurities from within the ear. This process is known as the chimney effect. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and also helps to regulate ear pressure. A small amount of ear wax is also removed during the treatment.
Reiki, meaning "universal life force energy", aims to improve health and enhance the quality of life.
It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
Reiki will improve the results of all medical treatment, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress, and help create optimism.
During a Reiki treatment, the patient usually lies fully clothed on a padded table in a warm, comfortable room. A thorough session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.
