Shiatsu comes from Japan. The word Shiatsu means “finger pressure”. Like acupuncture, shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional oriental medicine, which works on the flow of energy that circulates through our bodies in specific energy channels or meridians.
Similar to reflexology, Shiatsu massage uses finger and palm pressure to energize these pathways and improve the flow of energy. Pressure on these points may help to move toxins that have become stagnant with lack of use, disease or trauma.

Many people have found ear candling useful in assisting:
- Drying excess ear wax to allow it to fall out
- Drying debris from past and current infections
- Drying fluid in the ear canal
(especially people who swim or surf a lot)
- Relief of ear infection or sinus pain caused by blockages which brings about excess pressure
It is thought these benefits are achieved through circulating warm smoke in the ear canal. This can be an effective treatment, gentle enough for use on children and for those with painful ear infections.
Hearing aid wearers, swimmers, divers and surfers also find it helpful. It can also be a useful treatment prior to flying.
