"Before having my ears candled my head was always thick and heavy, almost as if my head was filled with sand and my sinuses always felt like there was a heavy load of pressure on them. Having my ears candled made me feel as though my head was as light as a feather and I no longer have pain or discomfort in my sinuses. I can breath through my nose and my hay-fever is half as bad as it used to be. The feeling after an ear candling session is almost addictive, when you get that first rush of air up your nostrils you wonder how you ever coped before you met Kerry."

"My son used to suffer with really bad chest infections when he got a cold. (Sometimes they would even turn into an Asthma attack.) The muck from his nose used to run down the back of his throat and go down onto his chest, and cause an infection. Since Kerry has been candling his ears, he very rarely gets and cold, and when he does, it hardly ever goes down onto his chest. I also cannot believe how much wax and muck comes out of his ears. I highly recommend ear candling to anyone who has sinus & cold problems. My whole family has their ears candled 2/3 times per year."
