Good Day!
I thought I would share a new offer with you for June.
I have been chatting with various people who are all saying a very similar thing, “my nose is constantly blocked” or “my nose is constantly running”, “my ears are so blocked” “another headache”, “this cattarh is getting on my nerves” “my sinuses really hurt”, and quite a few more comments similar to these.

There has been a very nasty ‘flu type virus’ doing the rounds and that leaves you feeling utterly fatigued, cattarh, stuffed nose and blocked ears and sinus pains to name but a few symptoms!

But the same can be said now for allergies, they also can make us feel so awful, with congestion, sinus pains, headaches and more..we are coming out of Pollen Season into Grass Season for allergies and people are suffering far more now than 4 decades ago, here in France!

I was really surprised to learn that, “Allergy” is considered as the 4th chronic disease in the world and its prevalence is constantly increasing, especially in France and in Europe. While in 1970 it was estimated at 2-3% on the national territory, it is now about 25-30%.


These allergies are not just from Pollen/Trees/Grass however, they can also be induced by Air pollutants, poor indoor air quality, dietary changes and we have to acknowledge, climate change as one of the reasons!

The lengthening of the seasons as well as the global increase in temperature contribute to the lengthening of pollination periods. In addition, the extent of geographical areas affected by high concentrations of pollens in the air is increasing: under the impact of global warming, species such as Ragweed (not to be mistaken for Golden Rod!) is spreading into Europe and, you guessed it,  ragweed pollen is among the most problematic in France!

You can check on this weather site if you put in your post code you will find that there is a graphic showing which pollens are high day by day, for instance today the outlook for grass pollen:

Tonight: Very High
Tomorrow: Very High
Sunday: Very High

Finally, a higher concentration of carbon dioxide in the air favors the production of pollens, leading to an increase in allergic symptoms.

Because we tend to either “just get on with it” or take medications we tend to forget that there could be other solutions.

And this is one of mine, Hopi Ear Candling and here’s the reasons why:

Ear Candling has been used for conditions such as sinusitis, rhinitis, tinnitus, vertigo, headache/migraine, excessive wax, allergies and hay fever, TMJ pain & lymphatic circulation.

• Pain and congestion in the ears and head following flying and diving.
• Snoring
• Insomnia – many clients fall asleep during the treatment.
• Tinnitus
• Compacted earwax which gradually softened and was expelled from the ears after several treatments.
• Migraine and tension headaches
• Sinus problems
• Stress & tension – many clients find the treatment extremely relaxing and some have it for this reason only!

Can massage therapy help allergies?

Certain massage techniques can enhance lymphatic drainage, the system in the body that is responsible for filtering and removing waste products from the body, including allergens. By promoting more efficient lymphatic flow, massage might help in flushing out allergens faster, and in turn, alleviating symptoms.

How does lymphatic drainage help allergies?

The lymphatic system when stimulated will be better prepared to handle the influx of histamines and help flush them through your system faster. Also clearing any lingering congestion before the season starts will help prevent those areas from getting worse when the body reacts to the allergens.

What are the Benefits of Ear Candling?
Having the word ‘ear’ in the treatment title gives the illusion that it is used primarily just to treat ear conditions but that is not always the case, as the treatment can relieve conditions affecting the ear, such as ear-aches, tinnitus, excessive earwax, and glue ear. It also benefits other conditions that affect the head area such as colds, hay fever, headaches, sinus problems, Vertigo and snoring and above all is an extremely relaxing treatment.

They can help to relieve some of the symptoms, including itchy ears. This is common when you have a viral infection or sinus infection. They can also relieve the itchiness from allergies, including hay fever and dietary allergies.

Following the HOPI candling you will be offered a 10 minute facial steam and that is followed by a lovely gentle facial massage, which works around the sinus areas, some of the facial meridians and your vagus nerve plus lymphatic drainage will be added. To complete your HOPI TREATments I will use crystal rollers – this you can choose which ones, they are used along with a lovely facial oil blend, and lastly a scalp massage. All this works in tandem with the Hopi candling and eases the symptons you are suffering from.

A facial and Scalp massage with an Essential Oil Blend made of my trinity of EO’s for Hopi Ear Candling are:
Lemon: cleansing to the body’s systems and frequently used for respiratory discomfort.

Lavender: renowned for its calming and balancing effects. Lavender may help soothe your symptoms during allergy season thanks to its ability to calm and reduce inflammation.

Peppermint: promotes clear breathing and healthy respiratory function.

All massage therapy is completely safe and complementary, but it must not replace with any medical treatment. Regular massage can give the body and mind a great feeling of well being.
